We are yet to hear from either betrothed party, but another person close to George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin have confirmed the couple's engagement:
The actor's father!
A day after Alamuddin's law firm released a statement that congratulated these two on their decision to marry, the Oscar winner's dad told Us Weekly that he's "thrilled" for his son and future daughter-in-law.
"We have had an opportunity to interact with this wonderful young woman and these are two great people," Nick Clooney says. "We hope for them the best."
And George Clooney's mom feels the same way.
Nina Clooney told Great Britian's The Daily Mail on Monday that she was "extremely happy" about her child's engagement, adding of George's fiancee:
"Amal's a lovely girl. I like her very much."
This will mark Clooney's second marriage, though he had said on multiple occasions after his 1993 divorce from Talia Balsam that he would never walk down the aisle again.
But Alamuddin, a 36-year old British attorney who is respected for her human rights battles, clearly won the actor over with her charm, intelligence and beauty.
We wish these two the best!
