Julia Roberts Reveals She's Bonding With George Clooney Over Parenthood
The actress opened up to Ellen Degeneres about her dear friend George Clooney's next chapter as a dad-to-be.
Ocean's Eleven co-stars Julia Roberts and George Clooney go way back. So, now that Clooney is about to be a dad for the first time — to twins, with wife Amal Clooney — it makes sense that Roberts has discussed parenthood with her dear friend. While appearing on Ellen on Friday, May 19, Roberts revealed that she has offered Clooney a few parenting tips, but ultimately, the first-time parents don't really need words of wisdom from others.
"It's going to be so fun," the famous mom of three noted. "They are a great couple, and I don't think they need advice from me or anybody else. Also, nobody's with you at 3 a.m. in the morning when you're going, 'What are we doing? Where did they come from and when are they going?' You get through it and you figure it out — everybody does. It's trial and error and a whole lot of tears, and it's amazing." So true!
Here's the cute clip of Roberts keeping it real about those late nights with not one but two newborns!

If anyone in the Clooneys' circle most definitely knows what they're talking about when it coms to the incredible experience of raising twins, it's Julia Roberts! She and husband Danny Moder are parents to 12-year-old twins Hazel and Finn and 9-year-old son Henry. Love to hear that she and Clooney are bonding over this exciting time.
