How did Amal meet her now-husband, George?

George opened up about meeting Amal during a recent interview on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. "We met in Lake Como, Italy. She was a friend of a friend who came to visit and then I chased her for many months, calling and writing, those kinds of things," he said.

"From the minute we met, we just sort of felt like we were going to be together," he gushed. George was so taken by Amal that he proposed just six months after they began dating.

"I plotted the whole thing out. I had the ring hidden behind her... Everything was planned out... it was like 25 minutes. Finally I literally said, 'Look, I hope the answer is yes, but I need an answer because I'm 52 and I could throw out my hip pretty soon.' And she said 'Oh, yes,' and it worked out really well," he revealed.

Is Amal really pregnant?

Yes! Amal is expecting twins — a boy and a girl — with George. In fact, the lawyer has even had to take a step back from her work as an international law and human rights lawyer in order to protect the babies.

"We decided to be much more responsible, to avoid the danger. Amal will no longer go to Iraq and she will avoid places where she knows she is not welcome," George revealed.

When is Amal due?

The twins are set to arrive in June 2017. We can't wait to meet them!
