George Clooney’s dad just opened up about how George and Amal met

And it's lovely.

George and Amal Clooney are one of the sweetest A-List couples, with the Hollywood actor and human rights lawyer giving us all relationship goals on a regular basis.

The couple wed in 2014, and welcomed twins just last week, with their spokesperson, Stan Rosenfield, confirming the news in a hilariously cheeky email to USA Today.

‘This morning Amal and George welcomed Ella and Alexander Clooney into their lives. Ella, Alexander and Amal are all healthy, happy and doing fine. George is sedated and should recover in a few days.’

As we look forward to seeing the couple embrace parenthood, supposedly getting some tips from good pal Julia Roberts, people have been looking back at how the couple first met.

According to People, George and Amal met at ‘a dinner gathering with mutual friends in 2013’, something that George’s parents offered some insight on.

‘Nina [George’s mum] and I were actually the ones who answered the door when Amal came in,’ George’s dad Nick explained. ‘She introduced herself to us and we talked. She was obviously very charming, gorgeous and so clearly accomplished, but by the time we had supper that night, it was clear there was a kindness to her and an inclusiveness.’

Sparks were evidently flying from the word go, with Nick Clooney explaining to People, ‘By the end of supper, I started looking over at Nina and saying, “Look out, this could be trouble for this young man!”‘
