Amal Clooney, the 44-year-old barrister, has been married to actor George Clooney for over seven years now. In a recent interview with Time magazine, she opened up about what it is really like being married to the Ocean’s 11 actor. The couple have previously been very low-key about their private life.
What does Amal Clooney have to say about being married to George Clooney?
“Marriage has been wonderful. I have in my husband a partner who is incredibly inspirational and supportive, and we have a home filled with love and laughter,” she said. The human rights lawyer also opened up about her children – the twins she shares with the 60-year-old actor and how her life has changed since becoming a mother.
‘It is a joy beyond anything I could ever have imagined. I feel so lucky to have found a great love in my life, and to be a mother—this is how I get my balance,” she said. Her twins are named Ella and Alexander.
The ER actor’s thoughts about his wife and marriage
Although Amal Clooney hasn’t been very vocal about her marital life in the past, George Clooney shared his two cents about his family life publicly before. Last year in November, the Oscar award-winning actor appeared on an episode of the WTF With Marc Maron podcast where he had a lot of good things to say about his wife. According to Clooney, the lawyer is “the most extraordinary, smart, brilliant, beautiful woman” he’s ever met or been in love with and that he “couldn’t be happier.”
Initially, though the actor was quite against the idea of marriage that changed drastically after he met Amal. “Listen, I didn’t want to get married; I didn’t want to have kids. And then this extraordinary human being walked into my life and I just fell madly in love,” he told Maron, the host.
A little bit on their relationship
Amal Clooney and George Clooney went public with their relationship in October 2013 and were engaged not long after. They married each other within a year in Venice, Italy. They have been enjoying a happy married life since then, although not much of it comes to light. In 2017, the former gave birth to the couple’s amazing twins. The children are now four-years-old.
