Update, 7/15: George Clooney used to be pretty "eh" about having children, but after spending time with his friends' offspring—that has to mean the Jolie-Pitt crew (opens in new tab), right?—he has changed his stance.
According to Us Weekly (opens in new tab), Amal Clooney and her self-described trophy husband (opens in new tab) have been visiting a fertility center and nesting, which for them involves installing a panic room (opens in new tab) in their $15 million country estate...along with a nursery. Renovations on the 17th-century mansion will be complete in Christmas, far in advance of the little one's arrival sometime next year. Phew. Good. Just imagine what it would be like if Baby Clooney and this rascal (opens in new tab) had to *share* London.
Update, 5/21: In the same Charlie Rose interview (opens in new tab) in which he recounted his ambush proposal to Amal, George Clooney let drop another news bomb: that he and presumably his bride/reluctant Comic Con companion are not super into the idea of having children.
"I've thought about it I suppose, but I haven't really," he said. "It hasn't been high on my list, uh, I've been asked a lot lately because I've gotten married and I'm doing a movie with kids in it. You should see how creative the way they ask me."
And try as he might, Charlie failed just like the rest of them to elicit from George a definite no/any one of the responses on this list (opens in new tab).
Update 5/20: George and Amal's love story just keeps getting better. After a surprise proposal and subsequent Venice wedding, George had one more surprise up his sleeve: He told his new bride that they would be spending part of their honeymoon at New York Comic Con to promote his new movie Tomorrowland. This, predictably, didn't go over well with Mrs. Clooney.
"The whole idea of spending part of your honeymoon with people dressed up like Captain Kirk and Star Wars characters somehow wasn't easy to explain to my new bride," George said during an interview on the Graham Norton Show. "But, I showed up and it was actually fun."
Fun for whom we wonder.
Original post, 5/19: Contrary to what you believe would probably be one of the quickest yeses of your life, it took a minute (28 to be exact) for Amal Clooney to accept George's request for her hand in marriage.
George popped the big question and it came as a total surprise to Amal, he revealed in an interview with CBS This Morning. They hadn't had a conversation about tying the knot so when he got on one knee all she could say was "wow!"
After giving her time to recover from the shock (I mean, George Clooney just proposed), he finally joked, "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!"
As we all know, Amal said yes and the two are currently living happily ever stylish (opens in new tab) after.
