Report: George, Amal Clooney plan to adopt a child from war-torn country
The couple is considering adoption as a way “to highlight the plight of orphans in countries like Syria”
Three months after their marriage, George and Amal Clooney are planning to expand their family by adopting a child from a war-torn country, the British Daily Mail newspaper reported Sunday.
The Hollywood hunk and his wife, a prominent British lawyer of Lebanese descent, are considering adoption as a way “to highlight the plight of orphans in countries like Syria,” the newspaper quoted entertainment magazine Woman’s Day Magazine as saying.
The United Nations has estimated that more than 191,000 have been killed in Syria, with reports of children being tortured.
The couple, who exchanged vows at the seven-star Aman Canal Grande Hotel in Venice, celebrated their honeymoon in the Seychelles.
The ceremony was conducted by their close friend and ex-mayor of Rome, Walter Veltroni.
