Baldwin and wife expecting a baby

Alec Baldwin and his wife Hilaria

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

Virgo:

A close relationship could reach a rocky patch. Resist the urge to emotionally withdraw from your loved one. Be willing to address the issues that have been pulling you apart. You could hear some painful things about your behaviour. Instead of getting defensive, be open to changing for the sake of your relationship. Think back to a time when someone you loved worked hard to gain your affection and approval. Pattern your attitude after theirs. Being flexible is more important than being right.More
