For Alec Baldwin, wife Hilaria was clearly heaven-sent.
During the Oct. 11 premiere episode of his new MSNBC talk show, Up Late With Alec Baldwin, the actor spoke fondly about meeting his now-spouse back in 2011.
"I remember during my lifetime I would meet women, and it was almost like God would say to me, 'Now, this woman here is not the one you are going to end up with, but she is going to be a lot like this woman; look at this woman, study this woman,'" Baldwin told guest Bill de Blasio, Democratic candidate for New York mayor. "And when my wife showed up, he was like, 'You recognize her now?'"
Sure enough, not only did Baldwin recognize her, but he went so far as to marry her.
The two tied the knot in June 2012 in front of family and friends at the Basilica of St. Patrick's Old Cathedral in Manhattan.
And in August of this year, the newlyweds welcomed daughter Carmen.
It was announced in September that Baldwin would be getting his own talk show.
"After two seasons of my WNYC podcast, I've developed a fondness for hosting a show that involved talking with smart, talented and engaging people in every imaginable field," the two-time Emmy winner said in a statement at the time. "I'm grateful to MSNBC for helping me bring a similar show to television."
