Amal Clooney calls husband George 'great love of my life' in rare insight into marriage
Amal Clooney, 44, gave a rare insight into her marriage to George Clooney, 60, after being featured in TIME’s 12 Women of the Year 2022 issue. In an interview, the human rights lawyer revealed that her marriage is "wonderful” and she “feels lucky to have found a great love”.
Amal also opened up about her four-year-old twins – Alexander and Ella, and how they have “changed” her and strengthened the importance of her work. “With everything going on today, I want to have a good answer when they ask me what I was doing," she said.
The Time magazine posted a picture of Amal in a red a-line dress and captioned the Instagram post: "Amal Clooney doesn’t like talking about herself, writes Maria Ressa. Sit with the 44-year-old lawyer, and she’ll take you on a tour of some of the worst places in the world, where despots reign and standing up for your rights can get you killed. Yet, inevitably, she finds women in these places who want to challenge power, and she supercharges them with her own power: the law."
The human rights lawyer works to provide justice to women and journalists. She was all over the news after marrying Clooney to which she said, “I think all I can do is try to turn the spotlight to what is important. And I do actually feel like there is a female solidarity that has built up on these issues where other women will sort of call that out in a way that maybe wouldn’t have happened five or 10 years ago. So attitudes are changing.”
Amal shared her happiness as she continued, “Marriage has been wonderful. I have in my husband a partner who is incredibly inspirational and supportive, and we have a home filled with love and laughter. It is a joy beyond anything I could ever have imagined. I feel so lucky to have found a great love in my life, and to be a mother – this is how I get my balance.”
The couple has a fairy-tale romantic story. The couple first met in Lake Como, Italy, in July 2013. They got married in a fantasy wedding at the Aman Canal Grande Hotel in Venice, Italy, on September 27, 2014.
