Alec Baldwin has got engaged to his younger lover Hilaria Thomas over the weekend.
Alec Baldwin, who turns 54 tomorrow, proposed to 28-year-old girlfriend Hilaria Thomas this weekend in Long Island, New York.
His representative told Us Weekly magazine: “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!”
Alec Baldwin and Hilaria Thomas have been a couple for almost a year and first appeared in public together at several bashes in New York in May 2011.

The actor was previously married to actress Kim Bassinger but the pair divorced in acrimony in 2002 after nine years of marriage and the pair was then embroiled in a bitter custody battle over their daughter Ireland, who is now 16.
Spanish-born Hilaria Thomas has not been married before.
Hilaria Thomas grew up between Boston and Spain, studying dance and history at NYU before becoming a yoga instructor.
In recent months Alec Baldwin has been sporting a noticeably trimmer physique, perhaps in a bid to appear more youthful alongside his younger partner.
Things had been getting more and more serious between Alec Baldwin and Hilaria Thomas for months, and the actor recently revealed he was considering having children with her.
Alec Baldwin said: “Have I thought about having more kids? Oh sure, that would be great, that would be heaven, that would be fantastic.”
The actor jokingly added: “As my friend said to me, <<When you have children, typically in a second marriage, when you’re older and you get married again to a woman who would have children, you must always remember that you make sure the children attend a college where the commencement ceremonies are held in a facility with a wheelchair accessible ramp>>.”
Last August Alec Baldwin sold his home in the Upper West Side of New York and moved in with Hilaria Thomas in the city’s SoHo district.
Roxy Music star Bryan Ferry and his younger girlfriend Amanda Sheppard married in a romantic island ceremony.
Bryan Ferry, 66, and Amanda Sheppard, 29, have tied the knot in a simple private ceremony at the stunning Amanyara luxury beach resort on the Turks and Caicos Islands last week on January 4th.
Amanda Sheppard wore an ethereal Lanvin white dress for the ceremony, while Bryan Ferry looked dapper in a dark blue suit by Anderson & Sheppard.
This is the second marriage for world-famous crooner Bryan Ferry, who was married to Lucy Helmore, with whom he has four children, for 21 years.
Bryan Ferry also famously dated Jerry Hall for two years before she left him for Mick Jagger.
Following his divorce from Lucy Helmore, Bryan Ferry began dating dancer Katie Turner, 35 years his junior.
During an interview last year, Bryan Ferry said he was “fortunate” to have snared himself a younger girlfriend.
He said: “The interesting thing is – and I don’t want to say the wrong thing in case I get into trouble with my girlfriend – you never really meet people your own age who aren’t married.
“I’m very fortunate that I work in music, where you’re in touch with different age groups, either the audience or people you work with.
“It does help. Obviously I’m not ageist!”

When Bryan Ferry and Amanda Sheppard first started dating back in 2009, many people doubted whether their relationship would last.
A source said at the time: “No one expected the fling to last, but it’s getting quite serious.
“They are a really lovely couple but there’s no talk of marriage just yet. I don’t think Bryan’s that keen on getting married again.”
However, a few months later Amanda Sheppard quit her job as a London PR girl after Bryan Ferry offered to financially support her, and moved in to the singer’s London home.
Amanda Sheppard was absent from Buckingham Palace last year, however, when Bryan Ferry collected his CBE from the Queen.
Bryan Ferry was instead accompanied by his sons Otis, 29, Isaac, 26, Tara, 21, and 20-year-old Merlin.
