Matt Damon Has Sweetest Reaction To George Clooney Twins News

"I almost started crying, I was so happy for him."

Matt Damon delivered his first public reaction Thursday to George Clooney and wife Amal expecting twins, telling “Today,” “Those kids are really lucky.”

But as a friend and sometimes costar for years, Damon privately heard the news from Clooney in the fall.

“I almost started crying, I was so happy for him,” Damon told “Entertainment Tonight Canada” in the clip below.

Damon said he advised Clooney to keep a lid on any disclosure until Amal reached the 12-week mark. “Four weeks later, I’m like, ‘We’re good right?’ “ Clooney answered, “We’re good.”

“They’re great people and they’re going to be great parents,” Damon said.
