After barely seven months of dating, George Clooney is engaged to Amal Alamuddin! The British lawyer Amal was first spotted wearing a large engagement ring while out to dinner with Cindy Crawford and her husband Rande Gerber. Allegedly, in the middle of their dinner the couple told their friend Edward Norton that they were engaged which led to his congratulating them with kisses.
The couple first began dating in October of 2013 after they were spotted together at a party. Their whirlwind romance included trips to Seychelles and Tanzania before returning to the United States for dinner dates in California. Both George and Amal have a shared interest in world issues and work with the United Nations. While this will be the first marriage for Amal, it will be the second for George. He was married to Talia Blasam from 1989 to 1993 after which he vowed to never get married again. Last year the 52-year-old Oscar winner said:
“I haven’t had aspirations in that way, ever. I was married in 1989. I wasn’t very good at it. I was quoted as saying I’ll never get married again pretty much right after I got divorced and then I’ve never talked about it since.”
In October, George’s representative said that the pair were just friends saying:
“He wants Amal to be able to prosecute cases without being hassled because she had one dinner with George and four others. I even asked George if these rumors were true and he said he never comments on his private life, but in the interest of stopping the harassment of all three of these women, he felt he should.”
George was famously linked to Stacy Keibler for two years before ending their relationship in July 2013. She is currently pregnant and expecting her first child with her husband of one month Jared Pobre.
