Amal, who is a renowned lawyer of human rights, gave birth to the twins in June 2017 and spoke about her schedule as a mother of two.

To ease the nursing process, Amal had to try using pillows, cushions and even machines.

Another question that was popped to her was about the looks of her children. Amal proudly answered that Alexander looked a lot like his father, although George has been hesitant to state the fact.

Over a year after the birth of the twins, the parents have resumed their work. Amal revealed that she continues to teach at Columbia University, and managed to catch some alone-time with her equally busy husband in New York City.

The duo still goes out on romantic dinner dates and outings, and Amal shared that they also enjoyed spending time at home to keep away from the paparazzi.
