Alec Baldwin Is Engaged to a 28-Year-Old Yoga Teacher

Alec BaldwinIn due time, Alec Baldwin, 53, will conquer all worlds. Film, television, politics. And now, marriage … again. The celebrated 30 Rock star and air travel delayer is now officially engaged to his girlfriend, Hilaria Thomas, 28.

“Yes, it’s true!” Baldwin’s rep tells “Alec proposed to Hilaria this weekend and we’re all excited for the newly engaged couple. Alec’s birthday is tomorrow—great way to celebrate!”

In January of 2012, Baldwin professed his desire to have more children (he already has a 17-year-old daughter named Ireland from his previous marriage to Kim Basinger), something that likely provoked the pair’s decision to wed. And while his NBC sitcom 30 Rock is known for its “art imitating life” philosophy of deriving story lines from its cast members’ actual lives, his engagement seems to be an example of the reverse (in the the fifth season, Baldwin’s character married a much younger Elizabeth Banks and had a baby girl). Let’s just hope that the future Mrs. Baldwin isn’t planning on any trips to North Korea anytime soon

Thomas was born in Mallorca, Spain, and is a co-owner of and instructor at the Yoga Viga studio in New York City. Like Baldwin, she is a graduate of New York University — but, this will be her first marriage.

Staff editor Michael Arbeiter’s natural state of being can best be described as “mild panic attack.” His earliest memories of growing up in Queens, New York, involve nighttime conversations with a voice from his bedroom wall (the jury’s still out on what that was all about) and a love for classic television that spawned from the very first time he was allowed to watch “The Munsters.” Attending college at SUNY Binghamton, a 20-year-old Michael learned two things: that he could center his future on this love for TV and movies, and that dragons never actually existed — he was kind of late in the game on that one.
