Alec Baldwin’s wife gave birth to a daughter named Carmen Gabriela.

The 30 Rock actor and his wife become proud parents to a daughter on Friday.

The 29-year-old yoga instructor was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital in New York on Friday after going into labour.

"We are overjoyed to announce the birth of our daughter Carmen Gabriela. She is absolutely perfect," the mother announced via her Twitter account.

The yoga instructor and Extra TV correspondent first announced her pregnancy in February.

Her husband, who she married in June 2012, is thrilled with the addition to the family.

“Alec is overjoyed,” a source told the Daily News' Confidential.

Hilaria had previously stated that she wanted a natural birth, however it is unknown whether she stuck with the plan.

It is Hilaria’s first baby however Alec, 55, has 17-year-old daughter Ireland Baldwin with his ex-wife actress Kim Basinger.

He was seen earlier that day going into the upper East Side medical facility with several bags and two pals helped him unload them.

"At this point, before the baby is born, he thinks he's going to be Mr. Mom," Hilaria quipped during a March appearance on The Rachael Ray Show. "We'll see if at 3 o'clock in the morning when the baby is screaming and we need to change the diaper if he's going to be Mr. Mom at that point!"

Alec currently stars in Woody Allen’s film Blue Jasmine and turned down a chance to be a super-villain part in a Marvel movie, according to a recent interview.

"I have [been offered a role in a superhero movie], but I won't mention which one," Alec said to radio DJ Howard Stern. "I don't want to undo somebody because they hired someone else to do it. But they asked me to play a villain in one of these Marvel Comics movies."
