George Clooney reportedly believes that the way to a woman’s heart is through her stomach.

A few days after the actor stunned the celebrity gossip world by proposing to Amal Alamuddi, Page Six has new details on just how the Oscar winner got the British lawyer to say yes.

Insiders confirm that Clooney cooked a meal for his girlfriend at his home in Los Angeles on April 22.

Amal Alamuddin, George Clooney Engaged: Who Is She?

"Then he surprised her by getting down on bended knee and presenting her with the ring," according to The New York Post. "He was so happy she accepted, he was calling friends with the news later that night."

A previous report claims that Clooney also designed the Amal Alamuddin engagement ring himself.


The evening after the proposal, the couple joined friends for dinner at Craig’s restaurant in Los Angeles where witnesses say George and Amal were "just beaming" as they talked about their future.

That future, of course, now includes a wedding.

When might it take place?

"It’s only four months away but they want to get married at the end of the summer, in early September, before Amal returns to work," a source says.

Alamuddin serves as London-based attorney at Doughty Street Chambers, a firm that focuses on international law, human rights, extradition and criminal law.

She’s an adviser to former UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan, the special envoy to Syria. Impressive stuff.
