Alec Baldwin had told Hilaria Thomas he was going to propose to her.
The 30 Rock star - who married the yoga instructor last weekend after a year of dating - and his partner are "very organised" and not good at keeping secrets, so he made sure to warn her that he was planning to ask her to be his wife.
Hilaria revealed: "He brought me to Montauk (in New York), out by the lighthouse. He's not great at keeping secrets from me, which is a very good thing. He told me earlier that he was going to propose. We're very organised. He kept asking me if I knew where we were driving. I said, 'No, I've never been past Gurney's Inn!' When we got there he said, 'This is the closest I could get you to Spain'... since my family is still there."
However, despite knowing what Alec, 54, was about to ask her, Hilaria insists it was still an emotional moment.
She added to website the Daily Front Row: "He got on his knee, and I burst out crying."
Hilaria, 28, believes Alec has "really changed" since he adopted her yoga workouts and they now lead a healthy lifestyle together.
She said: "He's looking great! Alec and I still like our dinners, even though he's lost a lot of weight. But yoga has really changed him. Before we met, he used to do what he calls 'middle-aged white man yoga.' Elements of yoga have definitely helped, but it's mostly nutrition and an overall lifestyle change. We stock up on blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries, almond milk, almonds, and apples."
