Alec Baldwin is planning to elope with fiancée Hilaria Thomas.

The '30 Rock' star is currently shooting a documentary in Cannes, France, but friends of the couple believe they are hoping to tie the knot after the film festival closes on Sunday (27.05.12).

A source told the New York Post's Page Six: ''They've been telling people they'll be spending time in Europe, and there's speculation they're going to get married.''

Alec proposed to Hilaria - who was born on the Spanish island of Mallorca and grew up in Spain and the US - last month, after almost a year of dating.

Alec - who has a 16-year-old daughter Ireland with ex-wife Kim Basinger - recently revealed he was considering having children with Hilaria.

He said: ''Have I thought about having more kids? Oh sure, that would be great, that would be heaven, that would be fantastic.''

He jokingly added: ''As my friend said to me, 'When you have children, typically in a second marriage, when you're older and you get married again to a woman who would have children, you must always remember that you make sure the children attend a college where the commencement ceremonies are held in a facility with a wheelchair accessible ramp.'
