It's a girl for Alec Baldwin and his wife, Hilaria! The couple welcomed their daughter into the world earlier this week, announcing the news on Twitter.


"We are overjoyed to announce the birth of our daughter Carmen Gabriela," Hilaria wrote. "She is absolutely perfect."

Carmen is Hilaria's first child. Alec is already father to 17-year-old model Ireland Baldwin, his daughter with ex-wife Kim Basinger. Big sis is super psyched about the new addition, and she posted a long missive to the baby on Tumblr.

Ireland gave Carmen several good pieces of advice, including to remember that her parents always love her, to walk away from arguments (something perhaps her father could stand to learn), enjoy being a kid, remember she's beautiful, go easy on the booze, learn how to say no, always tell the truth, be careful whom she trusts, stay in school and watch out for boys.

"I love you, Carmen. You have been born into one crazy family. You are both lucky and cursed at the same time," she wrote. "We are going to have so fun much fun together. I can't wait to meet you soon. I promise you I will always be there for you no matter what! Never forget!"

No further details on the birth or baby have been made available.
