"We’re beyond happy with this surprise."

Hilaria Baldwin is expecting her seventh child with her husband Alec Baldwin. The couple who married in 2012, are extremely excited to welcome the newest addition to their family. The American actor, and producer released an exclusive statement to PEOPLE confirming the much-speculated news. He said, "We have 'somos un buen equipo' engraved on our wedding bands. We say that to each other all the time at home — that we're a good team. One of the most beautiful things my children have experienced with a big family is how the heart can grow with every new sibling."

He further added, "Our capacity to love continues to expand and we can't wait to embrace our new little one this fall!" This exciting news comes after Hilaria suffered a miscarriage and pregnancy loss within seven months in 2019, per USA Today. She posted on National Rainbow Baby Day in August 2021 recalling her lost children with a message for her youngest, María and Edu. 

She wrote, "When I lost my babies in 2019, I will always remember thinking my tears would never stop. I will always be sad, they still flow from time to time, and I hold this sadness written permanently in the pages of my life’s book." She also added, "We open and heal out loud not only for ourselves, but to let our sisters know that they are not alone. My mantra was: I’m not ok, but I want to be ok. This hurts, I want to process, I’ll allow myself to vent the pain, and I want to see the beauty in life again."



Hilaria announced the news of her pregnancy on Instagram, She posted a clip of her and Alec revealing the news to their six children, Carmen Gabriela, 8, Rafael Thomas, 6, Leonardo Ángel Charles, 5, Romeo Alejandro David, 3½, Eduardo "Edu" Pao Lucas, 18 months, and María Lucía Victoria, 13 months.

She wrote in the caption, "After many ups and downs over the past few years, we have an exciting up and a huge surprise: another Baldwinito is coming this fall." She added, "We were pretty sure our family was complete, and we’re beyond happy with this surprise. I’m sharing with you the moment we told the kids—as you can see, they are super excited!" She further wrote, "Our new baby is a very bright spot in our lives. A blessing and a gift during such uncertain times."



Apart from his six children with Hilaria, the 63-year-old actor also has a daughter, Ireland Baldwin, with his ex-wife Kim Basinger whom he divorced in 2002. The Baldwin family is extremely excited to expand their family this fall.
