She said yes! Eternal bachelor George Clooney ENGAGED to hot Lebanese GF Amal Alamuddin
Oh my em to the gee! It's only been 6 months since we've been sighting the starry-eyed couple around, but self-confessed bachelor George Clooney has finally gone and done it: Clooney popped the question to GF Amal Alamuddin, and she's said YES!
No one thought the 52-year-old would ever get married again after he told Piers Morgan in 2011: "I was married, so I gave it a shot," which he said should have "proven how good I was at it."
But he did it, and even with his track record of many romances the 36-year-old Lebanese beauty could not have said no in the first place! Nonetheless, we think the Hollywood hunk is one lucky man to have this mix of brains & beauty as his wifey.
A source with knowledge of the situation told People Magazine that the happy couple are keeping it on the down low. "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."
We're not sure how long this hot news has been on the horizon, but some diners at the Hollywood hotspot "Craig's" dished that they spotted the sexy star toasting his engagement with his Beirut bride-to-be at his side. One source suggested that G & A got engaged "not that long ago, I think," but no wedding plans are in the works just yet.
Some serious bling was seen on Amal's slender finger the following night at Malibu's trendy Japanese joint "Nobu." The pair were joined by Clooney's longtime pals supermodel Cindy Crawford and her hubby Rande Gerber, who were some of the first to see the GIANT rock.
Amal was first spotted with her husband-to-be last October in the US, before their relationship quickly developed with a series of high-profile dates, and even a romantic trip to Tanzania and the Seychelles in March.
His string of celebrity lovers that followed his marriage to actress Talia Balsam include British model Lisa Snowdon, Italian actress Elisabetta Canalis, and former professional wrestler and model Stacy Keibler, whom he split from in 2013 after two years of dating.
Here's to the happy couple, cheers!
