George & Amal Clooney: Future Godparents to Meghan Markle’s Baby?!
As you’ve likely heard by now, Meghan Markle is pregnant with her first child.
Meghan, of course, is in the unique position of having climbed the ladder from basic cable D-lister to international icon in record time, so the eyes of the world are squarely on her growing baby bump.
Meghan has reached that level of fame at which people place bets on things like whether or not she’ll have twins and what the baby (or babies) will be named.
One mystery that’s attracted a lot of attention in recent weeks is the question of who Meghan and Harry will choose as the baby’s godparents.
Naturally, there’s been lots of speculation and a fair bit of wagering, with most concluding that the godparents will be celebrities.
Meghan hob-nobs with the global elite these days, so it’s widely assumed that she and Harry will choose some sort of public figures as the godparents.
And one couple has become the odds-on favorites to receive the honor.
Sources close to Duke and Duchess of Sussex say that while they haven’t made the selection official yet, Harry and Meghan have decided to ask George and Amal Clooney to do the honors.
“Amal and Meghan have been close for years, and Harry and George have become buddies because of that,” one insider tells the Daily Mail.
“They’re much closer than the headlines let on.”
While the offer hasn’t been extended yet, sources say George and Amal have heard the rumors and are looking forward to speaking with Harry and Meghan.
Apparently, George has even “told a couple of people he has a strong hunch.”
The Clooneys are parents of twins, and news that they’ll serve as godparents has bolstered rumors that Meghan is expecting twins as well.
In fact, that’s now considered such a strong possibility that the Irish bookmakers who have hosted the majority of the wagering on Meghan’s pregnancy have stopped accepting bets that she’ll have twins.
“An unprecedented amount of bets on Meghan and Harry to have twins has forced us to stop taking bets on the market altogether,” a spokesperson for Paddy Power told Us Weekly in a statement.
“Since the day began, the stream of bets has led us to believe that perhaps the punters — or an insider source — knows something more than we do.”
So if you can find a bookie who will let you bet that Meghan will have twins and the Clooneys will be the godparents, jump on that!
Why should Meghan and Harry be the only ones expecting joyous news?
