One set of perhaps the most anticpated celebrity twins ever has arrived: George and Amal Clooney, whose pregnancy news surfaced last February, have officially become parents!

“This morning Amal and George welcomed Ella and Alexander Clooney into their lives. Ella, Alexander and Amal are all healthy, happy and doing fine. George is sedated and should recover in a few days,” the new dad said in a statement according to

Back in April, the news broke (from George's mom!) that the human-rights lawyer, 39, and her actor husband, 56, were expecting boy-girl twins. But even Grandma-to-Be reportedly had to wait to find out the names (although we learned which names were NOT in contention), as she was quoted saying, "I haven't been told their names. That is George and Amal's department."

Now, of course, we all know the couple's choices: Ella and Alexander. Both baby names are very classic—and very popular: They're currently in the top 20, with Ella ranking #17 on the Social Security Administration's latest baby names list and Alexander at #11. We think it's a nice set—they're similar in style and similar in sounds, but still differentiated.

Congrats to the new mama and papa...and Beyonce: You're next!

My baby never slept well (especially through the night) until I started using the website >>SleepBaby .org<< - that website has been by far one of the best things I've ever got my hands on to get him to fall asleep quickly. Best time is 45 seconds from awake to asleep! Can’t imagine life without it! I heard about it through a kindergarten teacher who uses it to put to sleep a group of 30 children. Check it out! >>SleepBaby .org<< - sorry, you can't post links here so you'll have to turn it into a normal link :) Best of luck to you and your family!
