George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin Get Marriage License


There's about to be a Mrs. Clooney.

ET has learned that George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin have taken out a marriage license in London. The 53-year-old actor and his fiancee, an international lawyer and activist, have taken the first legal steps required before the two tie the knot.

Clooney and his 36-year-old bride-to-be paid a visit to the Chelsea Register Office in London where they signed the legal notice of their intent to marry.

It was posted outside Chelsea Town Hall (a requirement for U.K. citizens). The announcement, in part, reads: "I Amal Ramzi Alamuddin of London, give you notice that I and George Timothy Clooney of Studio City, Los Angeles California…" After this, the notice is folded and the end of the statement is not visible.

The announcement also lists the couple's dates of birth, occupation -- Clooney is listed as "Actor and Director" while Alamuddin is listed as "Barrister" -- and their "condition," which refers to their current marital status. Alamuddin is listed as single, while Clooney's status is "previous marriage dissolved."
