George Clooney says he is lucky to have found Amal Alamuddin.

The hunky actor proposed to the beautiful lawyer and activist engaged in April and while he may be a Hollywood superstar, he believes he is the fortunate one in their relationship.

He told Variety: ''I'm marrying up.''

The couple, who got engaged earlier this year, are expected to get married in September near Lake Como in Italy where George owns a home.

And it was recently reported that he wants to hire Lana Del Rey to sing at his wedding because his fiancee is such a big fan.

A source revealed: ''Amal is a massive fan of Lana's, which has made George determined to make this happen.

''He contacted Lana's people to see if she'll perform at their wedding in Italy.''

The 28-year-old singer sang at the extravagant nuptials of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West in May, and George is now said to be willing to splash out on her services to please his future wife.

The source added: ''Of course, unlike Kimye, George doesn't know her personally so he can expect to pay a hefty fee.

''But money is no object. He'll pay Lana whatever she wants to make his wife-to-be-happy.''

However, 'The Monuments Men' star may need to consider another wedding singer, as Lana hasn't yet confirmed whether she's willing to take the job as she is worried about her reputation.

A source told the Daily Star newspaper: ''Lana hasn't told the couple yet whether or not she'll be able to perform. But she's wondering whether it might look tacky to sing at two of the most high-profile celebrity weddings of the year.''
