Hollywood’s hottest celebrity sugar daddy is officially off the market. George Clooney, 53, finally tied the knot with Amal Alamuddin, the 36-year-old London-based barrister who stole the bachelor’s heart in 2013. The celebrity couple’s wedding was held on September 27 in Venice in front of about 100 close friends and family. All eyes were on Amal Alamuddin in her custom-designed lace Oscar de la Renta gown.
Although the celebrity couple tried to keep the news of their engagement discreet, it was only a matter of time before word got out that George Clooney was finally ready to settle down. And people were stunned, especially since the celebrity sugar daddy once said that he never thought about marriage. It turns out that all it took to change his mind was a young, beautiful, and smart woman like Amal Alamuddin.
According to Alamuddin’s close friend, Jae Kim, everyone was worried at first about George Clooney’s reputation of being a sugar daddy who couldn’t commit. “I have to admit, that caused some motherly panic. Is she going to get hurt? He isn’t exactly Mr. Commitment, I thought,” Kim told guests in her speech at the celebrity couple’s wedding, adding that those fears quickly disappeared. “You could see in the way he held himself, treated her and others, and enjoyed life that his heart was big and he loved her with all of it.”
