London: Elisabetta Canalis expressed her desire to get married with her boyfriend Hollywood superstar George Clooney as she is a "firm believer in marriage".

The 50-year-old actor, who has been dating the Italian TV presenter and model for over two years, had earlier vowed never to tie the knot after his first marriage to actress Talia Balsam ended in divorce in 1993.

But Canalis, 32, who feels Clooney is her ideal man, expressed her desire to marry some day, reported Contact music.

"I am very happy at the moment - thanks to my man and my fairytale is continuing. We are a couple that never gets bored.

"I am a firm believer in marriage, in the future I will be married, but for the time being I am happy as I am. I don't need anything to confirm how happy I am. My maternal instinct has not kicked in yet but my mother says when it does, it will be like a lightening bolt," said Canalis.

The Italian beauty has also revealed the secret to her fabulous figure.

“I don't always have the stomach muscles I have and I get cellulite as well like everyone else. I stay fit and I exercise, I go horse riding and I have discovered Asian food with rice and soya which keeps you in shape," added Canalis.
