Alec Baldwin and Hilaria Thomas are engaged! Baldwin of course had one very famous marriage in the 90s with actress Kim Basinger, from which they have child together, however for Thomas - who at 28 years-old is by far Baldwin's junior of some 25 years - it will be her marriage. An enthusiastic rep of Baldwin's confirmed the news to E! Online, stating "Yes, it's true. 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!"
Lovely stuff; the pair have often been open with their love of each other on microblogging site Twitter, though Baldwin's care and protection of his new fiancee had to go beyond simple flirtations last month when a stalker started sending messages of a threatening nature to yoga instructor Thomas. Baldwin directed his substantial amount of followers to the stalker's account urging them to leave their own messages for them. The plan worked and the stalker has since deleted their account.
Previously, Baldwin was married to Basinger in 1993 having met her when they co-starred in the 1990 movie 'The Marrying Man.' Their daughter Ireland was born in 1995 however things turned sour towards the end of the decade and they announced that they were filing for divorce in 2001. Here's hoping he'll find better luck this time round.
