The gossip gods giveth and the gossip gods taketh away. Just as we announced that Maroon 5 heartthrob Adam Levine is single, we discovered that another Hollywood hunk is now off the market. We’re talking, of course, about Alec Baldwin. Sorry, ladies!
The 30 Rock star popped the question on Saturday to his girlfriend, yoga instructor Hilaria Thomas, while the two were visiting Long Island. “Yes, it’s true! Alec proposed to Hilaria this weekend and we’re all excited for the newly engaged couple,” Alec’s rep told People this afternoon. “Alec’s birthday is tomorrow. Great way to celebrate!” Definitely! We can’t think of a better way to turn 54 than to get engaged to a 28-year-old. Baldwin will never age.
The duo met a dinner in early 2011, and became public that September. Since then, they’ve pushed social media to gooey new heights with mushy tweets proclaiming their love. “All of a sudden I found myself where I was available to have something more real in my life,” Baldwin said in an interview with the Daily Beast last fall. “And now I’m going to move in with her. It’s the most serious thing, I guess, I’ve had in a long, long time.” Awww! It looks like Hilaria is just the calming force the notoriously short-tempered Alec needs. Congrats, you two! We’ll celebrate with a bowl of Schweddy Balls!
