“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 People.com.
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!
