The dad jokes might need a little work before the arrival of the Clooney twins.

Over the weekend, George Clooney skipped the Aurora Prize for Awakening Humanity ceremony in Yerevan, Armenia and submitted a video message to apologize.

“I really would have been [in Yerevan] but if I came there and my wife had twins while I was there, I could never come home,” he said, according to PEOPLE. The twins are reportedly due in June.

“It will be one of each! Yes, a boy and a girl. That’s what I’ve been told,” Nina Clooney, told Vogue at the time. “How marvelous! My husband and I are extremely excited.”
