Amal Clooney Won’t Let George Choose These Names For Their Twins

Beyond acting, filmmaking and activism, George Clooney is also known for another “talent”: being a consummate joker. So it’s no surprise that in an interview with Entertainment Tonight, George teased what he’d hoped to call the twins before wife Amal (rightfully) shot him down: “My wife says I can’t name them Casa and Amigos,” he said. “That’s the one thing I’m not allowed to do.”

Oh, George, naming the kids after your tequila company?  “It was just a thought,” George shrugged. “I mean, you know, it’s a family business.”

Well, we can only hope he cradles his babies as tenderly and proudly as he carries that case of his tequila.
