The Hype

Despite our wishes for a mini version of Alec Baldwin's zany, cut throat 30 Rock character (can you imagine how much that kid would get away with?) -- it's a real life baby announcement for the actor and his new wife Hilaria Baldwin.

After rumours in In Touch magazine that the pair were expecting, the loved-up couple confirmed the news to Hollywood news program Extra.

"We're having a baby!" Hilaria told the show, adding, "It was a surprise, a wonderful surprise."

Hilaria initially took a pregnancy test without her husband's knowledge. It was only when Alec heard screams that he came running.

"There's a scream I heard, which is a scream normally reserved if there's a spider in the house, not exaggerating," Alec said.

The scream was then followed by "I'm pregnant, I'm pregnant" from Hilaria as Alec ran up the stairs to the bathroom. "He runs up the stairs and I'm holding [the test] and showing it to him," Hilaria said.

Alec, 54, wed his yoga instructor wife, Hilaria, 28 in June last year.

The 30 Rock star has an 17-year-old daughter, Ireland, with ex-wife Kim Basinger.
