Update (September 3, 2014):
There’s no baby on the way for George and Amal, the actor’s rep tells E! Online. Darn you wind off Lake Como!
Original story (August 13, 2014):
When it comes to George Clooney, the only thing that would surprise us more than the news he got engaged would be that he’s becoming a dad too. That, however, is the latest scuttlebutt as reported over on TMZ, where two snaps from a recent romantic dinner between George and his wife-to-be, Amal Alamuddin, have people on big time stork alert.
The two were seen locking lips as they dined in Lake Como, Italy, aka George’s favorite European haunt. Another photo from their scenic vacation showed Amal getting onto a boat and, some say, sporting a baby bump under her red and white dress sundress. Looking at the picture, we’re not 100 percent sold on the claims. As TMZ rightly points out, it “could just be the wind.”
We’d be surprised if 53-year-old George added “father” to his already new role of “fiancé.” This is the man, after all, who seemed completely committed to his bachelorhood until meeting Amal.
And as for 36-year-old Amal, the high-powered international lawyer already has so much on her plate that she reportedly turned down an offer from the United Nations to sit on a commission reviewing possible war crimes in Gaza. So yeah, somehow motherhood doesn’t sound like it’s on the docket right now either.
