George Clooney suffering from first-time dad nerves as couple prepare for twins

George Clooney is about to become daddy to a set of twins with his wife Amal.

The Oceans Eleven star is understandably “excited but nervous” about impending fatherhood as the couple get set to become parents for the first time.

It was recently confirmed that the couple, who married in 2015, were expecting twins.

While it’s rumoured that they are having ‘one of each’, details of the babies’ sex has not been revealed.

”George is excited but nervous. He is excited about the kids, but also has the normal amount of nerves that come with being parents,” an insider said.

”Amal strikes me as someone who’ll be a fantastic mother. Intelligent, loving, funny, smart, nurturing. She doesn’t seem someone who will let kids get away with being Hollywood children.”

The Monuments Men star is reportedly planning to take a step back from work while they get ready to welcome their babies.

”Amal stopped traveling for dangerous missions months ago,” the source told People magazine.

”George knows how brilliant Amal is in her work and how nurturing of a person she is. He knows she will be a wonderful mother.

”[George had previously] hinted that he might be taking some time off. That would be very rare for him, but now it all adds up. He’s going to be the best dad.”

George’s pal Matt Damon recently revealed that they’d spoken about what it takes to bring up twins. The father-of-four dished on their chats and the Bourne Identity star joked he didn’t know how “anyone” could raise a set of twins.

”[George] said to me, ‘Well, you have four.’ And I said, ‘Yeah, but not at once!’ We did it one at a time. I don’t know how anybody does twins. Those sleepless nights … and there’s two of them? There’s just no way. But we’ll see,” he said.

Matt also revealed that proud daddy George had been telling his close pals once they found out the news.

”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,'” he said.

”[I said,] ‘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. ‘Just shut up, man.’ And then four weeks later, I’m like, ‘We’re good right?’ [George confirmed] ‘We’re good.”’
