It's been a challenging year for so many people, but Alec and Hilaria Baldwin have a lot to celebrate. The two, who have been married for eight years, just welcomed their fifth baby together. They announced in September 2020 that they were the proud parents to another child and they seem happier than ever. With the new baby, how many kids does Alec Baldwin have now?
Alec and Hilaria Baldwin are proud parents, again.
On Sept. 9, 2020, Hilaria shared the happy news that she and Alec were parents, once again. "We had a baby last night," Hilaria wrote in her caption. "He is perfect and we couldn’t be happier. Stay tuned for a name."
Their new baby was a blessing and came at a time where pregnancy was challenging for the 36-year-old author. The previous year, in 2019, Hilaria had suffered two miscarriages, one in April 2019 and another in November of the same year, before announcing she was pregnant again in April 2020.
"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 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.
Their new baby joins their four other children together: Carmen Gabriela, 7, Rafael Thomas, 5, Leonardo Ángel Charles, 4, and 2-year-old Romeo Alejandro David.
How many kids does Alec Baldwin have?
While the Hollywood couple just welcomed their fifth child together, Alec does have another child from his first marriage. In his baby post, Alec shared the same photo as Hilaria, but his caption highlighted all of his kids.
"Número Cinco está aqui," he wrote, adding, "Para mi, número seis." This translates to "Number Five is here. For me, number six" in Portuguese.
Alec has another child from his first marriage with actress Kim Basinger. The two were married on Aug. 19, 1993 and, two years later, welcomed their daughter, Ireland, on Oct. 23, 1995. Alec and Kim later divorced in 2002, and during the divorce, they had a complicated custody battle with who would be the primary caregiver for Ireland.
They eventually came to an agreement on the custody of their daughter. Alec explained in his 2008 book A Promise to Ourselves: A Journey Through Fatherhood and Divorce that his divorce litigation cost close to $3 million and they eventually reached joint custody.
Now, it seems the two have a close relationship. Given Alec himself comes from a family with a bunch of kids — six to be exact — it's not surprising that he's got a large family.
Only time will tell if Alec and Hilaria decide to add more children to their brood, but for now, we hope they enjoy their latest little babe.
