And, Roberts, a frequent co-star of Clooney’s, has twins of her own – so she was able to offer some very real insights to her good friend. Roberts said when she thinks about her kids, she is surprised at how fast they grow up. The actress appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and gave her best advice for the parents-to-be.
“It’s going to be so fun”.
As DeGeneres and Roberts sat down to chat about Clooney, the actress revealed that Clooney and his wife, Amal, won’t need advice because they are an wonderful couple and no one is actually there with you at 3 AM when you’re up with the newborns.
“Nobody’s there with you at 3 o’clock in the morning when you’re just going, ‘What are we doing?” But while 12-year-old Hazel and Phinn are technically twins, Roberts said they’re actually so different.
The Money Monster star shares that she never calls her two older children “the twins” – “they seem like stranger kids” when she hears them referred to in that way.
“You get through it and you figure it out, everybody does”. “Everybody does, and it’s a trial and error and a whole lot of tears”.
News broke in April that Amal is pregnant and expecting twins in June.
Roberts, 49, didn’t reveal what the tips were, but she did pay Clooney and his wife, Amal Clooney, a compliment. “Only when we’re at their house, I see [Amal’s] influence”.
Roberts will next star in an adaptation of the R.J. Palacio novel “Wonder“.
