Twins have arrived for actor George Clooney and his wife Amal, a human rights attorney. These are the first children for both parents. Clooney is 56 years old and Amal is 39 years old.

The couple released this statement to CNN saying,

This morning Amal and George welcomed Ella and Alexander Clooney into their lives. Ella, Alexander and Amal are all healthy, happy and doing fine. George is sedated and should recover in a few days.

You might remember that the news of their impending parenthood was rife with speculation about whether they relied upon IVF to become pregnant. To this date, the couple has not addressed that speculation.

We at Creating a Family wish the new parents all joy and happiness on the birth of their twins. We are quite sure they are beautiful and if other reports are any indication, they will be cherished.
