George Clooney Twins Due Date Approaching as Actor Misses Ceremony So He Wouldn't Miss The Birth of His Babies
George Clooney was a no-show for the Aurora Prize for Awakening Community ceremony on Sunday in Yerevan, Armenia. The soon-to-be dad explained why he could not attend the ceremony in a video message.
"I really would have been [in Yerevan], but if I came there and my wife had the twins while I was there, I could never come home," he jokingly said. His wife, Amal Clooney, 39, is expected to give birth in June.
Last year, the actor was able to attend the ceremony and serve as the co-chair of the award's prize selection committee. He presented an award at the inaugural gathering which honored the survivors of the Armenian genocide. Both George and Amal have been consistent human rights advocates.
In the past, the Golden Globe winner was hesitant on having children. He won a bet against actresses, Nicole Kidman and Michelle Pfeiffer, that he would not be a father by the age of 40 and extended it up to ten years- which he clearly would have won. However, he is clearly ecstatic with the thought of being a father and will soon be able to see his children.
Amal's baby news has turned Clooney into embracing the role of being a father.
"I don't know how you fully digest [having two], but I'm excited," he told ET in March. "It will be fun."
The Clooneys are in full preparation mode as they await the arrival of their twins. The couple is currently staying in London, where they can savor their last few weeks of peace and quiet.
"They're counting down the days and pretty much at the edge of their seats," a source shared recently. "Every day, one of them is like, 'It's going to be today. I can feel it' and then it doesn't happen."
There is no doubt that there is never a dull moment in the Clooney household!
