“Sometimes,” said Pooh, “the smallest things take up the most room in your heart.” This lovely quote said by none other than the world’s favorite childhood friend, Winnie the Pooh, perfectly describes George Clooney’s excitement for his upcoming twins. Both George and Amal are anxious to become parents. For them, their two treasures cannot come soon enough.
This is the first time Clooney has really opened up about his true feelings toward being a father. “We are really happy and really excited. It’s going to be an adventure,” the 55-year-old actor exclaimed. The couple will have the adventure of their lives through the next eighteen years, that’s for sure. Both George and Amal have shared their immense happiness with family and friends over the past few days. Apparently, for George things didn’t go as smoothly when he informed his closest pals of the exciting news. Of course, the actor’s friends were very supportive but didn’t let Clooney off the hood without giving him a hard time. Along with spirited pats on the back and whistles of gratitude, Clooney witnessed an array of men crying like babies and laughing hysterically in celebratory behavior.
Not all responses to the baby news have been positive for the Clooneys. Many people expressed concern for George’s age. Granted, George will be a 55-year-old father and Amal will be a 39-year-old mother. There’s a significant sixteen-year difference. But George understands this abnormality. The acting sensation revealed that he is inspired by French actor Jean-Paul Belmondo who, at 70 years old, had a child with his second wife, Nathalie Tardivel. Clooney looks up to Belmondo when dealing with this age discrepancy, and feels confident in his upcoming new family regardless of his age. Anyone can parent at any age. Who wouldn’t want George Clooney as a father?
With baby preparations looming overhead, the Clooney’s definitely have their hands full. The parents are expecting a baby boy and girl this spring. With the Clooney family bubbling with excitement, we can only look forward to what the world will bring us within these next few months. The Clooney’s have an infinite love, they just need two more little ones to share it with.
