George ClooneyIt’s been just over three months since George Clooney, 53, wed 36-year-old human rights lawyer Amal Ala­mud­din, and it didn’t take long for rumors to sprout that their famous May-December mar­riage wasn’t as solid as it looked.

The celebrity age gap cou­ple made their first red car­pet appear­ance together at the 72nd Annual Golden Globe Awards on Jan­u­ary 11, and if any­one had their doubts about whether or not Clooney’s May-December mar­riage to Amal Ala­mud­din was the real thing, he found a good way to show the world that they’re adjust­ing to mar­ried life just fine.

The actor was hon­ored for life­time achieve­ment with the pres­ti­gious Cecil B. DeMille Award, and at the end of his speech, he paid trib­ute to his young new wife and his famous May-December marriage.“I’ve had a pretty good year myself,” he told the star-studded crowd. “Lis­ten, it’s a hum­bling thing when you find some­one to love—even bet­ter when you’ve been wait­ing your whole life.”

Prob­a­bly not what all of his famous ex-girlfriends wanted to hear, but he didn’t stop there. “Amal, what­ever alchemy it is that brought us together, I couldn’t be more proud to be your hus­band,” he said as his wife smiled coyly at him from the audi­ence. It was cer­tainly an “aww” moment for every­one watching.

What do you think—will George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin’s May-December mar­riage last?
