According to People magazine, the notorious bachelor proposed to his British girlfriend of just over 6 months, Amal Alamuddin - and she said yes.

HOW TO FAKE IT AS AN A-LIST GROOM

"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," the insider told the American tabloid.  "I think it's like they want the people they love to know that this is real, that they plan on being together forever."

The humanitarian lawyer was spotted flashing a big ring in California last week, whilst enjoying a meal out with her alleged fiancé and close friend Cindy Crawford.

CELEBRITY PROPOSALS

Thus far, George's representatives have refused to comment on the actors 'private life.' but Amal's law firm has congratulated the couple:

"The barristers and staff of Doughty Street Chambers offer their best wishes and congratulations... on their engagement to be married," the London firm said in a statement yesterday. 

Nina Clooney, George's mum, also said she is 'extremely happy' with the news.

Clooney has been quoted saying he would never marry again, having 'not been very good at it' when he was married to actress Talia Balsam between 1989 and 1993.

CELEBRITY BLING: ENGAGEMENT RINGS

Since his divorce, he has become a bit (read: a lot) of a Lothario, romancing a string of attractive women including Kelly Preston, Lisa Snowdon, Elisabetta Canalis, and most recently, wrestler Stacy Keibler.

Clooney and Keibler split in July 2013, and soon after he started dating Amal.
