Nina Bruce Warren (mother) – Nina is the extremely beautiful mother of the star actor. She used to be a runner up for Miss Kentucky. She met George’s father in Ohio when she appeared in a beauty pageant where Nick was on the judging panel.
Nick Clooney (father) – He is a journalist, game and talk show host and unlike his son has enjoyed a great marriage with Warren. They have been married for over five decades and renewed their vows again in 2007. The Clooney parents were responsible for jointly raising their children and Nick admits that he has always been proud of his son. He joked once that he always sings the praises of the highly successful George because he is his retirement plan. Nick is the brother of famous singer Rosemary Clooney.
Adelia Clooney (elder sister from same parents) – She is the older sibling to one of the sexiest men alive. She works in payroll and accounting and lives in Kentucky with her family a few blocks from her parents. Ada, as she is fondly called by her friends, is currently a single mum to two kids; Allison and Nicholas as she lost her artist husband Norman Zeidler years back to a heart attack. At some point in her life, she considered being an actress, she had her own fantasies of being a famous Hollywood member but Adelia admits that her skin was never though enough for it. She is quite content with her not-so-rich life away from the spotlight. As much as she is different from George, they both share a great work ethic and are closely knit.
Amal Clooney (spouse) – Since her wedding to George, the beautiful Amal has become a household name. She is a human rights lawyer and activist that has been involved in some of the world’s most iconic human rights cases. She was born in Beirut as Amal Alamuddin to parents with British and Lebanese descents.
In April 2014, she was engaged to one of the most eligible bachelors in Hollywood and this put the skilled lawyer on the spotlight. Some months after their engagement, they held their high-profile wedding in Venice’s City Hall and since have launched a charity foundation for Justice.
According to Nick and Nina (George’s parents), they had given up hope that their son could ever father a child but not until they met Amal, the London-based barrister. Immediately they were introduced to their daughter-in-law-to-be, they knew she was going to change their son’s life. Thanks to the 16-years younger Amal, handsome George is now a father to two lovely kids
