When a couple gets married they can expect gifts to include a toaster (or two), maybe a pretty vase, and perhaps some gift vouchers.
To celebrate his recent marriage to Hilaria Thomas, Alec Baldwin was given a bull by animal rights group PETA.
We’re not talking about a stuffed toy or even a statue for their garden. PETA gave Alec and Hilaria and an actual real live bull! Luckily they won’t be expected to care for it.
The 30 Rock star has been a long-time advocate for PETA, so they decided to free a 22-year-old bull in honour of the newly weds. The bull – who was called Raja and has now been renamed Baldwin Thomas – worked all his life pulling a cart for an Indian sugarcane farmer.
Baldwin Thomas, “will now spend the rest of his days in peace, relaxing at Animal Rahat’s sanctuary in Maharashtra,” a PETA spokesperson told WENN.
“Alec is a strong person you don't mess with, and he's a vegetarian, as is Baldwin Thomas. The couple who have everything now have a rescued bull whose newly-found happiness reflects their own.”
Awww, How cute us that? It brings a little tear to our eye.
Definitely one for the random or what file.
Alec married Hilaria during an intimate ceremony in New Yrok City on Saturday. The 54-year-old actor met the 28-year-old yoga instructor in the summer of 2011 and got engaged in April this year.
According to E! News they exchanged vows in front of family and friend at the Basilica of St. Patrick's Old Cathedral in Manhattan.
