George Clooney's family were ''surprised'' when he got engaged. The Monuments Men
actor - who famously declared he would never marry again - proposed to lawyer Amal Alamuddin in April, and his relatives were as shocked as his fans about the happy news. George's cousin Miguel Ferrer - who is the son of Oscar-winning actor José Ferrer and singer Rosemary Clooney - told France's Tele Star magazine
: ''At first the family was surprised to learn the happy [engagement] news.'' The 59-year-old actor went on to praise Amal as a ''wonderful woman'' but refused to be drawn
on the details of their wedding, which is expected to take place in September. He said: ''I don't know if I can tell you a lot about this marriage. Obviously I'll be there!''
