We always just kind of assumed that George Clooney would remain a bachelor forever, which made his engagement to the stunning Amal Alamuddin earlier this year all the more shocking.
Now the notoriously private actor has shown off his beautiful bride-to-be as they made their red carpet debut last night.
Looking the picture of a perfect couple, George and Amal turned heads as they attended elite charity event Celebrity Fight Night in Italy, which marks their first public appearance together.
Not only did they step out looking beautiful, the 53-year-old actor also confirmed that the two will be wed in Venice at some stage over the next two weeks.
We will be on high alert to see exactly when their big day takes place.
The news came as George took to the stage later on in the evening to accept an award, saying: "I met my lovely bride-to-be here in Italy, whom I will be marrying in a couple of weeks, in Venice of all places."
Speculation had been rife that the two will be getting married in September, with Amal being spotted at the Alexander McQueen headquarters, who were the masterminds behind Kate Middleton's wedding dress, and just last month the 36-year-old was reportedly spotted obtaining a wedding license at Kensington and Chelsea registry office.
We have to say that after the surprise of Brad Pitt's wedding last month, which was so top secret that even his BFF and Oceans 11 wingman George Clooney didn't know about it, it was nice of George to provide us with a two-week time frame.
We suppose that if we have to accept that the hunky actor isn't marrying us then we can't deny that he and Amal will make a beautiful husband and wife.
Congratulations to them both and we hope to see some wedding photos soon!
