Well, it’s official: 

There are more Clooneys in the world than there were yesterday, and that can’t be a bad thing.

Yes, George Clooney’s publicist Stan Rosenfield revealed moments ago that the actor and wife Amal Clooney have welcomed a set of healthy, happy twins – one boy and one girl:

"This morning Amal and George welcomed Ella and Alexander Clooney into their lives. Ella, Alexander and Amal are all healthy, happy and doing fine," the rep said in a statement.

"George is sedated and should recover in a few days," Rosenfield joked.

The couple – usually secretive with regard to their personal lives – have been surprisingly open about the process of starting a family together.

Reps revealed that Amal was pregnant with twins back in February. 

Shortly thereafter, Clooney spoke about the prospect of becoming a father for the first time at the age of 55 in a surprisingly candid interview:

“We are really happy and really excited. It’s going to be an adventure,” Clooney said at the time.

"I don’t know how you fully digest [having two], but I’m excited. It will be fun."

We’ve known for months that George and Amal are expecting a boy and girl, but their names were kept under wraps until today.

"My wife says I can’t name them Casa and Amigos. That’s the one thing I’m not allowed to do," George previously joked, in reference to the tequila brand he co-owns.

There’s been no information regarding where the births took place (the Clooneys are a famously jet-setting couple), but insiders say mother and children are all resting comfortably.

While the Clooney’s never announced Amal’s due date, the highly-regarded human rights attorney hosted a lavish birthday bash for George last month, and one of her guests spilled the beans:

"Amal is due any day now. They’re just waiting at this point," the insider told E! News. 

"Technically her due date is [in June], but they expect the twins to come early. It’s just a waiting game now."

Our heartfelt congrats go out to one of Hollywood’s most enduringly cool couples.

Little Alexander and Ella have certainly hit the parental jackpot.
