George Clooney and his wife Amal Clooney just welcomed twins last week, and even though the former bachelor swore he’d never remarry or have children, he clearly changed his mind when he met his gorgeous wife! Now, sources reveal to In Touch that the 56-year-old actor immediately turned into a doting father when he witnessed their birth — and the new dad got extremely emotional when he met his babies for the first time!
“He just melted. He couldn’t say anything,” says an insider. “George knew he was going to get emotional, but this was just ridiculous. He was completely overwhelmed, crying tears of joy.”
Amal gave birth to daughter Ella and son Alexander via a planned C-section on Tuesday, June 6 in London. The new family of four is planning to stay in England for a little while longer before they decide to bring them over to the United States, but an insider explains that friends and family are more than welcome to visit Ella and Alexander at the Clooney home.
George’s 83-year-old father Nick and 78-year-old mother Nina have yet to meet their grandchildren in person, but they have seen them via Skype from the comfort of their home in Kentucky, and Nick couldn’t help but gush over his grandbabies.
“The babies are just beautiful. They have dark hair,” Nick tells In Touch. “Nina swears…the little boy looks like he has [George’s nose].”
In Touch previously revealed that George and Amal were expecting twins back in January, and a close friend of the attorney said that even they were surprised that they would be welcoming not one, but two bundles of joy.
"When George and Amal found out it was twins they were surprised, but also a little scared because they both had said that one was enough,” the source revealed at the time.
But now that they’re here, both Amal and George are completely over the moon. Congrats to the happy family!
