Alec Baldwin and his wife Hilaria are expecting their third child. According to reports, the baby boy is due this fall and the famous couple is ecstatic.
Daily Mail reports Alec Baldwin’s wife made the baby announcement via social media on Wednesday. Hilaria, who is 32-years-old, also revealed the baby will be a boy.
The 32-year-old yoga instructor shared the news with her 167,000 followers on Instagram and Twitter, posting a picture of herself in a set of heels and mini skirt, holding a white teddy bear while kissing her 57-year-old husband on the streets of Manhattan.
Her Instagram post read, “Ireland, Carmen, Rafael, Alec, and I are excited to share with you that we are going to have another addition to our family. A little boy coming this fall.”

The Emmy Award-winning Alec Baldwin is already a father to Rafael, 9 months, Carmen, 2 years, and Ireland, 20 — whom he fathered with his ex-wife, Kim Basinger. Baldwin has reportedly been eager to have more kids with Hilaria, even though they’ve already had two children in the last two years.
A few months after Rafael was born, Baldwin said he was dying to have another addition to the family. He admitted that the expected bundle of joy was a surprise, explaining that they wanted another baby, but not quite so soon. He expected to take some time off from acting prior to the birth of their third child, “… but when they come, they come, this is it.”
Alec and Hilaria Baldwin attended the Bent On Learning Inspire! Gala in Manhattan, on Thursday. Baldwin looked dapper in a black suit and Hilaria wore an off-the-shoulder violet jumpsuit. It was their first red carpet showing after their baby-on-the-way announcement.

Hilaria, who has reportedly already started to feel nauseous, says she had been arguing over baby names with her Concussion actor husband. She says that while she loves the names Orlando and Sebastian, Baldwin is taken with the names Tony and Joe. She says she doubts if they would have a Tony or Joe in the family because the names do not seem to fit with the names of their other children, Carmen and Rafael.
In between expecting a new addition to the family, Hilaria is hard at work on her first fitness and wellness tome, The Living Clearly Method which will be published by Rodale books in January 2016.
As a child, Hilaria says she was often overwhelmed about what she should eat, who she should be, and how she ought to live her life. In her opinion, people are always asking themselves these questions and are constantly seeking answers as to how to live a quality life. Baldwin believes these issues cause an immense amount of undue stress.
To relieve the stress, Hilaria Baldwin suggests a yoga method known as the “Living Clearly Method,” which consists of five principles that combat stress. The aim of the book is to help people reduce stress and empower them to be strong rather than cower in the face of adversity.
Although he and his wife are now expecting a baby, Alec Baldwin will play Gino Fratelli in the mob drama, Back in the Day, starring alongside Michael Madsen, Danny Glover and Shannen Doherty.
The plot revolves around a young boxer mentored by a mob boss after his mother dies and his father is run out of town for being an offensive alcoholic. The film is expected to debut in U.S. theaters on May 20.
Alec Baldwin has also signed on to play the mayor of New York City in a TV series yet to begin filming. The 57-year-old actor, who considered running for political office in 2011, is also working on the pilot for HBO and NBC — in which he plays a colorful character who is a combination of George Soros, Michael Bloomberg, and Donald Trump. The actor explained the role in an interview with Deadline.
“The character is a philanthropist, a big businessman and well-known tabloid fixture in New York. He’s Trump without the baggage, Bloomberg but a Democrat, George Soros if he was in real estate, a left-leaning Democrat who is also a businessman who understands the reality of how the city has to be run to create the right climate for the business community.”
Although Hilaria and Alec Baldwin’s expected baby is a bit of a surprise, they both seem excited to welcome their son to the family.
