We're not the only ones who are excited for this powerhouse couple. Matt Damon is thrilled for Amal and George Clooney following the big announcement that the human rights lawyer and the Ocean's Eleven star are expecting twins. The father of four revealed how his pal George shared the good news -- and the story is too sweet!


The Good Will Hunting star told People that he was working with Clooney last fall when the soon-to-be-dad spilled his big secret. 

"...he pulled me aside on set and I mean, I almost started crying. I was so happy for him. And I was like, 'How far along is she?' And he goes, 'Eight weeks,'" Damon told the mag. Then the cautious celeb recalled that he scolded Clooney, telling him, "'Are you out of your mind?! Don't tell anybody else! Don't tell anybody else! Don't you know the 12-week rule?'"

Many couples prefer to wait until they're safely out of the first trimester before making an announcement, but anyone who's ever tried to keep the happy news a secret knows how hard that can be! It's all you think about. We love that George couldn't contain his excitement and confided in his friend. But we also love that Damon was looking out for his pal! 

As far as what kind of parents George and Amal will be, Damon has nothing but compliments for the pair. 

"She's amazing. He hit the jackpot. Just on every level. She is a remarkable woman. They're gonna be great. They're gonna be awesome parents. Those kids are lucky," he said.

So sweet! It seems like so many celebrities (particularly Beyonce, with her own set of twins on the way) are expecting -- the Clooneys will have no shortage of star-studded playdates.
