It might be his 54th birthday today but Alec Baldwin has more than the passing of time to celebrate, as he has just got engaged to the 28 year-old yoga instructor, Hilaria Thomas. It'll be the second time that Alec has made the journey up the aisle. He was previously married to the actress Kim Basinger, with whom he has a teenage daughter.
Alec popped the question to Hilaria whilst they were away on a romantic break in Montauk, according to the New York Daily News and she was quick to say yes to the veteran Hollywood actor. The young yoga teacher has already been spotted taking one of her classes, wearing the impressive square cut diamond Cartier ring and Alec's brother Stephen Baldwin has revealed that he found out about the engagement when Alec sent him a picture via text message. Alec and Hilaria have been dating since last year; they made the relationship public in September 2011. "I kinda knew this was coming" says Stephen "and couldn't be happier for my big brother Alec and Hilaria." The text message that he received apparently showed a "petite female hand with a large beautiful ring on it."
Alec Baldwin has a number of movie releases in the pipeline, most notably the highly-anticipated Rock of Ages. The musical comedy is scheduled for release in June 2012 and also stars Tom Cruise, Catherine Zeta Jones, Russell Brand and PAUL GIAMATTI.
