George Clooney Engaged to Amal Alamuddin
In September, George Clooney told Esquire Magazine, he had no “aspirations” to be married with children. In October he was spotted with Amal Alamuddin. It is not known how the two met, but Alamuddin, 36, shares Clooney’s passion for crusading for International Human Rights. People Magazine and The New York Post’s “Page Six” reported on Saturday that unnamed sources were saying the couple are engaged to be married. The Post Newspaper’s headline read: “George Clooney, eternal bachelor, is engaged.” The Post’s source said the couple had “hoped to keep the engagement quiet, but they can’t hide the fact they are very happy.”
People Magazine quotes a “source with knowledge of the situation” saying “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. I think it’s like they want the people they love to know that this is real, that they plan on being together forever.” Alamuddin appeared to be “showing off” an engagement ring while dining with Clooney at a Malibu, California, restaurant Thursday night, The Post report said. People reported that Alamuddin “had a conspicuous ring on her left ring finger.”
Stan Rosenfield, Clooneys representative, responded to CNN’s inquiry on Saturday. He said “I do not comment on his personal life.” Clooney said in September that he realized being 52, unmarried and childless might not look good to the public, but that he shouldn’t “rush out and impregnate someone.” In October he made an unusual public denial that he was dating Alamuddin, telling People Magazine that the girlfriend reports were “all made up.” In March, he took Alamuddin on an African safari. They were caught by photographers cuddling as they watched the wildlife in Tanzania and then vacationing in the Seychelles.
