George Clooney is under pressure to start a family with new wife Amal Alamuddin
George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin have only been married a few days but already the couple’s under pressure to start a family.
And it’s the human rights lawyer’s dad who is egging the glamorous duo on to reproduce.
Apparently Ramzi Alamuddin took the opportunity to tell his daughter and new son-in-law that he wanted to see little ones running around pretty sharpish… during his wedding speech at the reception on Saturday night.
We can imagine there were cringey faces on 53-year-old George and his 36-year-old spouse as he declared ‘Now it’s time for grandchildren’.
He might want to refer back to the Gravity actor’s 2006 interview with People magazine where he seemed reluctant to having kids as he claimed it’s ‘the most responsible thing you can do’.
George is proving to be rather ‘responsible’ lately though as he’s even changed his mind on the notion of getting hitched.
He previously shared that marriage wasn’t for him after his divorce from first wife Talia Balsam but now claimed being a hubby ‘feels pretty great’. So perhaps he’ll loosen up and take the plunge with starting a family too.
Maybe the pair will conceive during their honeymoon, which is rumoured to be in Marrekech, Morocco.
It looks like children will have to be a little way into their future anyway as Amal certainly isn’t looking as though she’s concealing a pregnancy at the moment. The brunette beauty showed off her slimline figure in a number of striking ensembles as she traipsed around Venice on the weekend of her nuptials.
Amal’s mother Baria told People: ‘George and Amal radiated love all night. The wedding was so unbelievably special, it was legendary. These three days – the friends, the families, the atmosphere, everything – will stay with me all the rest of my life.’
And if she needs a reminder of the day after all she can always take a look at the goodie bag guests were given. Inside was a picture and a note reading: ‘We’re both so glad you’re here. You’ve come a long way so we’ll make it worth the trip. Thanks for being here. It means the world to us.’
