Clooney dismisses rumours about girl and boy twins

George Clooney trashed rumours that he and his wife Amal are expecting girl and boy twins in June.

"We ourselves don't know (the twins' gender) yet and don't want to know," he told French outlet Paris Match in an interview.

They are, however, "a bit nervous" about becoming parents, he said. "We decided to be much more responsible, to avoid the danger," he said. "I won't go to South Sudan any more or the Congo, Amal will no longer go to Iraq and she'll avoid places where she knows she isn't welcome."
