George Clooney and his wife Amal sent shock waves across the web yesterday after they made their announcement that they were expecting twins.
The 39-year old Amal Clooney and George Clooney, 55 made it official on Feb. 9, that they were soon to have twins and reports state that the two may be expecting a boy and a girl. Considering this is good news for the couple, these will be their first children since their marriage back in 2016.
“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,” a source revealed to InTouch magazine back in January.
“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.”

This month has been a jackpot for twin babies as we saw celebrities like Jay Z and Beyonce make their announcement about their yet to be born twins.
This is really great news for the Clooney family since the two reportedly struggled with fertility issues, and had to turn to IVF treatments in order to make their family dreams a reality.
Unlike the process of artificial insemination in which sperm is placed in the uterus and conception happens, IVF involves combining eggs and sperm outside the body in a laboratory. Once an embryo or embryos form, they are then placed in the uterus.
