George Clooney has opened up about how exhausting being a father of twins really is—so exhausting, in fact, that it makes him very emotional.

"They don't cry," he says of his three-month-old twins. "I cry more than they do. I cry four times a day right now, because I'm so tired."

He also showed his admiration for Amal, who he says bears the brunt of fatigue and hard work more than he does.

"All they want to do is eat, so I have nothing to give them except a bottle once in a while and they're happy about that, but it's mostly Amal for them at the moment. I don't even really understand what's going on," he told the Daily Mail (opens in new tab)"And I have such admiration for my wife because she's breastfeeding them and getting about two hours of sleep per interval, and the love they have for her is a sight to see and it's beautiful."

But despite the sleep deprivation and the noise, Clooney couldn't be happier with his lot. He never expected to find love or have his own family.

"All of this is icing on the cake," he says. "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." And then...all of a sudden we have these two knuckleheads around who make me laugh every day."
