Alec Baldwin Engaged To Yoga Instructor Hilaria Thomas

The star of 30 Rock, Alec Baldwin, is engaged to a yoga instructor by the name of Hilaria Thomas, reports MTV.

This will be of note to many Texans, because Alec Baldwin was previously married to a famous southern girl, Kim Basinger, for more than a decade. They have a daughter named Ireland.

As for Alec Baldwin’s new fiancee, Hilaria Thomas was born in Mallorca, Spain, but has been based in New York for some time reports USA Today.

Alec Baldwin has been married before and there is likely to be a great income disparity between a major actor and a yoga instructor. Therefore, were he getting married in Texas, an attorney would most likely advise him to consider executing a Texas prenuptial agreement.

Prenups, for those that need a reminder, can be used to:

  • Protect a party's assets
  • Protect a party from assuming the debts of the other party
  • Determine how property will be passed upon death
  • Clarify financial rights and responsibilities during a marriage
  • Avoid long, costly, disputes in case of divorce

But one thing to keep in mind about a Texas prenuptial agreement is that you can't, in advance, settle child support or child custody issues. Since Alec Baldwin has had custody issues in the past with Kim Basinger, he would probably already be aware of it.

For more information on Texas prenuptial agreements and why they are necessary in today's day and age, please see the resources below or consider speaking to an attorney from FindLaw's directory.
