George Clooney’s mother thinks he will be a “great” dad.

The 55-year-old actor and his wife Amal Clooney - whom he married in 2014 - are expecting their first children together after it was announced Amal is pregnant with twins, and now George’s mother Nina has said she is “extremely happy” with the news.

She said: “We are extremely happy for George and Amal, and I cannot imagine two people who would be better parents.

“I think he’ll be great, and I think she’ll be a great mom!”

And Nina - who is also mother to Adelia Clooney - says the ‘Money Monster’ actor and Amal, 39, personally came to visit her and George’s father Nick in order to deliver the happy news.


She told Us Weekly magazine: “We were with them and they told us together. We were all together, and it was lovely. It was just a personal moment.”

The news was first made public on Thursday (09.02.17) when the couple’s close friend Julie Chen made an announcement during her talk show ‘The Talk’.

She said: “Congratulations are in order for George and Amal Clooney! ‘The Talk’ has confirmed that the 55-year-old superstar and his highly accomplished 39-year-old attorney wife are expecting twins. Now, what we did find out that no one else is reporting, is that the twins are due this June!”

Meanwhile, fellow actor and close friend of George Matt Damon admitted he “almost started crying” when the ‘Up in the Air’ star told him the happy news.

The Oscar winner said: “I was working with him last fall and he pulled me aside on set and I mean, I almost started crying. I was so happy for him. And I was like, ‘How far along is she?’ And he goes, ‘Eight weeks.’”
