The husband and wife team are also proud parents to twins Ella and Alexander, 2, and have focused on giving their children as grounded a childhood as possible.

That means managing their high-profile careers, philanthropic endeavors and busy work schedules. Amal spoke at the United Nations’ General Assembly on Tuesday, while George is preparing to shoot his upcoming Netflix film, Good Morning, Midnight.

“They really try to take turns so one parent is always with the kids,” the source said.

And when George and Amal aren’t working, they’re spending time together with their family at their homes in England, the U.S., and Italy where they spent the summer at their villa in Laglio.

“Their Lake Como villa is spectacular, and George and Amal look forward to spending the summer there every year,” the source says. “It’s a wonderful place for the whole family.”
