George and Amal Clooney welcome birth of twins

Amal welcomed a daughter and a son today, with the tots being named Ella and Alexander.

"They're counting down [the days] and pretty much at the edge of their seats".

Human rights attorney Amal Clooney has somehow beaten Beyoncé to the punch and given birth to twin babies with her husband George Clooney.

George and Amaal started dating in 2013, and tied the knot in a lovely ceremony in Venice, Italy, in September 2014.

It read: "This morning Amal and George welcomed Ella and Alexander Clooney into their lives". She told Ellen DeGeneres last month exactly what George and Amal could expect in their early days as they adjusted to a new life as parents.

Williams, the 10th seed, fought back from 5-1 down to take the opening set against Bacsinzky. Meanwhile, Kei Nishikori survived a tough challenge from South Korea's Hyeon Chung .

Meanwhile, hours before the news of the twins' arrival hit headlines, it emerged that the Clooneys had received a very special visit from former U.S. President Barack Obama at their home in the English countryside on 27 May (17), during the politician's visit to the United Kingdom. It was confirmed in February this year that the Oscar-winning actor-director and the global human-rights lawyer were expecting their first kids.

While George Clooney has come a long way since marrying Amal, but fans don't expect the family to be too open after the birth of their twins.

George Clooney is not only thrilled to have become a father at age 56, he's keeping his trademark humor intact. "I was very happy that we were going to get married and then [a pregnancy] seemed like the next step".

As soon as the good news was out, there was complete buzz everywhere and several Hollywood celebrities took to their Twitter account and congratulated the new parents. "My wife says I can't name them Casa and Amigos", he teased in March. And I was like, "How far along is she?' And he goes, 'Eight weeks".
