We hope you have your banners and balloons at the ready because we're happy to announce international human rights lawyer, Amal Clooney, has given birth to a set of twins.

Today, the Lebanon-born lawyer and her husband, actor George Clooney, welcomed their children, Ella and Alexander Clooney, five months after announcing Amal's pregnancy.

A statement from People reports: 'This morning Amal and George welcomed Ella and Alexander Clooney into their lives. Ella, Alexander and Amal are all healthy, happy and doing fine. George is sedated and should recover in a few days.'

The first time parents announced their new bundle of joys' births, months after the Ocean's Eleven actor revealed his wife would not be traveling to locations 'where she knows she isn't welcome', such as South Sudan or the Congo, to avoid danger during her pregnancy.

Amal's job – which has, over the years, seen her represent Julian Assange, the former prime minister of Ukraine, Yulia Tymoshenko and Azerbaijani journalist, Khadija Ismayilova – often required her to visit places of conflict to take on cases, such as that of a Yazidi client formerly persecuted and trafficked under the Islamic State regime.

Earlier this year, George opened up about their pairs arrangements for the welcoming of their new children to Paris Match, revealing: 'We have the chance to live between three countries: Italy, America and England.'

'But as soon as the children go to school, it'll be necessary to choose where to settle. In the meantime, we will continue to move according to our respective schedules,' he added.

With philanthropic parents who champion justice and have homes across the world, we bet their brood will be the most well-educated, bilingual and ethical kids in any given primary school.

Congratulations, Amal and George!
