George and Amal Clooney 'love' parenthood

George and Amal Clooney "love being parents".

The 56-year-old actor and his human rights lawyer wife - who tied the knot in 2014 - welcomed twins Ella and Alexander into the world last month, and whilst they are "very busy" with the two new arrivals, they are said to be loving every minute of their journey into parenthood.

A source said: "George and Amal are very hands-on. The babies keep them very busy, but they both seem to love being parents."

The couple are currently enjoying a getaway at their villa in Lake Como, Italy, with their new brood, and are believed to be "very happy" and "enjoying the summer".

The insider added to People magazine: "The weather has been fantastic -- sunny and warm every day. George and Amal are enjoying the summer with their babies. Both seem very happy."

Meanwhile, it was previously claimed that George and Amal, 39, are "happier than ever" since becoming parents.

An insider said: "Everything is going great with the babies. [George and Amal] are happier than they have ever been and really enjoying being parents ... They are truly in love and just want to be with the babies and not do much else.

"Amal's mother helps out a lot and can't get enough [of the babies]. If she doesn't see them for a few days, she is dying to come back.

"They have had a lot of friends visit and Amal's family is often around. There is always someone who can give a helping hand. That's given George and Amal an opportunity to be together and have some one-on-one time, too."

And their close pal Kathy Lette recently insisted the pair were "above cloud nine".

She said: "Well look they're in planet parent now, we probably won't see them for a year but they did email us the day they were born. They are so happy, they are so far above cloud nine, they're waving to the Mir space station. Love in stereo, what could be better?"
