Poor George Clooney!
In a candid new interview, the 55-year-old actor’s close friend Don Cheadle joked George will be a “terrible parent” when he and his pregnant wife, Amal Clooney, welcome twins this summer.
“I heard [about their pregnancy] some time ago. I’m very happy for him. I’m going to have to raise [the kids],” Don quipped at the Universal Music Group’s 2017 Grammys afterparty in LA on Sunday, Feb. 12, according to People.

“He’s going to be a terrible parent, and we’re going to have to handle that for him. We’re going to take the kids,” the 52-year-old star — who has daughters Ayana Tai Cheadle, 22, and Imani Cheadle, 19, with longtime partner Bridgid Coulter — continued.
“As soon as the kids come out, send them to us or they’re going to be ruined,” Don added. The star and George have been friends for years and have starred in Ocean’s Eleven, Ocean’s Twelve, and Ocean’s Thirteen together.
In Touch Weekly previously revealed Amal’s pregnancy back on Jan. 18. “Amal is pregnant with twins: a boy and a girl,” an insider close to the lawyer told the magazine. “When George and Amal found out it was twins they were surprised, but also a little scared because they both had said that one was enough.”

“But the news that it was a boy and a girl made them both really happy. They feel like they’ve hit the family jackpot,” the source continued.
“[George has] gone from never wanting to be a father to being totally excited about Amal’s pregnancy and the thought of raising two children who will call him Dad,” the insider said. “He’s been doting on Amal’s every need and talking to her belly. He’s also having a blast coming up with baby names.”
