It was reported recently that the showbiz couple are welcoming two babies in June and Matt, 46, has said George, 55, told him when Amal, 39, was eight weeks into the pregnancy.
The actor is said to have told Entertainment Tonight 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'."
