Congrats are in order for Alec Baldwin and wife Hilaria Baldwin as they've officially announced that they're welcoming another new baby to the family! And no, you're not imagining things — they did just have two babies. As you might expect, plenty of people are a tad bit confused. Just how many kids does Alec have, anyway?
How many kids does Alec Baldwin have?
Taking to Instagram on March 29, 2022, Hilaria revealed to fans that she and Alec are expecting their seventh child together! "After many ups and downs over the past few years, we have an exciting up and a huge surprise: another Baldwinito is coming this fall," she wrote alongside a heart emoji.
She added: "Our new baby is a very bright spot in our lives. A blessing and a gift during such uncertain times."
The newest Baldwinito will join Hilaria and Alec's other children: Carmen, 8; Rafael, 6; Leonardo, 5; Romeo, 3; Eduardo, 18 months; and Lucia, 13 months,
Alec also shares a daughter named Ireland with ex-wife Kim Basinger, whom he wed in 1993. Ireland was born in 1995, and she currently works as a model.
Alec and Kim divorced in 2002, and their split resulted in a complicated and highly publicized custody battle.
With the just-announced forthcoming birth of another child in fall of 2022, Alec will be the father of eight children total.
Baby Lucia joined the family in 2021, just six months after her big brother Eduardo (Edu) was born.
It seems as though Alec and Hilaria are set on continuing to expand their family, as the reveal of their seventh child together comes about a year after Lucia's birth.
Baby Lucia's birth was announced in March 2021; she was born via surrogate.
Before that, Edu was born in September 2020. "Número Cinco está aqui," Alec wrote in an Instagram caption. "(Para mi, número seis.)" This translates to "Number Five is here. (For me, number six)."
These were clearly joyous occasions to celebrate after a period of time that was quite difficult for Alec and Hilaria. In 2019, Hilaria suffered two miscarriages — one in April and another in November. In April of 2020, she announced that she was pregnant.
"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 wrote in the caption of a video back in April 2020 when she shared the news she was expecting. "Just got the great news that all is well and all is healthy with this little munchkin. I wanted to share this with you. Here we go again," she added.
Alec himself comes from a family with a bunch of kids — six to be exact. On top of that, the star is very proud of being the father of so many kids. "We have 'somos un buen equipo' engraved on our wedding bands. We say that to each other all the time at home — that we're a good team," Hilaria and Alec told People in March 2022. "One of the most beautiful things my children have experienced with a big family is how the heart can grow with every new sibling."
