Ella and Alexander were born to the celebrity couple Tuesday morning – one of the most hotly anticipated births since the Jolie-Pitt twins. George Clooney was “sedated,” the couple joked, while mom and babies were fine.George and Amal Clooney are now parents, having welcomed their twins, a boy and a girl, on Tuesday.
“Ella, Alexander and Amal are all healthy, happy and doing fine,” said their publicist Stan Rosenfield, who jokingly added that “George is sedated and should recover in a few days.”
The couple join a host of celebrity families with twins, including Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon, Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony – and, very soon, Beyoncé and Jay Z.
George Clooney, the 56-year-old Oscar-winning actor, and Amal Alamuddin, a 39-year-old human rights lawyer, married in Italy in 2014 after meeting through a mutual friend. Ella and Alexander are their first children.
Social media users were quick to chime in on the couple’s choice of traditional names, as opposed to the unusual names often chosen by celebrities.
Photos of the Clooney twins have not yet been released.
The next highly anticipated celebrity birth will be singer Beyoncé and rapper Jay Z’s twins. Though they have not made their due date public, the birth is expected to take place imminently.
