George And Amal Clooney Welcome Twins!

George Clooney has become a first-time father, as his wife Amal gives birth to twins, a boy named Alexander and a girl named Ella.

They were born in London on Tuesday morning.

“This morning Amal and George welcomed Ella and Alexander Clooney into their lives. Ella, Alexander and Amal are all healthy, happy and doing fine. George is sedated and should recover in a few days,” Clooney's rep told ‘PEOPLE’.

Amal Clooney's parents said they were delighted to welcome their grandchildren.

"They are in great health, all is perfect," Amal's father Ramzi Alamuddin, who lives in Beirut, told AFP news agency.

"I am very happy for them, they will be great parents."

Amal's mother Baria, who is in hospital with her daughter, said: "We are over the moon. It was a beautiful delivery. The babies are beautiful and are doing well."

George, 56, and Amal, 39, married at a star-studded ceremony in Venice in 2014, just five months after the actor proposed.
