Amal Clooney Plans to Get Back to Work 6 Months After Twins Are Born

It’s the final countdown!

In less than a month, Amal Clooney and George Clooney will welcome twins—a boy and a girl. Since The Talk‘s Julie Chen announced the barrister’s pregnancy in February, Amal has been taking it easy as she continues to advocate on behalf of the Yazidis in Iraq—a cause near and dear to her heart. “Amal is trying not to overexert herself,” a source tells E! News exclusively, adding that she’ll give birth in London. “She’s been very sensible throughout this pregnancy.”


After the twins’ birth, Amal will begin maternity leave. “She plans to be back at work around six months after giving birth, but her schedule will be greatly different than before,” the source says. “A lot of time spent working at home. She has a great office set up at the Sonning house.” According to the source, Amal has no intention of quitting the career she’s worked so hard for.

And, as E! News previously reported, the Clooneys plan to raise their children in the U.K.

Ahead of the twins’ arrival, the source says the couple consulted with Ilse Crawford, a London-based interior designer who focuses on human needs and “has a somewhat holistic approach to design.” According to the source, Amal and George waited until she was six months pregnant before they had the twins’ nursery decorated, because “they didn’t want to rush or jinx things.”

The Clooneys chose many of the items themselves. When they visited Paris in February, for example, they bought a few items at a boutique called Baudou and shipped them to the U.K.

The couple has also decided that after the twins come home, they won’t hire a live-in or full-time nanny. Instead, they’ll have a night nurse to help set a sleeping schedule in the beginning. Amal’s mom, journalist Baria Alamuddin, has expressed that she would like to be involved, too.

Amal’s final trimester hasn’t been all about the babies, of course. As E! News exclusively reported Monday, she orchestrated a surprise 56th birthday party for George; She asked their friends, Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber, to help her pull it off. “Amal made it a joint birthday celebration,” an insider revealed, “since Rande’s birthday was just a couple of weeks ago.” Both Cindy and Rande shared photos from the celebration via Instagram, but Amal—who’s been keeping a low profile—did not appear in any of them. As the insider explained, “Technically her due date is next month, but they expect the twins to come early. It’s just a waiting game now.”

Cindy and Rande can’t wait.

“I’m very excited. Obviously we’re fans of parenthood. I think it’s incredible for George and it really took Amal, I think, [for him to want to be a dad],” Cindy told E! News‘ Marc Malkin in March. “She’s just so amazing and they’re just so happy. It just seemed like a natural next step.”

“I’m not sure he’ll be changing diapers,” Rande joked.

Cindy teased her husband, saying, “By the way, you don’t know how to do diapers.”

When E! News caught up with George later that month, he promised that he does, in fact, know how to change diapers. “Hang on for a minute! I played a pediatrician on ER, so I know how to work on extra children,” the actor explained. “If there are any accidents, I’m there. I’m the guy.”

Surprise! Zach Galifianakis Kept the Birth of His 2nd Child, Rufus, From Public

zach-galifiniakis-engaged

You know how there are a few private celebrities out there that do an excellent job at keeping pregnancy and birth news private?  Here is another secret delivery news:

E! News exclusively learned that actor Zach Galifianakis and Quinn Lundberg welcomed their second child, a baby boy named Rufus Emmanuel Lundberg on November 7, 2016.


The comedic actor and his wife of four years are also parents to a 3-year-old son.During a 2014 appearance on the Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Zach finally revealed their firstborn’s gender an entire year after Lundberg had given birth.

“We have a boy!” he shared, adding, “I think fatherhood is just the greatest thing, it really really is.”

The Between Two Ferns host has kept most of the details surrounding his life off screen extremely private. (And he certainly knows how to keep a secret!)

But earlier this year, Galifianakis stopped by Conan with a little bit more insight into his experience as a father.

“I’m strict. He’s 2 and right now I have him on a strict exercise routine. When he gets out of the crib it’s 50 push-ups right away,” the funnyman joked to Conan O’Brien. “To have a really fit 2-year-old and to show that he can kick other 2-year-old’s butts is really important.”

Zach also shared a particular hilarious anecdote about a time his son recognized his dad’s face on the side of a bus billboard. The 47-year-old explained, “I didn’t know what to say because I hadn’t really thought about it. He goes, ‘Who’s that?’ and I don’t know why but I said, ‘Oh, some idiot.’ Thirty seconds later I hear him mumbling to himself, ‘Some idiot.'” LOL!

As for whether or not Zach and Quinn hope to welcome even more little ones into their fam, he shared, “I’d like to have 10 kids.”

Congratulations, you two!
