George Clooney is heading down the aisle soon. One of Hollywood’s most sought after leading men is off the market and will marry girlfriend Amal Alamuddin, 36, according to George’s mother Nina Clooney.
George Clooney, 52, is completely in love with Amal Alamuddin, 36, a Lebanese born Oxford educated lawyer. She was rocking a diamond on her left hand ring finger when she and George stepped out for date night at Nobu restaurant in LA on April 24.
George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin Are Engaged
The couple’s engagement was first confirmed by People Magazine via a source with knowledge of the duo’s relationship.
“George and Amal are trying to keep things very low-key but they also aren’t really trying to hide this, it doesn’t seem. I think it’s like they want the people they love to know that this is real, that they plan on being together forever,” a source revealed to People.
While George and Amal were dining at Nobu with good friends Cindy Crawford and her husband Rande Gerber, George told pal Edward Norton, “we’re engaged!” as Edward approached their table, reports Eonline.
George’s mother Nina also confirmed his engagement on April 28, to the DailyMail. “You can say I’m extremely happy, Amal’s a lovely girl,” she said.
George and Amal Are Headed To The Alter
The beautiful and brilliant Amal, is a London-based attorney with the law firm of Doughty Street Chambers who specializes in international law and human rights.
After news of the engagement broke the firm released this statement: “The barristers and staff of Doughty Street Chambers offer their best wishes and congratulations to Ms. Amal Alamuddin, a member of Chambers, and Mr. George Clooney on their engagement to be married.”
Amal and George were first spotted stepping out together in London in October 2013. The two have since traveled almost everywhere together. In February of this year, George, Amal, and his parents all caught a private screening of George’s movie The Monuments Men at the White House with President Barack Obama.
A month later, in March, the couple went on safari in Tanzania. The two have also been spotted in the Seychelles and New York City.
George had been previously married to actress Talia Balsam. After they separated in 1993 George didn’t give up bachelorhood so easily.
Hollywood’s most infamous bachelor then went on to date former WWE pro-wrestler Stacy Keibler and actresses Kimberly Russell, and Krista Allen.
The engagement comes as a huge surprise since George was always very vocal about his disinterest in marrying again.
“I was married in 1989. I wasn’t very good at it. I was quoted as saying I’ll never get married again pretty much right after I got divorced and then I’ve never talked about it since,” Clooney said in a 1995 interview with ABC’s Barbra Walters.
Well, looks like he finally met a woman who changed his mind about that. We can’t wait for the wedding!
