Just a day before his wife, Hilaria Baldwin, candidly revealed she was “most likely experiencing a miscarriage,” Alec Baldwin teased the idea of welcoming another baby. During a visit to The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday, April 3, the Saturday Night Live star dished that he wouldn’t be against expanding their ever-growing brood.
“We would have another one. We always say when the baby comes, you look at the baby and you’re like, ‘What are we gonna do, send it back?'” Alex quipped on what was his 61st birthday. He jokingly added, “All of our kids are like magical. So, we would have another one and then after that … my wife would have to have her second husband or next marriage.”

Alec and Hilaria — who are already the parents to daughter Carmen, 5, and sons Rafael, 3, Leonardo, 2, and Romeo, 10 months together — have been flip-flopping back and forth as to whether they should have another kiddo. The Boss Baby star has another child, 23-year-old Ireland Baldwin, with ex Kim Basinger. Unfortunately, another Baldwin baby is currently out of the cards for the pair after Hilaria, 35, shared the news of her likely miscarriage with her more than 500,000 followers on Instagram.
“I always promised myself that if I were to get pregnant again, I would share the news with you guys pretty early, even if that means suffering a public loss,” she wrote in the caption of a pic of her wearing only a bra and underwear. “I don’t want to have to pretend anymore. I hope you understand.”

I want to share with you that I am most likely experiencing a miscarriage. I always promised myself that if I were to get pregnant again, I would share the news with you guys pretty early, even if that means suffering a public loss. I have always been so open with you all about my family, fitness, pregnancies…and I don’t want to keep this from you, just because it isn’t as positive and shiny as the rest. I think it’s important to show the truth…because my job is to help people by being real and open. Furthermore, I have no shame or embarrassment with this experience. I want to be a part of the effort to normalize miscarriage and remove the stigma from it. There is so much secrecy during the first trimester. This works for some, but I personally find it to be exhausting. I’m nauseous, tired, my body is changing. And I have to pretend that everything is just fine—and it truly isn’t. I don’t want to have to pretend anymore. I hope you understand. So, this is what is going on now: the embryo has a heartbeat, but it isn’t strong, and the baby isn’t growing very much. So we wait—and this is hard. So much uncertainty…but the chances are very, very small that this is a viable pregnancy. I have complete confidence that my family and I will get through this, even if the journey is difficult. I am so blessed with my amazing doctor, my dear friends, and my loving family…My husband and my four very healthy babies help me keep it together and have the perspective of how truly beautiful life is, even when it occasionally seems ugly. The luck and gratitude I feel that I am my babies’ mommy, is wonderfully overwhelming and comforting. In your comments, please be kind. I’m feeling a bit fragile and I need support. I’m hoping, that by sharing this, I can contribute to raising awareness about this sensitive topic.
The mom-of-four explained that the “chances are very, very small that this is a viable pregnancy” because, even though the embryo has a heartbeat, “it isn’t strong, and the baby isn’t growing very much,” Hilaria wrote. “So we wait — and this is hard. So much uncertainty.”
Although suffering a miscarriage is a huge pill to swallow, the “Mom Brain” podcast host said there’s a silver lining through all the pain. “I am so blessed with my amazing doctor, my dear friends and my loving family,” she gushed. “My husband and my four very healthy babies help me keep it together and have the perspective of how truly beautiful life is, even when it occasionally seems ugly. The luck and gratitude I feel that I am my babies’ mommy, is wonderfully overwhelming and comforting.”
We’re thinking of you, Hilaria!
