Alec Baldwin and his wife are expecting their first child together.

Hilaria Baldwin, 28, a yoga instructor, revealed the news to TV show Extra, where she's also a special correspondent, saying: "We're having a baby! It was a surprise, a wonderful surprise."

30 Rock star Alec said that his wife hadn't told him she was taking a pregnancy test, when he got the news.

"There's a scream I heard, which is a scream normally reserved if there's a spider in the house, not exaggerating," he 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."

The actor's publicist Matthew Hiltzik confirmed the baby is due late this summer.

The couple wed last June after a three-month engagement.

Alec, 54, is the father of a 17-year-old daughter, Ireland, from his previous marriage to actress Kim Basinger.

30 Rock concluded its seven-year run two weeks ago.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Capricorn:

Your dry humour will be very popular. It's always difficult bringing a large group of people together. Everybody feels like they are walking on eggshells. After cracking a few jokes, you'll put the group at ease. Resist the temptation to make fun of relatives, especially the more sensitive members of the group. Nobody likes feeling singled out. Watching a light hearted comedy can also be a great way to generate a festive atmosphere. This is a time when people can put their differences aside.More
