At the virtual launch of her legal book, The Right to a Fair Trial in International Law published with fellow professor Philippa Webb, Amal Clooney gushed about her "wonderfully encouraging and inspiring" husband.

Amal, who shares twins Ella and Alexander with George Clooney, said at the launch that she wants to thank her husband, reports E! News, "especially since I was always so sure that this was 'the very last drafting session,' over and over again".

"The book drafting took place at all his filming locations, and throughout the process, he was not only patient but so wonderfully encouraging and inspiring," she said. "I really did not need another example of how amazing he is but this process provided one."

She added: "I think he's watching this downstairs in the kitchen, so I just want to say 'Thank you.' For my side, I can promise for the sake of our marriage that I will never do this again."

The actor, who's been promoting his new Netflix film, The Midnight Sky, also recently opened up about his marriage to the Columbia Law School Professor telling CBS Sunday Morning: "Having Amal in my life changed everything for me. It was the first time that everything that she did and everything about her was infinitely more important than anything about me."
