George and Amal Clooney are not expecting their third child, their representative has confirmed.
Insiders had earlier claimed that the happy couple, who wed in 2014, had told their close friends that they were expanding their family when they threw a small dinner party near their Italian villa on July 4th.
However speaking on Friday, their representative shut down any speculation and said: ‘Stories saying that Amal Clooney is pregnant are not true.’
The statement comes after the duo were seen enjoying a family outing in Cernobbio, Italy, on Thursday, with George, 60, and Amal, 43, doting on twins Ella and Alexander, four, ahead of lunch and watching some ducks.

Amal looked sensational in a bright red dress which scooped at the front and showcased her sensational figure, with the beauty accessorising with a stylish sun hat.
Her hunky husband also cut a smart figure for the low-key lunch date at the Grand Hotel Villa D’Este donning a navy polo shirt and cream trousers.
George was seen carrying little Ella, with the proud father lifting her into the air and beaming a smile as they chatted in the Italian sunshine.
While Amal crouched down with Alexander, pointing to something in the distance as she wrapped a protective arm around her smartly-dressed little boy.
Doting parents! The couple were seen playing and chatting with their children, with the Hollywood star lifting little Ella into the air and smiling as they waited for the motorboat following lunch
After enjoying their meal and ahead of hopping back on the motorboat, the parents stopped to look at some ducks with the twins.
It comes amid reports on Friday, which have been denied by the couple, that Amal is pregnant with their third child.
Sparking speculation the Clooneys were adding another baby to their brood, a source had told OK! US: ‘Amal’s said to be past her first trimester. She’s already starting to show, so soon enough, everyone will know.’
The couple were spotted out with pals on July 20, where Amal sported a form-fitting white dress.

It was reported last month that George had whizzed his wife and their children to Lake Como ahead of the twins’ fourth birthday.
A source told E! News at the time that the family ‘haven’t been there in two years’ but they’ll be spending the summer at their family home, Villa Oleandra.
They added: ‘They brought along their giant St. Bernard puppy, Rosie. They will be spending as much of the summer as they can in Lake Como.’
In March, doting dad George spoke about how life changed when he became a father.

He said: ‘I don’t think anyone is ever going to say at the end of the day ‘God, I wish we’d done two more interesting films’ rather than ‘God, I’m really glad I spent this time with my kids or I did this with my kids.’
In December, he gave a rare into fatherhood as he spoke to AARP The Magazine about naming their twins and being a famous parent.
He said: ‘I didn’t want, like, weird-a*s names for our kids. They’re already going to have enough trouble. It’s hard being the son of somebody famous and successful…
‘It’s hard being the son of somebody famous and successful. Paul Newman’s son killed himself. Gregory Peck’s son killed himself….
‘Bing Crosby had two sons kill themselves. I have an advantage because I’m so much older that by the time my son would feel competitive, I’ll literally be gumming bread.’
He later spoke to CBS This Morning about how Amal and the kids changed his life.
George said: ‘There is no question that having Amal in my life changed everything for me. It was the first time that everything that she did and everything about her was infinitely more important than anything about me…
‘We never talked about having kids, and one day we said, ‘What do you think?’ And then we go to the doctor and you do the ultrasound and they’re like, ‘You got a baby boy!’ and I was like, ‘Baby boy, fantastic!’…
‘And they go, ‘And you got another one there.’ I was up for one. Again, I’m old. All of a sudden, it’s two. It’s hard to get me to not talk, and I just stood there for, like, 10 minutes just staring at this piece of paper going, ‘What? Two?’
He was later asked about why he ‘waited so long’ to become a father.

George said: ‘I found the right person to have them with,” he said. “There are some people, their goal was: ‘I have to have children.’ Mine wasn’t…
‘I wasn’t looking at life, going: ‘My life will be unfulfilled without children.’ I felt like I had a pretty full life. Then I met Amal and realised that my life had been pretty empty.
‘And then we throw these two kids in there and suddenly you realise how incredibly empty it was and, you know, it fills it all up. It makes it fun.’
He went on: ‘[Fatherhood] gives a sense of belonging, and a sense of home and the unconditional love, all the things that you were hoping you could get from a really good career and a dog. You realise that this is a lot more than that’.
