George Clooney Opens Up About Life as a Dad: Spit-Up, Diapers and All
It’s been nearly three months since the arrival of the Clooney twins, Ella and Alexander, and George Clooney has some pretty spot-on thoughts about parenthood.
Yesterday, Clooney opened up to USA Today about his most defining role yet: as a father. In the interview, he perfectly captures the simultaneous fear and awe all parents experience.
The dad of two poignantly shared, “Suddenly, you’re responsible for other people, which is terrifying.” Yep.
He also proved he’s officially the new king of dad jokes: “I just have to clean the barf off of my tux. It used to be my barf but now it’s the twins’ barf. So it all works out.” Har har, George.
Clooney, who directed the upcoming film Suburbicon, went on to discuss his current household duties like changing diapers and getting the twins moving. While he didn’t expect to be a parent to twins at his age, he’s enjoying the ride.
The dapper dad also took a moment to talk about his gorgeous, accomplished wife Amal and her superb mothering skills (natch). He gushed, “She’s like an Olympic athlete. She’s doing so beautifully.” Color us not surprised.
Now that they’re rounding out the mature age of three months, we’re keeping our fingers crossed for an Ella and Alexander pic soon, tuxedo spit-up and all.
