What are George Clooney’s twin children’s names?

The twins, a boy, and a girl were named Ella and Alexander.

A spokesperson for the couple announced the birth at the time and said: “This morning Amal and George welcomed Ella and Alexander Clooney into their lives.

“Ella, Alexander and Amal are all healthy, happy and doing fine.”

He then jokingly added: “George is sedated and should recover in a few days.”

George had explained at the time that the parents hated Hollywood names and wanted to give their children “normal” ones.

“We figured these kids are going to be looked at a lot and watched and [have their] every move sort of judged, and we wanted them to at least have a break with the names,” he said.

“So we looked for some sort of normal names.

“We didn’t have any great inspiration. It wasn’t Alexander the Great and Ella Fitzgerald.”

And speaking about the twins the actor said: “My daughter looks exactly like Amal. She has big beautiful eyes… It’s incredible.

“They start out with a personality right off the bat. [Alexander] is a thug already…

“He’s a moose! Literally, he just sits and he eats.”

Although the parents try to keep their children out of the spotlight, they made a rare appearance with them in August 2021 in Lake Como, Italy.

Who is George Clooney’s wife?

George Clooney has been married to Amal Alamuddin for over seven years.

The pair got married in Venice’s City Hall in September 2014.

The 43-year-old is a human rights lawyer of Lebanese descent.

She was born in Beirut and her family relocated to Buckinghamshire, England, where she was raised and went to school.

As a lawyer, Amal has worked on several high-profile cases including representing Wikileaks founder Julian Assange in his extradition hearings.

She has also worked closely with the UN in backing a UK-led campaign to battle terrorist organisation ISIS.

In September 2015, Amal revealed that she had been noticed by the group and said she was the target of threats as a result.

She has also launched the Amal Clooney scholarship in partnership with 100 lives, which sends one Lebanese student to college each year to participate in a two-year international baccalaureate.

The couple has also launched together The Clooney Foundation for Justice.
