    So. Many. Couples. Goals.

    In an interview with Charlie Rose on CBS This Morning, George was positively overflowing with love for his wife:

    I knew fairly quickly I wanted to spend the rest of my life with Amal.


    Luckily for us, George dropped some deets about how he proposed to Amal.


    "But I have to say when I asked her, we had never talked about it… I literally dropped it on her… I was at my home and I queued up a playlist of some of my Aunt Rosemary’s songs."

    P.S. George's aunt was the jazz icon Rosemary Clooney.

    He also cracked a joke about how surprising his proposal was for Amal, saying she kept him waiting while she stood there in shock.


    "I asked her, and she just kept saying, 'Oh my God,' and 'Wow,' and we just sat there. And finally, I just said, 'Listen' — I'm 53 at the time or 52 at the time, I think. I said, 'I've been on my knee for about 28 minutes so I gotta get an answer out of this because I'm gonna throw a hip out. I might not be able to stand back up!"

    And when Charlie asked George about what has changed in his life, George adorably answered:

    You know, well there's some obvious things — closet space… I have someone who I can talk to about anything and someone who I care about more than I've cared about anybody.
