George Clooney Might Be Engaged
Hell may have frozen over because forever bachelor George Clooney looks like he could be engaged.Clooney, 52, and his girlfriend (fiancée?), 36-year-old British attorney Amal Alamuddin, were seen out in L.A. Thursday night at Malibu’s Nobu, with Alamuddin wearing a ring on her left finger, Page Six reported. They were spotted Wednesday as well, with one source telling People she was wearing a “huge ring.”
One source told Page Six: “George and Amal hoped keep the engagement quiet, but they can’t hide the fact that they are very happy.”
Clooney’s rep, however, is tight-lipped, only saying, “I don't comment on my client's personal life.” (What do you do, then?)
Clooney previously was married to actress Talia Balsam from 1989 to 1993. Since then, he’s avoided marriage and wedding-talk like the plague, telling Esquire in December: “I was quoted as saying I’ll never get married again pretty much right after I got divorced and then I’ve never talked about it since.”
Guess that could be changing. Don’t worry, none of us had a chance with him anyway.
