Actor Alec Baldwin and his yoga-instructor wife, Hilaria, confirmed Tuesday they are expecting their first child.
In an interview together with the syndicated entertainment news program "Extra," Hilaria Baldwin, 28, said happily, "We're having a baby! It was a surprise, a wonderful surprise." She took a home-pregnancy test without telling her husband, she said, and then she screamed at learning she was expecting.
"There's a scream I heard," said Alec Baldwin, "which is a scream normally reserved if there's a spider in the house -- not exaggerating. 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."
He ran up the stairs, Hilaria said, where "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," Alec Baldwin said. "We are really sharing something special."
