Causally confirming her pregnancy to a friend over dinner this week, Amal, 39 and George, 55 are expecting twins later this year.

We have been blessed two times over. We are incredibly grateful that our family will be growing by two, and we thank you for your well wishes. - The Carters."

I am deeply grateful to all those in Malawi who helped make this possible, and I ask the media please to respect our privacy during this transitional time."
