Days after Beyoncé announced she was pregnant with not one but two Queen B babies earlier this month, news soon came to light that George Clooney and his human rights lawyer wife, Amal, were also expecting twins.

Yes, I agree – the world population did just get that bit better.

And now, a week after George's mother might have revealed the gender of her soon-to-be grandchildren, the Ocean's Eleven actor has opened up for the first time about becoming a first-time father.

In an interview with the French television programme Rencontres de Cinema, George told journalist Laurent Weil: 'We are really happy and really excited. It's going to be an adventure.

'We've sort of embraced it all…with arms wide open,' he gushed.

The actor – who was just honoured at The Caesar Awards in France over the weekend – also took the opportunity to shed like on how his 'supportive' friends reacted to the news.

'It got really quiet,' he revealed. 'And they all just started making baby crying noises, and the whole table just busted up laughing.'

Despite criticism the actor is too old to become a father at the age of 55, Clooney admitted he looks to other actors who have welcomed children later in life as inspiration.

We've sort of embraced it all…with arms wide open.

Naming the likes of 89-year-old Jean-Paul Belmondo, who welcomed a child with his second wife, Nathalie Tardivel, in 2003, the academy award-winning director said: 'So, I'm feeling a little better about being 56 by the time [the twins come].'

With Amal reportedly expected to give birth in June, we're already starting the countdown to welcoming more Clooneys to the world.
