"We're having a baby! It was a surprise, a wonderful surprise," Hilaria shared with Extra, where she moonlights as a special correspondent.
Baldwin, 54, is already a father — his daughter Ireland (mom is ex-wife Kim Basinger) — is 18 years old. He and Hilaria, a yoga instructor, wed in June after a three-month engagement.
The 30 Rock star explained how he learned the news.
"There's a scream I heard, which is a scream normally reserved if there's a spider in the house — not exaggerating. 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."
Hilaria added, "It was followed by 'I'm pregnant, I'm pregnant!' He runs up the stairs and I'm holding it [the test] and showing it to him."
"We can joke all about it, but it's honestly the most amazing moment," Baldwin said. "We are really sharing something special."
The couple also released a statement to People, saying, "We're so thrilled and we can't wait to meet our baby."
The new baby Baldwin is due in late summer.
