"We went to that thing at 12 weeks where they go, there's the kid," the ER alum recalled of the ultrasound. "And [the doctor] goes, 'It's a boy.' Then he goes, 'And a girl.' And I was like, 'What?'"

"It was such a disaster. I was like, 'Are you kidding me?'" the actor continued. "I was terrified. I was 56 years old and that just sounded terrifying to me."

"My guess is that they're a little smarter than me, so, they'll probably do something [different] — they already speak three languages, so, I'm still working on English."

The movie star has previously discussed the fact that their tots are pretty fluent in Italian even though he and Amal don't have a strong grasp on the language. "We don't speak Italian, so we've armed them with a language they can harm us with," quipped the Oscar winner. "And we both don't really know what they're saying"
