Romance from a fairy tale! A longtime bachelor George Clooney finally met his match in the stunning, successful human rights lawyer Amal Clooney. Still, it took Amal a while to accept that their romance was real.
“We never talked about marriage when we were dating, and I asked her out of the blue,” George told CBS in November 2020.[It] it took her a long time to say yes. I was on my knees for about 20 minutes. Finally I said, ‘Look, I’m going to dislocate my hip.’ We told the story to her parents, and they said, ‘Is there something wrong with his hip?’
Five months after the actor proposed, the two tied the knot in a stunning wedding at the Aman Canal Grande Hotel in Venice, Italy on September 27, 2014.
“Staff were preparing bouquets, table arrangements and other floral designs well into the night,” a hotel source said. Us Weekly in that time. “Everything they used was white with green flowers, lots of roses and peonies.”
The couple first met on Lake Como in Italy in July 2013. Later that year they had their first date in London.
“I thought she was beautiful and I thought she was funny and obviously smart Ocean’s Eleven said the actor The Hollywood Reporter in September 2017. “We wrote to each other, emailed, talked, mostly about what was going on in each other’s lives, and over time it became clear that we were more than friends.”
After a whirlwind romance and several vacations, the couple returned home to Los Angeles. Then – while reminiscing about the trip to Kenya – George decided he wanted to stay with Amal forever.
“I had a picture of her looking back, smiling at these giraffes,” he told THR. “And I said, ‘I think I’m going to ask her to marry me.'”
Although the couple did not initially plan to start a family, Us confirmed in February 2017 that they were expecting. The first parents soon welcomed their twins, Aleksandra and Ela, in June 2017.
Today, the family lives a charmed life together – despite the normal hiccups that every relationship goes through.
“Like any marriage, they had their challenges and had to adapt to certain situations and challenges,” the source said Us in April 2021. “It takes compromise, boundary-setting, and a lot of patience to keep a relationship on track, but that’s exactly what they did.”
