Apparently Julie Chen has an in with the stork, because she reported on Thursday’s episode of The Talk that George and Amal Clooney are expecting twins.

While there have been rumors recently that the powerhouse human rights attorney was pregnant, Chen “confirmed” the reports on the CBS gabfest. “Beyoncé is not the only superstar expecting twins. 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,” she said.

She added, “What we did find out, that no one is reporting, is that the twins are due this June.”

Chen didn’t reveal her source, and a rep for Clooney has not yet responded to Yahoo’s request for comment.

During his bachelor days, Clooney — who was then a divorcé — famously said he would never have kids. He even won a bet against Nicole Kidman and Michelle Pfeiffer, who predicted he would be a dad by 40. (When they paid up, he returned the check with a note that said, “Double or nothing for another 10 years.”) Since he married Amal in 2014, there have been almost nonstop rumors that they were starting a family.

Clooney has been asked about children since tying the knot, but the smooth talker typically played coy. He told Charlie Rose in 2015, “I haven’t really [thought about it]. I’ve thought about it, I suppose, but I haven’t really — it hasn’t been high on my list.”

We assume it is now!
