George Clooney and Pregnant Amal Will Avoid Dangerous Travel: ‘We Decided to Be Much More Responsible’

Safety first! George Clooney and his pregnant wife, Amal Clooney, have vowed to be more “responsible” with their travel choices, now that they are set to become parents.

The couple are expecting twins in June, and the Monuments Men star insists it’s forced them to reconsider the countries they visit.

Speaking to Paris Match magazine, Clooney, 55, said, “We decided to be much more responsible, to avoid the danger. I won’t go to South Sudan anymore or the Congo; Amal will no longer go to Iraq, and she’ll avoid places where she knows she isn’t welcome.”

Amal’s job as a human-right’s attorney means she often visits dangerous territories for her clients.

She recently took on ISIS for Nadia Murad, a human trafficking survivor and admitted she’d discussed “the risks involved” with her husband  but forged forward regardless.

While the parents-to-be will curb risky travel, they still have plenty of safe options as to where to raise their babies.

Clooney opened up about the nomadic lifestyle they plan to live while their children are young.

“We have the chance to live between three countries: Italy, America and England,” he said of the places where they already have homes. “But as soon as the children go to school, it’ll be necessary to choose where to settle. In the meantime, we will continue to move according to our respective schedules.”

He added: “People think we are never together, but we have not been separated for more than a week.”
