Amal Clooney gives birth to twins Ella and Alexander
Amal Clooney has given birth to twins Ella and Alexander, their publicist said.
The 39-year-old human rights barrister, who wed George Clooney in Venice in 2014, gave birth in a hospital in London.
This morning Amal and George welcomed Ella and Alexander Clooney into their lives. Ella, Alexander and Amal are all healthy, happy and doing fine," publicist Stan Rosenfield said.
He added cheekily: "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."
George revealed in February that they would be avoiding conflict zones like South Sudan or Iraq when they become parents, Amal will continue her work - which includes representing Nobel Peace Prize nominee Nadia Murad in a case against Isis - when she returns from maternity leave.
"She plans to be back at work around six months after giving birth, but her schedule will be greatly different than before - a lot of time spent working at home. She has a great office setup at the Sonning house," the insider added.
The couple currently have homes in Lake Como, Italy, Los Angeles and the UK, but said they would need to settle down in one place when it came time to their children attending school.
"We have the chance to live between three countries: Italy, America and England. But as soon as the children go to school, it’ll be necessary to choose where to settle. In the meantime, we will continue to move according to our respective schedules," George told Paris Match magazine.
"People think we are never together, but we have not been separated for more than a week."
