"This morning Amal and George welcomed Ella and Alexander Clooney into their lives. Ella, Alexander and Amal are all healthy, happy and doing fine. George is sedated and should recover in a few days," George's rep said in a statement to People.
The couple was reportedly staying at their home in Sonning, England leading up to the birth. In late March, Cindy Crawford, a pal of the couple, hinted on Instagram that they were expecting a boy and a girl with a pair of strategically colored onesies.
News of the Clooney’s two new additions to the family went public in February, after The Talk co-host Julie Chen announced Amal was expecting on air. “"Beyoncé is not the only superstar expecting twins—congratulations are in order for George and Amal Clooney," Chen said on the talk show. "The Talk has confirmed that the 55-year-old superstar and his highly accomplished 39-year-old attorney wife are expecting twins. Give her the armrest, by the way, she's pregnant!"
A source told E! News in April that the couple planned for Amal to give birth to the children in the United Kingdom, where they will be raised for the first years of their lives. Amal herself grew up in the U.K., and her legal practice is based in London. E! also reports that while she does plan to go on maternity leave, the new mom has no intention of permanently leaving her work as a human rights lawyer.
George and Amal first met in 2013. The two wed a year later in Venice before a crowd of Hollywood A-listers.
Congratulations to the recently doubled-in-size family!
