George Clooney Opens Up About Becoming a Dad: “I Know Swaddling”

George Clooney sure has lots o’ big projects cooking: his new movie “Suburbicon” and, most important of all, the impending arrival of twins with wife Amal.

The actor/director was at CinemaCon in Las Vegas where he opened up to Extra‘s Renee Bargh about how Amal is feeling these days: “She is doing really great. She is amazing. I don’t have anything to do. There is nothing I can do to help, but make tea and stuff.”

The babies, reportedly due this summer, will be the first children for the 55-year-old star and the 39-year-old international human rights attorney.

Clooney claims he is ready, insisting, “I know swaddling… I know what I’m in for.”

He thinks he knows what he’s in for. LOL.

Clooney also joked that diapers will be an important part of life (true), but “for me, not for the kids” (also true).

His friend Julianne Moore, who stars in “Suburbicon,” also thinks he’s ready. She hit the red carpet with George and raved, “I think it is great. I think he is going to be a natural. I’m not worried about him at all.”

George directs “Suburbicon,” a new comedy about a quiet family town where the best and worst of humanity is hilariously reflected through the deeds of seemingly ordinary people. The film’s star-studded cast includes Moore, Matt Damon, Oscar Isaac and Josh Brolin.

Clooney demurred, “You always look good when you hire really, really, really talented actors.”

“Suburbicon” opens in theaters November 3.
