While George Clooney had made it clear that growing his family hasn't been a huge priority, the movie star has had a change of heart. So much so that a little less than a year into marriage, he and wife Amal Clooney are repotedly trying to have a baby.

A source close to the couple told Us Weekly that apparently Clooney is now ready to have a little one. "They decided that it would be the right time," the insider revealed. "Amal isn't taking on extra work at the moment and just continuing with the cases she has."

The high-profile duo wants to have the baby in London by next year, just in time for their $15 million renovation on their English countryside home to be completed. "The building plans include a nursery," another insider noted of the gigantic, 9,000-square foot estate. "They hope to have all the work done by Christmas."

And apparently, they're taking this very seriously. "They recently visited a fertility center," a third source added. "This is something they really want."

So, what convinced Clooney to finally decide he's ready to be a dad? His friends. "He loves the relationships his friends have with their kids," and would love to have that himself. "George is ready for this step and he thinks that Amal will be a great mother."

We can only imagine great parents they'd make! We're looking forward to an upcoming pregnancy announcement.
