While George has a reputation as a childless bachelor, the baby news has undoubtedly changed him.

“He’s gone from never wanting to be a father to being totally excited about Amal’s pregnancy and the thought of raising two children who will call him Dad,” the insider tells In Touch. “He’s been doting on Amal’s every need and talking to her belly.
