Who is Amal Alamuddin? Here is biographical information on the Arab beauty's career, educational background, ethnicity and religion, and relationship with George Clooney. We also answer the question people want to know: is she Muslim?


Successful Career:

In addition to being the reported fiancée of George Clooney, Amal Alamuddin is a highly successful woman with an emphasis on criminal and international law. She also specializes in human rights cases. Her representation has been utilized in domestic courts as well as the European Court of Human Rights and the International Court of Justice.

Alamuddin is also a bureaucratic adviser for topics on international law. In addition she has served on UN commissions and has been an adviser to Kofi Annan. Alamuddin is a lecturer on international law topics at American and European universities. These are just a few of Alamuddin's achievements.

Alamuddin served as an editor of The Law and Practice of the Special Tribunal for Lebanon, a book with pro-Palestinian sentiment. She has also authored articles and excerpts on criminal law for publications of the Oxford University Press.


Distinguished Education:

Alamuddin has a Bachelor's degree in Law from St. Hugh's College at Oxford University. (St. Hugh's was founded by the great-niece of romantic poet William Wordsworth).

She has a law degree from NYU School of Law.


Ethnicity and Religion:

Alamuddin was born in Beirut, Lebanon. She is of Lebanese descent and is a member of the Druze religion. So is she Muslim? Druze is an ancient offshoot of Islam. People of the Druze faith consider themselves to be followers of the core of Islamic doctrine. Depending upon the source, traditional Muslims might or might not consider the Druze to actually be Muslim. But Alamuddin is a true Middle Eastern beauty, having brown-black hair, brown eyes, and being an estimated 5' 7" tall and athletically slim.

So what kind of wives do Arab women make? Although no one can make a universal claim, Arab women are known for being very pro-marriage, great cooks, and loyal family members. But something tells me Alamuddin and Clooney have enough money to have their own in-house chef.


Relationship with George Clooney:

Alamuddin, 36, and Clooney, 52, are reportedly engaged. How did they meet? No one knows the exact specifics, but they were first seen going to dinner in October of 2013. Clooney and Alamuddin then went to a White House event together. If this reported engagement pans out, it would be the first marriage for Alamuddin, and the second for George Clooney.

Clooney's first wife was Talia Balsam. Balsam is now married to John Slattery, who played Gabrielle's Mayor-of-Fairview fiancé on Desperate Housewives, and was also Olivia's ex in the indie film hit The Station Agent.

Alamuddin was never in the Hollywood limelight before and was only known in any public sense for her work as an attorney. She did have a Twitter account but it has reportedly been deleted.

Neither Alamuddin nor Clooney have any children. Aladmuddin still is of the age to have kids, so maybe there will be a brown-haired, brown-eyed kid in their future, since they both share these features.


Is this a May-December Relationship?

Since Clooney is 52 to Alamuddin's 36, does this qualify as a May-December relationship. Well, not quite. There is a 16-year difference between them, which is perhaps closer to a June-October relationship!

It's Time to Get Married!

Clooney has dated so many women in the past, but has not had a wedding ring on anyone's finger for about 20 years. His past relationships include a long list of ladies: Elisabetta Canalis, Stacy Keibler, Monika Jakisic, Sarah Larson, Mariella Frostrup, Krista Allen, Jennifer Siebel Newsom, Lisa Snowdon, Traylor Howard, Lucy Liu, Céline Balitran, Karen Duffy, Kimberly Russell, Vendela, Elizabeth Daily, and Kelly Preston.

We would think this distinguished older man would like a wife by his side at this point. We hope this time it's for real and that Clooney and Alamuddin tie the knot and live happily ever after!
