The Clooneys are in town! George's parents jet into Lake Como ahead of wedding of the year
Last week Amal Alamuddin and her mother were seen in Lake Como to visit George Clooney’s Italian villa in what it is thought was the actor’s second meeting with his future mother-in-law. They both toured the Downton Abbey castle together with Amal back in May.
And on Monday the star’s parents were also spotted in the picturesque location, where it is believed the couple will marry in September - after MailOnline revealed they were jetting in to help their A list son with his wedding plans,
Although Amal’s journalist mother Baria is said to have headed home on Tuesday after one night, she may have met his parents on the trip too, as it is unclear when they arrived.
The happy couple could have called their families to Lake Como to help them scout potential wedding venues.
George’s mother Nina, a former beauty queen and councilwoman, and former anchorman and game show host father Nick, were spotted visiting the luxurious Hotel Bellagio.
They couldn’t have looked more pleased for their Hollywood heartthrob son’s future as they giggled away on a boat ride to the resort.
Nina has previously expressed her fondness for her future daughter-in-law, who she has met several times, saying: ‘You can say I’m extremely happy. Amal’s a lovely girl. I like her very much.’
Nick, who turned 80 this year, will be celebrating his 55th wedding anniversary with Nina, 74, in August.
According to Life&Style George and Amal have been busy trying to find the perfect spot in Lake Como to exchange vows.
‘They checked out Hotel Villa D’Este at Cernobbio, which is famous for organizing high-profile weddings,’ a source told the publication. ‘They also had a romantic dinner for two there.’
But the 53-year-old Gravity star may well tie the knot with the 36-year-old at his own home.
Laws have been put in place by the Lake Como mayor to guarantee George’s privacy at his £25million mansion, and are in operation 24 hours a day until September 30.
Pedestrians are banned from stopping on the road outside the 30-bedroom property, while anyone caught swimming within 100 metres of it will be fined up to £450.
