Award-winning Hollywood actor George Clooney and his human rights lawyer wife Amal are expecting twins, according to US media reports.

The babies are due in June, said CBS's 'The Talk' host Julie Chen.

Another source close to the couple, quoted by 'People' magazine, said they were "very happy".

The Clooneys' representatives have not yet commented.

The couple married in Venice in 2014 with a star-studded list of guests who included Matt Damon and Bill Murray.

Rumours that they might be expecting began to circulate last month when Mrs Clooney was spotted wearing a loose-fitting dress.

These will be the first children for both the Oscar-winning producer and actor (55) and his 39-year-old wife.

They are said to be expecting a boy and a girl, TMZ reported, noting that rumours about the pregnancy came up after Amal was spotted with a baby bump in London last month while their Clooney Foundation for Justice hosted a screening of the Netflix documentary 'The White Helmets'.

Amal "has let everyone in both families know quietly," a source close to the couple told 'People'. "They're all very happy."

Mrs Clooney has represented a number of high profile figures, including former Ukrainian Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko and Australian Wikileaks founder Julian Assange.

Her efforts against the Isil militant group have been internationally recognised.
