Alec Baldwin Says He and Wife Hilaria Don’t Plan on Having Any More Kids After Baby No. 3

04/10/2016 at 03:45 PM ET

While Alec Baldwin says he and wife Hilaria are “very lucky” with their two young children (and baby no. 3 on the way), they don’t plan on having a fourth.

“We had our daughter and we said, ‘How could another one of these be wrong?’ Then we had our son, and we said, ‘How could another one of these be wrong?'” Baldwin, 58, told PEOPLE at Stand Up to Cancer’s Standing Room Only Saturday night event (with donors American Airlines and Merck) at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City. “But now we’re thinking, if we had another one, it wouldn’t be wrong, but it would be very stressful. We’re very lucky, we’re very happy.”

(In September, soon after son Rafael‘s June birth, Baldwin told PEOPLE, “I’m dying to have another child with my wife.”)
And though both daughter Carmen and Rafael are under the age of 3, that hasn’t slowed them down one bit. “Our children are like squirrels in the yard,” Baldwin joked.

“I’m very excited, but I want my wife to have some time off,” he said of her third pregnancy. (Her response? “I told him we need to put a TV in our bedroom.”)

“We have 12 children at home with the sitter,” pregnant Hilaria said, adding, “Carmen put shoes on from my closet and was trying to come with us tonight,” she added.

For now, an ideal date night for mom and dad is “dinner with the two of us when we get to go to bed early,” Hilaria said. So what comes next, if not more kids?

“Vacation,” Baldwin said — eventually.

“I just worry about my wife and I want her to rest,” he said. “So after this is over, we’re going to work hard and play hard. A lot of vacations.”

If you don’t want em then you’d better put a snip on it..

Stacey McRae on

By the end of the year she will be a single mother of 3 and ruing the day she ever met him.

Sandra Lindsay on

time to get snipped!

Amy on

Given that he is almost 60, it’s probably a good idea they don’t have anymore. He’s going to be almost 80 by the time his youngest can drink.

also- i doubt she’ll rue the day she met him, even if they divorce, she has three children and that’s something she’ll never regret.

Meghan on

Amy, you mean she’ll have the child support for three children. The only reason a “30” year old has three kids with a 57 year old.

KL on

Just because you don’t “plan” on having more kids doesn’t mean it still can’t happen lol !! So wrap it up if you dont plan on having anymore!!!!

Kathy on

At 58 he’s grandfather material. How is this fair to his kids? When they get out of high school he’ll be 80! Gesh!

Megan on

Oh don’t worry, she’ll “accidentally” get pregnant right before he serves the divorce papers.

Chris on

What comes next?? My parents died at 61 and 65. There you go.

Lorett on

Yeah, must be really hard work for Hilarious to organize 3 nannies and taking countless selfies. Poor thing must be exhausted.

Taco on

They will continue to have kids. Hilaria cant go more than a minute without posting pregnant belly selfies in her underwear. She will need something to fulfill her day

Vanna on

I understand he is 58 years old and have 2 kids under 3, plus a new one is coming, maybe overwhelmed for him.

Note how Hilaria says “sitter” instead of referencing one of their five nannies. Alec got in BIG trouble with his wife when he thanked their children’s nannies because ol’ Hilaria wants the world to believe she’s a hands-on mother. We aren’t stupid, Mrs. Baldwin. Go sell your upcoming, CAA-directed, ghost-written book to the idiots.

He didn’t have a good experience raising his first daughter with his ex wife. He’s got a second chance at happiness and the opportunity to have a large family. Who wouldn’t want a second chance at happiness…whatever that may be?

E on

He didn’t have a great experience raising his first daughter. Maybe he’s finally changed his ways and found happiness. Who wouldn’t want another chance at happiness ….and maybe a big family, if it were a possibility?

Ilona on

it’s easy to have a children….when you have a lot of nanny !!!!
