Alec Baldwin Expecting Fifth Child With Wife Hilaria

Alec Baldwin and wife Hilaria are expecting their fifth child together, six months after experiencing a miscarriage.

Hilaria shared the news on Instagram, with a video of the foetus' heartbeat, writing that it was "still very early... but we have learned that there is a little person inside of me".

"The sound of this strong heart makes me so happy -- especially because of the loss we experienced in the spring," she said, referring to the miscarriage she publicly shared with her followers online as it was happening.

She continued on to write that she was sharing the news early on because she doesn't want to have to hide the pregnancy from the public.

"These first few months are tough with exhaustion and nausea...and I don’t want to have to pretend that I feel ok," Hilaria explained, adding that there was another important reason she'd opened up about the pregnancy.

My one request is that the media not send paparazzi to follow me or buy independent paparazzi photos, hence encouraging them. I want to remain peaceful during this very early time in my pregnancy and getting chased around by cameras is not in the doctor’s orders.

Alec and Hilaria have four children together, daughter Carmen, 6 and sons Rafael, 4, Leonardo, 3, and Romeo, 1. Baldwin also has a daughter, Ireland, 23, from his marriage with Kim Basinger.
