Hallelujah. Amal Clooney has given birth to twins, a spokesperson for her and her husband George has confirmed. The twins are the first children of the human rights lawyer and her Hollywood actor husband.

“This morning Amal and George welcomed Ella and Alexander Clooney into their lives,” the statement reads. “Ella, Alexander and Amal are all healthy, happy and doing fine. George is sedated and should recover in a few days.”

The couple have spent the last few years swanning around some pretty dangerous parts of the world as part of their humanitarian work – George for the UN and Amal in her capacity as an internationally renowned lawyer. That being said, they’ve promised they won’t be doing that quite as much now they’re hauling bébé twins.

“We decided to be much more responsible, to avoid the danger,” said George. “I will not go to South Sudan any more and in the Congo, Amal will no longer go to Iraq and she will avoid places where she knows she is not welcome.”
