But don’t expect him to get much helpful advice from seasoned father and close pal Matt Damon — who admits that the idea of caring for two babies at once is pretty intimidating.
“I don’t know how anybody does twins,” Damon, 46, said during a Thursday appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. “Those sleepless nights, and then there’s two of them. Like, there’s just no way. But we’ll see what happens.”
“He said to me, ‘Well, you know, you have four.’ And I said, ‘Yeah, but not at once! Like, we did it one at a time!” Damon said.

Multiple sources confirmed the baby news to PEOPLE last week, with an insider saying that the couple is “very happy” about the boy/girl twins.
Damon told DeGeneres that Clooney’s circle of friends — many of whom are veteran parents — can’t resist cracking a few jokes about Clooney’s later introduction to fatherhood.
“All of his friends … their kids are either in college or on their way,” Damon says. “Now, George is getting started so it’s pretty funny.”
Damon has four children — Alexia, 18, Isabella, 10, Gia, 8, and Stella, 6 — with wife Luciana Barroso.
“Those kids are really lucky,” Damon said. “She’s spectacular … He’ll be great. He’s so smart, he’s so loving. He’s going to be great.”
