You will never guess how they met!

January 31, 2018

You would think George and Amal Clooney first met at a super swanky cocktail party or perhaps at a $10,000 per table charity gala, right? No, not at all. Turns out, he didn't even have to leave his house. A friend of his called to say he was stopping by and could he bring a friend with him? Even funnier than that, George's parents happened to be visiting so Amal got to meet her future husband at the same time she met his parents. (Incidentally, something similar happened to me -- I was introduced to my now husband by a mutual friend on Christmas night, so I met his parents at the same time which is actually very informative and convenenient! If you can swing it, I do recommend it). Listen to him tell Letterman the story.

Don't you just love how they became pen pals first. And this from a guy who swore he would never marry again! Talk about old school. He had to really work for it. His father, Nick, has said in a previous interview about that night, "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.”

I haven't really dug into Letterman's Netflix series, but if they are all as interesting as this I'm going to have to make some time.
