George and Amal Clooney are officially parents of twins! The Clooneys welcomed a boy and a girl today, according to their spokesman Stan Rosenfield in a cleverly worded email to USA Today. Here's what Rosenfield had to say -- and everything we know about the Clooneys' new additions so far.


The Clooneys' witty birth announcement read: "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."

Ha, love it! And those names -- gorgeous! Regal! And adorable, to boot. We wouldn't expect anything less of this glamorous couple.

While the actual place where Amal gave birth has yet to be disclosed, a source told E! News in early May that Amal would give birth across the pond. The Clooneys have spent more than a year extensively renovating their 17th-century manor in Oxfordshire ahead of the twins' birth, USA Today notes. But they also have homes in Studio City, California, and Lake Como, Italy.

E! also reported that Amal plans to keep a pretty low profile initially and dig back into her amazing career as a human rights lawyer about six months after giving birth. After that, she's planning on switching up her schedule a bit, with a lot of time working at home, according to a source.

In April, ET reported that the couple had already begun nesting there and were photographed walking with a few friends by the banks of the river Thames in England.

It sounds like the plan will be for the Clooneys to settle in quite a bit across the pond, as it was reported earlier in the year by E! that the pair want their children to spend at least their first few years in the UK.

So, we can probably safely assume that family friends like Julia Roberts (fellow parent of twins and old pal of the Clooneys) and Cindy Crawford will be hopping flights to meet the beloved babies. Crawford recently joked that Casamigos onesies are the perfect gift for the babies, being that George and Cindy's husband Rande Gerber are cocreators of the brand.
