Alec Baldwin Birthday: Actor Turns 55 Today

Pop the champagne and say congrats: It's Alec Baldwin's 55th birthday today (April 3)!

The native New Yorker and most successful Baldwin brother has been in the public eye for three decades now, and has appeared in numerous movies ("The Hunt for Red October," "Glengarry Glen Ross," "It's Complicated"), TV shows ("Knots Landing," "30 Rock"), and on Broadway ("A Street Car Named Desire," "Orphans"). He's been nominated for and has won many awards.

Baldwin was married to Kim Basinger for seven years and the two have a daughter together, 17-year-old Ireland. The actor is currently married to Hilaria Thomas-Baldwin, 28, and the two are expecting their first child together -- a baby girl.

CORRECTION: A previous version of this post misstated Baldwin's career as "centuries," rather than decades, long, probably because we were thinking of that time he narrated "Walking With Cavemen."
