Well, it looks like twins are the hot new celebrity trend for 2017!
Just days after the world learned that Beyonce is pregnant with not one but two future music icons, People magazine is confirming that George and Amal Clooney are expecting a couple special deliveries of their own.
The magazine is reporting today that "multiple sources" have confirmed Amal is expecting twins.
The Clooneys have yet to comment themselves, but People isn’t Star magazine, and they wouldn’t put something like this out there without sufficient confirmation.
Apparently, insiders revealed that George and Amal have both shared the news with their families and are preparing a public announcement for sometime in the days to come.
“They’re all very happy," says one source.
George and Amal married in 2014 after what we believe was just over a year of dating.
(They’re notoriously private about their relationship.)
The couple’s engagement came as a shock to fans, due to George’s reputation as the archetypal Hollywood bachelor.
(In fact, he’s been married once before, so that image was never entirely accurate.)
Despite the fact that she’s remained committed to her challenging and time-consuming career as a human rights attorney, rumors that Amal was pregnant began circulating pretty much from the time the Clooneys got hitched.
Now, it looks as though both George and Amal will be getting a crash course in parenting.
George has addressed the possibility of fatherhood in the past but always seemed to remain guarded on the topic:
“All I know is that it sort of changed everything in terms of what I thought my future – my future personal future – was going to be,” he told People shortly after his wedding.
“I’ve always been an optimist about the world. I wasn’t always completely optimistic about how it was going to work out personally for me. But now I am.”
Speaking more specifically about the idea of fatherhood after receiving the magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive title for the second time, Clooney said:
“I think it’s the most responsible thing you can do, to have kids. It’s not something to be taken lightly."
“I don’t have that gene that people have to replicate. But everything in my life has changed over time.”
Congrats to the happy couple.
We’re sure they’ll excel at parenting the same way they’ve excelled at … well, just about everything else in life.
