Nick Clooney: Thrilled Over Son's Engagement to Amal Alamuddin!

by at . Comments

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!

What a joke!!!! For some reason I think this is another Rock Hudson fiasco....all the pretty women he has dated and this is what he picks.... Find him very conceited and he wouldn't want any woman to upstage him. Not a fan....and don't care....

For Real??
George Clooney off the market, and ready to settle down!!
I can easily believe that Stacey Kiebler moving on by getting married after dating Clooney gave him a real eye opener. Congratulations to George and his ladylove, however I believe that George will earn his 3rd Oscar way before standing in front of a minister and saying I do. We shall see!!
