A mother of 12-year-old twins, Hazel and Phinnaeus, Julia Roberts can easily be called a seasoned professional when it comes to raising babies born just one minute apart.
Dropping by The Ellen Show recently, Julia revealed that her long-time pal and four-time co-star, George Clooney, had reached out to her for advice as he awaits the imminent arrival of twins with wife Amal Clooney.
When asked if she’d passed on any wise words to the Money Monster star, the 49-year-old replied “Yes,” before breaking out into a fit of giggles.
“It’s going to be so fun," Julia shared. "They are a great couple, and I think they don’t need advice from me and anybody else.”
Going on she explained: “Also, you know, nobody’s there with you at three o’clock in the morning when you’re going, ‘What are we doing? Where did they come from,' and 'When are they going?’ But you get through it. You figure it out—everybody does. It’s a trial and error and a whole lot of tears,” she concluded.
The countdown is well and truly on as George and Amal are expected to welcome their new family members, a boy and a girl, any day now.
Speaking of becoming a dad, the former bachelor told E! News in March that the news that he and his wife were expecting twins came as the ultimate blessing.
"I didn't know that we'd have kids. I was very happy that we were going to get married, and then [a pregnancy] seemed like the next step."
And like any good actor, you can be sure George has done his research and is prepared for the journey ahead.
"I know swaddling. I know what I'm in for," he said to Extra recently.
And what about diapers? "For me, not for the kids," the star joked.
We're sure you'll be a great dad, George!
