Actor George Clooney’s wife Amal has given birth to twins, the couple’s publicist said.
According to Stan Rosenfield, Ella and Alexander Clooney were born in a London hospital on Tuesday morning.
He said the babies were both “happy, healthy and doing fine”, and joked: “George is sedated and should recover in a few days.”
The news comes weeks after Gravity star Clooney told the media that he was well prepared for fatherhood.
He told US site Extra: “I know what I’m in for,” and said of his wife: “She is amazing. I don’t have anything to do.”
The actor, 56, married the lawyer, 39, at a lavish Venice wedding in September 2014.
Clooney, 56, and lawyer Amal Alamuddin, 39, married in 2014. The twins, born in a London hospital, are the first children for both. The Clooneys had been living in London while awaiting the arrival of their son and daughter.
