Alec Baldwin and his wife Hilaria are expecting their first child together.
“We’re so thrilled and we can’t wait to meet our baby,” the couple tells PEOPLE.
“We’re having a baby!” Hilaria also announced on EXTRA. “It was a surprise, a wonderful surprise!”
The couple recalled the surprise moment when Hilaria found out she was pregnant. “There’s a scream I heard, which is a scream normally reserved if there’s a spider in the house, not exaggerating,” Alec recounted. “Normally, I will be reading a book. We’re in the country, it’s quiet, some time to really relax and unwind and sometimes, once a month, you hear ‘Ahhh, Alec, Alec!’ I come upstairs, and there’s a spider on the wall. So then I hear that scream again, but it was not a spider.”
“It was followed by ‘I’m pregnant, I’m pregnant!’,” Hilaria added. “He runs up the stairs and I’m holding it [the test] and showing it to him.”
This is the first baby for the couple, but the second for Baldwin who has 17-year-old daughter Ireland with ex-wife Kim Basinger.
