George Clooney shocked the world and broke the hearts of many women the world over when he announced his engagement to girlfriend Amal Alamuddin back in April, and it seems his path to becoming hitched is getting that much closer, since the couple got their marriage license in London this week!
From DListed (I bow down at the altar of Michael K on the daily):
Dlisted reader Susan sent in this picture she took today outside of Chelsea Town Hall in London of the announcement that Amal Ramzi Alamuddin and George Timothy Clooney got their asses a marriage license and plan to get married in Italy. I didn’t know that in London marriage licenses are announced on a piece of paper behind glass outside of town hall. I thought that a messenger wearing a fancy coat and a fancy hat with a fancy feather sticking out of it stood at the top of the stairs, pulled out a scroll and read, “Here ye, here ye, here ye! Oxford-educated international human rights lawyer Amal Alamuddin has obtained a license to marry Booker from Roseanne. May the failed tears of gold digging, fame whore cocktail waitresses commence!” That announcement is kind of like a magic eye poster. If you stare at it long enough, you’ll see four horsemen galloping toward you while farting out four swarms of locusts.
The picture in question can be seen over at DListed – it’s blurry and not anything special, but it does go to show that the nuptials you’ll cry over for the next 6 months are forthcoming VERY shortly.
Do we think these two will last? I kinda have a feeling this one is legit and will be for keeps!

George Clooney and new fiancé Amal Alamuddin seem pretty happy together and will probably have a long, happy marriage. One person who never had such an opportunity with the Silver Fox is Stacy Keibler, the newly married and pregnant um…er… former Dancing with the Stars contestant (??? Seriously, what does she do?) who just wasn’t marriage material, in ol’ Georgie’s eyes. And turns out, she’s not too thrilled about the upcoming nuptials.
From US Weekly:
A source reveals in the new issue of Us Weekly that Keibler, 34, was “irked” by her ex’s engagement last month. “When George and Stacy got together, he told her she would be the one he’d marry—and that they could have kids,” the insider tells Us of the former model, who dated Clooney, 52, for two years before their split in July 2013.
I feel like that’s a bunch of bologna considering George often said he never had any intention to marry again. I don’t think he was just promising random women a walk down the aisle, but who knows. Either way, she should be pleased – she’s got her own fairytale ending now… just not with Clooney.

George Clooney finally found a woman worth committing to in fiancé Amal Alamuddin, a British-Lebanese lawyer, author and activist. She’s pretty amazing with plenty of her own accomplishments under her belt (accomplishments which, some might say, are far more admirable than George’s). For that reason, her father believes that once Amal marries George, he’ll have to fall in line and become Mrs. Alamuddin because she’s the real star of the show.
From Radar Online:
But after getting to know the movie star, the insider reveals, “Amal’s father Ramzi approves of George wholeheartedly. He clearly has the brains to go with his beauty, and he’s working hard to prove to them that he deserves a place in their respected family.”
At the same time, “Ramzi is not very fond of all the fuss and media attention,” the source says. “But they are actually happy that the media is recognizing Amal’s accomplishments.”
“Her father couldn’t be prouder of her and is beyond thrilled that the world now knows her name and what she has done,” the source says. “He jokes that George will become known as Mr. Alamuddin instead of Amal being known as Mrs. Clooney!”
And for the first time, Clooney, 53, seems content to share the spotlight with a worthy partner.
Amal, 36, “is not a gold digger,” the source insists. “She has her own money and things going on, and George has told people that’s why he knows he can trust her and wants to be with her. She isn’t going to be arranging paparazzi photos like some of his past girlfriends have done.”
To be completely honest, I’d heard of Amal before but wasn’t familiar with what she’s actually done in her life and career, but after reading, I was like, “Damn, girl!” She speaks three languages, she’s represented some really high profile clients, she specializes in international law, human rights, criminal law and extradition… she’s just bomb. No wonder George finally wants to settle down!

If ever a time came when the apocalypse seemed closer than ever, that day is today, because George Clooney is apparently engaged. The world’s biggest bachelor and sexy silver fox is said to have proposed to girlfriend Amal Alamuddin.
Keep in mind they’ve been dating less than a year, and the news is coming from the New York Post’s Page Six, but it seems pretty solid.
Alamuddin, 36, was spotted showing off an engagement ring as she and Clooney, 52, dined at Nobu in Malibu on Thursday night with Cindy Crawford and husband Rande Gerber.
A source told Page Six, “George and Amal hoped keep the engagement quiet, but they can’t hide the fact that they are very happy.”
When contacted on Friday night by Page Six, Clooney’s rep Stan Rosenfield didn’t confirm or deny the engagement, simply telling us, “I do not comment on his personal life.”

Stacey Keibler wanted George Clooney to put a ring on it, but he’s sticking to his guns when it comes to not wanting to get married again and pretty much said a big ‘Hell no!’ to walking down the aisle with her. After they broke up, she wasted no time in finding someone else.
After announcing her engagement earlier this month to boyfriend Jared Pobre (who is a DEFINITE downgrade from the Silver Fox), it’s all becoming clear why there’s such a rush: she’s also pregnant with her first child.
She announced the news, as you do, on Twitter and Instagram, posting the following picture and caption:
Look what we’ve got cooking! A Bun’dle of love!
Oh, brother. Bet George is pleased he dodged that bullet.

George Clooney is a man of relatively few words in the sense that you don’t see his grill in your face every day on the front of tabloid magazines and gossip sites like this one. However, he’s promoting a new movie now, so he’s doing some mag covers – classy publications only, of course – and has been spewing out gems to the likes of GQ and now, Esquire.
So, what’s the Silver Fox ranting about this time around? Oh, just Twitter and how stupid celebrities who are on social networking are. Well, can’t argue with that.
In an exclusive interview conducted at the superstar’s LA home, editor Alex Bilmes talks to Clooney about the pro and cons of fame, life as a single man and the endless Internet gossip about his sexuality.
On being a celebrity, he says: “Not that I’m comparing myself to Clark Gable or whoever but they couldn’t survive in this environment. They’d punch the shit out of some people. It requires a kind of Zen quality.”
The Gravity star also shares his views on social media, saying: “I think anyone who is famous is a moron if they’re on Twitter. It’s just stupid.”
Well, I mean, Twitter is really useful to keep up on news and it’s a good way for actors/musicians to keep their fans updated on their projects and tour dates, etc. There’s also the fact that they can forge a more “personal” relationship with their fans, which is, in this day and age, really important. An artist has to be liked, has to seem accessible. I think this probably applies slightly more to pop stars than it does to actors, per se, but I think George sorta seems like a grumpy old man with this. He doesn’t understand the role technology plays in the careers of young artists so he dubs it “stupid”. Oh, dear.
