Amal Clooney is mastering motherhood – and her twins are starting to grasp their first words.

The human rights lawyer, 40, gave Vogue a glimpse into her new life as a parent to twins Alexander and Ella – born in June 2017 – for the magazine’s May cover story.

Amal, who speaks three languages, revealed that the babies have said their first words, with husband George Clooney adorably prompting their kickoff into English.

“We’ve had some ‘Mamas’ and ‘Dadas,’ ” Amal shared. “George was very careful to ensure that ‘Mama’ was the first word.”

Amal told Vogue that mornings are for the family, with the babies spending “quality time” in their parents’ bed for a couple hours. Despite her busy career, she makes sure not to schedule any calls until after 8 a.m.

Although she remarked that her son is “quite a healthy eater,” breastfeeding twins proved to be challenging.

“When I was nursing, it was much more complicated, because there are two,” she explained. “I had all manner of weird cushions and pillows and machines.”

As for looks, Alexander has taken after his dad – despite George’s hesitation to admit it – while Ella resembles her mom.

“My daughter looks exactly like Amal,” the 56-year-old actor told PEOPLE at the Toronto International Film Festival in September. “She has big beautiful eyes … It’s incredible.”

Amal and George carved out some couple time this week in New York City, where the attorney is currently teaching at Columbia University. They stepped out for a romantic dinner date last Thursday, followed by another parents-only outing on Friday.

Also in the interview, Amal opens up about her impressive career and how she and her actor husband first met. She also gets candid about the lengths the couple have to go to for a semblance of privacy.

“We definitely do more things in our home to ensure privacy in a context where we can’t otherwise get it,” Amal told the magazine. “But that whole side — invasions of privacy and paparazzi, all of that — has happened because of something so happy and so important in my life.”
