George Clooney’s children, Alexander and Ella

For years, George Clooney was one of Hollywood’s most eligible bachelors. But that all changed when the Oscar winner met and fell madly in love with his now-wife, high-profile human rights lawyer Amal Clooney (née Alamuddin). He is now not only a married man but also a father of two children.

George and Amal married in Venice, Italy in 2014 and the latter gave birth to their fraternal twins, Alexander and Ella, in June 2017. Although George is known for starring in dozens of Hollywood productions including Ocean’s Eleven, Up in the Air, Gravity and now Ticket to Paradise opposite Julia Roberts, his roles as a husband and father lie most important to him. “In marriage, and now with the kids, you give up the selfishness of just taking care of yourself,” George told People in 2020. “It’s a wonderful thing. Amal and I talk about it every day… We feel so lucky.”

Although George and Amal have never appeared in public with their children, the former is not shy about speaking about them in the press. Previously, in a 2017 interview with The Hollywood Reporter, George reflected on fatherhood and spoke candidly about missing his bachelor lifestyle. “I certainly don’t,” he said. “It seems like forever ago. Now my house is filled with the warm sounds of babies crying. You should see when my friends show up and see me changing a diaper, the laughter that comes from them. I say, ‘I know, I know.’ I’ve given them so much shit for so many years, I deserve all of it.”

Alexander Clooney

George and Amal’s son, Alexander, was born on June 6, 2017. In GQ’s 2020 profile of his father, the outlet described Alexander as having “a shock of brown hair and messy teeth,” adding that he “looks like the son of George and Amal Clooney.” He also speaks fluent Italian, which George hilariously described as “really stupid thing” since neither he nor Amal speaks the language. According to George’s episode of the WTF with Marc Maron podcast, he and his son also have an adorable morning routine. “Alexander knocks on my bedroom door at 8 a.m. every morning. I say: ‘Who is it?’ And he says, ‘It’s Alexander Clooney,'” the actor shared. “I open the door, he jumps in and I laugh out loud.”

Ella Clooney

Ella, Alexander’s twin sister, was also born on June 6, 2017. Like her brother, Ella speaks Italian (the twins also speak two other languages, according to George’s September interview with Entertainment Tonight). Although the twins have similar hobbies, George previously told People that he and Amal’s daughter are a lot shyer than her brother. “Ella is very shy around adults,” he said. “We have a St. Bernard puppy, Rosie, and she’s about 125 pounds of sheer energy. She was stung by a bee, and now when we’re walking the dog and hikers come by, Ella hides her face while Alexander walks right up to her and says, ‘Rosie was stung by a bee.’ He explains it to every single person.”
