The Clooneys who were married in 2014 at a star-studded wedding in Venice, Italy welcomed the birth of their twins this morning as news powered that the couple were expecting surfaced in February.. This good news was passed out by the couple’s spokesman as he reported “This morning Amal and George welcomed Ella and Alexander Clooney into their lives. Ella, Alexander and Amal are all healthy, happy and doing fine. George is sedated and should recover in a few days,”
The couple got engaged in April the same year, after a whirlwind courtship of nearly seven months. While it is Amal’s first marriage, it is the second time for George. Both however, are first time parents as George didn’t have a child from his previous marriage.The twins were born in London but no further birth details were given.
Many contributors praised the choice of names as a refreshingly normal departure from a trend that has seen celebrity babies given names like Apple, Audio, Bronx, North West and Rocket.
“Good lord, the Clooneys have given their twins lovely ordinary names. Shocking. And they call themselves celebrities…,” wrote British journalist Nicola Jane Swinney on Twitter.
Comedian Ellen DeGeneres posted a Twitter message saying, “Congratulations, George and Amal, or as I’m now calling you, Ocean’s Four.”
Congratulations also came from actress Mia Farrow and U.S. journalist Katie Couric.
