George Clooney's been making the rounds promoting his new Hulu miniseries Catch-22 (yes, based on the same book you probably had to read in high school). He's been taking the opportunity to swoon over his gorgeous wife Amal Clooney, and give an intimate look at what his life at home is like with their two children. And the details are so so cute that I can hardly stand it.
In an exclusive to Entertainment Tonight (opens in new tab), George said he was as unlike his character—an angry general—as it's possible to be. "I'm not mad at anything. I got a brilliant, beautiful wife, I got two knuckleheads for kids, life's great." He added that his kids were doing well.
"They're good. They're fat! To keep 'em quiet, you just feed 'em," he laughed. (George as proud dad scrambling to feed his almost two-year-olds—an amazing image.)
He also laughed (opens in new tab) at the fact that Baby Sussex now shares a birthday with him. "It was a little irritating, because that kid really is stealing my thunder! This was my day! I was sharing it already with Orson Welles and Sigmund Freud!'
Speaking to NBC News / NBC’S TODAY (opens in new tab) earlier on Tuesday, he gave a little more detail on his two children:
He spoke about Amal, too, and all the amazing things she's doing. "She's...taking I.S.I.S. to court for the first time anybody's taking I.S.I.S. to court…she's working on trying to get the Reuters journalists out of Myanmar. She's doing all that, and she's also an incredible mom. Like an incredible mom. And a pretty great wife too. So I feel like I hit the jackpot."
Here's a full look at the happy couple at last night's premiere:
Couple goals, forever and ever.
