Alec Baldwin and Hilaria Thomas have confirmed they are expecting their first child together.
Alec Baldwin, 54, and his yoga instructor wife of eight months said her pregnancy came as “a wonderful surprise” and they feel very “lucky”.
Hilaria Thomas, 28, confirmed the news on Tuesday on Extra, for which she acts as a part-time correspondent, saying: “We’ve having a baby. [It] was a surprise, a wonderful surprise.”
Alec Baldwin has a 17-year-old daughter Ireland with ex-wife Kim Basinger.
The actor revealed he was unaware that his wife was even taking a pregnancy test at their country home and was amazed to discover the news when he heard her screaming in the bathroom.
Alec Baldwin said: “There’s a scream I heard, which is a scream normally reserved [for] if there’s a spider in the house. It really is the most amazing thing. I’m lucky.”
Hilaria Thomas has already noticed a change in her body and she can’t wait to start preparing their home for the new arrival.
She said: “I’m showing. This is actually gonna happen, now we can start the nursery, the everything, the dreaming!”
Alec Baldwin previously revealed that he hoped to become a stay at home father if Hilaria Thomas ever got pregnant.
He joked: “I want her to get rich because I want to retire. She teaches yoga.
“I want her to become the world’s first billionaire yoga teacher. I know it is a long shot, but that’s the plan I’m sticking with right now.
“I want to have a baby and stay home and make the pancakes before I send my wife out to work every day to pay the bills.”
Alec Baldwin and Hilaria Thomas were recently denied reports they were having a baby because they weren’t ready to announce the news.
Hilaria Thomas first sparked speculation she was expecting late last month when she showed off what looked like a baby bump while filming a segment for Extra that saw her pull off some impromptu dance moves.
