George Clooney Never Discussed Marriage with Amal Before He Proposed - Hear His Proposal Story!

George Clooney is opening up about how he proposed to wife Amal Clooney and how they never actually talked about getting married before that moment.

The 59-year-old two-time Oscar-winning actor and filmmaker was a guest on Howard Stern‘s SiriusXM show this week and he discussed the proposal.

George realized he wanted to propose to Amal while they were in Africa on a safari. His proposal plan involved a homecooked, candlelit dinner, a custom engagement ring, and a romantic record sung by his famed aunt, Rosemary Clooney.

“I got it all timed out so I’m going to ask her on this one song. We’ve never talked about marriage, so I don’t know what’s going to happen,” George said. He revealed that he hid the ring in a drawer and told Amal to dig through it to find something to light the candles.

“She opens the drawer and there’s a ring in it, and she looks and goes … ‘There’s a ring.’ Like, somebody else had left a ring there 10 years ago,” George said. At this moment, he got down on one knee and Amal was so shocked that it took her 20 minutes to answer the question.

George said, “Finally, I said to her, ‘Look, I just need a yes or a no because I’m 50-something and my hip can go out.’”

Read the sweet thing that Amal recently said about George while writing her new legal book.
