Matt Damon Couldn't Give Dad-to-Be George Clooney Much Parenting Advice: 'I Don't Know How Anybody Does Twins'
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.”
The 46-year-old father of four recalls a conversation he had with the 55-year-old “excited but nervous” father-to-be.
“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.”
