Longtime Clooney pal Matt Damon says he nearly cried upon learning that George and Amal Clooney are expecting twins in June 2017. The Jason Bourne actor was one of the first to know the joyous news.
“I was working with him last fall and he pulled me aside on set and I mean, I almost started crying,” Damon said. “I was so happy for him.”
Damon, a father of four, then told Clooney not to tell anyone else until Amal was past the symbolic 12 weeks, after which time the risk of miscarriage drops substantially.
“They’re gonna be awesome parents,” Damon told ET. “Those kids are lucky.”
