In case there were any doubters over the legitimacy of George Clooney's engagement, the news was made "official" on Monday when fiancée Amal Alamuddin's law firm offered their congratulations to the happy couple!
"The barristers and staff of Doughty Street Chambers offer their best wishes and congratulations to Ms. Amal Alamuddin, a member of Chambers, and Mr. George Clooney on their engagement to be married," a statement from the firm read, per Reuters.
In only a matter of months — seven to be exact — Hollywood's eternal bachelor became the marrying type! So, how did Amal manage to sweep him off his feet? Here's a look back at the the duo's quick romance!
George and Amal were first spotted out together in London at Berners Tavern and tabloids immediately took notice of the notable differences between the British lawyer and the actor's past girlfriends.
The brunette beauty is Oxford and NYU-educated, speaks three different languages and has represented high-profile individuals such as Wikileaks' founder Julian Assange.
Interest in Amal spiked in February when the 36-year-old joined George at a Feb. 18 White House screening of the director's film Monuments Men. She reportedly met George's parents during the outing, with a friend telling Closer, "They were blown away by her."
The 52-year-old hunk is said to have skipped this year's Oscars on March 2 to spend time with his lady love. "He flew to London to spend time with Amal, though Gravity was nominated for several awards," says a pal.
It was during this time the duo took vacations to both Tanzania and the Seychelles and later in the month, the pair were seen dining at NYC's posh Rotisserie Georgette on March 18 with a few of George's business partners. "[He] looked really happy," an eyewitness revealed to Closer.
The exact date of their engagement is unknown, but George and Amal were reportedly seen celebrating their engagement last Wednesday (April 23) at Craig's restaurant in L.A.
