Another Baldwin baby! Alec Baldwin and his wife, Hilaria Thomas Baldwin, welcomed their first child together, a baby girl, on Friday, Aug. 23.

"We are overjoyed to announce the birth of our daughter Carmen Gabriela. She is absolutely perfect. @ABFalecbaldwin @IrelandBBaldwin," the first-time mom announced via Twitter.

The yoga instructor and lifestyle correspondent for Extra announced in March on the entertainment show that she and the actor, 55, were expecting a daughter. "Alec and I are overjoyed that we are going to be welcoming a little girl into our lives," she said.

That same month, the 29-year-old told Us how her first pregnancy was faring at the Academy of the Arts Lifetime Achievement Awards in New York City. "At the beginning, I wanted pineapple and citrus, which was not typical for me, but then you get heartburn so I had to stop that," she said. "I don't have really crazy cravings. I definitely eat more than I did before, but nothing too crazy."


Heartburn aside, she explained to Us that she was spending time doing as much baby research as possible. "I'm reading a lot, although I'm learning it's not good to read too far in advance because then you freak out," she said. "I saw a birthing video the other day and I was like, 'That's too much information for me! I don't want to know that yet!'" 

The Spanish-born fitness enthusiast kept her workouts on track throughout the pregnancy — attending hourlong toning sessions at New York City's Physique 57 seven days a week. "They make me feel amazing — exhausted, yet invigorated," she told Us in May. "I just feel much better when I exercise. If I can't get to a class, I'll walk around the city or go for a light jog."

Her hubby, already dad to 17-year-old daughter Ireland with ex-wife Kim Basinger, was just as excited to be a second-time dad, Thomas Baldwin explained. "At this point, before the baby is born, he thinks he's going to be Mr. Mom," she said, laughing, during a March appearance on The Rachael Ray Show. "We'll see if at 3 o'clock in the morning when the baby is screaming and we need to change the diaper if he's going to be Mr. Mom at that point!"

In fact, Baldwin himself hinted in a June interview with Vanity Fair that he'd be willing to trade in his Hollywood life to be a full-time family man this time around.

"I have one dream in my life and that is that this daughter I'm having — she comes to me about seven or eight years from now, she has a friend, and she's at her house and she says, 'Daddy, Susie's mom says you used to be on TV. Daddy, is that true?' She has no knowledge of me as a public person. That would be heaven for me," he said. "I'd love to [quit acting] if I could, yeah. That would be the greatest thing in the world." 

The couple married in June 2012 and first announced they were expecting on Feb. 12, 2013.
