At age 57, actor George Clooney is gearing up to celebrate his second-ever Father’s Day. He became a new dad in June 2017 after the birth of his twins, Ella and Alexander Clooney with wife Amal Clooney.
So how is the big actor planning to celebrate Father’s Day this year? Clooney has no idea, but he does have a couple guesses.
“The kids are making me a cake already and they’re working on a card already,” Clooney joked at the American Film Institute tribute event on June 7. “It’s gonna be fun, I’m excited.”
Amal Clooney confirmed celebration plans were in the works, to be revealed on June 17. “It’s gonna be a surprise,” she said, disclosing no details.
The Clooney family will celebrate Father’s Day just weeks after celebrating a massive milestone: Ella and Alexander’s first birthday.
The twins turned one on June 6, which they celebrated with a lengthy jet-lagged nap, according to Clooney.
Birthday cake was involved, Clooney said, but his twins were more interested in sleeping than eating. Clooney said he and Amal would “wake them up and show it to them and then they’d go back to sleep.”
George and Amal have kept their children relatively out of the spotlight during their first year of life.
During the recent AFI tribute, Amal shone the spotlight specifically on George’s role as husband and father.
“My love, what I have found with you is the great love that I always hoped existed,” Amal said. “And seeing you with our children, Ella and Alexander, is the greatest joy in my life.”
Sources close to the family echoed Amal’s words when it comes to parenting. “George is a great dad — so fun and silly,” an insider told PEOPLE.
“He always plays with the babies, and seems to love it,” the source said. “He entertains them for hours.”
The couple appears to be doing quite well managing parenthood along with stardom. “They make an incredible team,” the insider said.
