There’s a rumor going around that George & Amal Clooney are expecting again

The 46th AFI Life Achievement Awards

George and Amal Clooney decamped to Como, Italy early in the summer, when it became easier for Americans to travel to Europe. George has owned a beautiful mansion on Lake Como for the better part of two decades, and every year, he tries to spend at least two months (usually longer) in Como over the summer. George, Amal and their twins spent the pandemic lockdown in LA, in George’s old bachelor home which he never bothered to upgrade, so you know they were itching to go to Como as soon as possible.

Since they arrived in Italy, there have been photos of them here and there as they go out to dinner and socialize. No close-ups or anything, they’re not Bennifer (at least not anymore!). But this week, paparazzi got some shots of George and Amal where Amal seemed to have a very, very small “bump.” Just know, I look more pregnant than Amal in these photos, and the only thing I’m gestating is some Bojangles fried chicken.

There were various shots of Amal in this Giambattista Valli dress which does seem to have a little extra room built in for a possible early pregnancy. Or maybe it’s just a bad dress, you never know. Plus, Amal has always been a bit slouchy, so this could all just be an optical illusion. Still, OK! Magazine is trying to make “George and Amal are expecting” into a thing:

George and Amal Clooney were all smiles as they headed to dinner in Lake Como, Italy on July 20. The gorgeous couple locked arms, with George — dressed in a sharp gray suit — leading his wife — clad in a form-fitting white dress — to the luxe Grand Hotel Tremezzo where they dined with members of Amal’s family. The pair, notes a witness, “appeared to be bursting with joy.”

Now, OK! can share why they looked even happier than usual: An insider says the 60-year-old star and the human rights lawyer, 43 — who share 4-year-old twins Ella and Alexander — are expecting! “The buzz is they’re having twins again,” spills the insider. “Amal’s said to be past her first trimester, and she’s already starting to show, so soon enough, everyone will know.”

The source also says the spouses of seven years have already told close friends. The duo threw an intimate dinner party near their Italian villa on July 4 at the actor’s favorite restaurant, Il Gatto Nero. That’s when they made the big announcement.

“George was giddy with excitement and couldn’t wait to tell everyone,” the insider shares, adding that the news “was met with well-wishes all around. George was so proud, and Amal was glowing.”

They weren’t sure it could happen. “This is something both George and Amal really wanted, but at her age, there was no guarantee,” notes the insider, adding that they’re over the moon at the idea of expanding their family. “It’s so exciting. George has been open about wanting more kids, so getting two at once would be ideal!”

I was trying to find the quote but I gave up on it, but I do remember Amal was asked directly if she planned on having any more kids after the twins and she didn’t play any games, she just shut it down and said no, she and George both felt like they were blessed to have two healthy babies and they were done. But maybe being together throughout the pandemic changed their minds? I don’t know. I feel like OK! Mag and the Daily Mail are just making Amal’s bad dress into a dumb thing.

Update: The Clooneys denied this!! No pregnancy.

    I have a no bump watch rule and I’m sticking to it.

  2. Laalaa says:

    Enough with the bump watching, dear God.
    So much for women having bodies that look like bodies
    This is so sexist in my opinion

  3. Rachel says:


    This really grates me.

    I look 7 months pregnant most of the time and I certainly would in the land of Pasta.

    Leave women alone, we all have little pouches for various reasons.

    • M says:

      Same! I put on some pandemic weight and it goes straight to my stomach and I have been asked twice recently if I’m pregnant. It’s rude and demoralizing. Unless someone announces it, let’s leave women’s bodies alone please!

  4. Case says:

    I mean…she had twins, she’s getting older. Having a slight curve in her stomach could just be natural fat, or her organs, lol.

    It seems very unlikely to me they’d be expecting again at 43 and 60.

    • Still_Sarah says:

      @ Case : Amal’s “done her duty” by having two kids-boy and girl- so I would agree. I don’t think their choice of a lifestyle supports more kids. They are very mobile, both career-focused. They can balance work-family now but more babies might make that difficult. No reason to mess with perfection.

  5. Lila says:

    Poor thing. I would hate to feel that microscopic focus. If that’s what preggo looks like, then apparently I’m gestating pop tart twins.

    As always, they look happy together, which is lovely.

  6. Imogene says:

    I refuse to comment on bump watch.

    I will say, I bet Amal is even more stunning in person. She seems like the type of person who is arrestingly beautiful and charming in person.

  7. Amy Bee says:

    It doesn’t feel right speculating about this.

    • Truthiness says:

      100%. I respect the hell out of her for being a civil rights lawyer and taking tough cases. The world needs more Amals but it’s not her responsibility to birth them.

  8. Nic919 says:

    This is totally unfair to her. Most people would kill to look as “pregnant” as Amal in those photos. If they are expecting I am sure there will be some sort of actual announcement.

    On a related note, I was listening to the podcast Smartless with Jason Bateman, Will Arnett and Sean Hayes and they were interviewing George Clooney. George still praised Amal to the skies but didn’t make it sound like they were looking to have more kids because the twins keep them busy. Things could change, but it’s unlikely.

    • Anners says:

      I love Smartless! Made me start watching Arrested Development (missed it the first time around).

      And I agree – Clooney sounded tired but very happy with how his family life is right now.

  9. molly says:

    Amal is a 43 year old woman whose body grew and birthed twins four years ago. Yeah, things might not be board flat anymore. SHE’S HUMAN.

    • one of the Marys says:

      I’m not a big gossip follower, celebitchy is it for me, but I thought it was understood she didn’t carry the twins 🤷‍♀️

      • MutedYesterday says:

        There were quite a few pics floating around of her when pregnant- albeit not as many as typical celebrities lol, but I definitely recall paparazzi pics, her in a white dress with him at an award ceremony and the iconic photo of her bout 6-8mths pregnant in a bright red dress with camel covered jacket. She looked so vibrant and regal that day, no comment on how I looked when in same gestational time frame 🙃

        Side note- the wiki page has already been changed saying they announced in “July 2021 Amal was expecting again and Megan and Harry would be their godparents” 🤨guess that fan fiction says all that needs to be known bout this subject lol. Wonder who the twins godparents are? Must’ve missed that announcement with their big revel

  10. Chaine says:

    It’s just the ruching of her dress. She looks fabulous.

  11. ForWhatItsWorth says:

    My guess is if she were pregnant and not ready to announce it she wouldn’t be wearing a slim fitting dress like that, so probably she just I dunno – breathing? Ugh, no wonder so many women in the spotlight have body image issues.

  12. SarahCS says:

    Good grief, poor woman.

  13. dawnchild says:

    As a person who draws bodies from life, it is so annoying to have this assumption that a normal human abdomen stretches like a flat plain between the hip bones.
    It doesn’t.
    It not concave, it’s convex.
    Those curve lines are what’s beautiful about the human body, no matter how slight or deep they are. Rounded lines give volume and form. This flat stomach fantasy doesn’t exist in nature.
    That said, pregnancy changes are also on a spectrum…It can be a thickening or a pointy protrusion, or both.
    And finally, none of our biz what her uterus is doing.

  14. Theothermia says:

    She’s so gorgeous – he’s a lucky dude.

  15. Plain Jane says:

    I’m gonna go there and say, if they are expecting- wonderful! They seem like a very stable, loving couple. Also, if they aren’t expecting- same answer. More than anything, I hope their children (be it 2 or 92) are happy, loved and supported.

  16. Cora says:

    The Clooneys have just released a statement denying the story.

  17. Nan says:

    Never in a million years would I look at her in that white ruched dress and think “pregnant”, let alone a 2nd pregnancy with twins again, unless she conceived them yesterday. Sure, she could be pregnant, for all anybody knows, but she doesn’t LOOK it.

  18. Holland S says:

    This is how eating disorders are triggered.

  19. april says:

    I would say she is not pregnant because I thought they said that was it with the twins. Besides that their family is pretty complete with a boy and a girl and I think they are very satisfied with that.

  20. Soupie says:

    I really like all the clothes she’s wearing here. I wouldn’t be surprised if they are expecting again. Good for them, if they are. George is a good example of people who change. 😉

  21. Anna says:

    Thanks for the laugh, Kaiser “…the only thing I’m gestating is some Bojangles fried chicken” 🙂
