George Clooney and his wife Amal are expecting twins, actor Matt Damon said on Thursday, adding he was so thrilled for the high-profile couple that he “almost started crying” when he found out last fall.

Damon told Entertainment Tonight Canada that Clooney, 55, told him the news while they were filming a movie, and that his wife Amal Clooney, 39, was about eight weeks pregnant at the time.

While the news itself was met warmly after months of speculation and rumour, Twitter (and Instagram) had a great time poking fun at the Clooneys.

Here are some of the best reactions we found:

It's twins for George and Amal! I thought I noticed a baby bump. Congrats, you two!
