And after the influx of A-list break-ups back in 2016 (we're looking at you, Brangelina), the couple’s love story is the only thing that's keeping our hopes of fate alive.

And following the exciting news that Amal and George have welcomed twins, Grazia reflects on their whirlwind relationship...

When George And Amal First Met - September, 2013

This is where the love story begins. Amal Alamuddin met George Clooney at a charity dinner. The actors father, Nick Clooney, explained to People: "[My wife] Nina and I were actually the ones who answered the door when Amal came in. She introduced herself to us and we talked. She was obviously very charming, gorgeous and so clearly accomplished, but by the time we had supper that night, it was clear there was a kindness to her and an inclusiveness."

And it was love at first sight, as his father continued: "I really think by the time that first [meeting] was over, his and her fates were sealed, both of them. She was so remarkable and he was so remarkable around her."
