And now it seems Matt Damon has confirmed the pair’s happy news, as he chastised his friend for telling people too early.
“I was working with him last fall and he pulled me aside on set and I mean, I almost started crying,” the actor told Entertainment Tonight Canada.
“I was so happy for him.
“I was like, ‘how far along is she?’ And he goes, ‘eight weeks.’

“‘Are you out of your mind?! Don’t tell anybody else! Don’t tell anybody else! Don’t you know the 12-week rule?’
“Like of course he doesn’t. I was like, ‘just shut up, man.’
“And then four weeks later, I’m like, ‘we’re good right?’ ‘We’re good.’”
The 46 year old then went on to say that he thought George and Amal would be “awesome parents”.

“I’m thrilled for him,” The Great Wall star said.
“She’s amazing. He hit the jackpot. Just on every level.
“She is a remarkable woman. They’re gonna be great. They’re gonna be awesome parents. Those kids are lucky.”
George and Amal tied the knot in 2014 in a lavish ceremony held in Venice, Italy.

And just yesterday news broke that the pair are expecting their first children – twins – this June.
An unverified source, who is reportedly a friend of the family, anonymously told AFP that the couple are expecting.
Amal previously faced pregnancy rumours when she stepped out in a baggy dress which appeared to be covering a slight “bump”.
The human rights lawyer was wearing a floaty gold two piece, where the slight curve of her stomach could be seen.

“Amal is pregnant with twins: a boy and a girl,” a source told Touch.
“When George and Amal found out it was twins they were surprised, but also a little scared because they both had said one was enough.
“But the news that it was a boy and a girl made the them both really happy. They feel like they’ve hit the family jackpot.”
