Gender is a social construct, so it shouldn't really matter if someone pops out a boy or a girl because they popped out an individual and that's what counts.

Still, it can be fun to find out a baby's gender. It lets you imagine them as a real person instead of just a little blob of cells.

So that's why it's exciting to find out the genders of the world's #2 couple expecting twins, Amal and George Clooney (Bey and Jay are #1 according to my unofficial ranking of famous expectant couples, but it was a close race).

George's extremely eager mom spilled the beans in an interview with Radar, saying:

It will be one of each! Yes, a boy and a girl. That’s what I’ve been told. How marvelous! My husband and I are extremely excited.

A boy AND a girl?? What are the odds?? (One out of three)

George might be having a talk with his mom this week about keeping her damn mouth shut practicing discretion with regard to the press. Because she kind of ruined the gender(s) reveal.

But oh well! Confetti is bad for the environment anyway.

Congrats to the happy couple and their future babies, who are inevitably going to be adorable whether they were male, female or somewhere in between.
