Alec Baldwin liked it so much he put a ring on it! The 53-year-old "30 Rock" star is engaged to 27-year-old girlfriend Hilaria Thomas, his rep confirms to E! News.
"Yes, it's true," the actor's rep said. "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!"
This will be the first marriage for Thomas and the second for Baldwin, who divorced Kim Basinger in 2002.
Baldwin and Thomas, a yoga instructor, frequently take their flirtation to Twitter. Last month, however, the social networking site became problematic for Thomas. An alleged stalker was sending harassing messages to her, and Baldwin quickly intervened.
He put @scarfacemadam on blast, saying that the individual "has entered the twitter-verse ONLY to harass my girlfriend" in a way "that is borderline threatening." So he asked his followers to "go to her address, and read just a few of her posts, and give her your notice of her behavior."
His tactics worked, and the alleged harasser deleted his/her profile. Baldwin also removed his tweets calling for action against Thomas' detractor.
The actor isn't completely blameless when it comes to getting in trouble with technology, though: this past December, he was kicked off an American Airlines flight when he refused to turn off his cell phone "when asked to do so at the appropriate time." Baldwin's excuse? He was simply engrossed in a game of Zynga's Words With Friends!
Well, we're glad that digital drama is behind these two! Think they'll live-tweet the wedding?
