George and Amal have been married since 2014

"But we don't speak Italian," he added. "So, we've armed them with a language they can harm us with. And we both don't really know what they're saying."

The couple's children speak three languages

"I go, 'You know, I was Batman,' and he goes, 'Yeah, but not anymore,'" the actor said with a laugh, adding, "If only he knew how true that was!"

It comes after George revealed that his children can already speak three languages.

During his appearance at the Royal School of Film and Television Production Magnet in Los Angeles, the star was asked how he will feel if his kids follow him into the entertainment industry.

The couple are still head over heels

"They can do whatever they want," he told Entertainment Tonight. "My guess is that they're a little smarter than me, so, they'll probably do something - they already speak three languages, so, I'm still working on English."

George and Amal rarely speak about their children. Speaking in 2021, George said that he and his wife have chosen to keep Alexander and Ella out of the spotlight in order to not "put their lives in jeopardy".
