Have George and Amal Clooney Picked Out Names for Their Babies?
Plus, find out how the couple is preparing for first-time parenthood.
Okay, George and Amal Clooney are officially the most adorable parents-to-be. The first-time mom and dad have been about as adorable as can be since news broke that Amal is pregnant with twins-she's been showing off some seriously chic pregnancy style while George keeps proving he's going to be a doting father. But as Amal's reported summer due date approaches, the couple is working hard to get ready for the arrival of their children. Namely, by bouncing around children's names.
While they certainly agree on the excitement, it seems that the twosome isn't seeing eye-to-eye on baby names. In fact, Amal has already vetoed two of George's proposed names! George, who co-owns the tequila brand Casamigos, told ET that Amal gave the names "Casa" and "Amigos" a hard "no." "My wife says I can't name them Casa and Amigos. That's the one thing I'm not allowed to do," he said.
Other than struggling to select the perfect baby names, George and Amal seem to be enjoying the beginning stages of parenthood. "She is doing really great," George told Extra of Amal. "She is amazing. I don't have anything to do. There is nothing I can do to help, but make tea and stuff." But once the two babies arrive, George knows he's ready. "I know swaddling," he recently said. "I know what I'm in for." He also joked about becoming a dad at 55, saying that diapers will be an important part of life, "for me not for the kids."
Thanks to George's mom, Nina Clooney, we now know that he and Amal will be welcoming both a son and daughter this summer. "It will be one of each!" the future grandmother told Vogue. "Yes, a boy and a girl. That's what I've been told. How marvelous! My husband and I are extremely excited." Others in the couple's inner circle are excited about the arrival, too. Julianne Moore, one of George's friends and an actress in "Suburbicon," a new movie he's directing, has only good things to say about the dad-to-be. "I think it is great," Julianne said. "I think he is going to be a natural. I'm not worried about him at all."
