All to protect the twins

Words by Jadie Troy-Pryde

George and Amal Clooney annouced the birth of their twins, the sweetly named Alexander and Ella, back in June. Since their arrival, the babies have already jetted off on a luxurious holiday to Italy for some much needed r&r and George and Amal are said to be renewing their wedding vows at their beautiful Lake Como holiday home. On top of that, George's tequila business sold for a cool $1 billion so it's fair to say the Clooneys have had a very busy few months.

However, the new parents have not been too busy to ensure that their newborns are protected with some extremely tight security. According to a new report, George and Amal have invested in an increased security team, complete with a 24/7 guard service surrounding their LA, UK and Italian homes.

But it doesn't stop there. The Clooneys are determined to keep their children safe, and have reportedly added video surveillance, bulletproof walls, panic rooms and basement bunkers to make sure that Alexander and Ella are kept away from danger.

An insider told Grazia: 'Amal is already concerned for their safety, which has only got worse since the birth of their children. The latest incident has really galvanised her and George.

'They are hell-bent on doing whatever it takes to protect the twins and they’ve told their security advisors that money is not an issue when it comes to ensuring their safety.'

The news comes shortly after pictures of the tiny tots were published in French magazine Voici. Photographers reportedly scaled a fence to illegally take the snaps, and George threatened to take legal action.

Talking of the incident, he said: 'Make no mistake: the photographers, the agency and the magazine will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. The safety of our children demands it.'

By the sounds of it, not even James Bond himself would be able to get anywhere near them.
