George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin are reportedly engaged!
The insider stated, “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.”
Clooney previously vowed to never marry again, but it appears the hunky actor had a change of heart. Maybe he just needed to meet the right woman!
George’s now-fiancee, Amal, was spotted showing off her ring at Nobu in Malibu, California on Thursday. The 52-year-old actor and the 36-year-old humanitarian lawyer enjoyed a sushi dinner with George’s friends, model Cindy Crawford and actor Edward Norton.
The British beauty apparently gave Crawford a peek at her new bling. A source said, “Multiple sources confirm that they saw Amal showing off a ring to Cindy, the wife of Clooney’s business partner Rande Gerber, sparking rumors of an engagement.”
Clooney’ representative Stan Rosenfield did not deny the engagement reports, but stated, “I do not comment on his personal life”.
Amal studied at St Hugh’s College Oxford and the New York University School of Law. She is an adviser to former UN Secretary General Kofi Annan, who is the special envoy to Syria.
Alamuddin, who was born in Beirut, is fluent in three languages. Her background in international law and human rights would seem to be right on par with Clooney, who is an advocate for refugees in Darfur.
George has been married before briefly to actress Talia Balsam from 1989 to 1993.
He said he wasn’t totally opposed to the idea of marriage, but felt he wasn’t the marriage type.
In December he told Esquire, “I haven’t had aspirations in that way, ever. I was married in 1989. I wasn’t very good at it.”
George also said that while some people might think it strange that he doesn’t have any children, he doesn’t feel any need to rush out and start a family.
He said, “What do you do? Should I go, ‘I got to get me some kids right now!’ and rush out and impregnate someone? Look, what I do know is that I was raised in a loving, happy family. I don’t have any dislike or distrust of that.”
We’re still pretty shocked, but good for him!
