George Clooney credits his wife, Amal Clooney for a lot of things. But he also revealed that it was the human rights lawyer that convinced him to have a baby.
George Clooney was already in his 50s when he wed Amal, and they had their twins, Alexander and Elle when he was 56 years old. Throughout his life, the Ocean’s Eleven actor never even considered having a baby let alone twins, but having his kids certainly changed his life for the better.

Amal Clooney Encouraged George Clooney To Have A Baby
During a recent interview on the WTF With Marc Maron podcast, George revealed that he and Amal had already been married for over a year and they never even talked about having children. But one day, after visiting their friend’s house, the couple saw a loud and obnoxious kid.
Following their encounter with the boy, George and Amal went out for a walk. The latter told the actor that they’ve been awfully lucky in life, and George couldn’t agree more. But it is what Amal said next that surprised George.
“She said, 'Seems like that luck should be shared with some other folks,’” George said via People.
The Up In the Air actor was surprised with what his wife said, but he didn’t think that this was the actual moment that they agreed to try for a baby.
“And then I just said, 'Well, I mean, if you're in,' and she said, 'I think we should try.' I have to say it was very emotional because I really was convinced that wasn't my lot in life and was comfortable with that,” he said.
Having Twins Was A Surprise For George Clooney, Amal Clooney
George and Amal were successful in trying for their first child. But the couple was in for another surprise when they visited Amal’s doctor to get a sonogram.
“Listen, I didn't want to get married. I didn't want to have kids. And then this extraordinary human being walked into my life and I just fell madly in love. Then I knew from the minute I met her that everything was going to be different. I didn’t know I’d have twins. There is that moment when you go to the doctor and they pull out this piece of paper which is a sonogram and they go, ‘Here' and you go, 'It's a baby boy.' I'm like, 'Baby boy, fantastic.’ And then they said, 'And the other one is the girl,’” he said.
George revealed that Amal’s sister also has twins. And even though George had reservations about having two children at once, the actor said that he wouldn’t change it for the world now.
