Although George Clooney tends to keep quiet on details behind his marriage to Amal, the A-Lister opened up on The Ellen DeGeneres Show this week to spill some deets on their proposal..
“I plotted the whole thing out. I had the ring hidden behind her. I had music playing—my Aunt Rosemary’s gonna sing ‘Why Shouldn’t I?’ Everything was planned out and I’ve cooked dinner,” he recalls. “And she comes in and she’s just come back from London. Usually she’ll dress up, and now she’s like, ‘Maybe we’ll just order in. And I go, ‘No, no, no. I’ve made dinner.’ I’ve got it all set up, timed out, and the song is coming and she gets up to go wash the dishes—which she’s never done. And I’m like, ‘What are you doing?'”
George continues, “And she comes back in. Finally I blew out the candle and I said, ‘I think the lighter’s in the box behind you.’ And she reaches around and she pulls out the box and I’ve got just the ring sitting in there and she pulls it out and she looks at it and she’s like, ‘It’s a ring.'” Like somebody had left it there some other time! I don’t know. I’m doing all the moves you can do with my face.”
“I got down on my knee and said, ‘I couldn’t imagine spending the rest of my life without you.’ And she kept looking at the ring and she was looking at me and she was like, ‘Oh, my God,'” he continues. “And we now know because there was a playlist, so we know how long it actually took, and it was like 25 minutes. Finally I literally said, ‘Look, I hope the answers yes, but I need an answer I’m 52 and I could throw out my hip pretty soon.’ And she said, ‘Oh, yes.'”
All together now — Awwww!
