A representative for newlywed George Clooney has dismissed reports suggesting the actor and his wife Amal are hoping to adopt a child to complete their family.

Sources told Woman's Day magazine the couple was looking to adopt a boy or girl from a war-torn nation to "highlight the plight of orphans in countries like Syria".

But a rep tells GossipCop.com the story is "100 per cent fabricated".

The Clooneys exchanged vows in Venice, Italy in September (14).
