Hollywood has been waiting for this day for a long, long time!
George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin are engaged. What??
Yep, PEOPLE reports that a source confirmed to the magazine that Clooney asked Alamuddin to be his wife.
“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,” said the source. “I think it’s like they want the people they love to know that this is real, that they plan on being together forever.”
According to the source, the engagement happened “not that long ago, I think.”
Alamuddin, 36, was spotted with a huge ring on her left hand as she and Clooney, 52, dined at Nobu in Malibu on Thursday night with Cindy Crawford and husband Rande Gerber, long-time friends of Clooney.
Alamuddin is definitely a change from some of the women Clooney has dated in the past. Her resume is incredible – she studied at Oxford and the New York University School of Law, has represented Wikileaks founder Julian Assange in his extradition proceedings with Sweden, speaks three languages — French, Arabic and English — and is currently an adviser to former UN Secretary General Kofi Annan, the special envoy to Syria.
“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,” said a source close to the Gravity actor.
