Actor George and human rights lawyer Amal Clooney are expecting twins, it has been reported.

The news was broken by US daytime show The Talk, when host Julie Chen said the show had "confirmed" the rumours.

"Beyonce is not the only superstar expecting twins," Chen said.

"Congratulations are in order for George and Amal Clooney. The Talk has confirmed that the 55-year-old superstar and his highly accomplished 39-year-old attorney wife are expecting twins."

The couple, who married in Italy in 2014, are yet to comment publicly on the news.

Rumours that Amal was expecting have been circulating since a friend of the family made the claim to Lebanon's Daily Star in January.

Multiple births do seem to be somewhat of a Hollywood family planning trend this month.

Last week, Beyonce announced she and husband Jay Z were expecting two arrivals later this year.

Yesterday, after nearly a month of speculation, Madonna announced she had adopted four-year-old twin girls from Malawi.
