Alec Baldwin is engaged to Hilaria Thomas

As the Huffington Post reports and Baldwin has confirmed on Twitter, the “30 Rock” star proposed to girlfriend Hilaria Thomas over the weekend. Baldwin, who celebrates his 54th birthday tomorrow, and Thomas, a 28-year-old yoga instructor and yoga studio owner, began dating about a year ago. The marriage is Thomas’s first and Baldwin’s second; he famously wed his “Marrying Man” co-star Kim Basinger in 1993 and divorced her in a very public and acrimonious split that was finalized in 2002.

“Congrats to my longtime friend @alecbaldwin and his wonderful bride to be @hilariathomas,” wrote Matthew Hiltzik, a media consultant who reps Baldwin, on Twitter. “Congrats on his engagement.” That tweet was retweeted by the man who plays Jack Donaughy, who has otherwise remained mum on details about the impending nuptials.

Meanwhile, Ireland Baldwin, the actor’s daughter from his marriage to Basinger, happily tweeted her congratulations to the affianced couple this afternoon.

“Congratulations to @AlecBaldwin [and] @hilariathomas on getting engaged!” wrote the 16-year-old. “Love you guys.”

Let’s all hope this marriage goes much more smoothly than the accidental nuptials of Don­aghy and Liz Lemon. That bar certainly should be easy enough to exceed.

When she isn’t at a movie theater or writing about movies, Jen Chaney is ... um ... probably at home, watching a movie.
