Amal Clooney discusses balancing new motherhood with her career as an international barrister and her marriage to Hollywood A-lister George Clooney in the latest issue of Vogue magazine. The international human rights lawyer, 40, offered Vogue a peek at her life for the magazine’s May cover story. Clooney, who gave birth to twins Ella and Alexander last June, revealed that they are already speaking. “We’ve had some ‘Mamas’ and ‘Dadas,’” Clooney told the magazine, adding, “George was very careful to ensure that ‘Mama’ was the first word.” Speaking about meeting her now-husband, Amal says “I was 35 when I met him,” she said about George. “It wasn’t obvious that it was going to happen for me.” But once she and George met, she said, “It felt like the most natural thing in the world. Before that experience, I always hoped there could be love that was overwhelming and didn’t require any weighing or decision-making.” The couple married a year later, in September 2014.
