AMAL’S START­ING IVF

In Touch (USA) - - In The Know -

The road to par­ent­hood hasn’t been easy for George and Amal Clooney. Af­ter un­suc­cess­fully try­ing for a baby all summer, the hu­man rights lawyer sought the help of a fer­til­ity doc­tor. “Amal will be start­ing in vitro fer­til­iza­tion next month,” a source tells In Touch. “Given their ages — Amal’s 38 and George is 55 — the doc­tor said they need to start right away be­cause time isn’t on their side.” It was a blow to the cou­ple. “Re­sort­ing to IVF was a very hard de­ci­sion, es­pe­cially for George be­cause he’s never had trou­ble do­ing any­thing be­fore,” says the source, adding that Amal is not only dis­ap­pointed but she’s also scared. “She’s afraid of nee­dles, so her big­gest fear is get­ting the hor­mone in­jec­tions. But she knows it’s worth it. She’ll do any­thing to start a fam­ily with George.”

“Age is a huge fac­tor as to why they are hav­ing such trou­ble get­ting preg­nant,” says a source.
