Our jaws literally hit the floor when we heard that our favorite eternal bachelor, George Clooney, was single no more, after proposing to his new-time girlfriend, Amal Alamuddin last week. We never thought we'd see the day where our favorite commitment-phobe would finally settle down, after he famously swore we'd never see him walk down the aisle again.

Before Clooney was known for his bevy of beauties as much as his acting, he was actually a married man. The actor, who turns 53 today, was briefly married to Talia Balsam, decades ago.

But alas, maybe it was timing, or maybe it was fate, even Clooney has found his true love, which just goes to show there's someone out there for all of us. We're not sure when he plans to tie the knot, but he won't be the first post 50 to settle down and prove that really great things can happen -- even late in the game.
