Now that George Clooney is a new dad, he has some requests when it comes to his twins, Ella and Alexander. Even though the nuggets are only three months old and likely not even talking, the actor jokes he doesn’t want his son and daughter to develop a British accent!
In a new interview with Paris Match, George opened up about life with his wife, Amal Clooney, and their little ones. Watch the video below to see what the star revealed about his kids being raised in England!
George and Amal welcomed Ella and Alexander in June 2017, and ever since, fans have been surprised by the “typical” names they have their little ones (let’s be real, celebrities can get really creative when it comes to baby monikers!). And now, the ER star is setting the record straight.
“[We] didn’t want to give them one of those ridiculous Hollywood names that don’t mean anything,” George told the publication. “They’ll already have enough difficulty bearing the weight of their celebrity.” He added to Entertainment Tonight, “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. 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.”
George previously shared the super adorable reaction he had when he found out he’d become a dad to twins at age 56. “[The doctor said], ‘Well, there’s one.’ And I said, ‘Great.’ And then he goes, ‘And there’s the second one.’ And I was like, ‘What?’ We just sat there, staring at that piece of paper they give you, and I kept thinking there was a mistake,” George recalled. So cute!
