George and Amal Clooney are expecting twins this June. The Talk host Julie Chen confirmed the news and congratulated the couple during Thursday’s TV show. The Clooneys are going to have a boy and a girl.
It has earlier been reported even by this news site that Amal, an international human rights lawyer, is expecting. This was after she was photographed wearing baggy clothes during the screening for the Netflix documentary The White Helmets on Jan. 9. The lawyer has always donned tight-fitting dresses.
George And Amal Clooney Underwent IVF?
So, yes, Beyonce and Jay Z are not the only power couple expecting twins. George and Amal Clooney will welcome their very own this June. The big questions is: Did Amal undergo in vitro fertilization or IVF?
Fans are speculating whether or not the human rights lawyer underwent the procedure because of her age. She is 39 years old. Also, there are unsubstantiated claims back in October 2016 that she’s about to go through it.
Reportedly, she and George tried to conceive all summer, but to no avail. This is quite a surprise, considering that the Ocean’s actor has been very vocal about not wanting to have kids. In an earlier interview, he said that having kids is a gigantic and wonderful responsibility he doesn’t think he wants.
Of course, he also famously said he doesn’t want to marry again after his failed one with Talia Balsam. But, he married Amal in 2014. George said that he likes playing with his friends’ kids, and treats them like his nieces and nephews.
“You can play with them — they’re like nieces and nephews — and then you pump them full of sugar and shove them back to the parents.”
Matt Damon Happy For George And Amal
Matt Damon, a close friend of George, learned about Amal’s pregnancy last fall. In fact, he was the one who advised the actor not to tell anyone until they entered the “safe zone” of pregnancy. Damon remembered that he almost started crying after George told him.
A father of four, Damon is no stranger to kids. He told Clooney to “just shut up” about the happy news and wait for Amal to reach her 12th week. George told him about the pregnancy when Amal was on her eight week.
Damon said he couldn’t be more excited about George and Amal Clooney. He added that they are going to be wonderful parents, and their kids will be the luckiest.
