Alec told HELLO! magazine: "Marriage was made for you to make a commitment to someone who is worth it, and I met someone who is worth it."

Hilaria summed up the unexpected turn her life has taken by saying: "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 describes Alec as her "soulmate". She added: "I fell in love with him very quickly and very easily. He's very romantic. We can spend all day talking and we never get bored. With us, everything is very simple. Our wedding rings are engraved: 'We're a great team'. In the end, that's what it's all about."
