NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Alec Baldwin proposed over the weekend to Hilaria Thomas, his girlfriend of about a year.

Thomas, 28, is a yoga instructor.

Baldwin, who turns 54 Tuesday, was formerly married to actress Kim Basinger. The two have a daughter, 18-year-old Ireland. Baldwin’s divorce from Basinger ended acrimoniously in 2002.

There’s no date for the wedding.

Baldwin reportedly called the engagement a “great way to celebrate” his upcoming birthday.

    Money and fame is what makes the world go round.

    Congrats to the couple?? Another old man with a girl half his age. It’s legalized pedophilia. It’s so creepy. There will never be peace in the world until men stop treating women like they are useless except for one thing. Another George Bush hater, but in reality —- just another woman hater. Is it no wonder people don’t take Hollywood’s political opinions seriously?

    He is an abusive alcoholic to his ex-wife and his own daughter. Shameful.

      Absolutely right and if it were not for fame and money he would still be living off a parkway exit in NJ with an ugly wife 4 kids, no money, no teeth and a beer belly.
