The newlyweds reportedly conceived their first child “during their romantic honeymoon in Seychelles”.
“This has been such a whirlwind for Amal,” a source tells Star Magazine. “Everything is happening so fast, but she is so thrilled about all of it!”
“Having a baby with Amal is the best thing that’s ever happened to [George],” continues the source. “He honestly can’t wait to be a dad.”
The couple only just started telling friends the good news and Amal has reportedly started planning what to do with the nursery. “George has given her carte blanche to spend however much she wants on whatever she wants.”
“They just can’t wait to be parents,” the insider adds. “It’s the best wedding present ever.”
A rep for the couple denied that Amal is pregnant on December 9, saying “Amal Clooney is not pregnant”. However, some people think Amal has been hiding a baby bump, and perhaps she’s too early in her pregnancy to confirm anything yet.
Previously, National Enquirer (owned by the same company as Star Magazine), claimed the couple fought over whether to and when to have children. “The baby topic has caused a lot of tension between the two,” claimed the Enquirer in early December. “George feels like he’s a victim of a bait and switch.”
They planned to eventually have their own child and also adopt. “But Amal feels overwhelmed,” added the source. “She’d like a year to adjust to her marriage and newfound fame before dealing with a pregnancy or the red tape of a complicated international adoption.”
