George Clooney's representative has fuelled rumours suggesting the actor is engaged to new girlfriend Amal Alamuddin by refusing to confirm or deny new reports the movie star is planning to give up single life.
The Ocean's Eleven star, 52, has been romantically linked to British lawyer Alamuddin since October (13), months after he split from ex-girlfriend Stacy Keibler, when they were first spotted enjoying a dinner together in London. He has yet to open up about the blossoming relationship, but she attended a White House screening of his film The Monuments Men earlier this year (Feb14) and jetted off to Tanzania with him for a safari holiday in March (14).
Now reports suggest the Hollywood ladies' man is ready to settle down - Alamuddin, 36, was sporting what appeared to be a "huge" engagement ring on her left ring finger while she and Clooney were spotted seemingly celebrating their happy news with friends at Los Angeles hotspot Craig's on Wednesday (23Apr14). The ring was still clearly visible when Clooney and his latest love hit Malibu restaurant Nobu on Thursday (24Apr14) for a double date with the actor's best pal Rande Gerber and his wife, former supermodel Cindy Crawford, according to People.com.
A source says, "George and Amal are trying to keep things very low-key but they also aren't really trying to hide this, it doesn't seem. I think it's like they want the people they love to know that this is real, that they plan on being together forever." Meanwhile, Clooney's representative has failed to silence the gossip, simply stating, "I don't comment on my client's personal life."
If the rumours are true, it will be the actor's second marriage - he was previously wed to Talia Balsam until their divorce in 1993, while his former flames include British model Lisa Snowdon, Italian actress Elisabetta Canalis and former wrestler Keibler, who wed businessman Jared Pobre in Mexico last month (Mar14), and is pregnant with the couple's first child.
