He's a proud father to four beautiful children, and in a new interview Matt Damon has given his verdict on what kind of dad close friend George Clooney will be when his wife Amal gives birth to twins later this year. Speaking at CinemaCon in Las Vegas on Tuesday, the 46-year-old predicted that the father-to-be will be a "mess". He told Entertainment Tonight: "He'll be great, he'll be a mess," adding that George's wife "will take care of everything." The Oscar-winning star continued: "He's going to get prepared. He better figure it out, because they're on the way."

Earlier this year, Matt - who is married to Luciana Barroso - revealed he was among the first to know about Amal's pregnancy. Recalling the moment George shared the happy news with him, the star told Entertainment Tonight: "I was working with him last fall and he pulled me aside on set and I mean, I almost started crying. I was so happy for him. And I was like, 'how far along is she?' And he goes, 'eight weeks.'"

George recently gave fans an update on his partner's pregnancy progress, sharing that things are going smoothly at this stage. "She is doing really great, she is amazing," he told Extra. "I don't have anything to do. There is nothing I can do to help, but make tea and stuff." Earlier this year, the couple confirmed they are expecting twins - the first children for the American star and international human rights lawyer Amal. Feeling confident about becoming a father, the 55-year-old actor added: "I know swaddling. I know what I'm in for." George also joked that Amal, 39, has already vetoed two names. "My wife says I can't name them Casa and Amigos. That's the one thing I'm not allowed to do," he revealed to ET, in reference to his Casamigos tequila brand which he shares with close friend Rande Gerber.
