Alec Baldwin is headed to the altar with his new fiancée, Hilaria Thomas, and friends of the 30 Rock star aren”t surprised.
“She makes him so happy,” says a source close to the couple. “She”s a great person. Her smile is contagious. She makes everybody feel welcome and warm whenever she is around.”
Thomas, a 28-year-old yoga instructor in New York City, is also perhaps the antithesis of Baldwin”s former loves.
“She”s still teaching classes – the day after the news that she was engaged, she was out teaching a class,” says the source. “She”s very real. She”s not a showbiz type at all. She”s humble.”
And friends have noticed a change in Baldwin, 54, since the two began dating. “He”s just really happy,” says the source. “They light up the room whenever they are together.”
