George Clooney has given his first public comments on the subject of his impending fatherhood. "We are really happy and really excited. It's going to be an adventure," he said during an interview on the French program Rencontres de Cinema, per People. "We've sort of embraced it all … with arms wide open." He notes that French actor Jean-Paul Belmondo, currently 89, had a child at age 70, "so I'm feeling a little better about being 56 by the time" the twins he's expecting with wife Amal Clooney arrive.
