Actor George Clooney ‘can't wait’ to marry Lebanon origin British lawyer Amal Alamuddin.
The Hollywood hunk, 53, gushed about his fiancée in a speech as he collected an award at the Celebrity Fight Night in Florence, Italy, on Sunday.
As he took to the stage to receive the prize, he addressed his future wife and said, ‘I would just like to say to my bride-to-be Amal that I love you very much and I can't wait to be your husband’.
The human rights lawyer appeared to be very ‘touched’ by George’s rare public display of affection.
An eyewitness told E! News, ‘She seemed so touched and overwhelmed and at that moment they looked right at each other and it was as if there was no one else in the room’, reports contactmusic.com.
It was also at the Italian gala, which was held in support of the Andrea Bocelli Foundation and The Muhammad Ali Parkinson Center, that the star let slip that he would be getting married in Venice in a ‘couple of weeks’, after it was reported that the couple would have their romantic ceremony in Lake Como.
He told the crowd, ‘I met my bride-to-be in Italy, and I will be married in Italy soon, in a couple of weeks. In Venice, of all places’.
