It feels like we've been waiting ages for our favourite A-listers to give birth. We've been eagerly waiting for a heads up that Beyoncé has gone into labour with her twins, and it feels like we've been waiting forever for Margot Robbie to confirm or deny those pregnancy rumours.

But one couple that might be beating the celebrity baby rush is George and Amal Clooney.

They announced that they were expecting twins back in Februrary, and their due date was estimated to be around June. George has been gushing about becoming a father for the first time, and his mum even revealed the sex of the babies.

So when George cancelled an event over the weekend the internet went into overdrive with rumours that Amal was in hospital and about to give birth to their two babies imminently.

George was due to attend the Aurora Price For Awakening Humanity event in Armenia but decided to put off travelling, sparking speculation that Amal was in labour.

He addressed the rumours in a video message, telling fans: 'I really would have been [in Yerevan] but if I came there and my wife had twins while I was there, I could never come home.'

Reports suggest that the couple are currently situated in their Berkshire home awaiting the arrival of their little ones, with an insider having previously said: 'George is getting a little anxious about the babies' arrival. But he's nervous in an excited, good way!

'George is staying put in London until Amal gives birth. They'll figure out their schedules after that. For now, they're just hunkering down.'

How exciting!
