“The christening of our son. What a lovely day,” Alec captioned a photo of the smiling family of three.

“Rafaelito…” was his simple caption on another, more serious picture, in which Alec holds his son close to his cheek as Hilaria strokes her son’s head.

Hilaria also shared a photo from her baby’s big day, this one a close-up of a dozing Rafael.

“My beauty boy,” she captioned the picture.

The Baldwins welcomed Rafael to the family in June, and have posted plenty of adorable snaps of their baby son to their Instagram accounts ever since.

These two’s genes don’t mix well. Mean I know. Some people who are attractive just don’t have very good looking offspring.

Pig, Junior?


I’m just waiting for him to go on another tirade about paparazzi & his need for privacy.

What a beautiful baby. God Bless.

We were just talking about Alec watching the latest episode of Mike and Molly. The radio whispering scene reminded us of the SNL skit with Betty White, Alec etc. which was funny as crap!

Adorable pictures!

Their son is so cute.

They seem so genuinely happy and their babies are adorable. Beautiful photos.

Making negative comments about a child’s appearance should never be done on this forum or any other. Frankly, it makes the commenter look like a jerk, just for starters. As far as Alec choosing to share a picture of a family event, or a family member…it was his picture, his choice, not an intrusive papparazzi sticking a camera in their children’s faces and yelling at the same time. Congratulations on their happy day, and their children are precious!

Wow their son is almost 7 months old now, felt like the child was born like last month or so, time just goes so fast.

Pretty babies! She seems like a great mother. I love that the little girl is bilingual.

Why does it say family of three? They also have a daughter.

Pam on

You all wonder why kids bully other kids? They learn it from their parents. “If you don’t have something nice to day don’t say anything”

Ovz on

They also have a daughter over 2 years old and haven’t seen a picture of her for quite some time.

Irene on

After exploiting their children for publicity, the Baldwins will ask for privacy for them when they file for divorce.

Those two kids look like identical twins!

These are cute pictures.

I’m amazed that Baldwin didn’t call his son “a fat little pig.”
