Fact: George and Amal Clooney are the cutest damn power couple in the globe.
So of course the proposal was bound to be just as insanely adorable. And in the latest issue of The Hollywood Reporter, George revealed what actually went down when he finally popped the question.
He explained that as the "cook of the family" he decided to propose over a homemade dinner, sneakily hiding the ring in a nearby drawer...
I’m the cook in the family. Believe me, Amal makes reservations. I did pasta of some form, not that impressive. And then over champagne, after dinner, I told her there was a lighter to light the candle in the drawer, and she reached back and pulled out a ring.
...while a cute as hell playlist about ~taking a chance on love~ echoed in the background, as he got down on one knee.
And I did all the stuff, got down on my knee and did all the things you’re supposed to do. I had a playlist with my Rosemary songs on it [his late aunt was the singer Rosemary Clooney], and I was waiting for this song, ‘Why Shouldn’t I?’ ‘Why shouldn’t I take a chance when romance passes by? / Why shouldn’t I know of love?’ It’s a really good song about why can’t I be in love? And it played, and she’s like, ‘Holy shit!’ And she just kept staring at the ring, going, ‘Oh, my God.’ It was 20 minutes of me on my knee, waiting for her to say yes, because she was so shocked.
