A French magazine called Voici has shared the first photos of George and Amal Clooney’s baby twins.
Much to the actor's understandable chagrin.
The famous couple welcomed their kids into the world early last month, with sources confirming at the time that they were named Ella and Alexander.
But neither George nor Amal has spoken out in any kind of detail about the kids, while not sharing pictures of the children on social media, either.
They have done all they can to keep information about the twins as private as possible.
On the cover of this random publication, however, we see one photo of Clooney holding a twin and another of Amal cradling what appears to be her daughter.
The stars are at the actor's Lake Como estate in Italy’s Lombardy region in the controversial images.
You can see them here:
The magazine may have messed with the wrong superstar, though.
Clooney isn't sitting back and letting this privacy violation simply take place without having his say, both verbally and possibly in a court of law.
The 56-year-old actor said on Friday that he has plans to prosecute the French outlet for secretly taking and publishing paparazzi pics of his newborn twins.
Clooney said the following in a statement:
"Over the last week photographers from Voici magazine scaled our fence, climbed our tree and illegally took pictures of our infants inside our home."
"Make no mistake the photographers, the agency and the magazine will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law."
"The safety of our children demands it."
Clooney has always been outspoken, especially when it comes to the paparazzi and its treatment of celebrities around the world.
Three days after Princess Diana was killed in a car accident, following a high-speed chase with photographers, Clooney held a press conference and said the following:
Princess Di is dead. And who should we see about that?
The driver of the car, the paparazzis, or the magazines and papers who purchase these pictures and make bounty hunters out of photographers.
The same magazines, television shows, and papers that use their pages creating the news, causing altercations and then filming them.
Well you must be exhilarated.
You bought and paid for one of the greatest news stories of the year… You’ve deflected responsibility. Yet I wonder how you sleep at night.
You should be ashamed.
I watch as you scramble for high ground, saying that you won’t purchase these pictures. Pictures of a dying Princess trapped in her car.
I’m impressed. What ethics!
Upon hearing the news and what Clooney had to say about this development, the publication responded that it did nothing wrong.
Alleging that the couple's status as public figures justifies this, Voici released the following statement to Entertainment Tonight:
"George and Amal Clooney have been very public personalities for the last few years."
"Their wedding in Venice, in September 2014, was a very mediatic event, the pictures of them smiling to the public were seen all around the world."
"The birth of their twins, Ella and Alexander, had also been commented a lot, by themselves and their families."
"The images published in Voici this Friday are a response to a public demand."
"People love George Clooney and have been following his life story for years now."
The publication also insisted that at no point will the celebrities or their offspring be in danger as a result of satisfying this public demand:
"Those pictures do not put in danger Mr Clooney, his wife or their kids."
Somehow we doubt George sees it that way.
