Can you imagine meeting your future spouse and your future parents-in-law at the same time? Well, according to actor George Clooney, that’s exactly what happened to his now-wife, barrister Amal Clooney!

Making an appearance on the Netflix show My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman, George admitted that years ago he didn’t have to go far to meet the love of his life.

“I didn’t leave the house,” George said. “It’s the wildest thing. A mutual friend of ours said, ‘I’m stopping by and can I bring my friend?'”

Not only did George not have to leave his house, but when Amal showed up at his residence, she was greeted by George and his parents.

“The funniest thing was my mom and dad were visiting so my parents were there,” George said. “And we just talked — we stayed up all night talking.”

After that initial meeting, George and Amal exchanged email addresses, and continued their correspondence via the internet.

And there you have it, that’s how one of the world’s most eligible bachelors met the love of his life. The rest, as they say, is history.

George and Amal eventually wed in 2014 in Venice. The couple welcomed twins Ella and Alexander in 2017.
