The Ticket To Paradise star has come a long way since his bachelor days.
George’s former co-stars Nicole Kidman and Michele Pfeiffer each infamously bet him $10,000 that he would be married or have kids by the time he was 40.
They lost that bet and sent checks to the One Fine Day star, who returned them with notes reading ‘Double or nothing for another 10 years,’ according to The Independent.
George and Amal tied the knot in 2014 and welcomed their kids in 2017.
Now that they’re parents the passionate pair focus a lot of their time on family activities.
‘They take boat rides, do water spots, have a small group of friends in the area their age they have playdates with,’ according to the insider.
‘They also love painting and will have easels and supplies set up overlooking the water.’
The pandemic shutdown resulted in George and Amal re-evaluating their lives.

In a November 2021 interview on the WTF with Marc Maron podcast, the Catch-22 star explained, ‘We’re working a lot, both of us.’
‘She’s working a tremendous amount as well. It doesn’t mean we don’t do a job … but we also have to make sure we’re spending less time behind a computer or going on locations so that we can [be with our kids].’
The Hail, Caesar! actor also joked in an interview with W Magazine that his ‘hobby’ during the lockdown was cleaning up.
‘I’ll tell you what I’ve taken on as a hobby: two or three loads of laundry a day, dishes all f***ing day, because these kids are all slobs,’ he admitted.
‘Apparently, you have to wash your children every once in a while.’
