George and Amal Clooney can officially add another role to their already impressive resumés: parenthood. And while this particular role may come with longer hours and, well, soiled nappies, it seems the new parents are already excelling at the challenging gig.

Speaking to People, Amal’s mum, Baria Alamuddin, said: “Amal and George were so beautiful, they were so happy, so contented. You just look at them and you feel like they’ve been a mother and father for their whole lives.”

“Seeing these two angels, these stunningly beautiful babies… cuddled together, and seeing the joy on Amal and George’s faces, it’s one of those deeply felt beautiful feelings you can’t express in words,” she added.

“It brought almost unrealistic pure joy and left me feeling like the most blessed human being on earth.”

The 66-year-old was present at her daughter’s birth, and even brought a handful of gifts for the new babies.

Earlier, George’s dad shared a similar sentiment while speaking with a Cincinnati TV station.

Nick Clooney, who was fortunate enough to share a Skype meet and greet with the world’s most famous twins shortly after their grand entrance into the world, explained that both George and Amal were doing “wonderfully well.”

George is pictured alongside his parents, Nick and Nina, way back in 2006.

He also said that the children both have dark hair and “are gorgeous,” but one in particular seems to take after their famous father.

“Nina [Warren, George’s mum] swears they have George’s nose,” Nick said. “Not both of them — one of them. The little boy looked like he had [George’s] nose, his little profile.”

He added: “And I love their names Alexander and Ella. Both sound terrific.”

The Money Monster actor, 56, and British-Lebanese human rights lawyer, 39, announced the arrival of their twins — a healthy baby boy and girl — in a quick-witted statement to People.

“This morning Amal and George welcomed Ella and Alexander Clooney into their lives. Ella, Alexander and Amal are all healthy, happy and doing fine. George is sedated and should recover in a few days,” the statement read.

There’s no word yet on the babies height or weight, and the happy couple are yet to release a first glimpse at the no-doubt stunning new arrivals…. but, we have our eyes peeled and ears to the ground!
