George and Amal Clooney welcome birth of twins

Published: Updated:

First-time parents George and Amal Clooney welcomed their twin babies, Ella and Alexander, on Tuesday morning in London, the actor’s publicist said.

“This morning Amal and George welcomed Ella and Alexander Clooney into their lives,” Stan Rosenfield said on behalf of the couple. “Ella, Alexander and Amal are all healthy, happy and doing fine.”

“George is sedated and should recover in a few days,” he joked about the 56-year-old Hollywood heartthrob.

The 39-year-old Lebanese-British international human rights lawyer and Clooney tied the knot in Venice in 2014.

The couple have kept a low profile since announcing they were having twins in February, staying at their rural home outside London.

Amal’s clients include former Ukrainian prime minister Yulia Tymoshenko and Australian Wikileaks founder Julian Assange.

After her wedding, she threw her legal clout and celebrity behind a series of high-profile causes including Britain’s possible restitution of the Elgin Marbles to Greece.
