Imagine a romantic home-cooked meal, prepared personally by your rich, handsome older man. Then, when you least expect it, he gets down on one knee and asks for your hand in marriage. Sounds perfect, doesn’t it?
That’s exactly how George Clooney, 52, reportedly proposed to his new fiancée, 36-year-old humanitarian lawyer Amal Alamuddin. The actor cooked a meal for her at his L.A. mansion before presenting her with a seven-carat emerald cut diamond and platinum ring, which he even designed himself.
It was revealed at the end of April 2014 that after dating for just a few months, the celebrity couple was officially engaged. And according to insiders, George Clooney wants this marriage to Alam Alamuddin to happen sooner rather than later.
“It’s only four months away, but they want to get married at the end of the summer, in early September, before Amal returns to work,” a source told Page Six about the celebrity couple’s wedding plans.
George Clooney’s parents are equally excited about their son’s quick marriage proposal. “We are very pleased,” the actor’s father, Nick Clooney, gushed to E! News. “We like Amal and we are very excited for our family and thrilled for them.” Clooney’s mother, Nina Clooney, also said that she’s “extremely happy” about the celebrity couple’s engagement, and that she likes her soon-to-be daughter-in-law “very much.”
We agree that George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin are a perfect match—he’s handsome, sophisticated, and smart, and although she’s 16 years younger than him, she’s the ideal combination of beauty and brains. Plus, any woman who can get Hollywood’s hottest bachelor to settle down with marriage is a winner in our books. We wish this celebrity couple the best!
