Meet Alec Baldwin‘s baby boy!

The actor introduces his second child with wife Hilaria in this week’s issue of PEOPLE Germany as the new family of four pose with their son Rafael Thomas and proud big sister Carmen Gabriela, 21 months.

The Baldwins welcomed their son on June 17 and took to social media to announce his arrival — where they also posted a photo of Hilaria holding hands with their newborn.

But hours later, while stepping out to serve as host of an event, the new dad admitted things had not exactly gone according to plan.

“We come in [to the city] for Hilaria to go to the doctor … everything’s fine. She wakes up Tuesday — 1:30 in the morning, not feeling good, then 2:30 in the morning feeling really lousy,” Baldwin, 57, explains. “We go to the doctor at 9:30 a.m., he says, ‘Come back at 2 and I’ll tell you if it’s real.’ We go back at 2 p.m. and they admitted her.”

Despite the early delivery, the actor, who just wrapped the play All My Sons, couldn’t be more proud of his “hero” wife.

“It was amazing. Someone else is doing all the hard work, and you’re there for them … You sit there and go, ‘I would do anything to make this easier for you,’ ” he said.

Presumably he will treat the boy better than he did his first daughter. Bet he won’t call this kid a pig.

I can’t wait for the divorce and the custody battle.

It must have killed her to have to pose w/ the 3 of them instead of just her in her underwear!!

Gest, I think the same thing !!

There’s tons of photos of the baby on The Daily Mail, beautiful little boy. There’s also no need to be so nasty. This is a happy family with devoted parents. The fact you’re still referring to the phone call of Alec with his daughter is ridiculous. That was 10 years ago and nobody cares, except the trolls who think it’s a big deal and like bringing it up again and again.

@Guest54- no one cares anymore? Wrong. Verbal abuse of a child is NEVER forgotten. Do you think Ireland can forget it? Doubtful.

I wonder if it’s hard for her to sit and post in clothes (even if they are falling off her body) rather than hokey yoga poses in next to nothing.
