Celeb nanny spills on the Clooneys and Tim­ber­lakes

They still haven’t been of­fi­cially in­tro­duced to the world, but thanks to Con­nie Simp­son, we have an in­side glimpse at what life is like for 10-month-old twins Ella and Alexan­der Clooney.

Nanny Con­nie came out of re­tire­ment last June to look af­ter Ge­orge and Amal’s twins – and she counts Jes­sica Biel and Justin Tim­ber­lake, Emily Blunt and John Krasin­ski, and Matt Da­mon and Lu­ciana Bar­roso among her for­mer clients.

Con­nie says the Clooneys’ lit­tle girl and boy are mini-mes of their fa­mous par­ents.

“Ella has a dain­ti­ness and a beau­ti­ful glow, like Amal,” she re­veals. “And the look Ge­orge has in his movies, his son shows, too – it’s the cutest thing!

“It’s funny to see the kids take on their par­ents’ per­son­al­i­ties. They’re all so cute to­gether.”

Proud mum Amal re­cently opened up about her twins’ mile­stones, shar­ing, “W “We’ve ’ had some Ma­mas and Dadas. Ge­orge was very care­ful to en­sure Mama was first!”

Nanny Con­nie has just re­leased a book about her time in the nanny world, dish­ing all the in­side info on what it’s like to help celebrity cou­ples nav­i­gate par­ent­hood.

She re­veals Jes­sica wanted ev­ery­thing to be per­fect for lit­tle Si­las to come into the world in 2015, and planned to have an un­med­i­cated child­birth – but ended up hav­ing an emer­gency cae­sarean in­stead.

Con­nie says she helped the ac­tress re­lax her ex­pec­ta­tions about mother­hood, and cooked com­fort food for her, ad­ding, “The diet was out the win­dow!”

When Con­nie came to help Matt and Lu­ciana with their sec­ond daugh­ter Gia in 2008, they were amazed she was able to help her get into a solid sleep rou­tine where they had failed.

“They’d have the room pitch black and play a song over and over again,” Con­nie says.

She changed the rou­tine to a sim­ple warm bath, soft mu­sic, a quick mas­sage and a bot­tle of milk.

“I placed Gia into her bassinet and just like that, she was off hav­ing a party with the sand­man,” she says. “Matt and Lucy looked at me like I was Hou­dini!”

Emily and John, too, are for­ever grate­ful, say­ing, “You changed our lives!”
