Since George Clooney and his wife Amal welcomed twins Ella and Alexander into the world in June, the actor has seemed perfectly content to steer the majority of his promotional interviews for his charitable efforts and upcoming film Suburbicon to the subjects of Ella, Alexander, and fatherhood.
Most recently, during an interview with Extra to promote Suburbicon—which he wrote, directed, and produced—Clooney shared that although he hadn’t planned on getting married and having kids, he quickly changed his mind on both accounts after meeting Amal. “When Amal and I met and when we got married it became really clear we were lucky,” he said. “It seemed selfish not to share some of that luck with some other people.”
He also opened up about his 4-month-old twins’ already distinct personalities. “Ella is very elegant and dainty. She has these big beautiful eyes, she looks like Amal,” Clooney said, before sharing that Alexander, who weighs “three pounds more than his sister,” is “just a thug, he’s a fat little boy. He laughs louder than everyone in the room, it’s the funniest thing.”
And as happy as the Clooneys are with their new additions, they have no plans to expand any further (at least, not in terms of their own children). When asked if he and Amal were finished having children, Clooney responded, “Done!”
The Oscar winner has previously opened up about Ella’s and Alexander’s defining qualities. In September, while talking to Entertainment Tonight about Suburbicon, Clooney once again gushed about his children. Alexander, he said, “is a moose! Literally, he just sits and he eats,” while Ella “is very elegant, and all eyes.” He also repeated his belief that “she looks like Amal, thank God.”
Clooney also explained to ET how he and Amal landed on their twins’ 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,” he said. “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.”
