Actor George Clooney recently said that his twins like to laugh a lot, something which often leads to toddler-sized hijinx.

The 58-year-old actor stopped by the Today show — along with fellow actors Christopher Abbott and Kyle Chandler — to talk about their new miniseries, Catch-22. During his remarks on Today, Clooney said that his twins, Ella and Alexander, are quite the tricksters, per Entertainment Tonight.

“They’re not terrible twos. They’re good kids. They’re happy kids. They laugh a lot. They do pranks already,” he said.

“Put peanut butter on their shoes so that it looks like poo-poo on their shoes and stuff, and they think that’s funny… They really come out with the personalities that they’re born with,” Clooney remarked, expounding on how talented they are.

“They’re just completely different personalities and they’re fun and smart, and, I mean, they already can — you know, do all their ABCs in Italian and in English and I can’t do that in English.”

Clooney also said that his wife, Amal — who gave birth to the twins in June of 2017 — was staying busy. She is reportedly working on human rights cases, including taking ISIS to court and working on freeing the Reuters journalists who were imprisoned in Myanmar. Those journalists were freed on Tuesday, The Guardian reported.

The Ocean’s Eleven star said that his wife was an incredible mom and a great wife, a combination which made him feel like he had hit the jackpot.

And it seems as though she feels the same way about him. In June of last year, Amal, 40, gushed over her husband when he was presented with an AFI Lifetime Achievement Award. She called the actor a gentleman in every sense of the word, and a man who was generous with his time. She also said that he was the person who had her complete admiration, Us Weekly reported.

She also said that until she met him — when she was 35 — she was resigned to the idea of being a spinster. She explained that, with him, she had found the love that she had always hoped existed. She then said that seeing him with their children was the greatest joy in her life.

The twins may get their sense of humor from their dad, who jokingly quipped that they had gotten drunk on their first birthday. According to Us Weekly, Clooney kidded that when he got home, he discovered that they had a bottle of booze.

Catch-22 is slated to become available on Hulu on May 17. The series is a dark comedy based on Joseph Heller’s novel of the same name.
