Alec Balwdin's wife Hilaria went into labor on Friday, and the excited couple was seen arriving at Mount Sinai hospital in New York City today to welcome their baby girl.
"The baby hasn't arrived yet, but it could be any moment," a source told New York Post. It will be the first child for Alec and Hilaria, although the 55-year-old actor has a daughter, Ireland, from his previous marriage to Kim Bassinger. Hilaria, who has heavily pregnant before going into labor, recently revealed that she had resorted to unconventional methods to prompt her baby to make an appearance.
"I swear she can come now, I'm doing Jumping Jacks, pop her out, get her ready, not really Jumping Jacks," the fitness guru joked. Hilaria and Alec certainly spared no detail when it came to outfitting the perfect nursery for their bundle of joy, creating a pretty pastel room for their daughter that was even equipped with yoga mats. "She is going to be starting at an early age," Hilaria, who is a yoga instructor, said.
Born in Spain, Hilaria and Alec have been exploring name options for their little girl, and she revealed that they were making a compromise when it came to the nationality. "We're kicking it around. We want a name reflecting America as well as my family from Spain," Hilaria explained. While Hilaria's baby bump reached epic proportions, it didn't stop the Alec's active wife from joining him on the road for various promotions.
Aside from keeping up with her husband, Hilaria said that she relaxed with her normally intensive workouts while pregnant for the sake of her growing baby. "I've toned it down a lot. I don't do as much cardio," Mrs. Baldwin said. "This is about her. I can't get my heart rate up too high because my doctor told me babies can't sweat," the soon-to-be-mother explained.
One big adjustment for the Baldwins will be sharing their house with a baby after becoming accustomed to a quiet home. "We talk about her nonstop," Hilaria gushed about her daughter. "Our two little dogs are our babies and now we're going to add to the family with a non-fur baby," Hilaria explained.
