Hilaria Baldwin previously revealed plans for a natural childbirth, although she admitted she could choose an epidural if the pain got too bad.
She said: “Right now, I want to do it naturally. That’s not to say there’s something wrong with the epidural, but that’s the way I was raised – I’m a pretty natural person. But if it does get to the point where I am screaming for the epidural, I have no problems with that. We’ll see where it goes.”
Hilaria and Alec Baldwin revealed they were expecting a girl several months ago. She recently showing off the baby’s pastel designed nursery complete with yoga mats.

Kim Basinger, now 59, started her career as a fashion model and has graced magazine covers worldwide, usually clad head-to-toe in spectacular ensembles and, of course, made up.

“I would say he is my best friend. We can act stupid in public, private, or wherever and we are always laughing.”
Slater Trout then chimed in: “We don’t do normal stuff. We go paddle boarding with humpback whales in Maui.
“We go on athletic dates. And very romantic ones too. Like we will go to like a bluff and star gaze and go on trail runs and walk the dogs.”
Despite Ireland Baldwin living in Los Angeles with mother Kim Basinger, she still makes time to visit her boyfriend “once a month”.

And it was plain to see just how much she resembled her similarly stunning mother, actress Kim Basinger.
Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger’s model daughter was dripping in glamour in a curve-kissing black gown with capped sleeves that rested on her arms and showed off her toned shoulders.
The sweeping train meant that the dress was long enough even for the Amazon-sized teenager who has inherited tall genes from her 6 foot tall father and 5’6 1/2″ mother, but surpassed both of them in height.
While the lace topped bodice of the beautiful dress hung low on her bust-line, the classic cut meant that the overall silhouette was elegant.
Large silver cluster earrings and heavy sparkling bangles added a dramatic touch, while Ireland Baldwin kept her makeup simple with pale lips, lush dark lashes, and smooth bronzed skin.

Ireland Baldwin’s hair is most often seen loose and natural like any carefree California teen, but for the special occasion she had it secured back in a sophisticated chignon with long, perfectly straight bangs falling over her face.
As she stared out with a sultry expression through the blonde fringe, Ireland Baldwin looked shockingly similar to her stunning mom, Kim Basinger.
Ireland Baldwin, who recently scored a top contract with agency IMG, recently told People.com she is working hard towards her goal of becoming a top model: “I’m getting into it. Doing it right. I want to know where it’s going to take me.”
She said she was inspired by a number of contemporary models including Kate Moss and Miranda Kerr, but of course also looks up to Kim Basinger.
“Oh! And my mom, of course,” Ireland Baldwin told People.
“My mom’s very happy she can finally give me tips. She’s always there, so she’ll stand in the back and say, <<Turn your head this way, or do this>>.”

During the 1990s Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger were one of the hottest couples at Hollywood before their marriage imploded and they divorced in 2002.
The pair went on to have a bitter custody battle over daughter Ireland which lasted many years, although now an apparent truce has emerged.
These days Alec Baldwin seems to be settling for a more settled domestic life as he prepares to welcome his first child with his second wife Hilaria.
“I never imagined I would be sitting at a table with my wife having a baby and I have a daughter that’s almost 18 years-old. It’s bizarre,” Alec Baldwin admitted.

The photos were likely taken in Santa Cruz, after Ireland Baldwin tweeted on Friday that the California coastal town was one of her “favorite places on earth”.
Ireland Baldwin also uploaded a summery picture of her and a friend standing beside a cascading bush of fuchsia pink flowers against a wedge of blue sky.

Ireland Baldwin recently said that she wants to be viewed as a healthy role model for young girls by maintaining a fit, realistic figure.
“I want to be an inspirational model,” she told People magazine in a recent interview.
“I want people to look at me and say, <<Wow, she looks healthy>>.”
Since her rise to fame, Ireland Baldwin has received more than her share of negative feedback online, both as collateral damage due to her notoriously short-tempered father and her own ventures into the celebrity spotlight.
“I have received nasty e-mails, messages on Twitter and ridiculous comments not only about my size but my family,” Ireland Baldwin told People magazine.
Ireland Baldwin, who is the image of her stunning mother, Kim Basinger, has revealed she calls 28-year-old Hilaria Thomas “mom”.
Ireland Baldwin, 16, is known as Dublin for short and gave her father Alec Baldwin away at his Manhattan wedding earlier this year revealed she is being homeschooled in LA, where she lives with Kim Basinger, 58.
The teenager told Page Six Magazine: “I didn’t want to go my senior year without spending time with my dad.
“And Hilaria and I are really close. She’s like a big sister to me, but I feel like I haven’t spent enough time with her yet.
“We have a lot more to learn about each other and we have a lot more experiences to have together.
“We joke around and I call her <<Mom>>. But I respect her, it’s not like I’m Parent Trap-ping her, setting up booby traps in her room.”

Ireland Baldwin’s famous parents split when she was just five after her mother’s Academy Award for LA Confidential; her 54-year-old father had moved his young family to his childhood home in Long Island and it pushed a final wedge between the starry pair.
Alec Baldwin followed his family back to LA so he could maintain a close relationship with Ireland, but in 2005 she complained of feeling unsafe around the 30 Rock star after overhearing a row between him and his then girlfriend.
In 2007, an infamous voicemail from Alec Baldwin was leaked.
On it you can hear him accusing his daughter of being a “rude, thoughtless little pig”.
But Ireland Baldwin counters: “I’ve always had a really great relationship with my dad,” she tells Page Six Magazine from the California cottage where she lives with Kim Basinger.
“The only problem with that voicemail was that people made it out to be a way bigger deal than it was. He’s said stuff like that before just because he’s frustrated.
“For me it was like, <<OK, whatever>>. I called him back, I was like, <<Sorry, Dad, I didn’t have my phone>>. That was it.”
“We almost did something funny on YouTube, of me calling him and yelling at him,” she laughs.
“We were just talking about it the other week.”
Ireland Baldwin also paid a tribute to yoga instructor Hilaria’s “extreme” diets and gave her the credit for reversing Alec’s pre-diabetic state.

The Reverend George Deas is said to have performed the ceremony, reportedly conducted in English with readings in Spanish.
Guests at the nuptials in Manhattan’s Nolita district included Alec Baldwin’s 30 Rock co-star Tina Fey, his brothers Stephen and Billy Baldwin, Woody Allen and wife Soon-Yi, actress Mariska Hargitay, Robert Kennedy Jr. and Saturday Night Live producer Lorne Michaels.
After the ceremony, guests were filtered to the campus of Hilaria’s alma mater, New York University, for a reception at the private school’s nearby Kimmel Center.
Earlier Hilaria tweeted: “Today is going to be a good day.”
According to E! Online the couple chose a white color scheme for the ceremony, highlighted in the selection of flowers that decorated the historic cathedral.
Florist De Juan Stroud placed “white hydrangeas, white roses and calla lilies around the church”.
The entertainment website also reports that white ribbons were tied to the pews and a tent was set up near the back entrance of the church.
Alec Baldwin, who is 26 years Hilaria’s senior, asked for her hand in April in Long Island, New York.
The two dated for almost a year before he proposed and they first appeared in public together at several bashes in New York in May 2011.
Alec Baldwinwas previously married to Ireland’s mother, Kim Basinger, but the pair divorced in acrimony in 2002 after nine years of marriage.
Spanish-born Hilaria Thomas has not been married before.
She grew up between Boston and Spain, studying dance and history at NYU before becoming a yoga instructor.
In recent months Alec Baldwin has been sporting a noticeably trimmer physique, perhaps in a bid to appear more youthful alongside his younger partner.
The actor is apparently planning a very laid back summer with his new bride.
Taking to Twitter again before the ceremony, he revealed the couple could be off to Kingston, Idaho for their honeymoon.
Accompanied by a scenic picture of the Coeur D’ Alene River, Alec Baldwin wrote: “I can’t wait to stand on these rocks at Albert’s Landing and leave this world behind…. for the Summer.”
