The actor proposed to Amal Alamuddin and she said yes.
52 year old George Clooney appears to have proposed to his 36 year old girlfriend, Amal Alamuddin, according to People magazine. A source told the mag that the engagement happened “not that long ago” and that the couple are keeping it low key for now. They also haven’t decided on a date for the wedding, but Alamuddin has been spotted wearing a “huge ring”, which could’ve been nothing else but an engagement one.
Amal Alamuddin is a British attorney and she doesn’t have any Hollywood ties. A source told People earlier this year: “He’s with someone who is a very accomplished attorney. She isn’t someone who is pursuing a career in acting or entertainment. She’s on his level.” The couple have been dating since last autumn, soon after Clooney broke off a two year relationship with Stacy Keibler. The latter moved fast, marrying Jared Pobre this year, which may have caused Clooney to try and reach the same level. Is their engagement a little sudden? Only they should know.
Alamuddin was born in Beirut, and she can speak French and Arabic additional to English. She studied Law at Oxford and NYC, having had a very successful career in the field so far. She hasn’t been married before. Meanwhile, Clooney had a four year marriage with Talia Balsam back in the late 80s-early 90s, and he doesn’t have any kids. Neither source has yet confirmed the engagement, Clooney’s rep stating: “I don’t comment on my client’s personal life.”
