Alec Baldwin's new wife Hilaria feared her friend had jeopardised a lucrative wedding photo deal with a top U.S. magazine after the pal captured a snap of the couple's first dance on her cell phone.
Yoga teacher Hilaria Thomas exchanged vows with the 30 Rock star last month (Jun12), and the pair signed a contract with People magazine editors giving them exclusive rights to the pictures from their nuptials.
However, the new bride admits she was sent into a panic after one female friend flouted a strict no camera policy at the reception and took a sneaky snap of the newlyweds enjoying their first dance as man and wife.
The new Mrs. Alec Baldwin says, "She wasn't supposed to (take pictures) and I was really mad at her! We had a no camera rule. I was very happy but she texted it to me and I was like, 'Oh my god, you can't do this. We signed something with People magazine, you can't do this.'"
The pal offered to immediately delete the photo, but Thomas admits she secretly loved the snap and wanted to keep it for herself.
She adds, "I was like, 'No, no, let me keep this!'"
The People magazine feature was published as planned soon after the wedding.
