George Clooney's fiancee's law firm has pretty much confirmed the rumors that nearly exploded the Internet last weekend (or would have, if not for Donald Sterling) that he's engaged to Amal Alamuddin

Alamuddin's company released a statement Monday congratulating the happy couple, according to TMZ.

"The barristers and staff of Doughty Street Chambers offer their best wishes and congratulations to Ms Amal Alamuddin, a member of Chambers, and Mr George Clooney on their engagement to be married."

So much for attorney-client privilege.

Alamuddin is an international lawyer who has represented some big names, including Julian Assange.

She might already be sending out resumes.

Clooney -- who is notoriously private and has seemingly been adverse to longtime romantic commitments -- and Alamuddin dined at Nobu on Thursday in Malibu, where she was sporting what onlookers said was a big ring. On her finger and everything.

So the rumors started and the "insiders" started talking and the snowball started rolling.
