George Clooney engaged to Amal Alamuddin
That was fast! George Clooney is engaged to Amal Alamuddin. The news was confirmed by Alamuddin’s law firm on April 28.
“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 for Reuters.
“It’s actually not that surprising. He likes a woman with brains and class. She’s the full package…He’s happy and found his ideal match. He didn’t settle, so good for him”, a source told Us Weekly. “This is the healthiest relationship I’ve ever seen George in. He seems incredibly happy, and Amal is such a sweet and intelligent girl who has her own thoughts and ideas and doesn’t just bow down to everything he says”, another source added.
It looks like 52-year-old Clooney proposed to 36-year-old sometime in the past two weeks. The couple began dating in October 2013, when Clooney was still romantically linked to model Monika Jakisic.
The actor was previously wed to actress Talia Balsam from 1989 to 1993. He has also dated Lisa Snowdon, Elisabetta Canalis, and Stacy Keibler.
