After weeks of speculation, Alec Baldwin and wife Hilaria Thomas have confirmed they are expecting their first child together.
“We're having a baby! It was a surprise, a wonderful surprise," Thomas told "Extra" (she is a lifestyle correspondent for the show). Just like Kim Kardashian and Kate Middleton, Thomas is due in summer 2013.
Thomas initially took her pregnancy test without telling her husband, but he was filled in shortly after.
“There’s a scream I heard, which is a scream normally reserved if there’s a spider in the house, not exaggerating," the actor chimed in when speaking with "Extra". "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!’" continued the yoga instructor. "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," added Baldwin. "We are really sharing something special.”
Thomas seems to be feeling great, saying: “Now, I’m showing, it’s getting to be much more, like ‘OMG this is actually going to happen!’ Now we can start the nursery, the everything, the dreaming.”
Baldwin, 54, has one daughter, Ireland, from his previous marriage to actress Kim Basinger. The former “30 Rock” star wed Thomas in June 2012.
Wonder if Baldwin and his former co-star Tracy Morgan might be exchanging some parenting tips? Morgan and his wife Megan Wollover are also expecting a little bundle of joy.
Congrats to the Baldwins!
