Who wasn't surprised when news broke that George and Amal Clooney are reportedly expecting twins? Though unconfirmed by the couple themselves, it was Julie Chen who reported the news on Thursday’s episode of The Talk. Chen claimed that Amal is due in June, and is carrying twins. Bustle has reached out to a rep for George for comment, but has not yet received a response. If the news is true, it seems fitting that the couple wouldn't make the first announcement themselves, as neither of them tend to discuss their relationship in public very often.
George and Amal are practically Hollywood royalty, so it’s no surprise that people everywhere are interested in the couple’s exciting news. I mean, it’s George friggin’ Clooney — who, for the longest time was widely thought to be Hollywood’s forever bachelor. We were all curious when he introduced the world to his high-profile human rights lawyer girlfriend Amal, and were glued to our screens following their event-of-the-season wedding in Venice. Even as recently as 2015, Cloney said that having kids wasn’t high on his list of priorities at the time, but if the report is indeed true, then clearly things have changed!
The news comes just a week after Beyoncé and Jay Z announced that they were also expecting twins, and the coincidental timing has resulted in a number of hilarious memes and tweets about George and Amal Clooney.
