Ever since Amal Clooney stepped out wearing a cream Stella McCartney trouser suit in Venice for her civil service wedding to George Clooney in 2014, we've been wondering how the Academy-Award winning actor bagged such a badass, beautiful and humble human rights lawyer.

However, in a recent interview with David Letterman on The Late Show, the 56-year-old – who welcomed twins, Ella and Alexander, with his wife last summer – has revealed how he first started dating Amal, and it's a scene straight out of a romance novel.

According to PopSugar, the Ocean's Eleven actor said: 'We met in Lake Como. She was a friend of a friend who came to visit and then I chased her for many months, calling and writing, those kinds of things.'

An Italian meet-cute and love letters from a Hollywood actor, could it get any better?

After the pair tied the knot – at a wedding attended by the likes of Emily Blunt and Matt Damon – the new father up to Ellen DeGeneres on her talk show and revealed it took six months into their relationship before he thought about popping the question to his 39-year-old wife.

Explaining the engagement, he said: 'I plotted the whole thing out. I had the ring hidden behind her. I had music playing.

'Everything was planned out and I'd cooked dinner. And she comes in, and she's just come back from London, and she's all dressed up. Usually she's dressed up and and now she's like, well maybe we'll just order in. And I go, no I made dinner,' he added.

Recalling the night, he then noted his wife went to wash the dishes, which gave him time to blow out the candles and ask her to grab the lighter in the box behind her.

'She reached out, she pulled 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',' he said, matter of factly.

'I got down on my knee and said 'I couldn't imagine spending the rest of my life without you,' he added, revealing he knows it took exactly 25 minutes to propose to Amal because that's how long the playlist lasted in the background.

'I literally said, 'look I hope the answer is 'yes' because I need an answer, I'm 52-years-old and I could throw my hip out soon if I don't get an answer,' he joked.

Well, from the looks of it, it seemed to have worked out pretty well for the actor.

During an interview with the Associated Press last year, the actor opened up about how his twins were already showing different character traits at home.

In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, the Suburbicon star explained - with the help of his co-star and BFF Matt Damon: 'They start out with a personality right off the bat. [Alexander] is a thug already. You saw him. He's a moose! Literally, he just sits and he eats.'

Matt jokingly added, 'he looks like he could bounce right now, some place in Hollywood', while George said he looks like he's 'checking IDs on the way into the nursery'.

Meanwhile, Ella sounds like she's identical to her human rights lawyer mother.

'She's very elegant, and all eyes. She looks like Amal, thank God,' he gushed.

The Clooneys are just too cute right now.
