GEORGE and Amal Clooney didn’t want their children to have “ridiculous Hollywood names”.
The ‘Money Monster’ star and the human rights lawyer welcomed twins Ella and Alexander into the world in June and were adamant not to give them unusual monikers because they will “already have enough difficulty bearing the weight of their celebrity”.
He told Paris Match magazine: “We didn’t want to give them one of those ridiculous Hollywood names that don’t mean anything. They’ll already have enough difficulty bearing the weight of their celebrity.”
Meanwhile, George previously admitted he “didn’t think” he would be a dad with twins at 56.
He said: “Suddenly, you’re responsible for other people, which is terrifying. Amal’s like an Olympic athlete. She’s doing so beautifully. Right now my job is changing diapers and walking them around a little bit. I really didn’t think at 56 that I would be the parent of twins. Don’t make plans. You always have to just enjoy the ride.”
And the Hollywood star has confessed fatherhood has made him “much older”.
He explained: “Its true. He’s got me. I’m a mess. But (Amal) is like an Olympic athlete. You’ve got two kids, you’re breastfeeding like crazy. I’m very good, by the way, at diaper changing. This is an all-new adventure for me, but I’ve been through it with all my friends, so it’s not really that much of a surprise. (Fatherhood) has made me much older. It doesn’t fundamentally change you, but I’m excited to see who these two people are going to be in life. I’m very proud to be (a dad). I feel honoured to be a part of it.” – BANG!
