George and Amal Clooney have had a pretty full-on year. Not only did George sell his tequila company for a very tidy one billion dollars, but the couple became parents for the first time.

Amal gave birth to twins, Alexander and Ella, in June and the Clooneys have spent the last few months getting to grips with parenthood. George got very real about fatherhood, and they are even rumoured to have installed James Bond worthy security in their homes to protect their little ones.

In a recent interview, George opened up about the twins' personalities, telling Entertainment Tonight: 'They start out with a personality right off the bat.

'[Alexander] is a thug already… He’s a moose! Literally, he just sits and he eats. She’s very elegant, and all eyes. She looks like Amal – thank god.'

But despite being thrilled new parents, the couple have close to confirmed that they won't be having any more children.

When asked about plans to extend their family, Amal told The Hollywood Reporter: 'I'm 39. I already had them quite late.'

While it's a completely personal decision and nothing to do with anyone else, the news seems to have sent shock waves across the world with the general response to the interview being something along the lines of: 'What! No more Clooney babies! This is an outrage!'

As shocking as it is that George and Amal have decided not to commit to numerous kids to appease celebrity-baby-hungry fans, if they're happy with the two beautiful babies they already have then good for them.
