The news of yet another celebrity wedding hit the headlines this past weekend amidst a record statistics of celebrity marriages breakup trend. This has been common with many celebrities shortly after such elaborate nuptials. On June 30th 2012, Alec Baldwin, flanked by a host of family, friends and other Hollywood stars tied the knot with his fiancée and Yoga instructor, Hilaria Thomas in a New York City church.
The 54 year old groom and his 28 year old bride he’s courted for just about one year walked down the aisle at St. Patrick’s Old Cathedral amid hearty congratulatory messages by fans and friends. The couple was joined by Rev. George Deas in a colorful Catholic ceremony also attended by among other Hollywood stars, Mariska Hargitay, Baldwin’s “30 Rock” co star Tina Fey and director Woody Allen.
Hilaria stood out in a well designed silk magnolia Amsale gown. The cap sleeved dress with a keyhole back neckline accented with crystal buttons was a lovely choice for the bride to say “I do” in style. On the other hand the groom chose to announce his vows in a suit done by the famous designer Tom Ford.
Baldwin’s daughter, Ireland, born in his previous marriage with actress Kim Basinger was also in attendance. She also wore Amsale’s gown – exquisite slate silk chiffon.
Baldwin and Hilaria only got engaged this April after they started dating last year. Many would think that was pretty short for a courtship duration, especially with a bride who’s 26 years younger than her match.
Well, just like the other well wishers did, it can only be wished that their marriage will not form statistics of recent celebrity break up trends, where many celebrities are filing for divorce even before celebrating the first anniversary.
Some of the shortest celebrity marriages include the multi million-dollar televised nuptials between Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries. In just two months it became public that the reality star was divorcing her husband. The other short-lived celebrity marriage was between Kid Rock and his bride Pamela Anderson that witnessed the couple break up after staying together for only four months.
Whether Alec Baldwin and Hilaria Thomas have come together for a long term commitment or for yet another short term surprise will be for the time being a wait and see. We can only hope that what brought them together will also keep their union free from the jinx of celebrity marriages breakup.
