Happiness is… coming home to each other… and more square-footage (Patrick McMullen)

Alec Baldwin and and Hilaria Thomas, his yoga instructor bride-to-be, have kept us riveted with their constantly shifting wedding plans (eloping after Cannes! No, a big Hollywood-style wedding in New York on June 30!), but now we finally have proof of their dedication to and love for one another: a real estate deal.

Ms. Thomas has purchased an apartment in Devonshire House that abuts Mr. Baldwin’s, The Real Deal reports. She paid $1.2 million to seal the deal on apartment #12C, which was does not have a public listing.

As for Mr. Baldwin, he closed on his three-bedroom Devonshire House apartment in October, paying $11.7 million for a 4,137-square-foot spread that came with an additional 470-square-feet of terrace. The move came shortly after he started dating Ms. Thomas, with their early relationship documented via creepy/lovey-dovey text messages.

Are we to assume that a building permit to combine the two units will enter public records around the same time as the couple’s marriage license? Nothing says love like merging one’s real estate holdings—although true love would seem to demands both names on the deed.
