Brad Pitt has reportedly met George Clooney and his wife Amal, carrying special gifts for the twins of the new parents. The celebrity couple welcomed their children together on 6 June.

According to HollywoodLife, the War Machine star met the couple in London with some special gifts for George and Amal's children including the same type of African doll the Oscar-winning producer's daughter Zahara had as a child.

"Uncle Brad swung through London to see George and Amal and to meet their new babies during his time in Europe," a source told the celebrity gossip website. "Brad even brought gifts for the little ones."

"Brad bought the kids new matching toy dolls from Africa," the source said. "Zahara [Jolie-Pitt, 12] fell in love with the same type of toy doll when she was a baby, and Brad wanted to help recreate the same fond memories with George and his new children."

Pitt, the former husband of Angelina Jolie, also reportedly gave George some advice on being a father. Pitt and Jolie split in September 2016.

"Brad even shared some fatherly advice with George on how to prevent diaper rash, which Amal thought was hilarious," the source said to HollywoodLife.

George loves being a father as the new role has taught him "the absolute joy and wonder of unconditional love". He is so fond of his son and daughter that he is willing to give his life for them.

"Obviously, he's loved, and continues to love, many people in his life — with Amal being his greatest love, and his soulmate. But the twins' birth has taken it to a whole new level," another source said.

"George would seriously lay down his life in a heartbeat for Alexander and Ella, and even now, when he looks at them snuggled up, he is overcome with emotion and brought to the verge of tears."
