More than a decade of romance. Alec Baldwin met wife Hilaria Baldwin (née Thomas) in 2011 and has been by his side ever since.
The two met by chance at a restaurant in New York City in February of the same year.
“I hiked Pure Food and Wine in Irving Place on an unseasonably warm February evening,” he said Saturday night live Actor recalled eight years after they first met via Instagram. “My friend, [Brendan O’Connell] and I sat down (outside!) and as I turned left I saw a woman who would change my life. Fully. 8 years today. Thank you for everything you gave me. You are a gift.”
In a joint interview the following year, they revealed that the 30 rocks Alum approached the yoga teacher and didn’t ask for her number. Instead, he gave her his card and told her to call him.
“I was standing near the door with my friends when he walked up to me, took my hand and said, ‘I must know you,'” Hilaria said The New York Times in July 2012. After his wife-to-be worked up the courage to call him, she got his voicemail. They started dating a few days later — and it didn’t take long for sparks to fly. The two were officially dating in the spring and moved in together within a few months.
Their 26-year age difference (he was born in 1958 while she was born in 1984) was initially a big concern for the Mom Brain podcast host, but the filmmaker immediately noticed their maturity — especially when she made it very clear what she is wanted out of a relationship.
“While she was in no rush, she was very grown up and clear about what she wanted — to get married one day,” he recalled.
Alec was previously married Kim Basinger for almost 20 years until they divorced in 2002. In 1995, the couple welcomed a daughter Ireland Baldwin.
Hilaria, who shares six children with her husband, revealed in April 2019 that she is stepmother to Alec’s eldest daughter.
“Sometimes my language about my biological children doesn’t include them. Because I didn’t give birth to her and I never want to disregard the fact that she has a wonderful mother,” the fitness guru shared via Instagram, amid criticism for not speaking much about Ireland. “But that will never take away from how much I love her, need her in my life and think she’s one of the best things that has ever happened to me. Please don’t seek trouble where there is none.”
