Just a little more than a week after Beyoncé and Jay Z announced that they were expecting twins, another Hollywood super-couple, George and Amal Clooney, are reportedly also going to be blessed with a double delivery.
The news was revealed on Thursday’s episode of CBS’ “The Talk” when host Julie Chen announced that Clooney, 55, had told her in January that the couple would be welcoming two babies in June.
“Beyoncé is not the only superstar expecting twins,” Chen said on the show. “Congratulations are in order for George and Amal Clooney!”
People.com also reported the news.
Over the past month rumors began circulating that Amal, 39, a Lebanese-born human rights lawyer, might be pregnant after she was spotted on several occasions, including last week at a Barcelona airport, wearing loosefitting garments.
This is the first pregnancy for the couple, who were married in September 2014 in Venice before such A-list guests as Bono, Matt Damon, Bill Murray, and Emily Blunt and John Krasinski.
Since they tied the knot, the media has been curious about when the couple would start a family. Two years ago on “CBS This Morning,” Clooney was asked by anchor Charlie Rose if he’s ever considered fatherhood.
“Not really,” replied Clooney, who then added “I mean, I’ve thought about it, I suppose, but it hasn’t been high on my list. I’ve been asked it a lot lately, because I’ve gotten married and I am doing a movie with kids in it,” referring to the fantasy adventure “Tomorrowland.”
The “Ocean’s Eleven” star has been tight-lipped about his private life, though he made quip about his marriage in October shortly after celebrating his two-year anniversary.
“And they said it wouldn’t last,” he told “Entertainment Tonight” at an L.A. benefit. “Ah, we proved them wrong!”
Neither Clooney nor his wife has yet to issue a statement about the upcoming births.
