I keep forgetting that Hilaria Baldwin is pregnant AGAIN. She’s already had three children with Alec Baldwin: Carmen Baldwin, Rafael Baldwin and Leonardo Baldwin. She’s apparently expecting another boy. Alec is 59 years old, Hilaria is 34 (allegedly). They’ve been having babies constantly. Which is their call, I mean, it’s not my body, or my marriage or whatever, but having all of these babies with a nearly 60-year-old man would give me pause. Hilaria recently chatted with People Magazine about the age difference between herself and Alec and how they approach child-rearing differently because of the generational difference.
Alec and Hilaria Baldwin get in their date nights when (and how) they can.The mother of three — who’s currently expecting the couple’s fourth child together, a baby boy — opened up to fellow moms Daphne Oz and LaTonya Yvette during a recent sit-down for PEOPLE’s Mom Talk, dishing on how she and her famous husband keep the spark alive.
“I’m the kind of person where I could get so wrapped up in my kids and I could lose my relationship a little bit and just assume, ‘Don’t you love doing this too? Isn’t this so much fun?’ ” explains Hilaria, 34.
“[Alec]’s a little bit more old school,” adds the fitness expert. ” ‘You’re the mom, you take care of the kids, and then I will come and go and I will read a book with them every once in a while’ kind of thing.”
Hilaria says the couple’s 26-year age difference has made them prioritize the things to “understand about each other” in their relationship and parenting techniques. Alec has also helped himself and his wife make “date night” a regular occurrence — even if it’s just a low-key hangout without their kids (Leonardo “Leo” Ángel Charles, 18 months, Rafael Thomas, 2½, and Carmen Gabriela, 4½).
“Most nights, we have date night, which could mean we’re doing a puzzle,” she says. “On Valentine’s Day, we ordered takeout. My husband had just gotten his hip replaced. We walked, on one of his first [post-surgery] walks, to go get food, and we ate it out of the plastic,” Hilaria admits. “And then we looked at each other like, ‘Can we go to bed now?’ ” she adds.
Again, I can’t imagine having babies with a man who is “old school” about just popping in to read a book with the kids every now and then. But it’s not my marriage. Clearly something is working for them because she keeps getting pregnant (even with his bad hip!). I actually think Hilaria might be painting Alec as less involved than he is really – judging solely from social media posts and paparazzi photos, Alec always seems to be pretty well-bonded with his kids. Of course, he also has that “life comes at you fast” look, like he can’t remember how many times Hilaria has been pregnant now either.
