IN­SIDE OUR LOVE AF­FAIR JOHN STRIKES AGAIN!

THE SMIT­TEN STAR ON HOW AMAL STOLE HIS HEART

OK! (Australia) - - This Week -

Only four years ago, Ge­orge Clooney ap­peared to be lov­ing life as a sin­gle man. Lit­tle did we know that just a few years later, the 56-year-old would re­voke his eter­nal bach­e­lor sta­tus – get­ting down on one knee and propos­ing to his now-wife Amal, 39, and later wel­com­ing twins. So does the ac­tor ever miss his sin­gle sta­tus? ‘I sure don’t. That seems like a lifetime ago,’ Ge­orge con­fessed re­cently. ‘Now my house is filled with the warm sounds of ba­bies cry­ing. You should see when my friends show up and see me change a di­a­per, the laugh­ter that comes from them. I go, “I know, I know.” I’ve given them so much shit for so many years, I de­serve ev­ery bit of it.’ Here’s mar­ried life ac­cord­ing to Ge­orge…

ON THEIR FIRST MEET­ING…

‘I thought she was beau­ti­ful, and I thought she was funny and ob­vi­ously smart,’ Ge­orge gushes of Amal. ‘She prob­a­bly thought I was old…we were writ­ing each other, email­ing, talk­ing, mostly about what was going on in each other’s lives, and over a pe­riod of time it be­came clear we were more than just friends.’

ON FALL­ING IN LOVE…

‘It changes you in ev­ery way,’ he shares. ‘Sud­denly, the other per­son’s life be­comes more im­por­tant than your own… I’m sorry I was 50-some­thing when it hap­pened, but only be­cause I could have spent even more time with her.’

ON THE PRO­POSAL…

‘Over cham­pagne, af­ter din­ner, I told her there was a lighter to light the can­dle in the drawer, and she reached back and pulled out a ring,’ the ac­tor tells. ‘I did all the stuff, got down on my knee and did all the things you’re sup­posed to do. I had a playlist with my Rose­mary songs on it [his late aunt, singer Rose­mary Clooney], and I was wait­ing for this song, Why Shouldn’t I?… And it played, and she’s like, “Holy shit!” And she just kept star­ing at the ring, going, “Oh, my God.” It was 20 min­utes of me on my knee, wait­ing for her to say yes, be­cause she was so shocked.’

ON HAV­ING KIDS…

‘It had never been part of my DNA,’ Ge­orge says of hav­ing chil­dren. ‘We never talked about it un­til af­ter we were mar­ried. We just felt we’d got­ten very lucky, both of us, and we should share what­ever good luck we’ve got.’

ON BE­ING A DAD…

‘My job is chang­ing di­a­pers and walk­ing them around a lit­tle bit,’ says Ge­orge of his new twins Alexan­der and Ella. ‘I want them to be happy.’

Af­ter John Mayer tweeted, ‘I spend an in­or­di­nate amount of timeme per day won­der­ing if Nicki Mi­naj would like me or not’, he prob­a­bly didn’tn’t ex­pect a re­ply. So imag­ineagine his sur­prise whenn she wrote back, ‘Would my body be your won­der­land?’er­land?’ The shocked singer then re­sponded:ed: ‘Please hold, los­ing my shit. This isn’t my re­ply yet.’

Gush­ing over pics of the twins on his phone, he says, ‘They’re fat and happy, they gig­gle and they laugh and they sleep.’ Aww
