“I Planned it out, I’m not Stupid”: George Clooney Calls His Proposal to Amal Clooney a Disaster, Reveals She Did Not Say Yes For a Long Time

George and Amal Clooney have had quite a relationship. The couple, who first met in 2013, have had the best of moments in the course of their nine-year-long relationship. They share two kids and have traveled the world together, all in the course of these nine years.

But their proposal was not as easy for them as one would expect. In a throwback to how the proposal went, George Clooney made the revelation, disclosing how it was about to go absolutely wrong, but how it all worked out in the end.

It was April 2014. George and Amal Clooney were having a peaceful time at their home. It was just supposed to be a normal day for the couple. But The Sand and Sorrow star had other plans. He had decided that he was going to propose to Amal that day.

Reflecting on the day in The Drew Barrymore Show, he made some shocking revelations. He had it planned in his head to the minutest of details. Where he would hide the ring, which song would play when he would propose, everything. But things seldom turn out the way you expect them to.

How George Clooney’s ‘planned proposal’ went downhill

George Clooney said, “I planned it out. I planned the whole thing out.” But it didn’t stop things from going haywire. In Clooney’s words, it was a “disaster”. The Ticket to Paradise star had hidden the ring in a lighter. According to the plan, just when Why Shouldn’t I by Rosemary Clooney started playing, he would ask her to go fetch it.

It was supposed to be something magical. But that was far from how it went down. The actor said,

“She sees the ring in the drawer and pulls it out. She says, ‘There’s a ring there,’ like somebody left a ring there years earlier, and I am on my knee, and now the song is playing, and we know exactly how long [the proposal] took because of the playlist.”

That is something that nobody would want.

Amal Clooney finally said, “YESSSS”

It wasn’t smooth sailing. It took 20 minutes of the Ocean’s Eleven actor kneeling which finally made her say, “Yes.” He continued,

“She didn’t say yes ’til ‘Goody Goody,’ but that was supposed to be later when we were dancing. She kept saying, ‘Oh my God, oh my God.’ She said, ‘Oh, yes,’ and then she said, ‘Yes, thank God.’ So, I pulled it off.”

And that is how the two of them came together in holy matrimony. It’s a relief that their married life has gone off with fewer hitches than the proposal did. They now have two kids, Alexander and Ella.
