This is the first time I’ve been away from the twins..Amal sends pics & Ithink‘God, IwishIwas withthem’
GEORGE Clooney has achieved global fame, amassed a fortune worth hundreds of millions, is happily married to a top lawyer and was recently blessed with twins.

Life for George and Amal, who have a home overlooking the Thames in Sonning, Berkshire, may sound like bliss.
But George said: “I wasn’t completely unaware of what life would be like with children. All my friends have kids and I am godfather to about 20.
“The surprise for me was how much more complicated twins are than one.
“It’s not like twice as much work, it’s more than that. It changes everything and you don’t sleep. So I have such
