Amal Clooney throws George a surprise birthday party


Amal Clooney orchestrated this week a surprise 56th birthday party for her husband George, in the presence of their close friends.

The ingenious Lebanese wife of George Clooney asked their friends, Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber, to help her pull it off. “Amal made it a joint birthday celebration,” an insider revealed to E!, “since Rande’s birthday was just a couple of weeks ago.”

When he arrived at the couple’s London home on Saturday, George was greeted by Rande Gerber atop his lawnmower—while Cindy Crawford trimmed fresh flowers in a nearby garden. They were joined by a group of close friends all there to surprise George.

Both Cindy and Rande shared photos from the celebration via Instagram, but Amal—who’s been keeping a low profile—did not appear in any of them. As the insider explained, “Technically her due date is next month, but they expect the twins to come early. It’s just a waiting game now.”

The cake, which followed the theme of Casamigos Tequila (George’s company with Gerber) featured George and Rande cake-toppers. ”Happy Birthday Amigos,” it read.
