George Clooney is passing down his practical jokes.
George’s wife, Amal Clooney, recently joked how her husband spent most of quarantine teaching pranks to their four-year-old twins, daughter Ella and son Alexander.
“You just feel so bad for the world and all of that, you know? But our kids are four and they were two-and-a-half when it started so you know, they weren’t missing out on much out in the world,” George informed Entertainment Tonight.
“So, you know, I didn’t have to teach them trigonometry at home.”
Amal , 43, jumped in, admitting: “He’s mainly teaching pranks for the time being. But we’ll see if it develops.”
George replied, “Well, I think those can really pay off over time.”
But teasing aside, Amal called her hubby a “great teacher” and gushed about how “lucky” she was to have a “supportive partner.”
“It’s probably like many families where both parents work,” she said of the balancing act. “I’m lucky because I have a very supportive partner. And we do move around a lot, but we manage it, and I feel very lucky.”
In July, a source informed PEOPLE how the Clooneys discovered additional family time due to the pandemic as they returned to their home in Lake Como, Italy after two years away.
“George and Amal took every day as it came. They have always prioritized family time, so they were very positive about all the extra time with the kids,” the source said. “They are the most amazing parents.”
The source added, “George is such a fun dad. The kids adore him.”
In a March interview on NBC News’ Today and Today with Hoda & Jenna, George revealed how his “whole job” is to teach his twins “terrible things.”
“I really do enjoy teaching my children to do things that shock their mother,” George said, before revealing that Ella had recently joined Alexander in pulling pranks around the house.
“My daughter has now picked up the mantle,” the father to two admitted. “She used to think it was really gross, all the things we did, but then she saw how many laughs Alexander got and now she’s taken it up, too.”
