Amal Alamuddin and George Clooney's marriage has been rumoured to be in trouble, with the couple considering a divorce for the past few months. Various rumours have suggested that the barrister wife isn't able to strike a balance between her career and marriage. But it appears all these speculations have been replaced with brand new pregnancy rumours.

Despite various issues in their relationship, Clooney and his wife are considering having a baby, and apparently, because of these baby talks, their marital equation has improved.

"They plan to have a baby within the next year. They have had conversations about why they could have trouble conceiving," a source told Life & Style (via Celeb Dirty Laundry).

The source reportedly claimed that the couple may consider making it work through an IVF treatment. "First off, George is in his mid-50's which means that the volume, mobility, and structure of his sperm will have declined. For her part, Amal is barely 100 pounds. If need be, they will consider outside help such as IVF. They'll do anything to have a baby, and soon," the source added.

After these pregnancy rumours went buzzing, KDramaStars reported that this could be the reason why the "Tomorrowland" actor could be hesitant to divorce his wife Amal Alamuddin.

Meanwhile a few days ago, UK Justice Minister Edward Faulks had ridiculed Amal by blatantly calling her a bad lawyer. In an interview with Daily Mail, he said: "I'm sure she gets such high-profile cases and everyone wants her because she's married to George Clooney. And by employing her they'll give publicity to their case."

"I heard her speak after the court case defending the journalists who were convicted in Egypt and, if I'd have closed my eyes, I'd have never placed her because she has this new-age media trendy accent," he added.

After the comment went viral online, Amal's supporters took to Twitter to criticise Fualks.

Douglas Connors wrote: "Edward Faulks QC, U.K.'s Minister of Justice is a douche. Thank you for listening."

Sandra Gionas tweeted: "Wow! #Arse of the moment goes to Edward Faulks QC, U.K.'s Minister of Justice #applause #applause"

Tara McKerr wrote: "Edward Faulks should be disgusted with himself after those Amal Clooney remarks... Pig"

Melissa Bradshaw said: "Edward Faulks QC should apologise for his shameful sexism."

Well, it looks like amidst all the divorce and pregnancy rumours, George Clooney and his barrister wife Amal Alamuddin have a lot more issues to deal with.
