Alec Baldwin says he married yoga instructor Hilaria Thomas because she was 'worth it'.
The couple tied the knot in New York on June 30 after just over a year of dating.
And the 30 Rock star told People magazine that at 54 he didn't expect to tie the knot again but he just simply found the right woman.
"Marriage was made for you to make a commitment to someone who is worth it," Alec said. "And I met someone who is worth it."
Alec added that they "overlooked the externals" with Hilaria stating that she is not concerned about their huge age difference.
"I didn't expect to fall in love with somebody who was 26 years my senior, but you cannot help who you fall in love with," she gushed.
The 28-year-old fitness fanatic is also credited with helping the fiery actor lose 30lbs.
"In May of last year I was told I was pre-diabetic," he revealed. "To live life with more discipline is easier when your partner is as health-conscious as she is."
The couple did not have an immediate honeymoon but are planning a trip to Spain later this year and are going to see what "the universe has planned" with regard to having children.
