Hilaria Baldwin: ‘Fourth child is the first we actually planned for’

Alec Baldwin and his wife Hilaria weren’t surprised to discover they were expecting their fourth child, because it was the first time they had actively tried to fall pregnant.
The couple announced its family was expanding again in an Instagram post on Friday (03Nov17), and on Saturday (04Nov17), Hilaria revealed they were having another boy.
The yoga instructor has since admitted this pregnancy has already been different from when she was expecting their other kids, four-year-old daughter Carmen, and sons Rafael, two, and Leonardo, one, because they were never planned.
“I never knew how many kids I wanted to have,” she tells People magazine. “I didn’t know how much I’d like it. And I really, really like it.”
Hilaria and Alec began discussing the prospect of adding another baby to their already busy family life soon after Leonardo was born last year (16).
“We were like, ‘Oh, should we have another kid?'” she recalls. “We were like, ‘You know what? Let’s try something different – let’s try.’ The other ones, it’s not like we were like, ‘Oh my God, how did this happen?’ But this is the only one we (planned for).”
“We’re really excited,” Hilaria adds of their third son, who is due in the spring (18).
Carmen is also looking forward to having another sibling, although she was hoping for a little sister.
“She was a little bit disappointed,” the 33-year-old shares. “(She said), ‘How about you have a girl first, then you can have another boy?’ I was like, ‘It doesn’t work that way! I don’t get to choose.’ She’s like, ‘No, you don’t understand, mummy. It’s going to be a girl.’ I was like, ‘No, I promise. I promise you it’s a boy.'”
And although Hilaria knows she will have her work cut out for her with four little ones to take care of, she isn’t ruling out trying for another girl in the future.
She says, “Seeing how much my daughter would like to have a sister, do we try for that? I have no idea. I’ve had so many because I really like them and we have such fun times. I’m going to have four kids in a little over four years and it’s just one of those things where I’m going to let life lead me in that direction.”
Hilaria wed Alec in 2012. The actor is also dad to 22-year-old daughter Ireland from his first marriage to Kim Basinger.
