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

Pisces:

Keep precious possessions safe. Don't leave valuables in a parked car; instead, stow them in the boot. Lock your doors. Create passwords that are hard to crack. Simple measures like these will save you a world of trouble. The last thing you want is to waste time filing police reports. If you do become the victim of theft, stay calm. Ask the authorities what you can do to protect yourself from future crimes. Smart decisions are your best defence.More
