Sorry ladies, but Hollywood’s most eligible bachelor, actor George Clooney has confirmed that he intends to get hitched to his girlfriend Amal Alamuddin. It was confirmed on Saturday that the A-List Oscar winner has at long last found love, and is officially taking himself off the market. The once coined “Sexiest Man Alive” by People magazine may have finally found “The One.” Friends of the actor say that the relationship between 52-year-old Clooney and the 35-year-old British international attorney is the healthiest they’ve ever seen the actor involved in.
The handsome leading man has been known for his very public romances with very young and very beautiful actresses and models like his recent long-time relationship to Stacy Keibler who broke up with Clooney in 2013 after two a year courtship and recently announced her marriage to businessman Jared Pobre and is also expecting her first child. Other women known to have been on the arm of Clooney include Lisa Snowdon, Renee Zellweger, and Kelly Preston among others. George Clooney had been married once before from 1989 to 1993 to actress Talia Balsam, and had said several times to the press that he would never marry again. Those closest to George Clooney believe that his change of heart may have something to do with the fact that unlike Clooney’s past loves, Amal Alamuddin is not an actress and has no aspirations for the limelight. Alamuddin has been described as someone who is equally accomplished in her own career on the same level as Clooney. Alamuddin is described by friends as someone who is intelligent with her own point of view who doesn’t bow down to the movie star.
The couple reportedly were first spotted together publicly as early as the fall of last year in London. At the time, Clooney was paired with model Monica Jakisic but the pair were being seen together more frequently trotting the globe. Clooney and Alamuddin have attended a White House event together, been spotted on the beaches of South Africa, a safari in Tanzania and have even been caught in France and the Seychelles. With his playboy days now behind him and being officially be off the market, that doesn’t necessarily mean that Clooney has any immediate plans to change his busy work schedule. With no wedding date announced, the Gravity star is currently working on his latest project Tomorrowland slated for release sometime next year.
Clooney and Alamuddin have been seen around town as they go public with their pending nuptials. More recently, the couple joined another celebrity couple, Cindy Crawford and her husband, businessman Rande Gerber, at Nobu restaurant in Malibu, where witnesses claim that Alamuddin was sporting and showing off a very large ring on her left hand. As early as April 23, the couple was spotted at West Hollywood eatery Craig’s where witnesses say the couple were celebrating their engagement together. Sources close to the couple believe that George Clooney may have popped the question to his bride-to-be while the two were on a recent vacation in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.
