The news out of Hollywood today, actress Ellen Barkin is in LOVE and ENGAGED and just in time for Valentine’s Day!
Could this getting any better? They met at George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin wedding and now she is engaged to Alamuddin’s colleague, British barrister and Queen’s counsel Ben Emmerson.
A little birdie told Us “She is so happy and in love again. Ellen met him at George and Amal’s wedding and they totally hit it off. It happened quickly but she’s totally fallen for him and flies to see him all the time. He is really handsome and smart and charming and swept her off her feet.”
Emmerson specializes in human rights law, public international law, and international crime law, among a bevy of other accolades — the source tells Us that Barkin, 60, fell in love with the 51-year-old’s charm.
Barkin was previously married to Gabriel Byrne, with whom she shares two kids, from 1988 to 1999, and to Ronald O. Perelman from 2000 to 2006.
We love, love!
