A source close to the couple confirmed to PEOPLE that Clooney popped the question a while ago to his girlfriend Amal Alamuddin. "George and Amal are trying to keep things very low-key but they also aren't really trying to hide this, it doesn't seem. I think it's like they want the people they love to know that this is real, that they plan on being together forever."
However, this is not the first time Clooney has walked down the aisle. Even though hardly anyone remembers him sticking around a single woman for a long period of time, he previously did tie the knot with actress Talia Balsam in 1989. The couple later divorced in 1993.
Amal is Lebanon born and was raised in Great Britain. She is a high profile lawyer whose clients include the likes of WikiLeaks' founder Julian Assange Kofi Annan and the King of Bahrain
Many have wondered over the years why he never marries again but have found no answers as the man doesn’t like talking too much about his personal life. When asked the same question his ex-wife said, "You'd have to ask him that but I doubt it. It doesn't look that way."
The notorious bachelor has dated a bevy of women over the years and no one was really expecting him to settle down now.
But apparently the 36-year-old British attorney who specializes in international law and human rights had what it takes to get the 52-year-old Casanova to give up his bachelor days.
Here are the girls who failed to manage what Amal Alamuddin has done:
The actress and former model was in a relationship with George Clooney who gave her Max, a pet pig that he kept after the couple split up. She is now happily married and settled with John Travolta.
George dated actress Kimberly Russell for two years after his divorce with Talia Balsam. They broke up in 1995.
Celine Balitran, a French waitress and Clooney dated from 1996 to 1999. Not much is known of her since, except that she married an indie film director David M. Rosenthal in 2002.
They met on the sets of George Clooney’s directorial debut Confessions Of A Dangerous Mind in 2002and dated on and off for two years.
The stunning former model dated Clooney for over a year between 2007-2008. She later started working in New York City for a medical spa.
The Italian model and TV personality and George Clooney dated from 209-2011. Talking about their romance she once said, “At the end of the day I have always seen the end of my relationships as a personal failure."
Adding that, "There is nothing ever pretty is saying goodbye."
