It looks like Beyoncé and Jay Z aren’t the only celebrity power couple expecting twins in 2017.

On Thursday’s episode of The Talk, Julie Chen confirmed that supercouple Amal and George Clooney are expecting twins.

Chen made the announcement on the program, which airs on Global TV, during its hot topics segment. After discussing who gets the armrest on a plane, Chen joked that Clooney should give his wife the option.

Chen went on to elaborate on the pregnancy confirmation: “What we did find out, that no one else is reporting, is that the twins are due this June.”

“I’m thrilled for him. 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 went on to describe the moment George told him he was going to be a dad.

“I was working with him last fall and 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 followed that up with: “‘Are you out of your mind?! Don’t tell anybody else! Don’t tell anybody else! Don’t you know the 12-week rule?’ Like of course he doesn’t. And then four weeks later, I’m like, ‘we’re good right?'” And George confirmed, “We’re good.”


Amal, 39, and George, 55, have been married for over two years, after tying the knot in Italy in September 2014.
