It was one of the most-anticipated celebrity births of the year, and George Clooney was determined that wife Amal was as comfortable as possible when she delivered their twins Ella and Alexander.
In the lead-up to their arrival yesterday (US time), Woman’s Day reported that the star splashed serious cash while locking down their birth plan.
“George is making it clear money is no object when it comes to his wife and much longed-for babies,” a source told the publication.
The insider spilled on the many expenses that the couple clocked up in preparation for the babies’ arrival.
George reportedly booked the entire Kensington wing of London’s Chelsea and Westminster hospital, which will cost up to $588,000 for a week’s stay.
Amal, 39, reportedly flew in two “birth companions” from LA which Woman’s Day estimates cost $30,000, and an Italian masseuse who charges $5,000.
And the couple can’t go hungry! George, 55, ensured they stayed satisfied by flying in his favourite Italian cook, Riccardo de Pra, to assist the hospital’s private chef with all their dining needs, the publication claims.
Riccardo comes with a cool $10,000 price tag.
On top of that, the mag reports that the couple have already selected a nanny for each baby at the cost of $400,000 per year.
Talk about a silver spoon experience!
