Oscar winning actor-filmmaker George Clooney and his wife Amal Clooney are expecting twins. The news was confirmed by George’s close friend Matt Damon.

“I’m like, ‘Are you out of your mind? Don’t tell anybody else, don’t tell anybody else, I mean, don’t you know the 12-week rule?’ Of course, he doesn’t,” Damon said, laughing. “Then four weeks later, ‘I’m like, ‘We’re good right, we’re good,’ so I’m thrilled for him.”

According to reports, the babies are due in the month of June.

People magazine reported that Amal “has let everyone in both families know quietly and they’re all very happy.”

While strolling through Barcelona airport, Amal, who is pregnant with twins, flashed a big smile.

George Clooney and Amal got married in Venice, Italy in 2014.
