Amal & George Clooney stepped out last night for dinner in New York at Patsy’s. They were with his mother, Nina. According to the restaurant’s Facebook page, the Clooneys have family history with the establishment. George posed for a photo – you can see it here – and also explained why he and his parents are so fond of the place:

"Since I have a picture of my mom eating at Patsy's Italian Restaurant when she was pregnant with me, I can honestly say that I've been going to Patsy's Italian Restaurant since before I was born. It's been a great part of my life ever since."

And you know what happened next? Several people have emailed me speculating…


It took me several minutes to put together how she could be pregnant by going to Patsy’s. And then I realised that the leap they’re making here is that since his mother was expecting when she ate there then it must follow that Amal is expecting because they ate there?

Is that all it takes?
