George Clooney's rumored new romance with Amal Alamuddin appears to be heating up.
Almost six months after reports first surfaced that Clooney, 52, had found love with Alamuddin, a 36-year-old British-based lawyer, the pair were recently spotted enjoying a romantic vacation in Seychelles. According to a report from Us Weekly, they looked "appropriately breezy" (see the photo here) walking alongside the tropical island’s shore.
According to a report from People magazine Tuesday, the alleged couple also went on a safari in Tanzania while on their international getaway.
While Clooney has yet to confirm he is dating the Lebanese stunner, a source close to the rumored new "it" couple revealed that the “Gravity” actor is comfortable in his new relationship. “He does like having her around,” a source told Us Weekly, adding that Clooney and his alleged leading lady are already “close.”
Prior to their most recent night out (TMZ reports the duo was seen leaving the Carlyle Hotel in New York Tuesday night), Alamuddin went with Clooney to a viewing of his film “The Monuments Men” at the White House on Feb. 18. “The two certainly looked like more than just friends,” reads a People magazine report. According to one attendee, Harry Ettlinger, 88, one of the individuals who inspired the biographical war drama, they were getting cozy during the screening.

“They were holding hands,” said Ettlinger, according to a report from JustJared, adding, “I said to myself, ‘George, you did a lot of good things and you sure know how to pick them!'”
The couple were first spotted together at Berners Tavern in London in October, and they sparked relationship buzz after they were photographed leaving together in a taxi.
