George Clooney Turns 56 -- See His Hilarious Birthday Greetings and Insane Cake From Wife Amal!
By Antoinette Bueno
George Clooney had a birthday to remember.
The handsome actor and father-to-be turned 56 on Saturday, and his good pals took to social media to greet him. Clooney's close friend and Casamigos business partner Rande Gerber set the tone, ribbing him by sharing a throwback pic of the actor giving his best modeling pose.
"The modeling thing may not have worked out, but @casamigos sure did," Gerber joked. "Happy Birthday George!"
But nothing was more impressive than Clooney's wife Amal's birthday cake for both her husband and 55-year-old Gerber, who celebrated his own birthday on April 27. The human rights lawyer, who's currently pregnant with twins, got them a Casamigos cake complete with cutouts of both them. A source tells ET Gerber and Crawford flew to London to surprise Clooney for his birthday, and Amal had an elaborate birthday cake made replicating the Casamigos tequila bar from Clooney and Gerber's houses in Mexico.
"Amal set it all up and Rande and Cindy surprised George when he got home," the source says. "He was totally surprised."
Gerber Instagrammed a pic of the epic cake on Monday. "Celebrating our Birthdays @casamigos style," Gerber wrote. "Thanks for the cool cake Amal. #houseoffriends."
