Alec Baldwin and his wife Hilaria announced they’re expecting a baby girl later this year.
The pair — who already share six children — posted a sentimental video on Instagram in which they revealed their seventh baby will be a girl.
In the video, each member of the Baldwin family offered advice to the unborn baby.
“It’s always been both fun and meaningful for me to find out what is the sex of my baby, yet, as I grow and learn, I want to do it a bit differently this time around,” she captioned the post.
“We can only guide, encourage their spirit, listen, share our experiences, and learn from them, as we watch their own journey. We can provide as good a life as we can, but the rest is up to our baby to discover their own, unique self,” she added.
It’s not known what name the pair are planning on giving their daughter.
The couple has chosen traditionally Spanish or Italian names for their expansive brood, including daughters Carmen, 8, and María Lucía, 1, and sons Rafael, 6, Leonardo, 5, Romeo, 3, and Eduardo “Edu,” 1. Alec also shares 26-year-old daughter Ireland Baldwin with ex-wife Kim Basinger.
“1. I lost a baby at 4 months in 2019 (maybe some of you remember). I think about her daily and understand that motherhood has its beauty and its darkness,” Hilaria shared on her Instagram Story at the time. “But I will wait until I’m past the point when I lost my daughter.”
Hilaria said she also wanted to keep the baby’s gender private in a bid to be gender-inclusive, before finally doing a 180 and sharing it with the world.
“2. Many of you know how connected I am to the LGBTQIA+ community and I am talking with a few close confidants on how I can be thoughtful and inclusive on helping to curate a more gender-inclusive world,” Hilaria added.
The Baldwins faced a serious scandal last year when Alec was named in a wrongful death lawsuit filed in February by the family of Halyna Hutchins, the cinematographer killed in an on-set shooting.
The “30 Rock” alum is accused of firing the single bullet that killed Hutchins on the set of the Western movie “Rust” on Oct. 21.
Fighting back tears in an interview since the shooting, the actor claimed he had no idea there were real bullets in the gun and that he “didn’t pull the trigger.”
The investigation into Hutchins’ death is ongoing.

Doja Cat needs surgery on her tonsils. The “Get Into It (Yuh)” singer took to Twitter to say a doctor had to cut into her left tonsil because she had an abscess in it.
In a follow-up post, she said her tonsils got infected before the Billboard Music Awards earlier this month and she was taking medication for it, but she forgot and drank wine and vaped “all day long.”
She said she’s now quitting the vape for a while. Doja Cat added she “might have bad news for her fans.”
Today she confirmed in another tweet that she has to have surgery on her tonsils asap and her recovery will cause her to cancel several shows including her tour with The Weeknd.
“I wanted you to hear it first. Unfortunately I have to have surgery on my tonsils asap. The surgery is routine but the recovery is going to take a while due to swelling. That means I have to cancel my festival run this summer as well as The Weeknd Tour. I feel horrible about this but can’t wait for this to heal and get back to making music and create an experience for y’all.”
