George Clooney's mom, Nina Clooney, opened up about her son expecting twins with his wife Amal, revealing that she thinks he'll be a "great" dad. Chatting with Us Weekly, the proud grandmother-to-be said: "We are extremely happy for George and Amal, and I cannot imagine two people who would be better parents.

Nina added that she thought the married couple would make wonderful parents. "I think he'll be great," she said. "And I think she'll be a great mom!" George's Oceans 11 co-star and friend Matt Damon has also spoken about the moment he learned of the exciting news: "I was working with him last fall and he pulled me aside on set and I mean, I almost started crying," he told Entertainment Tonight. "I was so happy for him. And I was like, ‘how far along is she?’ And he goes, 'eight weeks.'" The star joked that he gave George a hard time about telling him the news so early, saying: "'Are you out of your mind?! Don't tell anybody else! Don't tell anybody else! Don’t you know the 12-week rule?' Like of course he doesn't. I was like, 'Just shut up, man.' And then four weeks later, I'm like, 'we're good right?' to which George said, "We're good.'"
