Once upon a time not too long ago, George Clooney held the title for Hollywood's most eligible bachelor after swearing off marriage following his divorce from actress Talia Balsam.
However in 2013, a raven-haired beauty with brains came into his life and forced him to give up the title in pursuit of that forever-kind-of-love. Soon after, the leading man became engaged to human rights lawyer Amal Alamuddin and the couple tied the knot on September 27, 2014.
Three years after the lavish nuptials, the power couple announced in February that they were expecting a set of twins. It was reported early on that both Amal and George plan to be hands-on parents and they did not waste time baby-proofing their mansions in the U.K, Italy and U.S.
"You'd think that twins would be overwhelming for anyone but they seem to have taken to this like ducks to water, all in their stride," the source said. "They're both attentive, warm, loving parents. You could see that even in the run up to having the kids...even months ago, in the way George would fuss and fret over making sure security at the house was safe and the nursery was perfect."
According to The Sun, the couple revamped their four acre home in Sonning, Berks to accommodate their babies. They added a fence, CCTV cameras, nanny-living quarters and an editing suite so George can work from home while dotting on his newborn children.
It might all sound very fancy, but perhaps the nanny quarters was a bit of a stretch. It was later reported by E! News that the couple wasn't planning on hiring a live-in or full-time nanny. They've opted for a short-term nurse instead, to help set a sleeping schedule for the twins so the new parents can experience an easier transition.
It seems like the nurse has been doing a great job because based on the newly-released photos of the couple out on their first date night since welcoming Ella and Alexander, parenthood has been treating them well.

About a month after their birth in London, George, 56, and Amal, 39, took the twins on their first trip abroad. The family flew to Italy via private plane to spend time at George's beloved Lake Como estate.
"Amal and George are even planning a welcome party for the twins on their third wedding anniversary, when they will also be renewing their vows in front of close family and friends," revealed a source close to the couple.
The A-list couple took advantage of the scenery change by going on their first outing since the twins arrival. The pair were spotted exiting il Gatto Nero, one of their favorite Northern Italy eateries after a romantic dinner date with another couple.
Amal was definitely showing off her new mom glow in a chic, flowery one shoulder dress paired with her signature red lip while proud dad George donned a casual grey shirt that complimented his silver hair.
"Everyone was so excited to see him and Amal for dinner," a source told People. "They got many hugs and a lot of love. Amal looked gorgeous and didn't look the slightest bit tired. She kept smiling and looked so happy."
“You could tell they were happy about the date night,” the source added. “In the past, they always dined for hours. This time, it was obvious they didn’t want to be out too late.”
The twins have not been introduced to the public yet, but we're sure the proud parents will do so when the time is right. It's certainly not easy being a regular parent so we can only imagine trying to be one while everyone has eyes on your every move.
