How Having Kids Changed George Clooney s Life Perspective - Showbiz Cheat Sheet
For two decades following his 1993 divorce from Talia Balsam, George Clooney was always on the list of Hollywood’s most eligible bachelors .

As the interview continued, one of Clooney’s children, Alexander, came and sat on his father’s lap. Clooney’s dad instincts quickly kicked in, as the actor noted his son had chocolate on his face. He went on to tease him, arguing that he must be “15 years old.” Clooney explained that he used to be the guy who would hear a kid crying and get agitated; now, he is the guy with the kid crying.
