It will be a celebration in the United States when the seventh (and supposedly last) baby Baldwin arrives.
Hilaria and Alec Baldwin – who are expecting their seventh child together – joked that their next child will have an ‘all-American’ name while chatting with guests at the New York Philharmonic’s Spring Gala on Wednesday night in Alice Tully Hall, a Page Six spy shares exclusively.
Alec, 64, was overheard telling veteran entertainment reporter Tom Murro that they were going to name their newborn “Babe Ruth or Chase Manhattan” after the baseball legend or mainstream banking company.
The couple have chosen traditional Spanish or Italian names for their large brood, including daughters Carmen, 8, and María Lucía, 1, and sons Rafael, 6, Leonardo, 5, Romeo, 3, and Eduardo “Edu”, 1 year old. Alec also shares his 26-year-old daughter, Ireland Baldwin, with ex-wife Kim Basinger.
It makes sense that Hilaria – who announced her last pregnancy in March – would choose an American name for her child because she is from Boston and not Majorca, Spain, as she previously led the public to believe.
In December 2020, the 38-year-old yoga teacher and lifestyle expert (née Hillary Lynn Hayward-Thomas) was accused of faking her Spanish accent and lying about her name and heritage for years.
Addressing her fluctuating speech at the time, Hilaria explained that her childhood split between Massachusetts and Europe contributed to the inconsistency.
“I’m that person, if I speak a lot of Spanish I tend to mix them up or if I speak a lot of English,” she said. “I mix it up, it’s one of those things that I’ve always been a little uncertain about.”
The Baldwins faced a much bigger scandal this year when Alec was named in a wrongful death lawsuit filed in February by the family of Halyna Hutchins, the ‘Rust’ cinematographer killed in a shooting on the tray.
The ’30 Rock’ alum is accused of firing the single bullet that hit and killed Hutchins, then exited his body and struck director Joel Souza in the collarbone, while filming the western movie in New York. Mexico on October 21.
The actor claimed in a tearful interview that he had no idea there were real bullets in the gun and that he “didn’t pull the trigger.”
Despite the recent drama, the Baldwins appeared to be in “good spirits” at the New York Philharmonic party, our insider says.
“They were very friendly with everyone at the event and clearly enjoyed their evening together,” the source notes. “They just looked really happy.”
