George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin have been congratulated on their engagement by the law firm she works for.

The 'Monuments Men' actor - who has been dating the human rights lawyer since late last year - has yet to comment on the reports that he's got betrothed to the British human rights lawyer but Doughty Street Chambers, the legal company that she is employed by, appear to have confirmed the news with a statement wishing the happy couple their best.

A statement from the firm said: ''The barristers and staff of Doughty Street Chambers offer their best wishes and congratulations to Ms. Amal Alamuddin, a member of Chambers, and Mr. George Clooney on their engagement to be married.''

The couple were first linked after a dinner date in October and their romance has been getting increasingly more serious in recent months.

The 36-year-old brunette first fuelled rumours George had proposed when she was spotted showing off a diamond sparkler on her ring finger as they indulged in sushi at Nobu in Malibu last Thursday (24.04.14).

The 52 -year-old actor previously claimed he'd never get married again following his split from ex-wife Talia Balsam and is famed for dating a string of beautiful women including LISA SNOWDON, Stacy Keibler and Elisabetta Canalis.
