Alec Baldwin, the actor perhaps best known for his role opposite Tina Fey on the hit sitcom 30 Rock, is the proud patriarch of a large family.

Up until he married second wife Hilaria Baldwin in 2012, Alec was a dad to only one kid. However, after that, the couple expanded their family many times. In a June 2023 post for Father’s Day, the It’s Complicated star described fatherhood as the “ultimate adventure.”

Alec Baldwin Often Gushes About Fatherhood

In an Instagram video shortly after he and Hilaria announced they were expecting baby No. 7, Alec addressed his large family in a caption under an Instagram video of their daughter María laughing.

“People ask why,” Alec captioned the post. “This is why. Being a parent is the ultimate journey.”

In a March 2022 statement to People following their seventh pregnancy announcement, Hilaria and Alec explained the special message engraved on their wedding bands, the Spanish translation of “We are a good team.”

“We say that to each other all the time at home — that we’re a good team,” the couple explained at the time. “One of the most beautiful things my children have experienced with a big family is how the heart can grow with every new sibling.”

They added that their “capacity to love continues to expand” with each new addition to their large family.

Alec is the author of a memoir, titled A Promise to Ourselves: A Journey Through Fatherhood and Divorce, which was released in September 2008. The book was published when his oldest daughter, Ireland, was 12 years old and years before the birth of his first child with Hilaria.

A description for the book describes Alec as “using a very personal approach” to help readers “avoid the anguish he has endured” at the hands of the “family law industry.”

Do Alec and Hilaria Baldwin Plan to Have More Kids?

Hilaria revealed that she and her husband did not plan on having more kids during a June 2023 interview with Romper.

“This is probably, most definitely, almost completely my last baby,” she quipped to the outlet at the time. “I’m always afraid to say it. I was putting away my maternity clothes recently and was like, ‘I’m afraid to give them away, because then I’ll find out I’m pregnant.'”
