George Clooney’s wife gave birth to twins. In related news, I am no longer the galaxy’s most handsome father of twins

If George Clooney’s twins marry Beyonce’s twins, can we all have at least one news cycle off?

I look forward to Ella and Alexander Clooney being featured on the cover of Sunday Times Style in 2032.

If George and Amal Clooney are willing to bring children into this world then I think it’s all going to be OK in the end. Mazel Tov to them.

Lots of people are just pleased Amal and George gave the babies “normal” names.

Ella and Alexander. Nice, normal names. #GeorgeClooney

Although, some aren’t…

When you find out George and Amal Clooney didn’t name one of the twins Covfefe Clooney…

Many are making sure the headlines surrounding the news are giving credit to Amal’s long list of accomplishments as a human rights lawyer.

CONGRATULATIONS! Human rights lawyer Amal Clooney, a pioneer for refugees, and her husband George are parents of twins Ella and Alexander.

As opposed to just labeling her “George Clooney’s wife,” like AP did.
Amal is so much more than just a WIFE, AP!!!

I think you mean Amal Clooney, noted human rights lawyer, gave birth to twins. #FixedItForYou

OR Amal Clooney (lawyer and activist) and her husband George (Hollywood actor) welcomed twins. OR, just Amal and George Clooney. C’mon @AP

In case you didn’t know, Amal is an extremely accomplished human rights lawyer who has been working to help Syrian refugees for years.
Even Hollywood makes jokes about how much more impressive Amal is compared to George. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler took an iconic dig when they hosted the 2015 Golden Globes.

And then there’s this tweet from Rainn Wilson that isn’t about the twins and isn’t even from today, it’s just funny.

Every time George Clooney sips a Nespresso, an angel loses it’s virginity.

But the funniest reaction to the news came from the statement about the birth itself.
You know, the part where it says, “George is sedated and should recover in a few days.”

Amazing statement from Clooney team after Amal gives birth to twins Ella & Alexander. “George is sedated and should recover in a few days.”

Congratulations on your bundles of joy, George and Amal! I expect they’ll be ready for their first bar exam next week.
