George Clooney’s Mom Confirms George & Amal’s Engagement
It’s the news that Hollywood thought would never come true — George Clooney is about to be a married man!
But it’s true! George’s mom, Nina Clooney, confirmed the couple’s big news, and lent her excitement to her son and future daughter-in-law.
“You can say I’m extremely happy…We weren’t at all surprised when they told us they were engaged, and we couldn’t be happier for them,” George’s mom told the Daily News on April 28. “Amal’s a lovely girl.” She continued to beam over her son’s lady love, saying, “‘I like her very much” and complimenting her for her “brains and beauty.”
It’s safe to say that Amal, 36, has her future mother-in-law’s stamp of approval! Nina complimented the British lawyer on her wits and intelligence, and she’s clearly privy to the fact that Amal is not a celebrity like George, 52. “On an intellectual level, they are equals. That is very important to him,” Nina told the site. “Amal’s world couldn’t be more different from the Hollywood lifestyle…She’s a lawyer, she is brilliant, she is a very bright woman and at the very top of her career.”
Brains and beauty aside, the couple is also very happy together and for all of the right reasons. “They share a sense of fun, a sense of humour and they are both very caring people,” Nina added.

“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,” the firm said in a statement, released by Reuters.
