George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin are having twins and their friend Matt Damon is worried about how the 55-year-old star is going to handle the ‘sleepless nights’ that his only-too-immediate future holds. “(George) said to me, ‘Well, you have four.’ And I said, ‘Yeah, but not at once!’ We did it one at a time. I don’t know how anybody does twins. Those sleepless nights… and there’s two of them? There’s just no way,” Matt, 46, told Ellen DeGeneres in an appearance on her show. Matt Damon and wife Luciana Barroso, who married in 2005, have four daughters.
Speaking on The Ellen Show, Matt Damon also said it was “pretty funny” that all George Clooney’s friends have children who are in or on their way to college while he’s just starting out.
