Who would have imagined that George Clooney and Amal Clooney are the kind of parents who would hand out earphones to fellow passengers for having their kids onboard a long-haul flight?
The A-list Hollywood celebrities recently traveled back to their home in England with their 6-month-old twins, Alexander and Ella. According to reports, the well-meaning new parents distributed noise-canceling headphones with a sweet note apologizing in advance if their kids cry during the flight.
Babies On Board
"Our twins just discovered squawking!! Hope this helps make the flight a little quieter," the note read. Us Weekly added that the note was written on a "George Clooney stationary." It was signed by George and Amal.
The headphones featured the logo of Casamigos, the premium tequila company founded by George, Rande Gerber, and Mike Meldman. Hollywood director, Quentin Tarantino, was one of the first-class passengers who received the custom-made headphones during the flight.
However, a source shared that the Clooneys had nothing to worry about. Alexander and Ella behaved throughout the flight.
"George was nervous," the unnamed source told the site. "But the babies didn't even make a peep."
George, a two-time Academy Award-winning actor, and Amal, a human rights lawyer, got married in a private ceremony in Italy in 2014. They welcomed their twins, Ella and Alexander, in June this year.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter earlier this year, the 56-year-old shared how his life has changed now that he is a father. The Hail, Caesar! star admitted that he and his wife have been deprived of sleep since their children were born.
"[S]he's more unrested than me, obviously," he said. He claimed to be an expert in changing diapers.
As celebrities, George and Amal have to deal with several other problems, namely the horde of paparazzi that follow them around. Unlike their fellow artists, the couple chose to shield their children from the spotlight of Hollywood which made the press even more desperate.
A month after their birth, The Independent reported that George is suing a French magazine, Voici, for publishing photos of the twins. The actor claimed that unauthorized photographers sneaked past the guardhouse, scaled their fence, and climbed a tree to take photos of the children. The family was staying at their Lake Como estate in Italy at the time of the incident.
George will soon return to work in the television adaptation of Catch-22, a war novel written by Joseph Heller.
