Amal Clooney says she thought she'd be a spinster before she met George

Speaking at an event awarding George the American Film Institute’s Lifetime Achievement Award, Amal opened up about the beginnings of her time with George, and brought all the feels:

"I met George when I was 35 and starting to become quite resigned to the idea that I was going to be a spinster," said Amal, reports USA Today. But, after they spent more time together, all that changed.

Amal basically made everyone cry (the audience-and George) when she confessed her devotion. “He is the person who has my complete admiration, and also the person whose smile makes me melt every time. My love, what I have found with you is the great love that I always hoped existed,” she said.

The couple, who has been together for five years and married for nearly four, just celebrated the first birthdays of their twins, Ella and Alexander.

When George took the stage, he sent Amal some love, saying “I thought if you had a successful career that you weren't really going to be able to have one great love in your life. And then Amal walked in,” adding that she makes every day “special.”

This is far from the first time the couple has opened up about their devotion to one another. Earlier this year, Amal said that falling in love with George was “the most natural thing in the world,” reports People. And George had similar feelings leading up to proposing, according to US Weekly:

It’s not often that a Hollywood couple makes us believe in forever love…but here they are.
