George Clooney and wife Amal have welcomed their twins.
The couple became proud parents to a boy and a girl on Tuesday.
An email sent by the couple’s publicist confirmed their names and joked that George had to be ‘sedated’ because the birth was so intense.
They said: ‘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.’
Ella and Alexander Clooney – we love it. Congrats!
Rumours were rife that Amal was close to giving birth after George skipped the Aurora Price For Awakening Humanity event in Armenia last week.
He joked at the time that he would be in the doghouse if he attended and missed the birth.
Amal’s pregnancy was revealed back in February, and an insider said at the time that the fact they were expecting a boy and a girl made the couple feel like they’d ‘hit the family jackpot’.
George and Amal have been married since 2014.
