George Clooney sure seems to be getting the better end of the bargain in his engagement to human rights attorney Amal Alamuddin. Since agreeing to stick with the 53-year-old Oscar winner until death do they part, Alamuddin, 36, has sacrificed her privacy and become fair game for the paparazzi. She and her honkin' engagement ring are now being trailed around London, a situation that's likely to grow worse amid speculation that Clooney hopes to lock down the gorgeous lawyer sooner rather than later.
"September 12 is the date they are aiming for," alleges a source. "Everyone thinks they will marry in Lake Como, where George owns a beautiful home, but Amal feels that is too public. They are looking to host a small wedding in an Italian village, where they can control the photographers. But they haven't decided yet."
Wherever they tie the knot, says the spy, "They will then have big parties for her relatives in Lebanon and London."
Us Weekly echoes the September timeline, with an insider adding that Clooney would marry Alamuddin "today if he could, but he wants to give her a dream wedding. It is her first, and he wants it to be his last!"
