‘Listen, I didn’t want to get married. I didn’t want to have kids. And then this extraordinary human being walked into my life and I just fell madly in love. Then I knew from the minute I met her that everything was going to be different,’ he said.

‘I didn’t know I’d have twins. There is that moment when you go to the doctor and they pull out this piece of paper which is a sonogram and they go, “Here” and you go, “It’s a baby boy.” I’m like, “Baby boy, fantastic.” And then they said, “And the other one is the girl” and I was like, “Oh s**t.”‘

He added: [Amal’s] sister has twins and I was gobsmacked because … I was kind of up for one. I love it now. And thank God they have each other during the pandemic.’

The Ocean’s Eleven star remembered a time when they first discussed having children together.

‘So we’ve been married for about a year and we were at a friend’s house, and they had a kid there which was loud and obnoxious and I was like, “Holy s**t.” We went outside for a walk,’ he said. 

‘And she’d never thought about it, really. And so then she said, “We are awfully lucky in life.” And I said, “Yeah, we are lucky we found each other.” She said, “Seems like that luck should be shared with some other folks.”‘

Clooney ‘thought about it for maybe a minute’ and didn’t think either of them had ‘made a decision’ about kids.

‘I learned to be scrappy because of that. You can put me in any situation, I can survive,’ Clooney said. ‘I can survive anything. I had to make sure that that’s something that our kids get. That’s important to me’  (seen in October)

‘And then I just said, “Well, I mean, if you’re in” and she said, “I think we should try.” I have to say it was very emotional because I really was convinced that wasn’t my lot in life and was comfortable with that,” he said.

Clooney shared the one thing that he wants to instill in his children, four-year-old twins Ella and Alexander.

‘I’m really aware of a couple of things, which is I’m aware of the danger of celebrity with kids and I’m aware of the danger of having means with kids,’ he said.

‘I learned to be scrappy because of that. You can put me in any situation, I can survive,’ Clooney said. ‘I can survive anything. I had to make sure that that’s something that our kids get. That’s important to me.’
