George and Amal Clooney announced in February that they will be expecting twins this June. Their two year marriage seems a very happy one- but do you know how it all began?
The couple first met in Italy at a charity fundraiser in 2013. “It’s a humbling thing when you find someone to love,” George said in 2015. “Even better if you’ve been waiting your whole life.”
George was smithen right away. “I think about three days in, you could tell,” he told. “I mean, I knew when I met her that she was so extraordinary and special. And then I wondered if I’d ever get a chance to date her.”
In 2014, George proposed over a romantic home-cooked meal. Amal did’t expected and kept saying “Oh my God,” and “Wow,” instead of giving an immediate answer. “Finally I just said, listen, I’m 52 and I’ve been on my knee now for about 28 minutes so I’ve got to get an answer out of this,” .
George, 55, and Amal, 39, have now adjusted to life as husband and wife, continuing to work in their respective fields.
