"I'm always right and he's always wrong," she joked. "He's very smart. Sometimes. No, but I think humour, we are hot for each other and that helps too. There's nothing wrong with that. I'm not ashamed of that."

Ali shared the throwback and called George her "main squeeze"

Ali reiterated those feelings in an article for Town & Country when she said that somehow being content in your relationship has become taboo.

George and Ali are still very much in love

George then chimed in: "And we are here today!"
