Motherhood is quite the juggling act, but Amal Clooney managed to make it look effortless as she emerged from a New York hotel on Thursday with her toddler twins. 

The 40-year-old human rights lawyer and activist carried one-year-olds Ella and Alexander in her arms while looking ever so chic in a black outfit and long leopard print gilet. 

She finished off her look with five-inch platform boots and a beret. The twins both wore jeans and white sneakers and carried matching teddy bears with festive red ties. 

Little Ella wore a fluffy white beanie and carried a stylish brown bag decorated with stickers while Alexander wore a black coat. 

The night before, Amal was a picture of glamour at the 23rd annual United Nations Correspondents Association Awards.

Juggling act: The lawyer and activist effortlyess carried her two toddlers in towering platform heels. The night before, she attended the 23rd annual United Nations Correspondents Association Awards 

She attended with her husband, George Clooney and also brought two extra special guests along: her in-laws Nick Clooney and Nina Bruce Warren.

Amal was honoured as 2018's Global Citizen of the Year at the gala. She was appointed to her first UN commission in 2013 and has taken on a number of high profile international cases in her career as a civil rights lawyer. 

As she took to the stage, she delivered a blistering speech in which she accused President Trump of giving the 'green light' to autocratic regimes who jail and kill journalists after he named the American press the 'enemy of the people'. 

She said reporters around the world are 'under attack' from autocratic regimes including in North Korea, the Philippines, Hungary, Turkey, and Brazil. 

She added: 'The U.S. President has given such regimes a green light and labeled the press in this country the "enemy of the people".

'And of course two months ago a Washington Post journalist, Jamal Khashoggi, walked into a consulate in Istanbul and was brutally tortured to death.'

Saudi Arabia has confessed to killing Khashoggi in a pre-meditated attack, but has denied its Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman was involved.

She also spoke about the jailing of two Reuters journalists, Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo, who were imprisoned for seven years in Myanmar after covering the killings of the Rohingya religious minority.

They were jailed alongside a policeman, who testified that the men were set up by authorities.

Meanwhile on Thursday, George was also spotted out in New York. 

The pair have been balancing professional duties with parenthood and have spent much of their time in Europe since welcoming the twins a little over a year ago. 

Just four months after the couple became parents, George revealed the twins were already developing their own personalities.

In an interview with Extra, the actor said his son is 'just a thug, he's a fat little boy, he laughs louder than everyone in the room. 

The Ocean's Eleven star said his daughter already looked like her mother. 

Ella is 'very elegant and dainty and has these big beautiful eyes, she looks like Amal.'   

Back in April, Amal revealed to Vogue that their children had already said their first words.   

She said coyly: 'We've had some "Mamas" and "Dadas." George was very careful to ensure that "Mama" was the first word.'
