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.”

Win a Young America Crib now thru July 27

If you missed syndicated show The Talk last April 27th, you probably also didn’t get to see the awesome Million Dollar Baby Shower that went down during that episode.  It was within days of the birth of co-host Sharon Osbourne’s first grandchild and the ladies were in the mood to celebrate.  They gave away a million dollars worth of prizes.
During it, all of the  gorgeous glowing and colorfully-dressed pregnant women who made up all of the audience got a special treat: They got to take home their choice of Young America Mix Built to Grow™ crib.
“Young America cribs are manufactured right here in the U.S.A. for superior safety and quality,” co-host Julie Chen said. “With more than 1,000 color combinations, parents can customize this crib that is Built to Grow, converting it into a toddler bed and eventually a full-size, so literally the child can use the same furniture from crib to college,” 
I absolutely love convertible cribs. The one we purchased is STILL used and my kids are 9, 7 and 3! 

So it looks like you may have also have missed the chance to win a crib via The Talk’s online giveaway that ended this past April 30 but lucky for you, you read this blog occasionally and now you know that Young America is hosting its own giveaway via its Facebook page through  July 27!

Sweet!! Go to to enter! Good luck!

Behind the Scenes at Molly Sims’ baby gender reveal on The Talk (PHOTOS & VIDEO)

Just sharing some of the behind the scenes photos Molly Sims recently shared of her April 3, 2012 visit to the syndicated talk show, The Talk.  Recall, she used the opportunity to sit-down with the show’s co-hosts Julie Chen, Aisha Tayler, Sheryl Underwood and Sara Gilbert to announce the news that she is expecting a baby boy (See video below). Sims looked fab and so happy and even better on TV than in photos. Maybe the funky reddish effects that people add using these new apps and online digital platforms have something to do with the unnatural photos people publish. Who am I kidding? I’m guilty as the rest of them. I love Instgram!

While I’m sharing old pics, here’s a behind-the-scenes shot from Sims’ Fit Pregnancy photo shoot
