He doesn”t know the gender yet, but that hasn”t stopped Alec Baldwin picking the perfect baby boy name.
The 30 Rock star is expecting his second child with his yoga instructor wife Hilaria Thomas, and already has plans for a bellissimo Italian moniker.
Speaking on the Rachel Ray Show, Hilaria, 28, said: “Alec had the idea for Massimo the other day. It”s a lovely name but I don’t know.”
“That”s a very big name for a very little baby.”
The pair, who got hitched in June 2012, revealed that they were expecting in their first child together in February.
Although the pregnancy came as surprise, Hilaria revealed that the pair couldn”t be happier.
“It was something that we both wanted – I don”t want to say it was a surprise and we didn”t want it – we were very excited when we found out.”
“But we just got married in June … so it was a really nice Christmas present.”
It seems that Hilaria was so surprised by the new arrival that her screams worried her acting star husband Alec.
Not aware that his wife was suspecting that she was expecting, Alec heard screams emanating from the bathroom without a clear cause.
“There”s a scream I heard, which is a scream normally reserved if there”s a spider in the house, not exaggerating,” Alec, 54, said.
“Normally, I will be reading a book. We”re in the country, it”s quiet, some time to really relax and unwind and sometimes, once a month, you hear “Ahhh, Alec, Alec!” I come upstairs, and there”s a spider on the wall. So then I hear that scream again, but it was not a spider.”
He added: “We can joke all about it, but it”s honestly the most amazing moment. We are really sharing something special.”
Now his 30 Rock role has ended, Alec is looking forward to tackling the challenges of being a stay-at-home dad.
Speaking to Wonderwall, the star said: “I keep telling my future wife that I want her to get rich because I want to retire.”
“She teaches yoga. I want her to become the world”s first billionaire yoga teacher. I know it”s a long shot, but that”s the plan I”m sticking with right now.
He added: “I want to have a baby and stay at home and make the pancakes before I send my wife out to work every day to pay the bills!”
Alex also has a daughter, Ireland, 17, from his marriage to actress Kim Bassinger.
