A few weeks after the rumors started, Alec Baldwin and his wife, Hilaria Baldwin, have confirmed that they are expecting their first child together.
In an interview with Extra, the 30 Rock actor confirmed the news. Hilaria said excitedly, “We’re having a baby! It was a surprise, a wonderful surprise.”
Alec explained how he heard the news. “There’s a scream I heard, which is a scream normally reserved if there’s a spider in the house, not exaggerating,” he said. “Normally, I will be reading a book. We're in the country, it's quiet, some time to really relax and unwind and sometimes, once a month, you hear ‘Ahhh, Alec, Alec!’ I come upstairs, and there’s a spider on the wall. So then I hear that scream again, but it was not a spider.”
Hilaria finished the story, adding, “It was followed by ‘I’m pregnant, I'm pregnant!’ He runs up the stairs and I'm holding it [the test] and showing it to him.”
Still, Alec called it an “amazing moment.” His wife added, “Now, I’m showing, it’s getting to be much more, like ‘OMG this is actually going to happen!’ Now we can start the nursery, the everything, the dreaming.”
The rumors started late last month, when a source broke the news to InTouch. at the time, Alec’s rep gave “no comment” on the stories.
The happy couple have been answering well wishes on Twitter. Alec has retweeted a few messages, while Hilaria wrote, “Thank u for all of the sweet wishes! Now all I want is 2 take this little growing munchkin 2 bed w my snoogle! (Its a pillow-nothing dirty).”
Alec, who married Hilaria in June, also has a 17-year-old daughter with ex-wife Kim Basinger. It looks like he will certainly keep himself busy since 30 Rock ended.
