Great news for Alec Baldwin and his new wife Hilaria Thomas Baldwin! They’re expecting their first child together! Lovely stuff.

A rep confirmed the news to Reuters, though was shy on the details, refusing to comment on when the due date was. However, the pair have been giving some thoughts on the pregnancy to US TV Show Extra. “If I really shared with you how I felt, I would probably burst out crying," 30 Rock star Baldwin said. His wife works as a correspondent for the show, and also commented "It was a surprise, a wonderful surprise. Now I'm showing and it's getting to be much more, like, 'Oh, my God, this is actually going to happen'."

Baldwin already has one child from his previous marriage to Kim Bassinger, daughter Ireland, who was born in 1995. Bassinger and Baldwin were married for nine years between 1993 and 2002, just long enough for them to feature on a classic episode of The Simpsons as themselves, where they hide away on the outskirts of Springfield to avoid the public eye.  The actor will have plenty of time to help his new wife through her pregnancy, given that 30 Rock finally came to a close recently after a hugely successful six year run.
