Dad Says He is Thrilled with the Engagement of His Son George Clooney

April 29, 2014 George Clooney, Nick Clooney, Talia Balsam

George Clooney is over the moon with his recent engagement with his attorney girlfriend of barely few months. But seems like his family is even happier about this news.

"We are very pleased," Clooney's father, veteran broadcaster Nick Clooney, tells E! News. "We like Amal and we are very excited for our family and thrilled for them."

Doughty Street Chambers, Alamuddin's law firm released a statement congratulating the 36-year-old Oxford-educated beauty.

"They are both wonderful people and hope they have a terrific life ahead of them," the elder Clooney continued. "This is their day. This is George and Amal's time."

This will be George Clooneys second marriage after his first to Talia Balsam which lasted from 1989 until 1993.

In an interview on fatherís day, Georgeís father Nick Clooney said, "I knew that he would in one way or another end up in a public business," the now 80-year-old newsman and humanitarian said last June. "That was just in the cards. He was just too gregarious and too talented and too funny not to be in the business. If athletics was the way that went, that would be great. I, naturally, was hoping it would be broadcasting. I was hoping it would be news. He has a wonderful sense of current events.

"I'm very proud the way he handles things and how he thinks. I'm very proud of his priorities. I'm a very lucky dad."
