Congratulations Amal and George Clooney!
It seems Hollywood is having something of a baby boom recently as George Clooney and his wife Amal Clooney become the latest stars to reveal that they are expecting twins. According to reports, they are expecting their bundle of joy in early summer.
Amal Clooney and George Clooney have twins on the way
Despite having had numerous high profile relationships and marriages over the year, the 'Hail, Caesar!' actor has never gone down the road of parenthood. Until now! He wed the love of his life - human rights lawyer Amal Alamuddin - in 2014, and their beautiful union has culminated in the conception of twin Clooneys!
'[Amal] has let everyone in both families know quietly', a source told People. 'They're all very happy.'
George and Amal got married in a gloriously romantic ceremony in Venice in September 2014, officiated by their friend and the former mayor of Rome Walter Veltroni, where hey were surrounded by a number of famous friends including Cindy Crawford, Bono, Emily Blunt and Matt Damon.
'I was working with him last fall, and he pulled me aside on set, and I mean, I almost started crying', Matt Damon revealed to ET about hearing the news for the first time. 'I was so happy for him. And I was like, 'How far along is she?' and he goes, 'eight weeks'. [I said] 'Are you out of your mind?! Don't tell anybody else! Don't you know the 12-week rule?' Like, of course he doesn't.'

Never mind the 12-week rule, it's turned into the 5-month rule as the media only got wind of the news yesterday (February 10th 2017). While neither party have been parents before, they do have a rescue dog which they adopted together from the San Gabriel Valley Humane Society; a bassett hound called Millie.
Julie Chen also opened up about the news on 'The Talk'. 'Now, what we did find out that no one else is reporting is that the twins are due this June', she said.
Another famous couple who are expecting twins over the coming months are Jay Z and Beyonce, who announced their happy news on February 1st 2017.
