Actor George Clooney's cousin Miguel Ferrer says that his family was surprised to learn that George had got engaged to Amal Alamuddin.
The Monuments Men actor, who once declared he would never marry again, proposed to the lawyer in April, and his relatives were as shocked as his fans about the news, reports contactmusic.com.
"At first the family was surprised to learn the happy (engagement) news," Miguel was quoted as saying by Tele Star magazine.
The wedding is expected to take place in September.
