George Clooney couldn't be a prouder papa of his 3-month-old twins, Alexander and Ella. The actor, who welcomed his first children with wife Amal Clooney back in June, opened up about their personalities to Entertainment Tonight, and it sounds like they're already quite charismatic like their parents!

While promoting his new film Suburbicon, which he directed, he spoke openly about his kiddos. "They start out with a personality right off the bat." He then spoke to Matt Damon who stars in the flick: ”[Alexander] is a thug already. You saw him. He’s a moose! Literally, he just sits and he eats.”

“He looks like he could bounce right now, some place in Hollywood,” Damon noted. "Like, checking IDs on the way into the nursery,” Clooney replied. Ha! 

Meanwhile, little Ella sounds like she's taking after her mama. “She’s very elegant, and all eyes,” Clooney said of his little girl. “She looks like Amal, thank god.”

The 56-year-old also shared the thought process behind the babies' names: “[Amal and I] didn’t want to have really dumb names ... “We figured these kids are going to be looked at a lot and watched and [have their] every move sort of judged, and we wanted them to at least have a break with the names. So we looked for some sort of normal names. We didn’t have any great inspiration. It wasn’t Alexander the Great and Ella Fitzgerald.”

Nonetheless, their names seem quite fitting already! Too cute! We can't wait to hear and see even more of the Clooney kids.
