Ella, Alexander and Amal are all healthy, happy and doing fine. George is sedated and should recover in a few days," publicist Stan Rosenfield said.

Amal Clooney has largely continued her work as a human rights lawyer, addressing the United Nations in March and urging the international community to investigate crimes committed by Islamic State in Syria and Iraq.Despite their silence, celebrity news media outlets have speculated for months about the sex of the twins, where they would be born and in which country they will be raised.
