Hilaria and Alec Baldwin welcome a baby boy, give him a cool Spanish name
Alec Baldwin and his wife, yoga instructor Hilaria Baldwin, welcomed their second child together. The couple posted the first photo of their baby boy and shared his Spanish baby name. What is it? Hint: It might remind you of one of your favorite Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
57-year-old actor Alec Baldwin is a dad again, as his 31-year-old wife, Hilaria, shared a photo of their newborn baby's tiny hand.
"We are happy to announce the birth of Rafael Thomas Baldwin," the caption reads, which shows Hilaria holding the tiny fingers of her newborn baby boy.
They are already parents to a daughter, 1-1/2-year-old Carmen Gabriela, and Alec has a 19-year-old daughter, Ireland, with his ex-wife Kim Basinger.
The super-fit Hilaria shared photos throughout her pregnancy as her baby bump grew, like this snapshot she posted two weeks ago, using the hashtag "BaldwinBabyBump."
"Another every two week pic...a bit bigger! A little blue for my#BaldwinBabyBump ...got a few more pics of these to go before señorito is born!" she captioned the photo.
Rafael is a name of Spanish origin that means "God has healed." The name is a rather unique one, as the Social Security Administration's popular baby name chart ranks it at number 293 (Noah is currently the No. 1 baby boy name). The alternate spelling, Raphael (made popular by the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles), is ranked at number 596.
The middle name of Thomas is Hilaria's middle name. The yoga instructor was born in Spain, which explains why both the couple's kids' names have Spanish influences.
The 30 Rock actor has been busy with his new play, All My Sons, however has been a hands-on dad to Carmen and is undoubtedly excited about his new baby boy as well. Although the actor has had a prickly relationship with the media in the past, he often posts pictures of his adorable daughter Carmen and uses the hashtag "#CarmenThoughts."
He also admits that fatherhood has mellowed him out. "I'm older [now] and married, so I choose to stay home with my wife and daughter. Going out? There's not a whole lot of that anymore," he said.
