Meet Hilaria Thomas, the 28-year-old yoga instructor reportedly dating 53-year-old Alec Baldwin. According to Page Six, Baldwin is "smitten" with Thomas, who runs the Yoga Vida studio in New York; he even plans on bringing her as his date to the Tony Awards on June 13. Last month, the actor took Thomas to the 120th anniversary party for Carnegie Hall at The Plaza. (Here's a photo of the pair at the gala, snapped by Patrick McMullan's photo agency.)
When asked about the relationship, Baldwin's rep joked to Page Six: "He's actually been dating Russell Brand down in South Florida." As for Thomas, she snapped, "I'm not going to answer these questions." When The Famous called her studio this morning, the receptionist refused to pass along our request for comment.
We'll take Thomas' silence as tacit confirmation?
Here's another image of Thomas on the fitness website Mizzfit. The site's editor gushed about her in a comments thread, writing:
"Hilaria really does care and she is always so very kind and sweet to all who approach her. She and I chatted for a while when I interviewed her and I was really inspired by her story. She was a competitive dancer and lived a different way of life and even looked different. She was rail thin and always had to put on a show. I believe she's made a huge change and really enjoys the lifestyle and career she's made for herself now. I think yoga has had quite an impact on her life and helped her decide to be kinder to her body. This is what she helps her students do -- take inventory, check in, and appreciate what you've got. How can anyone not love that about her?"
While we can't imagine Baldwin taking yoga (he's much too Type A!), perhaps Thomas is converting him to the zen-like workout.
