Don Cheadle Jokes George Clooney Will Be a ‘Terrible Parent,’ Says He’ll Have to Raise the Twins

Friendly advice! Don Cheadle has opened up about George Clooney and wife Amal, who are expecting twins, and he’s already poking fun at his pal.

The 52-year-old was attending the Universal Music Group’s 2017 Grammys afterparty in Los Angeles on Sunday, February 12, when he joked with reporters about the news of Clooney’s pending fatherhood.

“I heard it some time ago. I’m very happy for him,” he said, according to People, before adding. “I’m going to have to raise them.”

“He’s going to be a terrible parent, and we’re going to have to handle that for him. We’re going to take the kids.”

Cheadle, who has two daughters, Imani and Ayana, with his longtime partner, Bridgid Coulter, continued to mock his Ocean costar’s ability to bring up two children and said: “As soon as the kids come out, send them to us or they’re going to be ruined.”

But in all seriousness Cheadle said he’d managed to keep the news to himself because the pair “keep each other’s secrets.”

Clooney’s friends and family have gushed about what a fantastic father he will be ever since it was confirmed, on February 9, that he was expecting a baby with his human-right’s attorney wife.

Matt Damon raved about how “awesome” Clooney will be telling ET Canada that his pals will be “great” parents.

Clooney’s mother, Nina Clooney, also told Us Weekly that her son will be a brilliant dad.

“We are extremely happy for George and Amal, and I cannot imagine two people who would be better parents,” she told Us. “I think he’ll be great, and I think she’ll be a great mom!”
