NEW YORK — George and Amal Clooney have welcomed twins Ella and Alexander Clooney.

The pair was born Tuesday morning, according to George Clooney’s publicist Stan Rosenfield. He says both are “happy, healthy and doing fine.”

Jokes Rosenfield, “George is sedated and should recover in a few days.”

“I’ve thought about it, I suppose, but it hasn’t been high on my list,” he said. “I’ve been asked it a lot lately, because I’ve gotten married and I’m doing a movie with kids in it. You should see how different, how creative the way they ask me.”

Rose pressed Clooney further and said, “You have such a great dad and you’re so close to him. It must be a powerful emotion.” 

Clooney responded that he was very close to his family and said, “It is and I’m really close with my mom, too.”
