People: George & Amal Clooney ‘are completely, fully in love,’ okay?

42nd Cesar Film Awards 2017 - Ceremony

George and Amal Clooney are doing fine. I didn’t know that was up for debate, but People Magazine just wants to remind you: they’re fine. Amal is pregnant with twins and she’s due… in a few months, I think? I’ve heard that she’s due in May and that is possibly true, but if so, she seems to be carrying very small, especially for twins and especially for her first pregnancy. Personally, I think George was fine with his child-free life before Amal and I wonder if he’s really prepared for how much his life is going to change once the babies come. But still… People Mag wants you to know that he’s fine. They’re fine. They’s “completely, fully in love.”

George and Amal Clooney seem to be savoring their last few months of peace and quiet before the Clooney household gets much livelier this summer, when they’ll be welcoming twins. The couple looked happy and relaxed as they strolled hand in hand near their manor in the English countryside on March 31.

“Everything’s going well with Amal’s pregnancy,” a source tells PEOPLE.

In February, the couple enjoyed a trip to Paris for the César Awards, where George was honored. While in the City of Love, they had an intimate candlelit dinner at the historic restaurant Lapérouse. Restaurant owner Grégory Lentz, who has known George, 55, since 2011, tells PEOPLE, “Amal is amazing. She is just lovely. He’s happier than I’ve ever seen him.” Lentz adds, “They’re completely, fully in love.”

While in Paris, they also made time to do a little shopping for the twins at Baudou, a boutique specializing in handmade layette and stylish nursery furnishings.

During their 20-minute stop at the shop, a staffer told PEOPLE, Amal, 39, “was looking exclusively at cribs and nursery furniture” and George was “very nice, really simple, very easy. He was in jeans and a jacket, like any other expectant father we see on the weekend.”

Is it just me or is this very “NOTHING TO SEE HERE, FOLKS”? I’m not saying I believe George and Amal are having issues. I’m not saying anything like that. In fact, I think they’ll be together for a while. But I just think George is having a hard time adjusting to his new Family Man role and much like Ben Affleck (only in Affleck’s case, it’s much more obvious), George has itches he needs to scratch, you know? It’s almost like a case of “be careful what you wish for.”

Oh, and Matt Damon gave an exclusive interview to E! News about how George is no longer the “prankster” on set – go here to read the piece. I mean… I know we were supposed to think it was so cute and funny, but George is 55 years old. I would hope that he is tired of on-set pranks at this point?

    I wonder if George is getting the itch to move on. Usually the contracts are up by now.

    • QueenB says:

      He knows what he is getting into. George plays the game now for decades and he never had a big scandal despite sleeping with lots of aspiring starlets and I think he even said he took drugs. Usually one or both of these things leads to negative press sooner or later. So he definitely knows what he is doing.

  2. Tulip Garden says:

    It would be surprising if they weren’t loved up and happy! Non-story but good luck and best wishes to them.

  3. adastraperaspera says:

    I was cynical about his marriage, thinking that he was positioning himself to make a run for political office of some kind. Guess I was wrong on that. I do think in pics that his face is not as relaxed as it once seemed–maybe from the chronic pain he says he suffers from.

    • NotSoSocialButterfy says:

      He looks pained so often and it has aged him. My husband is 55 and looks far younger. Of course, he has me for a spouse, so… ( i kid, i kid).

  4. jinni says:

    Sounds like someone isn’t happy that this pregnancy is not getting as much play as the Branges, TomKat or Beyonce’s because this update looks like a cry for attention.

    Also why is Matt always trotted out to give these little snippets? He name drops Clooney, defends Affleck and practically jumps out of his seat to start the standing ovation for Pitt as his surprise presenter gig this past . I know to some this looks like the work of a good friend but to me he comes off as the LeFou to their Gastons. He’s always making sure people know he is friends with them and always namedropping them. He just comes off as a lackey.

    • Anon33 says:

      Ive been getting these same feelings about Matt. Glad I’m not the only one.

    • Dee Kay says:

      Omg thank you for identifying this squick-y side of Damon. I remember an interview from a year or so ago (GQ? Vanity Fair?) in which Damon basically name-dropped every male A-lister in Hollywood. I thought, Damon is himself an A-lister, but is talking like an agent or a member of an entourage.

    • Jane says:

      Matt was promoting a movie which was directed by George. Of course he is going to be asked questions about George.

      • nemera34 says:

        He talks about other celebs every time he is interviewed. It used to be Brad and Angie.. now George/ Amal are his go to couple. He does this to deflect from himself. I don’t think he considers himself interesting. So he drops others’ names. He has put his foot in his mouth many times. I remember him saying stuff about Angie/Brad living a life like a prison because of their celebrity.. then people started attacking them about it. They never said anything like this.. but again it was Matt and his mouth. He talks regardless of who is in his movie or directing it.

  5. Gracey says:

    Those are some serious high heels for a pregnant lady – guess she hasn’t had a tumble yet. (Not being judge-y, just worried!)

  6. Lisaruns says:

    I don’t believe for a second that George ever wanted kids or that he will be able to wrap his head around being a responsible dad. It’s sad that the fact that he hadn’t “settled down” or become a father was the source of a lot of talk before Amal. (Much like Jen Aniston who I dont think ever wanted to be a mom, but that’s another convo). He seemed pretty happy in his long term bachelorhood with rotating girlfriends and easy living. Perhaps he changed his wants, but I can’t see it.

  7. robyn says:

    I think they really truly are in love and excited about the family they are about to begin!! The responsibility of having kids is also a bit frightening and somewhat life-changing so they are probably a little worried and confused too. They seem like a romantic couple blessed with intelligence, compassion and beauty.

    • Jack says:

      I have a bridge in Arizona I can sell you. This is TomKat 2.0.

    • SmokeyEye says:

      Jack, that’s likely Baria Alamuddin or co. They seem to post on JJ, DM, and a few other sites. You can tell by the sycophantic tone.

  8. Evie says:

    Why should he be worried about having kids? He’s a very wealthy man, and I’m sure they’re going to have a team of people to help with childcare (no judgement! If you can afford it, why not?), so it’s not like he is going to have to do much. It’s not as though he’s just a regular guy who will be expected to change diapers, do the early morning school runs, or remember all the endless appointments/events/activities kids have planned. I honestly didn’t think they’d last, but I think they make a great pair!

  9. AV says:

    I still think their marriage is an arrangement.

  10. Sage says:

    I can’t wait to see what he looks like in a couple years.

  11. suze says:

    The level of interest in these two and in this pregnancy is very low. I am sure it rankles him.

    • Emmet says:

      @suze – did you nail this!!!

      Why else was there a pap shot at the house in the UK? They haven’t been photographed together since the Cesars in Paris.

    • SmokeyEye says:

      She’s widely disliked on gossip threads and I’m sure he knows that and is bothered by it too. These leaks just show how much he wants to stay relevant.

    • nemera34 says:

      I don’t care what anyone says. Amal loves the press attention. I’m sure she would love for the world to be obsessed about this pregnancy. I don’t even see the media going nuts over Bey/Jay. Beyonce is showing off her pregnancy in every picture. But the frenzy is not there. I don’t think we will ever see that again. Not like Angie and Brad; with their pregnancies. That time has past. I don’t mean that people aren’t interesting in Bey/Jay or George/Amal.. but that over the top coverage and interest in not the same. I think George and Amal are about 3 years to 5 years too late on that one. If Bey/Jay can’t create that NUTTY CRAZINESS.. George/Amal don’t have a chance.

  12. SmokeyEye says:

    “In fact, I think they’ll be together for a while. ” Best subtle shade sentence of the day!

    I speculate George is bi and prefers male companionship emotionally. Getting married to Amal was mostly about the publicity for him. After three decades in the business, he has trouble separating sense of self from how he’s perceived.

  13. nemera34 says:

    Is Matt Damon getting paid to talk about George/Amal. Because in every interview he seems to do it. And sorry Matt. I don’t see that there is that big of an interest. I find it funny that we keep getting stories about people not one is asking about.

  14. Me says:

    Any other woman Clooney has dated was not as accomplished as Amal, they were all models or actresses but Not Attorney’s they were anything but Attorney’s
