Congratulations to George and Amal Clooney, who are expecting twins! PEOPLE confirmed the news today, with a source close to the actor and his wife stating  has let everyone in both families know quietly. They’re all very happy.”

The couple was first engaged in April 2014 and got married in September 2014 in Venice, Italy in front of their celebrity friends. The twins will mark the first children for both George and Amal. The Talk host Julie Chen reported on the show the kids are due in June. But we do have to wonder: is there something in the water in Hollywood? Last week, Beyoncé announced that her and husband Jay Z were also expecting two babies.

“All I know is that it sort of changed everything in terms of what I thought my future—my future personal future—was going to be,” George told PEOPLE about marrying Amal in 2015. “I’ve always been an optimist about the world. I wasn’t always completely optimistic about how it was going to work out personally for me. But now I am.”
