George and Amal Clooney Welcome Twins, Ella and Alexander

George and Amal Clooney Welcome Twins, Ella and Alexander

Amal Clooney gave birth to twins, a boy and a girl, on Tuesday, according to her husband George Clooney's publicist, the first children for the international human rights lawyer and her movie star spouse.

“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 in an email.

Amal Clooney and the Oscar-winning star of films like Ocean's Eleven and Three Kings married in Italy in 2014, making them one of the world's biggest celebrity couples.

Rosenfield did not mention where the twins were born but the couple appear to have been spending most of their time in England, where they have several homes. The couple adopted a low profile during the pregnancy, keeping the news private for months before it was confirmed in February by the actor’s close friend, Matt Damon.

People magazine reported on Tuesday that former US President Barack Obama paid a visit to the Clooneys at their home in the countryside west of London on May 27.

George Clooney canceled a visit to Armenia for a humanitarian event this past weekend, saying in a message to organisers that "if I came there and my wife had twins while I was there, I could never come home."
