There’s a new boy in the Baldwin bunch.

Alec and Hilaria Baldwin have welcomed their second child together, a son, the proud new parents confirmed Wednesday on social media.

“We are happy to announce the birth of Rafael Thomas Baldwin,” the new mama captioned an Instagram photo of her holding hands with her newborn baby, who has mom’s maiden name for his middle.

In January, the couple announced they were expecting a sibling for 21-month-old daughter Carmen Gabriela by sharing a photo of the growing family — and Hilaria’s baby belly — on the beach.

“The sun has set on 2014. 2015 is going to be very exciting as we are thrilled to announce we are expecting another little addition to our family!” Hilaria, a yoga instructor, wrote alongside the snapshot.

The following day, Hilaria took to Instagram once more to hint at the sex of their baby on the way.

“So we have an announcement to make … can you guess??” she teased, sharing a photo of the family’s shoes, including a pair of navy baby loafers.

Since the announcement, Hilaria has been keeping her followers in the loop throughout her pregnancy with regular updates on her growing baby belly. “As the time gets closer, I think I’m gonna miss toting my little ambiguity around … tho can’t wait to meet him,” she captioned a recent shot of her bump.

Alec, 57, is also dad to Ireland, his 19-year-old daughter with ex-wife Kim Basinger.

Blessings with the new baby!
glad he is not Alec Jr!
I hope dad is a better dad and husband then he was with Ireland and Kim!

The comments on here are rather disgusting. If you don’t have anything nice to say… Clearly Alec and Ireland have patched up their rocky relationship. They seem very close now. Leave the past in the past. They all seem happy. Congratulations to all of them.

What, no selfie of her delivering while in a yoga pose? Poor kids have such narcissistic parents.

Christina on

This is mean, and I know it but I kind of can’t wait for the epic divorce that will surely happen. I love Alec but he is one of those guys you couldn’t pay me to have a relationship with!

Seriously??? on

Poor kid. Best of luck little guy. You’re going to need it with the 2 wackos you have for parents.

Alec has always been a great dad to his older daughter. He’s not going to read the nonsense posted on here by lonely loser trolls.

Susan on

I didn’t realize they had a 26 year age difference. I wonder what they talk about.

Heidi on

He seems to have an affinity for choosing names that reflect heritage – Ireland, then Carmen and Rafael 🙂

Shelley Greene on

Attention – Christina, I don’t think you could find any man that would pay you to have a relationship with you. You’re character is awful and looks probably awful as well!
Susan, STFU

Congrats! Love these two together!

Wow!! The ‘do-gooders’ commenting on the posts they find offensive are truly creepy themselves. Such anger over stranger’s comments is not natural and mirrors Alec’s past behaviour. Lots of pots calling the kettles black.

Now, go away and raise your kids.

I look at this image and see a father and his grand daughter celebrating the coming of his great grand child. These old men need to stop marrying and conceiving children with women young enough to be their daughters and granddaughters. It’s simply not healthy for the offspring.

Hey Shelley, happily married for 12 years, bite me B!

life goes on on

Not a fan of hers.

congratulations on the birth of your son. I wish him a healthy, happy and enjoyable life

Surprised he wasn’t given an Irish name with Alec’s ego and their daughter’s name reflects her heritage. Nice name for a celeb’s kid in a long time!

Congrats on a healthy baby boy. Nice name for a boy.

RoastLamb on

Bet he’s named after tennis player Rafael Nadal, because both Hilaria and Rafa come from Majorca. Anyway, it’s a lovely boy’s name and one I would choose for myself too.

And as ever, I’m fascinated by where does all the hate come from. Don’t you get exhausted by all the negativity you harbour? I mean, really, you’d feel soo much better without it..

Anyway, congrats to the couple and their bigger family.

Lyanna on

Can this creepy old man get his nuts cut now for the love of Pete? Ugh.

SAR on

Very nice name.

Dana on

That’s a great name…Rafael…so great. Rafe for short…finally some normal names🙂

KL on

Love the name Rafael, i think its so cool!!

carla on

With Hilaria’s Spanish background, why are people surprised by her children’s names? She was born in Mallorca, Spain and spent time both there and here in the U.S. growing up as a child. Her parents still live in Madrid.

His little hand looks exactly like his daddy’s;)
