George Clooney revealed that he cries more than this 3 month-old twinsabout four times a day to be precisebecause he is so exhausted.

In a candid interview with the Daily Mail, he said: "I cry more than they do. I cry four times a day right now, because I'm so tired."

He went on to joke: "Hey, remember back when you were single, before you didn't have to worry about keeping people alive?"

Clooney and his wife Amal welcomed their son and daughter, Alexander and Ella, on 6 June.

Although he wasn't "completely unaware" of what he was letting himself in for as he is a godfather many times over, he wasn't quite prepared for twins.

"The surprise for me was how much more complicated twins is than just the oneit's not just twice as much work, it's more than that.

"And it's not even so much work for me, because these two knuckleheads don't even care that I exist right now!"

Although Clooney did admit those "knuckleheads" have been the "icing on the cake" of his relationship with Amal.


"Look, I'm 56 years old and I didn't think it was going to happen for me. I thought my life would be focused on my career, not relationships, and I'd sort of accepted that."

"And then I met Amal and I thought, "Well, I have this incredible relationship, this is wonderful."
