George and Amal Clooney are one of Hollywood's most seemingly perfect couples, but apparently George's proposal didn't exactly go off without a hitch.
George appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and talked about how it all went down during a dinner at home. "And finally I said, you know, I blew out the candle and I said, 'I think the lighter's in the box behind you.' And she reaches around and she pulls out the box and I've got just the ring sitting in there, and she pulls it out, and she looks at it, and she's like, 'It's a ring,' as if somebody had left it there some other time."
George went on to say that Amal just kept saying "Oh my god" and looking at the ring. "And we now know because there was a playlist, so we know how long it actually took, and it was like 25 minutes. Finally I literally said, 'Look, I hope the answer's yes, but I need an answer because I'm 52 and I could throw out my hip pretty soon.'" And that's the hilarious story of their engagement.
