Just like mom and dad!
After George Clooney, 56, and his 39-year-old wife, Amal Clooney, welcomed their twins Ella and Alexander on Tuesday, June 6, the actor is the happiest he has ever been, according to his good friend Rande Gerber.
Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, the former model — who co-founded the tequila brand Casamigos with George, which was just reportedly sold for $1 billion — revealed that the A-list couple are embracing their new roles as parents.
"He’s so happy right now," Rande, 55, said. "Just in life in general and having those kids, you know, it’s an incredible feeling for him."
Rande and his wife, Cindy Crawford — who are parents to aspiring models Kaia, 15, and Presley, 17 — have been on hand to provide support, advice, and the odd tequila-based joke. Remember the custom Casamigos onesies that the couple sent as baby shower gifts (inadvertently revealing the gender of the twins in the process...)?
Naturally, the couple were also among the first to visit the twins, flying across the Atlantic to England earlier this month to meet the new arrivals.

"I did see the babies, Cindy and I went to London and went to the house and spent some time with them," Rande revealed, adding that "the kids are the perfect mix of George and Amal. I mean, they really are so cute!" With genes like theirs, we’re not surprised!
According to In Touch Weekly, George and Amal are done having kids after welcoming Ella and Alexander. "They’ve decided they aren’t having any more kids. They have their boy and girl. And George knows he’s not getting any younger," an insider recently told the entertainment news outlet.
"[George] never imagined his life would turn out this way. These babies have brought him a new kind of love, and without question, he’s truly happier than he’s ever been," the insider continued. How sweet!
