George Clooney’s engagement to Amal Alamuddin is now real: His parents officially approve of their son’s soon-to-be wife! And not only do they approve, but they couldn’t be happier that George has (finally) decided to take this important step with someone so special.

“We’re thrilled,” Nick Clooney, George’s father, told Us Magazine. “We have had an opportunity to interact with this wonderful young woman and these are two great people. We are thrilled at their decision and we hope for them the best.”

News of George and Amal’s engagement first broke over the weekend before it was confirmed Monday by Amal’s colleagues. George and Amal, a British attorney, are predictably trying to keep things low-key, but how could something as huge as George Clooney getting married ever be low-key?!

Sources close to the couple say they’re not surprised that George decided to settle down with Amal. In fact, his friends and family have seen it coming.

“He likes a woman with brains and class,” a Clooney insider says. “She’s the full package… he’s happy and found his ideal match. He didn’t settle, so good for him.”

If only George was the reality show type. What we wouldn’t do for a wedding special!

Congratulations, George and Amal!
