George and Amal Clooney are all but confirmed to be among the godparents of Prince Harry and Meghan’s first-born child, DailyMail.com can reveal.

The A-list actor’s family, who still live in George’s hometown of Augusta, Kentucky, are convinced George and Amal will make the grade after becoming incredibly close with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

George’s cousin Ben Breslin exclusively told DailyMail.com the 57-year-old would make a ‘wonderful’ godfather to the royal couple’s baby, saying: ‘I’m all for it. He’d make a wonderful godfather, he’d make a wonderful just about anything – he’s a good guy.’

Family insiders say George considers himself almost a ‘shoo-in’ to be asked.

George and Amal, a British human-rights lawyer who shares a long-standing friendship with Meghan, are believed to socialize regularly with the royals.

The Hollywood glamour pair flew Meghan and Harry via private jet to George’s luxury residence on Lake Como after their May nuptials, where they received a crash course in parenting after meeting the pair’s one-year-old twins, Ella and Alexander.

A source close to both famous couples told DailyMail.com: ‘Amal and Meghan have been close for years, and Harry and George have become buddies because of that.

‘They’re much closer than the headlines let on.’

The insider adds that George has ‘told a couple of people he has a strong hunch’ that they’ll be among the couples asked to form such an important role in their little one’s life.

In a testament to their strong ties, Harry and Meghan are expected to attend a dinner party next month at George and Amal’s London home, with Barack and Michelle Obama on the star-studded guest list.

But it’s not just George’s Hollywood connections that have him on Harry’s radar as a godparent – in fact, his cousin Ben confirms it’s all about Amal, who Meghan considers an incredible role model.

He said: ‘Amal is beautiful and wonderful and a great addition to our family. We’ve loved her ever since we met her. He sure picked a winner with her.’

DailyMail.com can also reveal Amal and George are spending more time in his hometown – where his parents Nick and Nina still reside.

Now, his family hope they’ll bring their new royal friends along – with their newborn in tow – for their next visi

Asked if he’d like to see his cousin bring Harry and Meghan to the town after the birth of the royal baby, due next spring, Ben said: ‘Absolutely, that would be crazy but fun. It’s kind of a laid back place to be, lots of family around, we always do two or three family events a year, that’s fun and enjoyable.’

Ben added: ‘I’m not in on those royal circle talks, but that’s not to say next time he comes in we might sit down for an hour over bourbon and talk about it.

‘George’s like the rest of us, he’s as common as an old shoe, but he likes to hobnob with the big people, so that’s great.’

And the couple certainly wouldn’t be expecting any royal treatment, with Ben predicting that George would show Harry an American, country-style good time as he plays tour guide in Kentucky.

He says George would likely take Harry to his favorite hang-out, The Augusta Irish Pub, where there’s a life-sized cardboard cutout of the town’s most famous export.

‘They’d have to go and get a picture with that,’ says Ben. ‘[There’s the] basketball court that he loves in Augusta, and maybe the pool, his nieces and nephews loved the pool.

‘And [they’d] probably just drive around the country roads.’
