George and Amal Clooney may have been in talks to become Baby Sussex’s godparents, but it doesn’t mean the actor is pleased to admit his twins have British accents! The Catch-22 actor revealed on the Ellen DeGeneres Show that Ella and Alexander are taking after their mom in more ways than one. Scroll to see the clip!
Ellen DeGeneres asked George, 58, if his kids had any sort of mixed accent because the couple splits there time between the U.S., England, and Italy. The American actor prefaced, “My wife is very, very English — very British.”
He then revealed, “The other day I caught my son … my son said ‘zeb-ra.’” The Ocean’s 11 actor joked, “I’ve got to fix that. That’s not going to happen.”
George admitted the twins tend to act more like Amal, 41. He told Ellen, 61, “The scary part is they obviously got my wife’s brains. They’re not quite two and they can count from one to 20 in English and Italian. I’m still trying to do the English part!” Ella and Alexander will be turning two-years-old on June 6.
The father-of-two teased, “They’re very smart. I don’t like that either. I got a lot of dumb relatives, man. Awful easy!”
Although Ella and Alexander both share the same accent and intelligence, George revealed that’s where the similarities end. Of his son, he said, “He goes outside, and he hugs my car. He shouts ‘Car!’ and he hugs it.” He joked, “Which is bad when I’m driving. It’s really not good. He gets right in the wheel well.”
According to George, his daughter is picking up the human right’s lawyer’s sense of fashion. “My daughter is up in my wife’s closet with purses going, ‘Mine!’ So I see this is going to be a fun, fun life for me,” he told the comedian.
