It’s baby boy joy for Alec and Hi­laria Bald­win

It’s baby num­ber four for Alec and Hi­laria Bald­win! The celebrity cou­ple are thrilled to be ex­pect­ing an­other wee bub next year – a new brother for their three chil­dren, Car­men (4) Rafael (2) and 13-month-old Leonardo.

It seems their baby news came as some­thing of a sur­prise for the cou­ple, who met at a restau­rant in New York in 2011.

“I cried when I found out!” says Hi­laria (33). “I wasn’t up­set about it, but I was over­whelmed! I re­ally do be­lieve that this baby was meant to be and will come, and we’ll be com­pletely ob­sessed with him.”

Hi­laria, a yoga in­struc­tor, posted the happy news to her In­sta­gram ac­count last week, writ­ing, “Our little Bald­wini­tos are get­ting a new team­mate this spring.” She promised to make them a cake that would re­veal if they would be get­ting a baby brother or sis­ter by the colour in­side.

“Car­men was a little dis­ap­pointed be­cause she’s been want­ing a little sis­ter,” tells Hi­laria. “I don’t know if I can do five!”

Alec (59), who is also fa­ther to Ire­land (22), his daugh­ter with Kim Basinger, seemed thrilled at the news as well, re­post­ing his wife’s pic­tures with the cap­tion, “Here we go again!”

While Hi­laria may have been shocked at how fast her fourth preg­nancy has come about, the Span­ish beauty has been open about her de­sire to have one more baby.

“Yes! I would to­tally do one more. For some rea­son, right af­ter I de­liver a baby, I want an­other one. It’s kind of feel­ing like it’s go­ing down this crazy slide and you’re like, ‘I want to go again!’ be­cause it’s so in­vig­o­rat­ing and I have had great ex­pe­ri­ences.”

How­ever, she ad­mits the thought of a mul­ti­ple birth scares her. “Imag­ine if it were twins! Oh, my God. Or triplets? No, that would not hap­pen. Doesn’t run in our fam­ily!”

The happy baby news comes dur­ing a test­ing week for Alec, who came un­der fire for his com­ments on the Har­vey We­in­stein scan­dal that is en­velop­ing Hol­ly­wood.

He re­marked in a se­ries of tweets that if women set­tle sex­ual ha­rass­ment suits out of court, the process of sign­ing non-dis­clo­sure agree­ments means they are muz­zled and then “the course of change” doesn’t hap­pen as fast as it poten­i­tally could.

Af­ter ex­pe­ri­enc­ing a huge amount of crit­i­cism for his com­ments, Alec has sus­pended his Twit­ter ac­count.
