Almost upstaging the news that George and Amal Clooney have welcomed twins into the world is how the actor announced it Tuesday.
“Ella, Alexander and Amal are all healthy, happy and doing fine. George is sedated and should recover in a few days,” said the now famous quote via a spokesman.
Sedated or not, “George is going to be a great father of twins,” a source close to the family told People.com.
“Sources confirmed in February that the Oscar-winning actor-director and the international human-rights lawyer were expecting. George, 56, Amal, 39, and their families are ‘all very happy,’ a source said at the time.”
The one-time world’s sexiest bachelor is a first-time father.
Before the kids were christened Ella and Alexander, he joked about naming rights.
“My wife says I can’t name [the twins] Casa and Amigos,” he told Entertainment Tonight in March, a reference to his Casamigos tequila brand. “That’s the one thing I’m not allowed to do.”
