Hilaria Baldwin would meet her future husband Alec Baldwin at a restaurant in 2011.  Alec spotted Hilaria Thomas at a restaurant and gave her his business card with his personal mobile phone number jotted down on the back. The actor confessed on Instagram: “My friend and I sat down (outside!) and as I turned to my left, I saw a woman who would change my life. Entirely. Thanks for all you’ve given me. You are a gift.” The couple were married a year later.

Alec Baldwin once stated : “Marriage was made for you to make a commitment to someone who is worth it, and I met someone who is worth it.”

Hilaria also describes Alec as her “soulmate”. She added: “I fell in love with him very quickly and very easily. He’s very romantic. We can spend all day talking and we never get bored. With us, everything is very simple. Our wedding rings are engraved: ‘We’re a great team’. In the end, that’s what it’s all about.”

Why do Alec and Hilaria have so many kids?

The couple got engaged in 2012 and got married the same year. 4 beautiful babies became proof of their commitment to each other’s wish to have many children. But many don’t know that despite the slow burning start to their romance, Hilaria revealed it didn’t take them long to make up for lost time, getting engaged, married and having a baby within a short space of time.

She explained, ‘I think we knew fairly soon because we built a real relationship very early on. We got to know each other in a way I think most people forgo if they start dating first, then learn about each other after….”Five months into our relationship, we got an apartment together; then we started talking about getting married; then he proposed; then we got married; now we have a kid…So it all went quite fast!’”

Alec Baldwin is also a great father, and having a support system like Alec can bring a whole new meaning to the word family. In one interview, Hilaria opened up about Alec as a father. And she could say only good things.

“He’s a good dad, a very good dad. I don’t think you ever know how they’re going to be until you experience it. Everybody says, “Oh yeah, sure. I’m going to be with you, and I’m going to change diapers and do all these things,” and you always worry that at 2 a.m. you’re going to be alone with your child and your husband’s going to be snoring. But no, [Alec’s] really great. He wakes up with me every single time that she wakes up. He’s sweet.”

Alec Baldwin also says that his parenting style has evolved since being with Hilaria. 

“It’s a generational thing,” Alec confessed of his and Hilaria’s different parenting styles. “I’m a lot older, and when I grew up there was none of this bargaining and negotiating you do with kids now. Making them understand. My father was like ‘Oh, I’ll make you understand!’ My mother used to hit us with a curtain rod, you know, people used to hit their kids with kitchen utensils. But [Hilaria] is the best mommy, she respects them, she honors them.”

Later in the same interview, the couple revealed that Alec is happy to let Hilaria take on the “alpha” role in their household. “He realizes that I’m there with the kids the majority of the day, and he’s very, very good at letting me be the alpha,” Hilaria said. “Well, I’ve just never been spoken to the way you speak to me sometimes,” Alec joked in response. “It’s really just incredible.”
