French mag publishes ‘first photos’ of George & Amal’s Clooney’s twins

65th Annual Directors Guild Of America Awards (DAG)

My queendom for a juicy gossip story this summer. I badly need some huge divorce or cheating scandal. I need something non-violent but shady as hell to get me through the last half of the summer (Taylor Swift, please do SOMETHING). Because the current gossip is like watching paint dry, right? So, this is what passes from gossip at the tail end of July: George Clooney and Amal’s babies in Como, Italy. The Clooney family has been vacationing at George’s Lake Como villa for weeks now, which is his usual summer vacation. He’s very old-school European, our George. He sets aside two months or more every year to go to Como, and this is his first summer there as a father. His twins are almost two months old, and Amal’s family is apparently on hand to help out. The French magazine Voici got some exclusive shots of George and Amal holding Alexander/Sasha and Ella (lord I hope they call that kid Sasha Clooney). George seems to be all about supporting the baby’s neck!

Here’s a milquetoast People Mag exclusive to go along with the new photo:

George and Amal Clooney’s summer vacation in Italy has all the familiar hallmarks of their go-to July getaways: sun-kissed downtime at their villa on Lake Como and laughter-filled pasta dinners with friends.

This time, however, there are two newcomers on the la dolce vita scene: Ella and Alexander, the couple’s 7-week-old twins. And the new parents are relishing every moment.

“George and Amal are very hands-on,” a source tells PEOPLE in this week’s issue. “The babies keep them very busy, but they both seem to love being parents.”

“The weather has been fantastic — sunny and warm every day,” the source adds. “George and Amal are enjoying the summer with their babies. Both seem very happy.”

[From People]

They’re very happy. They’re happy. It’s fantastic. So happy. Much hands on. I’m not shading the Clooneys, I’m just desperate for scandal. Tell me they’ve hired twenty nannies already because they’re going crazy. Tell me that Amal screams bloody murder at George constantly. Tell me that he’s drowning himself in tequila. SOMETHING.

    Amal’s frumpy nightie is enough for me. George is aging her!

  2. HH says:

    I think the missteps and scandals with Trump and co. is beating out any celebrity scandal these days.

    • AnnaKist says:

      HH: I really need to see the optometrist. I thought you’d written, “I think the mistress and sandals…”, and wondered where you were going…

  3. Wilma says:

    Call me sappy, but I hope they’re happy with their kids.

    • Geekychick says:

      call me naive, but I really think they are. and I love the fact that you can see she had babies recently with this dress. and I don’t mean that in any kind of negative conotation, I just remember how I looked and felt after I’ve had mine.

  4. Froggy says:

    Just read George is going to sue the mag.

    • Brittney B. says:

      Of course he is! They were probably planning an exclusive, and these were probably taken illegally. Not to mention the picture that will forever technically be the “first” is… not exactly flattering to him. I’d be livid.

      • noway says:

        I agree these aren’t the most flattering pictures of George either. Yet they are now the first of the twins. Oh well, I think some celebs release pictures to stop the paps from being so crazy. Still don’t feel bad for him. He’s in Italy on vacation, has two babies, and tons of money from his tequila sale. I think they will figure out their security issues and be okay.

    • spidey says:

      @froggy – given that the photographer allegedly climbed over their fence and up their tree and also took photos of inside the house I don’t blame him .

  5. PIa says:

    So odd, he swears off marriage and kids….and then this!

    I think Amal might’ve told him upfront about her desire to start a family, fertility treatment possibilities, taking time off work to raise kids.

    There must’ve have been some early discussions.

    Or George might’ve gotten sick of the model girlfriend lifestyle and wanted a family all of a sudden too…

    • Zeddy says:

      Hey, if it happens to women where they meet the right guy and suddenly all old standards fly out the window, it can happen here too!

    • Heidi says:

      I think George always wanted a family.

      But if he would have admitted publicly that he simply had not found his Miss Perfect yet, everybody would have been like: “What??? YOU can have every woman you want!”

      I think he just wanted to spare himself that.

      • Iulia says:

        I agree. I think his mind is finally letting him get away with it because she is worth it. By his mind, I mean his father/mother influence. I was shocked at the way his father talked about his past relationships compared with this one. He was condescending and clearly devalued his son ‘ s exes. But now the big boy can marry because she is a match for his son. Sad how our choices can be made by our parents ‘s programs in our mind. Not that he does n love Amal, he might, but I get the feeling he thinks he has made a deal with her.

      • Jeesie says:

        Whenever he talked properly about marriage and children it was always clear that the issue was that he didn’t think he could balance work with a family life, not that he didn’t want it at all. He was always a guy that put his career first, and was self-aware enough to realise that doesn’t make for a great husband or father. With the success of his tequila company I think he saw that he’d always have the funds to make films, so he could afford to take a bit of a step back and open up his life to something beyond acting.

        His friends said when he first hurt his back and was having surgeries and all sorts he kept asking them all how they juggled their jobs and families. So it didn’t surprise me that he did the marriage and babies thing when he found someone who interested him.

    • kibbles says:

      I think there might have been early discussions too, as there should have been if there was any question that either of them wanted different things if they got serious. I really don’t know why more people don’t have these discussions upfront. If a woman wants children and a guy is absolutely sure he doesn’t, or vice versa, the relationship is almost doomed from the start unless one person is willing to compromise. And that is a huge compromise, either throwing away one’s dreams of having a family, or feeling forced to have children when you don’t want any, for another person. That is why I look past guys on dating apps who put down “do not want children”. Maybe Amal was lucky enough to change George’s mind for whatever reason if he really is in love with her and didn’t want to lose her, but that often is not the case and a person typically won’t budge on that issue. I also agree that maybe he really did want a family and the right woman had not come along, and he still wanted to play the field. I really think it doesn’t matter who the woman is if the man isn’t really to settle down. If Amal had met him fifteen years ago, they would not have ended up married with children so quickly. When a man is ready to settle down, you can basically be the next woman he meets and he’ll choose you to get married. That’s why there is no point in dealing with immature men because they won’t be ready for years or decades to make a commitment.

      • Geekychick says:

        hm…I was always a bit…unsettled by this american concept of settling down in movies and series I watched, and then when visiting USA, it just always seemed so unnatural to me: if you’ve found the one, why should you be ready to settle down or, how does the relationship work if you start meeting people with words: “I’m ready to settle down” like on some twisted hunt for marriage. but after your post, I kinda can see it- and in a way I agree with you, but in a way I also don’t.
        i know people who were yes, immature and settled down when they’ve hit the right time and right person, I’ve known people who just met the right person and that was that, I know people who just wanted married life and settled for the first one they found and are still miserable in their marriage, ten years after. i think it just depends on a lot of factors.

      • Liberty says:

        Um what – American concept? In every country I have lived and worked in, I have had coworkers and friends of both genders, 20 to 40, talk and talk about wanting to settle down, or settle things, or be serious about life, or it is time to find someone and marry, or were married by 22, or worried by 24. I was surprised.

        Some still getting their PhDs at 28 or 30 had long since moved in with long term partners. I had long serious discussions with male and female students eager to devote themselves to their top flight careers “but I will be married at 30 to 33, it must not be later.”

        Do I know scores of atypical Western Europeans and Brits? My Czech and Italian friends were the least frantic.

      • Geekychick says:

        In my country, and actually neighbouring ones the concept is not the same. You may want to settle down, you may think you will be married by the time you’re ** years old(although that is something you’ll more often hear by very young people fantasizing about their future life), but you don’t say that when flirting with someone, starting a relationship or similar. You either get to that point-proposal, cohabitation, etc. When things get serious or few years down the road you discuss how you want that/why didn’t it come to that yet or something similar- but you don’t mention it upfront!! It’s kind of an embarrassing cliche reserved for granmas and old-fashioned parents :”oh, she should settle down!”
        The pressure of society is here, of course, but not the immediate, upfront, open pressure on the relationship from the start. But I’m from S-SE EU, so….
        Although I do think that just because something is done in Western Europe and America, it doesn’t mean it’s a societal norm in whole of the modern world. 😉

  6. Jayna says:

    No Sasha. That doesn’t really suit a George Clooney kid for some reason in my mind. He’s a George. His dad is Nick. Alexander sounds great. Sasha does suit Naomi Watt’s blonde-haired little boy, who is named Alexander, named after Liev’s Ukrainian-born grandfather, but goes by Sasha. But I do love the name Alexander/Alex for George’s little boy.

    I do feel sorry for them, that their private residence was completely invaded like that by someone going onto their property and into a tree to get photos.

    It looks like the baby George is carrying, probably Alexander, has lost the hair on top of his head. I had a friend whose baby had lots of hair, but then lost it on the top, and only had it on the sides and back. It came back.

    With so many celebrity divorces after seven, ten years, I hope they beat the odds and have a thriving and loving marriage and get to enjoy their children together as a couple raising them.

  7. Nicole says:

    Yea the scandal is they didn’t have a right to publish these photos and are getting sued. so good luck

  8. Pumpkin (formally soup, pie) says:

    How healthy is it for 7-week olds to travel ?

    • Des says:

      Please stop.

    • Jeesie says:

      Perfectly healthy. Especially since they travelled on a private plane to a private home. 7 week olds who get taken on a trip to the supermarket would be exposed to more germs.

    • Pumpkin (formally soup, pie) says:

      Hello, it was an honest question.
      Flights do no compare to supermarket trips, you should know that.
      I am not a troll.

      • Geekychick says:

        yeah, supermarket trips are worse. all those judgy moms around you, not to mention the germs from all thise people!
        no, really, this is on par with my granma, who thinks monthly ultrasounds are bad for the baby while pregnant. ;D she’s 89, though.

  9. QueenB says:

    They wrote something very positive because they know they will be sued.

  10. Maum says:

    Voici don’t care. They routinely get sued by French celebs.
    They’ve turned it into a thing- practically every week their cover is taken with a ruling on which celeb sued them and how much they had to pay them.
    They display it rather proudly.

  11. I am bored says:

    Makes me happy to see it because I’ve already read jealousy from the Brad Pitt fans. George gets to be around his kids cause he’s not a child abuser. Oops!

    • noway says:

      Not sure why people find glee when a celebrity falls from grace, especially when we don’t know the facts when it could be something as serious as child abuse. Even Angelina just called it an event, really anything else is speculation. I admit I don’t like the way women celebs are treated in the gossip rags compared to men, but I’m not sure you cure it by beating up on the men. Also FYI, Brad got to be around his kids when they were babies too, by the time these babies get to be Maddox age George will be 71. Who knows what he’ll be doing by then. Good luck with that George.

      • I am bored says:

        I only ever read the first sentence . So I’ll respond to that. We get glee (or at least I do) because the fans. Brad Pitt fans still refuse to take the L (loss) and they blame Angelina for everything under the Sun. They are currently abusing her for the way a casting director decided to cast her movie. So give me this. I’m enjoying their anger.

        They absolutely hate George and Amal. They say George is sexually attracted to Brad and Amal is just plane ugly in their minds. According to Brad fans we all should just wait in line for his sorry ass.

      • mayamae says:

        Sorry, but the Angie fans also went after Amal. It was very strange, but easily identified by the names of the posters.

      • I am bored says:

        I don’t know what sites you’re visiting, but nope these are the Brad Pitt fans that think George is gay and just using Amal because he can’t have Brad. Ange fans like myself couldnt care less . I think amal is beautiful and George is lucky to have her.

  12. brooksie says:

    These photos are such an invasion of privacy.

  13. Emmet says:

    GC is suing Voici for invasion of privacy.

    On a side note, where is the coverage for the man who is suing GC, Rande, and Casamigos for harming him with tequila and liquid nitrogen?

  14. TheChef says:

    Is Amal not wearing heels? *clutching pearls*

    Oh wait, she didn’t know she was being photographed. The world makes sense again.

    • Sarah says:

      LOL! Seriously, this is the worst decision he made for himself. Marriage to Amal and now fatherhood is aging him, and not in a good way. Honestly, he was always better suited for polyamory than he was marriage.
