Amal Alamuddin: Who is George Clooney's Fiancee?

by at .  Updated at .

They are the four words we never thought we'd write:

George Clooney is engaged.

The long-time bachelor popped the question this week to Amal Alamuddin, a British lawyer he's been seeing since the fall.

Aside from expressing consternation of Clooney actually choosing to marry again, most celebrity gossip followers are now asking one simple question: Who Amal Alamuddin?!?

Here are seven facts about the future Mrs. George Clooney:

  1. Alamuddin is an attorney (known as a "barrister" in Great Britain) who specializes in international law, human rights, extradition and criminal law.
  2. Last year, she nabbed the top spot on London's Hottest Barrister list.
  3. She is trilingual. Alamuddin speaks English, French and Arabic. (She may wanna add Italian to that list, considering the many trips she'll be making to Clooney's mansion in Lake Como.)
  4. She also has been appointed to many U.N. commissions and is an advisor to former United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan on Syria.
  5. She represented WikiLeaks' founder Julian Assange in his extradition proceedings with Sweden.
  6. She is a graduate of New York University School of Law.
  7. She was born in Lebanon. 

So... there you have it.

Of course, all of these tidbits are now trumped by the most fascinating one of all: Amal Alamuddin is engaged to George Clooney!!!
