Congrats to George. I may not agree with his politics but he seems like a class act. But I'm with you Red, 56 is a bit late in the game for your FIRST kid. I suspect that Clooney will be a hands on father and he's about to be run ragged! No more quiet dinners at his favorite Italian villa. BTW, I like the grandpa role better at that age, spoil them and then give them back to their parents!

That's what I'm sayin...but let's face it, Clooney will have (or certainly can have) nannies and others to watch the kids. I just think of the time/ energy/ involved in raising little ones. Most of use our 20's-30's energy to raise kids. Clooney will be over 70 at their high school graduation!!

Kids are being raised by grandparents all over the country. It's one of the reasons there are so many little spoiled brats. I think he's likely to do better than most, though. He seems pretty level-headed.

A friend's dad died at 83 when he was 21. That part sucks, and there are likely to be things they can't share in because Clooney is old, but the kid won't be screamed at by an immature dad, or neglected by an immature dad. There's a +/- to every scenario.

You really have no idea. He may schlep his kids along on location to every movie he produces, pay for tutors, whatever. He may be little more than a sperm donor. He's got enough money that every conceivable option is open to his family.

Clooney is in the minor leagues when it comes to a celebrity having kids during the grandpa years, Steve Martin had his very first kid when he was 67 years old. Charlie Chaplin was 73 when his last kid was born.

I'm sure he'll have some hired help, but that doesn't mean he isn't raising the kid.

If Nick Clooney is George's role model George will do just fine. Nick is a real gentleman and was a great Dad.

Not likely. Despite all the Hollywood glitz, this is a man whose own father was a regular hands on Dad and a guy who worked regular blue collar jobs as a young man. He knows how to do it right and I am sure he will.

The ironic thing is that your life will suck far more than any man that's ever been married.

A 30 year old virgin questioning George Clooney's life choices. Priceless.

He used to be a role model for all bachelors, now he's just like everyone else. Sad.

Doesn't seem like you followed his example too much anyway. Instead of making millions and partying with super models in the south of France. You make five figures and memorize the 8th grade boy's volleyball lineup from your studio apartment.

The Donald had his youngest when he was 60. That seems to be the realistic upper limit, though.
