George Clooney’s soon to be mother-in-law visited the actor’s $42 million Italian holiday villa this week, two months after he became engaged to Amal Alamuddin.
Baria Alamuddin, 66, was photographed looking in high spirits on arrival in Lake Como, Italy, according to the Daily Mail.
Amal is one of four children, along with Baria’s other daughter Tala and sons Samer and Ziad.
Baria is the foreign editor of Al-Hayat, a popular Arab newspaper. She has appeared numerous times as an expert on Middle Eastern affairs on CNN, CNBC, the BBC and Sky News.
Mrs. Alamuddin stands out as a networking powerhouse and tireless socialite. Abdul Wahab Badrakhan, a former deputy editor in chief for Al-Hayat and who worked with Bariaa until 2006, previously described her to Al Arabiya News as a juggernaut networker, with direct access to leaders from the Arab world to Pakistan to Brussels.
For her part, George Clooney’s mother, Nina, 74, has already met her daughter-in-law to be and has previously said: ‘You can say I’m extremely happy. Amal’s a lovely girl. I like her very much.’
