George Clooney Proposal: How Did He Ask Amal Alamuddin To Marry Him?

Picture it: a home-cooked meal, candlelight, ambient music ... it's the perfect scene for a marriage proposal.

Leave it to George Clooney to get it just right; according to US Weekly, that's exactly what the A-list actor did when he popped the question to British lawyer Amal Alamuddin.

Clooney, 52, crafted a beautiful dinner for Alamuddin, 36, at his Studio City, Calif. mansion. He then, of course, got down on bended knee to ask her to marry him.

A source told PageSix that Clooney "was so happy she accepted, he was calling friends with the news later that night."

Fully covering all his bases, Clooney also designed the seven-plus carat diamond engagement ring. Reportedly worth $650,000, People magazine featured an up-close-and-personal picture of it. The massive ring is composed of an ethically-mined emerald-cut diamond, boasting seven-plus carats flanked by two tapered baguettes set on a platinum band.

Both Clooney and Alamuddin are said to be overjoyed and looking forward to the upcoming nuptials. No specific date for a wedding has been set.
