George and Amal Clooney split their time between LA, England and Como, Italy in normal times. For the better part of a year and a half during the pandemic, they were based in LA, at George’s old bachelor pad which has been converted to more of a family home. They did spend this summer in Como once travel restrictions were lifted, and I’m sure they enjoyed that. George has been pretty open about how he tries to spend two months in Italy every year, and now that he’s a husband and father, the Como mansion has become more family-friendly too. As it turns out, Alexander and Ella Clooney are picking up something very important in Italy: they’re now more fluent in Italian than their parents.

George and Amal Clooney have quite the conundrum on their hands! The 60-year-old actor recently shared a few of his 4-year-old twins’ latest milestones while speaking with E! News’ Daily Pop on Sunday at the Los Angeles premiere of The Tender Bar, which he directed.

Not only have the twins, Ella and Alexander, learned to swim, they’ve also become bilingual — there’s just one small problem.

“They speak fluent Italian, but Amal and I do not,” George said with a laugh. “That’s a flaw in our logic, right there.”

While they may not have gotten their language skills from their dad, they certainly are learning other valuable lessons from him. Also on Sunday, Amal joked with Entertainment Tonight that her husband is a “great” teacher.

“He’s mainly teaching pranks for the time being. But we’ll see if it develops,” the 43-year-old human rights lawyer explained. George replied, “Well, I think those can really pay off over time.”

He’s mentioned that the kids are learning Italian before, but I had no idea they were fluent at this point. Especially since this past summer was the first time they’ve been in Italy in two years! Where are they picking it up, if not from their parents? Maybe George and Amal have an Italian nanny for their bambinos? The twins are only four years old!! I think George is way overselling the “they’re fluent in Italian” thing. That being said, parents should absolutely introduce second and third languages to children at an early age. Little kids are sponges and it’s easier for them to pick up languages the younger they are. All that being said, I hope at least one of the kids has gotten Amal’s legal brain.
