As expected, Alec Baldwin, 54, married 28-year-old yoga instructor Hilaria Thomas in New York City on Saturday.
According to a rep for Baldwin, the couple tied the knot at St. Patrick's Old Cathedral in NYC, "sharing the occasion with family and friends inside the Cathedral," with "Alec warmly receiving congratulations from well-wishing fans on his way into the service."
Baldwin's bride wore a "silk magnolia trumpet Amsale gown with cap sleeves," the "30 Rock" actor's rep told CNN, while Baldwin himself was dapper in a Tom Ford suit.
According to the New York Times, Baldwin and Thomas met in February 2011 at a NYC restaurant called Pure Food and Wine.

Thomas, an NYU grad who was raised in Boston and Spain, recalled to the Times that she was "standing near the door with my friends when [Baldwin] walked up and took my hand and said, ‘I must know you.'"
Baldwin admitted to the paper that he didn't think that opening line was all that clever, but that when he saw his eventual bride-to-be, he "felt compelled" to make an introduction. That line led to a conversation between the two, and Baldwin handed Thomas his card. (Apparently, he "never [asks] women for their phone numbers.")
After a bit of hesitation on Thomas' part to give Baldwin a call, the two had their first date a few days after their initial meeting.
Baldwin told the Times that he "dated a lot of people" after he divorced his first wife, Kim Basinger, and thought carefully about what he desired going forward.
"I thought about it too much, I suppose," he said. "I wasn’t really ready to take that chance and to act until I met Hilaria. I was ready."
Thomas, he said, "was in no hurry," but "she was very mature and clear about what she wanted — to be married someday.”
And while the couple tweeted photos of their wedding rings on Sunday - with Hilaria having changed her account to reflect her married name - Baldwin's account appears to have since been deleted.
Hi my friend! I want to say that this post is awesome, nice written and include approximately all vital infos. I'd like to peer extra posts like this .
No matter what, it is never too late to live happily ever after. Congratulations to both of you.
now we get reports about reporters? next will we get reports about the reporters who report about reporters?
love alec baldwin.....leave him alone!....first wife is a nut-job....and as someone pointed out – if everyone who has ever said something in ager to their children had their feet held to the fire – heaven hep us!....
everyone knows his nut-job wife viciously leaked that phone message......CONGRATULATIONS ALEC & HILARIA....
FACT: FOR THE LOVE OF MONEY AND THE FOOLISHNESS OF NOT UNDERSTANDING "WHAT CRAZY IS".
Yikes! He looks like his own younger brother! Plastic surgery is fantastic.
Well another "hollywood wedding" - I hope they have a long and happy life together.
He is still hot, lost weight and he's finally got a companion and wife. The other psycho is at last out of the picture. Now he has his psycho daughter to deal with. However, the honeymoon is here for at least a few years. HOT DIGGITY, she is very pretty and he is still handsome.
He got a lot of flack from the liberal pc crowd with his rant to his daughter. If every daughter from the northeast taped their fathers phone calls it would sound exactly like alec baldwin
I am so sorry for your choice. I hope all of that money keeps you safe in the company of a psycho. I give it three years if she gets out alive.
Wait until that temper comes to the surface. You know she signed a prenup, because he wants to be sure he gets to keep his money, when she files for divorce. I give them 3 to 6 months.
He's 54 she's 28... High five Alec
"i must know you." honest, and to the point. good opening line, it seems to have worked!
Congratulations to the newlyweds. Don't let anyone get between you two and put each other first. Also on disagreements think is it worth losing a kiss goodnight? Have a good one Alex and Hilaria.
Rich guys are such suckers for bendy women.........
Love is difficult to find in this demanding, hectic world we live in...it doesn't matter where you find it, just that you recognize it when it's standing in front of you! Best wishes to Alec and his lovely bride. Have fun and enjoy the love!
Hello. Everyone is cordially invited to visit – thestarofkaduri.com
i mean really..who the eff cares about this big mouth
he has anger management issues. less then 3 years.
Anger is just a manifestation of underlying stress ( probably his old wife ) People should not be painted in a broad stroke . Let this couple enjoy the moment .
I'm sure that fact that Baldwin is famous AND rich had no influence over her decision to date and marry him. After all, it is perfectly normal for a sprite 28 year old to date and marry someone that could be their grandfather....
How I envy. She will reeneergize him and with her Yoga moves I envy him. Morer power to him. As a senior I envy him....They can make a good life together. .Women on ground , piece on earth..She looks great,
Congratulations Alec and Hilaria.
Thank You Patty M. I love you! Even though, I am married.
– Alec Baldwin
No thank you ! Alac B .Someday I will be a craddle robber too!
Stephen b -
She looks old for 28.
AHHHH TRUE LOVE. lol now he cant really think this will last. Why marry when u can just funk and buy her things.? I dont get it. Marriage is something that should b real. And we all KNOW this wont last.
What was wrong with the first wife!
They will get divorced as does most of the human race.
Hope they're happy! Age is just a number! I'm 18 years younger than my man. So, good for them both......hope it lasts! Everyone deserves to be happy!
Why does CNN think anyone cares about this fool?
Because they know people, like you, will be interested. You're here, aren't you, genius?
Well done Mr. Baldwin, well done.
Thanks JC. My pleasure buddy.
too much press exposure from baldwin lately. He needs to go away for a while
I guess she likes old men with money. He ought to act his age. This is gross.
Her first name is latin for a species of grass. Interesting, makes for a good yoga instructor.
I must know you? What a cheese ball pick up line. Why on earth would she marry this psycho? I give it a year and I'm being kind. BTW, how did they get married in a Catholic church? Wasn't he divorced from Kim Bassinger? Alec Baldwin is a DISGUSTING thoughtless little PIG-YUCK YUCK AND YUCK!!!
He married his daughter? Sick!
Not a Baldwin fan ...
Was Jack Walsh at their wedding?
How long before he calls her "a disgusting little pig"?
Moments after the wedding, alec pushed the camera over....
Go lucky alex hope you don't screw this one up! & congraduation hilarie !
