George Clooney Weeps As Amal Tells Their Love Story At AFI Gala

Buckle up, buttercups, because this story is romantic AF.

On Thursday night, the American Film Institute honored George Clooney with the Life Achievement Award -- and Amal presented it to her husband with a heartfelt speech that brought him to tears

"I met George when I was 35 and starting to become quite resigned to the idea that I was going to be a spinster. Then we met and started hiding out in my London flat, and very soon it felt like, no matter what happened, I would never want to be with anyone else," she said. "I couldn’t sleep when we were apart, and I’m told that I would display a particular grin and head-tilt when reading his text messages or the letters he would hide in my bag. Five years later, none of that has changed. He is the person who has my complete admiration and also the person whose smile makes me melt every time. My love, what I have found with you is the great love I always hoped existed. And seeing you with our children, Ella and Alexander, is the greatest joy in my life."

While giving his acceptance speech, George continued the cuteness, saying: "I thought you couldn't have it all. I thought if you had a successful career you couldn't have one great love...then I met Amal."

Moral of the story: true love does exist.
