It’s a happy time for Hilaria and Alec Baldwin! The A-list couple just welcomed their brand-new bundle of joy, and it’s a boy! That makes Hilaria a mother of five — and Alec a dad of six!

Hilaria made the sweet announcement today via Instagram. “We had a baby last night,” she wrote, alongside a beautiful picture of her, Alec, and the infant. “He is perfect and we couldn’t be happier 🌟. Stay tuned for a name🤍.” Many celebrities chimed in to wish them well and offer their congratulations on the couple’s newest addition.

Hilaria and Alec were already busy parents. They now share five kids together, including Romeo Alejandro David, 2; Leonardo Ángel Charles, 4 on Saturday; Rafael Thomas, 5; and Carmen Gabriela, 7.  Alec also has a grown-up daughter, 24-year-old Ireland, from his previous marriage to Kim Basinger.

It’s definitely going to be a wild ride welcoming a new baby into their home, but the two seem completely thrilled.

Hilaria and Alec absolutely love being parents. Now they get to do it all again from the start, having just welcomed their newest addition. They made the sweet announcement just this morning, and they seem to be over-the-moon excited.

While the couple already have quite the brood of children, the road to baby No. 5 wasn’t easy. Hilaria revealed that she was pregnant once again in April. But prior to that, she had several miscarriages. One was in April 2019, and the other was in November.

She revealed her latest pregnancy with an adorable post. “Sound up … I’ll let the baby do the talking because I don’t have the words to express how this sound makes us feel,” Hilaria captioned a video of her belly. In the sweet video, you can hear the baby’s heartbeat.

From that first reveal, Hilaria has been documenting so much of her pregnancy on Instagram. It’s been amazing for fans to see and feel her excitement, especially after suffering those two difficult losses. It’s clear from her shares that she feels extremely blessed to get to be a mother again. Her kids are definitely her whole world.

Like many moms-to-be, Hilaria says she knew she was pregnant even before she took a test! It’s pretty common for moms who have been pregnant before to recognize that distinct feeling, even before getting a positive reading. She told People magazine, “I knew before I could take a test that I was pregnant. I’ve done this so many times that I really know that feeling.”

For women who have gone through miscarriages, there can be so much anxiety around taking a pregnancy test. You don’t know whether you’re going to keep experiencing loss after loss, so it’s definitely tough to figure out how optimistic to be. It seems like Hilaria never lost hope that she’d be a mother once again.

Still, she was definitely anxious to get that positive test result. She said, “Even though I knew it would be early, I started taking a test every other day to kind of give myself a sense of how far along I would be. And right when I thought it would turn positive, it did!” she shared.

Even though Hilaria has already had so many baby celebrations before, her husband wanted to make her feel special. He helped organize a secret baby shower with friends in her “quarantine bubble.” Hilaria revealed that the biggest surprise was that he didn’t let it slip. “I can’t believe you actually pulled it off … AKA I can’t believe that Alec didn’t tell me … because we all know that he can’t keep secrets from me!” she said. “So this was soooooo well done!”

Hilaria has spoken a lot about why she loves being a mother in the past. It’s clear that family is her and Alec’s biggest priority and that they absolutely feel called to have a large family. Last month she said, “The best thing about having a big family is there’s just so much love.”

“They say when you have one kid, you’re like, ‘I could never love another person as much as I love this kid.’ Then you have another one and you realize you can. And that doesn’t change as you have more and more,” Hilaria added. Now she and Alec have one more baby to love.

We can’t wait to find out the little one’s name!
