First, the two were spotted in London at the U.K. premiere of "The Boys in The Boat" on Dec. 3. As they walked the red carpet — both in black ensembles — it was raining. George Clooney, ever the gentleman, was photographed holding a clear plastic umbrella over his bride.

Amal Clooney then braved the rain solo the following day, walking a red carpet at The Fashion Awards 2023 at the Royal Albert Hall in a dazzling gold gown. Instead of her husband holding the umbrella, however, an assistant was tasked with the job.

George and Amal Clooney have been married since 2014 and are parents to twins Ella and Alexander.

Over the years, the “Ocean’s 11” star — who was previously known as Hollywood’s most eligible bachelor — has expressed how Amal Clooney stole his heart and became the love of his life.

Here is a look at their major life moments as a couple.

2013: George Clooney meets Amal Clooney

George Clooney met a then-Amal Alamuddin at his home in Lake Como, Italy, in July 2013, per The Hollywood Reporter.

The actor also told David Letterman on his Netflix show “My Next Guest Needs No Introduction” in 2018, that they met through a mutual friend who was paying him a visit. The “Ticket to Paradise” actor joked that he didn’t even “have to leave the house” to meet the woman of his dreams.

“It’s the wildest thing,’’ Clooney told David Letterman on his Netflix show “My Next Guest Needs No Introduction" in 2018. “A mutual friend of ours said, ‘I’m stopping by and can I bring my friend?’ And I was like, ‘Of course.’ I got a call from my agent, who called me and said, ‘I met this woman who’s coming to your house who you’re gonna marry.’’’

Coincidentally, Clooney’s parents were also there and met their future daughter-in-law the same time he did.

“The funniest thing was my mom and dad were visiting, so my parents were there,” he said. “And we just talked and we stayed up all night talking... I got her email address because she was going to send me some pictures of my parents and we started writing.”

Adding, “I didn’t really, I didn’t know if she wanted to go out with me. I just thought, you know, we were buddies.”

In a cover story for Vogue in 2018, Amal Clooney said of emailing back and forth with the actor: “Before that experience, I always hoped there could be love that was overwhelming and didn’t require any weighing or decision-making.”

She added that their romance “felt like the most natural thing in the world.”

October 2013: They were spotted on a date in London

The actor was then photographed with the attorney leaving Berners Tavern in London and sitting together in the back seat of a car, per E! News.  

The actor spoke about their first date in London while talking to The Hollywood Reporter in September 2017. He invited her to visit him in the city while he was working on the film “Monuments Men.”

“That was a good first date,” he said. “Then we went for dinner. She said, ‘Let’s go to this place.’ It was one of those places that was incredibly hip and chic. And when we came out, there were 50 paparazzi there. But she handled it like a champ. And pretty quickly, things escalated once I was in London.”

The actor also told the outlet that they spent Christmas that year in Cabo San Lucas and went on a safari in Kenya.

April 2014: Amal and George Clooney get engaged

Clooney revealed in his THR profile that he started planning his engagement to Amal Clooney in February of 2014. Months later, they were engaged when he proposed on April 28, 2014, to be exact.

For the occasion, the Hollywood star made pasta for dinner and "over champagne" popped the question.

"After dinner, I told her there was a lighter to light the candle in the drawer, and she reached back and pulled out a ring,” he recalled. “And I did all the stuff, got down on my knee and did all the things you’re supposed to do... and she’s like, ‘Holy s---!’ And she just kept staring at the ring, going, ‘Oh, my God.’"

He said he was on his knee for “20 minutes” and “waiting for her to say yes because she was so shocked.”

September 2014: George and Amal Clooney make their red carpet debut as a couple

By September of 2014, the pair was stepping out together in public. Their first red carpet moment and major event together was on Sept. 7 of that year — just weeks before they got married.

The couple coordinated in all-black to attend the Celebrity Fight Night gala benefitting The Andrea Bocelli Foundation and The Muhammad Ali Parkinson Center in Florence, Italy.

September 2014: They get married in Italy

Months after getting engaged, George and Amal Clooney became husband and wife on Sept. 27, 2014.

The couple got married in front of about 100 family and friends in a private ceremony at the Aman Canal Grande luxury resort in Venice, Italy.

The bride wore a custom Oscar de la Renta French lace wedding gown, according to People, which shared photos from their ceremony. The Oscar winner wore a bespoke Giorgio Armani black tuxedo.

“George and I wanted a wedding that was romantic and elegant, and I can’t imagine anyone more able than Oscar to capture this mood in a dress,” she also told Vogue.

February 2017: Amal Clooney is pregnant

News of Amal’s pregnancy was first revealed in February of that year. While the couple maintained relatively quite about their pregnancy, Matt Damon confirmed it to TODAY during an interview while congratulating the pair.

“We were working together last fall. He came up to me on the set and took me aside and told me. I was so happy for him,” he recalled. “I was hugging him ... and I said, ‘Well so, how far along is she?’ and he goes, ‘Eight weeks.’ And I’m like, ‘Don’t say anything!’”

The following month, George Clooney told Extra, “She is doing really great. She is amazing. I don’t have anything to do. There is nothing I can do to help, but make tea and stuff.”

June 2017: Amal and George Clooney welcome twins

On June 6, the couple became first-time parents to twins, son Alexander and daughter Ella.

Per George Clooney, he told THR that their twins were a month premature with Alexander weighing five-and-a-half-pound Alexander and Ella weighing four-and-a-half-pounds.

“It was wild,” he recalled of becoming a father. “You know, everything is conceptual until it’s real. It’s like, ‘Yeah, we’re going to be parents, yeah.’ And all of a sudden you go: ‘Holy s---. I’m a parent!’”

Adding, in part, “I want them to be happy. I want them to have a sense of humor. I want them to be interested in things. I want them to be compassionate about other people’s plights. Because that’s the thing, you know? You have to have some sort of empathy.”

March 25, 2021: George Clooney opens up to TODAY about becoming a parent later in life

The former "ER" star opened up to TODAY's Hoda Kotb about becoming a dad at the age of 56.

He said that welcoming his two children have given him "everything" he hadn't even realized he was missing.

"A sense of belonging and a sense of home and the unconditional love and the all the things that, you know, you were hoping you could get from a really good career and a dog," he laughed. "You realize that this is a lot more than that."

He explained that before meeting his wife and having their two children, he "felt like I had a pretty full life."

"And then I met Amal and realized that my life had been pretty empty," he said. "And then we throw these two kids in there, then suddenly you realize how incredibly empty it was and fills it all up. It makes it fun."

October 2021: 'The Tender Bar' appearances

The Clooneys walked the red carpet to promote Prime Video's film "The Tender Bar," which George Clooney directed.

“They actually did say it wouldn’t last,” he chuckled.

In an interview on TODAY, George Clooney said it wasn't awkward for them to film the movie most of the time, until "my wife and kids come by to visit" the set.

“I mean it was the first day they came to visit,” Roberts added. “It’s like, ‘Papa, oh, Auntie Juju.’ It’s like — ‘Get ‘em out, get ‘em out!’”

“It’s really bad,” Clooney continued. “‘What are you doing, Papa? What is that?’”

The duo later revealed Clooney’s kids (thankfully) weren’t around for the filming of a kissing scene.

December 2022: George Clooney and the Kennedy Center Honors

In December 2022, George Clooney was honored for his lifelong body of work as an actor at the Kennedy Center Honors.

Amal Clooney walked the red carpet with him at the Washington D.C. event. In the weeks leading up to the lifetime achievement award, George Clooney told The Washington Post that his current job was to "make peace" with aging and to try to live his life "as fully as possible."

He added that in his youth, he would've thought that meant working as much as possible, but his wife had changed his perspective.

“Amal changed that for me, in a big way. Because now there was this incredible love, this incredible sense of family and these two kids, who are (something) that I didn’t really think I was ever going to do,” he said.
