When I heard the happy news that Alec Baldwin and his wife Hilaria had welcomed a baby girl into the world on Friday, my first thought was, congratulations! My second thought was, hmmm, how old will Alec be when the kid graduates from high school? 🙂
But more power to the 55-year-old multi-talented star of movies, TV and Broadway. Plus, Hilaria is just 28, so hopefully between the two of them, they’ll balance out all the late night diaper-changes and play dates as she gets older.
That name is so beautiful! While they knew months ago that the baby would be a girl, they decided not to pick out a name until they met her for the first time.
“I think you actually have to look at it once it pops out and say, ‘Who are you? What is your name?'” Hilaria said.
This is the first child for the duo, and Baldwin’s second; he’s dad to 17-year-old Ireland Baldwin from his previous marriage to Kim Basinger.
Check out this sweet note that Ireland wrote to the new baby. She gives some heartfelt advice and ends it with this:
“I love you, Carmen. You have been born into one crazy family. You are both lucky and cursed at the same time. 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!”
