Mrs Clooney-to-be [Rex]
Sound the Clooney engagement klaxon! The first picture of Amal Alamuddin’s bling ring has surfaced and – no surprises here – it’s a corker. Amal, 36, flashed the seven-carat diamond and platinum engagement ring (estimated to be worth £450k) at George’s pal Rande Gerber's birthday party in Santa Barbara. And we caught another glimpse of the sparkler as they celebrated their engagement with Bono and Cindy Crawford on Sunday.
This comes as it’s been reported that Gorgeous George, 53, wooed Amal over email. Slightly less romantic than we’d hoped, but at least it wasn’t Snapchat we suppose. After meeting at a charity fundraiser last September, he apparently emailed her saying, ‘I think the reported hottest man in the world should meet with the hottest human rights lawyer in the world.’ Smooth, George. Smooth.
A source said, ‘He was very up front and joked about the fact they were both considered the hottest people in their respected professions. It was all very tongue in cheek but it got the ball rolling. Amal found it funny, but she still made him wait a few days before replying. It was George’s forward banter which ultimately got them talking. Once she replied that was it – it’s been non-stop ever since.’
We love that Amal waited a few days before replying. In fact, we’re close to getting more obsessed with her than we are with George, which is saying something, trust us.
