George Clooney's Engagement to Amal Alamuddin "Irked" Ex-Girlfriend Stacy Keibler
Did Stacy Keibler get played by Hollywood's most infamous playboy? George Clooney's April 22 proposal to British human rights attorney Amal Alamuddin was a surprise to many, including the Gravity actor's ex-girlfriend, who once thought she'd be the one saying "I do" to the longtime bachelor.
A source reveals in the new issue of Us Weekly that Keibler, 34, was "irked" by her ex's engagement last month. "When George and Stacy got together, he told her she would be the one he'd marry—and that they could have kids," the insider tells Us of the former model, who dated Clooney, 52, for two years before their split in July 2013.
Alas, that vision of domestic bliss never came to be for the couple. But all's well that ends well—Keibler married businessman Jared Pobre in March and is now expecting the couple's first child, a baby girl, later this year. And a pal insists there's no bad blood between her and Clooney.
"Stacy's happy for George," the second insider tells Us. "She is glad he was able to find true love."
She's not the only one. Clooney's dad, broadcaster Nick Clooney, said in a statement to Us that he and his wife, Nina, are "thrilled" to welcome Alamuddin, 36, into their family. "We have had an opportunity to interact with this wonderful young woman and these are two great people," he told Us. "We are thrilled at their decision."
