Happy news for actor Alec Baldwin — not only is it his birthday. He’s engaged! The “30 Rock” star recently popped the question to his girlfriend, Hilaria Thomas.

Baldwin, 54, met his fiancé at the high class vegan restaurant Pure Food and Wine in New York City earlier this year, according to the New York Post. Thomas is part-owner and yoga teacher at Yoga Vida in New York City and wasn’t quite sure who Baldwin was when they first met. Apparently, he caught her eye.

While the two were off on a romantic getaway in Montauk this past Saturday, he asked the 28-year-old to marry him and she said yes, NYDailyNews.com reported.

Reportedly, Thomas is very good for Baldwin and has even helped him stay healthy. He has credited her for eating healthy and giving up sugar, which is great since Baldwin announced in February he was diagnosed with pre-diabetes.

“I gave up sugar,” he told Access Hollywood. “I lost 30 pounds in four months. It’s amazing.”

He also added, “I do Pilates and spin, but I don’t do as much yoga as I’d like. When we’re shooting and I can’t work out, I just have to eat less. So I’m very conscious of that. But sugar was the real killer for me — that was the problem.”

Thomas sounds like a good match for the environmental activist and humanitarian. Congrats to the happy duo!
