Former President Barack Obama paid a visit to the Clooneys at their historic mansion west of London on May 27, just a week prior to birth of the twins.

As of Tuesday morning, George and Amal Clooney became proud parents of twins a girl named Ella and a boy named Alexander. The children were born at a London hospital.

In a joint statement issued by publicist Stan Rosenfield, the couple announced that mother and babies are "happy healthy and doing fine," adding drily that "George is sedated and should recover in a few days."
Actor George Clooney, 56, and international human rights lawyer Amal Alamuddin, 39, were married in Italy in 2014, according to ABC News. Neither had previous children.

Former President Barack Obama paid a visit to the Clooneys at their historic mansion west of London on May 27, just a week prior to birth of the twins.

"Obama arrived around 7:15 in the evening [local time] and left at around 11:30," reports People. "[He] had tons of security around him."

Since her marriage, Amal Clooney has continued working as a human rights lawyer. In an address to the United Nations in March, she urged an investigation of human rights violations by extremists in Iraq and Syria.

Despite efforts to keep a low profile, rumors abounded about during Amal's pregnancy about the sexes of the babies, but the parents reportedly decided to remain in the dark prior to the births.

"I don't know where this rumor comes from that we're going to have a boy and a girl," said George Clooney in February, according to USA Today. "We ourselves don't know yet and don't want to know.
