Amal Clooney Children: Meet Alexander Clooney, Ella Clooney
Amal Clooney born on 3 February 1978 is a Lebanese-British barrister at Doughty Street Chambers, specialising in international law and human rights.
Her clients include Nobel Prize laureate Maria Ressa; a former President of the Maldives, Mohamed Nasheed; Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks, in his fight against extradition; a former Prime Minister of Ukraine, Yulia Tymoshenko; Egyptian-Canadian journalist Mohamed Fahmy; and Nobel Prize laureate Nadia Murad.
She is the co-founder of the Clooney Foundation for Justice with her husband, George Clooney.
Amal Alamuddin Clooney was born in Beirut, Lebanon. Her first name is from أمل, ʾamal in Arabic, meaning “hope”.
Her family left Lebanon when she was two years old, during the Lebanese Civil War, and settled in Gerrards Cross, Buckinghamshire. Her father Ramzi Alamuddin, a Lebanese Druze from the Alam al-Din dynasty village of Baakline in the Chouf District, received his MBA degree at the American University of Beirut.
He returned to Lebanon in 1991 after the end of the Lebanese Civil War. Her mother, Bariaa (née Miknass), is from a family of Sunni Muslims from Tripoli in Northern Lebanon, and is a political journalist and foreign editor of the Pan-Arab newspaper al-Hayat.
She is a founder of the public relations company International Communication Experts, which is part of a larger company that specialises in celebrity guest bookings, publicity photography, and event promotion.
Clooney has three siblings: one sister and two half-brothers from her father’s first marriage.
Who is Alexander Clooney?
Alexander was also born on June 6, 2017. While George described his little girl as having a sweet personality, he joked his son is the one with all the confidence. “[Alexander] is a thug already,” he laughed to ET. “He’s a moose! Literally, he just sits and he eats.”
Though it’s not common for George and Amal to put their kiddos on full display, the duo made a rare appearance with their children in August 2021. Spotted arriving at a lavish restaurant in Lake Como, Italy, the family of four looked happier than ever while spending some quality time during their outing.
Who is Ella Clooney?
Born on June 6, 2017, Ella is the daughter of George and Amal. At the time the twins were born, Amal’s spokesman confirmed the happy news. “This morning, Amal and George welcomed Ella and Alexander Clooney into their lives,” read the statement. “Ella, Alexander and Amal are all healthy, happy and doing fine.”
Because George and Amal are very private with their kids, they tend to keep Ella and her brother out of the spotlight. However, the actor once offered an idea of his daughter’s personality, revealing she takes after her mother. “She’s very elegant, and all eyes,” the Monuments Men actor gushed to Entertainment Tonight. “She looks like Amal, thank God.”
