For a guy who was a self-proclaimed perpetual bachelor and said he would never marry again, George Clooney is certainly looking like a man who has no doubt that he’s found “the one.” Clooney is clearly madly in love with his bride-to-be, Amal Alamuddin, and it gives hope and renewed patience to all of us singles who are searching for our one and only.
Earlier this week Clooney took the stage at the Celebrity Fight Night Gala in Florence, Italy, to give an acceptance speech after being given the Andrea Bocelli Humanitarian Award. He thanked the people of Italy for bestowing the honor, but his address quickly turned into a lovefest for his fiancée. “I have to tell you, I met my bride-to-be in Italy and I will marry in Italy, soon, in a couple of weeks. In Venice, of all places,” he said. “In closing, I would just like to say to my bride-to-be, Amal, that I love you very much. And I can’t wait to be your husband.”
The man is almost literally shouting his love from the rooftops.
For years, Clooney made it seem like he was a lifetime member of the playboy club. He had more than his fair share of beautiful women on his arm and even appeared to string along a few for semi long-term relationships. Stunners Elisabetta Canalis and Stacy Keibler were both famously involved with Clooney, knowing his “I’ll never marry” declarations, but it seemed a tad obvious that they were secretly hoping to lock down the A-lister. Both moved on quickly since breaking up with Clooney. Canalis became engaged in August and maybe not so coincidentally plans to marry the same month as Clooney. Keibler married earlier this year and just gave birth to her first child.
Clooney and Alamuddin’s story is a testament to the belief that true love really exists. There’s someone for everyone, and sometimes it just takes a little longer to find the right person. Clooney discovered that being in love means being fiercely protective toward that person and their family and being so excited to spend the rest of your life with them that you can’t wait to walk down the aisle. Heck, the man who said he would never marry is now actively involved in wedding preparations.
We love the fact that Clooney has changed for the better and is so adorably in love with Alamuddin. Fingers crossed that this Hollywood fairy tale has a happy ending.
