He won’t stand for it. George Clooney promised to consider legal action against French journal Voici for taking and posting paparazzi photographs of his newborn twins, Ella and Alexander, with wife Amal Clooney.
“Over the last week, photographers from Voici magazine scaled our fence, climbed our tree and illegally took pictures of our infants inside our home,” the actor said in a statement. “Make no mistake: The photographers, the agency and the magazine will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. The safety of our children demands it.”
The new parents have yet to release any photos of the twins, but did confirm they welcomed a baby boy and girl on Tuesday, June 6. “This morning Amal and George welcomed Ella and Alexander Clooney into their lives. Ella, Alexander and Amal are all healthy, happy and doing fine,” a rep for the Oscar winner told in a statement. “George is sedated and should recover in a few days.”
George’s dad, Nick Clooney, has also gushed about his grandchildren. “They are gorgeous. [My wife] Nina swears they have George’s nose,” he told WXIX. “Not both of them, one of them. The little boy looked like he had [George’s] nose. His little profile.”
