Amal Clooney wasn’t worried about surname


Amal Clooney reportedly took her husband's name as "she's not precious about her surname'.

The British lawyer married Hollywood A-lister George last month in a lavish Italian ceremony, surrounded by family and famous friends. Formerly known as Amal Alamuddin, the beautiful brunette is now officially Mrs Clooney - something her friends say she had no hesitation doing. "A lot of people wondered if Amal would take George's name because she's such a strong, successful woman in her own right. But it's precisely because she's so secure in her own position that she's not precious about her surname. She loves George and is proud to be his wife. Why hide that?" an insider said to British magazine Grazia.

Now the couple have tied the knot, their time will have to be split between England and America, as well as factoring time out at George's luxury Italian villa based in Lake Como.

The double Oscar winner is also thought to have splashed the cash on a brand new pad for the pair in Britain.

"George is making big gestures too. He's spent a lot of money on an Oxfordshire home and they'll be spending a large part of the year in the UK from now on," the insider added.

It's been reported that Amal has been showering her new spouse with gifts, too. She apparently recently sent George handmade Murano cocktail glasses, which are the same as ones used at their wedding.

The present is said to have cost over £2,300 (R40 536.85) for a set of 12 glasses, as well as silk napkins and handmade napkin holders.

"Amal loves the idea of them having the same cocktail glasses that they used at the Cipriani Hotel in Venice," a source told E! News.
