One of this week's tabloids claims George Clooney and Amal Clooney are expecting twins again. The story is completely untrue. Gossip Cop can confirm that the human rights attorney isn't pregnant with one baby, let alone two.
According to Woman's Day New Zealand, however, the parents of 21-month-old twins Ella and Alexander have another set of babies on the way. The outlet contends that Amal was displaying a "baby bump" while walking the red carpet at the People's Postcode Lottery charity gala in Edinburgh earlier this month.
As for why she's supposedly carrying twins, a supposed source tells the magazine that George gave it away by holding up four fingers on the red carpet. "George was subtly telling the world that he's about to have four kids on his hands," says the alleged insider. "People are convinced it's his way of revealing they're expecting twins again."
The suspicious tipster goes on to say that Amal "has been very selective with her outfits of late, making sure not to wear anything tight-fitting around her stomach." The seemingly phony source adds, "They're great parents, but Ella and Alexander are growing up so fast. Amal and George know if they're going to have more children, they shouldn't wait."
The tabloid's article, which is completely speculative, is simply inaccurate. For starters, Amal told the Hollywood Reporter in September 2017 that she's done having children. When asked if she planned to expand her family, the lawyer shook her head and said, "I'm 39. I already had them quite late." Shortly later, George told "Extra" that he's not having more kids. When asked if he's "done at two," the actor emphatically responded, "Done!"
Additionally, Gossip Cop checked in with a source close to the spouses, who wasn't able to speak on the record, but assures us they're not expecting any more kids. Meanwhile, the publication's narrative isn't original. Just a few months ago, we called out OK! for falsely claiming George and Amal were having twins again. One year prior, the same outlet insisted that Amal was pregnant with two more babies. The scenario didn't pan out either time.
Last June, Gossip Cop busted Heat for making up a story about George telling Amal he wanted twins again. He never made such a request. The gossip media insists on trying to add more kids to the Clooney household, but both the actor and the human rights layer have made it clear they're happy with one set of twins.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
