What a beauty!
Amal Clooney is the latest cover woman on Vogue Magazine‘s May 2018 issue! Check out what the barrister and social activist shared with the mag, and also some sweet words from her husband George Clooney below:
On their twins first words: “We’ve had some ‘Mamas’ and ‘Dadas.’ George was very careful to ensure that ‘Mama’ was the first word.”
George on Amal’s professional career: “She’s the professional, and I’m the amateur. I get to see someone at the absolute top of their game doing their job better than anybody I’ve ever seen.”
George on knowing he wanted to propose during a safari trip in Africa: “Some giraffes walked up to her. They just came out of the blue. I took a picture of her, and she was smiling. I said to my buddy Ben, ‘You know, I think I should ask her to marry me.’ And Ben said, ‘I think that’s a good idea.'”
George on meeting her at 35-years-old through a mutual friend at his home in Lake Como, Italy: “Of course she was beautiful. But I also thought she was fascinating, and I thought she was brilliant. Her life was incredibly exciting—the clients she was taking on and the superhuman work that she was doing. I was taken with her from the moment I saw her.”
Amal on their first date in London: “It felt like the most natural thing in the world. Before that experience, I always hoped there could be love that was overwhelming and didn’t require any weighing or decision-making.” Now, she considers love “one thing in life that I think is the biggest determinant of happiness, and it’s the thing you have the least control over.”
