George and Amal Clooney Welcome Birth of Twins

George and Amal Clooney have welcomed twins Ella and Alexander Clooney.

The pair was born Tuesday morning, according to George Clooney's publicist Stan Rosenfield. He said both are "happy, healthy and doing fine."

"George is sedated and should recover in a few days," Rosenfield joked.

Clooney, 56, and lawyer Amal Alamuddin, 39, married in 2014. The twins are the first children for both.

No other details were immediately available. The Clooneys had been living in London while awaiting the arrival of their babies.

In an interview in February with the French program "Rencontres de Cinema," Clooney said fatherhood was "going to be an adventure."
