How George Clooney Channeled His ER Character During the Twins’ Delivery
George and Amal Clooney have been laying low since welcoming their twins into the world earlier this month, but their parents are more than happy to chat about the little bundles of joy. Last week, Amal’s mom gushed that the couple are “so happy” and “so contented” with their new twins (and we have no doubt that she’s right), while George’s dad shared one incredibly adorable detail about little Ella and Alexander. Now the proud grandparents have revealed two more tidbits that are almost too awesome to handle.
Amal’s mother, Baria Alamuddin, told People that George looked like his ER character, Dr. Ross, during the delivery. “It was special to see George wearing the blue hospital gown similar to the one he wore in ER,” she shared. (We would have LOVED to have seen that!)
Though we’re sure Clooney totally let the real doctors take over when Amal was giving birth, we can easily imagine him rocking scrubs just like in the old days, and perhaps even throwing in a few medical terms like he once did so convincingly.
However, now that the doctors have done their work, and the duties have been passed over to the new parents, George’s dad, Nick Clooney, admits that his son and Amal definitely have their hands full. “I’ll tell you this: [The twins are] both very vocal,” he shared with Entertainment Tonight. “Oh my, yes.” Oh my, indeed.
Nick added that he’s seen a change in his son since Amal learned she was pregnant. “Since the word came out that he was going to be a father, no question about it, he changed,” Nick said. “This has nothing to do with age, but this is a different kind of maturity. When you figure out that you’re going to take that standard responsibility that everybody else has done for years, and now you’re on the merry-go-round. You’re in the middle.”
And while Grandpa Clooney has previously revealed that he had been introduced to the little ones via Skype, he said he’s waiting to meet them IRL. “[George and Amal] deserve as much quiet time and private time as possible.” Though that’s totally sweet and incredibly considerate, it sounds like the new parents aren’t getting much quiet time at all. That is, if the “very vocal” twins have anything to say about it (and it certainly sounds like they do!).
Did/do you have a “very vocal” baby? Let us know @BritandCo!
