Amal Clooney and her husband George have created "stunningly beautiful babies" according to Amal's mother, Baria Alamuddin.

The couple, who married in Venice in 2014, welcomed a little girl called Ella and a bouncing baby boy called Alexander into the world on Tuesday, and now their grandmother has gushed over their precious new arrivals.

Speaking to People magazine, the twins' proud grandmother revealed the first moment she laid eyes on the little ones.

"Seeing these two angels, these stunningly beautiful babies cuddled together...

"And seeing the joy on Amal and George’s faces, it’s one of those deeply felt beautiful feelings you can’t express in words."

Shortly after the twins' arrival a representative for the couple said that mum and children were healthy and happy and the family are overjoyed.

"This morning Amal and George welcomed Ella and Alexander Clooney into their lives," the Clooneys’ representative told Page Six in a statement.

Their spokesperson jokingly added of the first-time father, "George is sedated and should recover in a few days."

The couple tied the knot in an intimate ceremony at the Aman Canal Grande luxury resort in Venice, Italy in 2014. They were married by Clooney's friend Walter Veltroni, the former mayor of Rome.
