F they may end up the warm-up act to this summers block-
buster. Beyonce also is expected to give birth to twins any day
now, turning motherhood into the biggest celebrity story of the
year despite the striking contrast in styles of the two women who
have become the focus of a baby-obsessed public.
Music superstar Beyonce, 35, has delighted in displaying her
belly in Instagram photos and stage performances, whereas Amal
Clooney, 39, made it clear during her pregnancy that she would
like fans to focus more on her work than her baby bump.
It is a marked change from Beyonces first pregnancy, with George and
now 5-year-old Blue Ivy, when the singer was so rarely pho- Amal Clooney

the Single Ladies star had faked her condition.
This time, Beyonce announced she was expecting twins a
year after her Lemonade album chronicled her response to wide-
spread reports of infidelity by husband Jay Z. What better sign
to show to the world that you and your husband are a unit than

McGill University in Montreal said of the news.
Amal, however, a top-flight humanitarian lawyer based in
London, shunned the limelight that comes from being the spouse
of the dashing Oceans Eleven actor, who in the past had de-
clared he did not want kids. Clooney having children is ex-
citing to many people because hes perceived as a guy who
took a while to settle down, and with an amazing woman who
is very interesting, said JD Heyman, deputy editor of a Hol-
Beyonce lywood entertainment magazine.
