New York: George and Amal Clooney's twins have arrived - one of the most anticipated births since Knox and Vivienne Jolie-Pitt were born in 2008. Beyonce and Jay Z, you're next.

The Clooneys welcomed a son and a daughter on Tuesday morning, announcing in a joint statement that daughter Ella, son Alexander and mother Amal were all "happy, healthy and doing fine."

 

"George is sedated and should recover in a few days," the statement said.
