George Clooney revealed the news to Matt Damon last year

Matt, 46, tells ET Canada: ‘I was working with him last fall and he pulled me aside on set and I mean, I almost started crying. I was so happy for him. And I was like: “How far along is she?” And he goes: “Eight weeks.”

‘[I said]: “Are you out of your mind?! Don’t tell anybody else! Don’t tell anybody else! Don’t you know the 12-week rule?” Like of course he doesn’t.

‘”Just shut up, man.” And then four weeks later, I’m like: “We’re good right?”‘ he continued. George replied: “We’re good.”

Matt Damon is ‘thrilled’ for his friend

‘I’m thrilled for him. She’s amazing. He hit the jackpot. Just on every level. She is a remarkable woman. They’re gonna be great. They’re gonna be awesome parents. Those kids are lucky.’

Aw. Congratulations, George and Amal!
