Alec Baldwin is setting the record straight on “why” he and his pregnant wife, Hilaria Baldwin, have such a large family.
“People comment about how many children we have and ask why,” the actor, 64, captioned an Instagram video, Page Six reports
“This is why,” he continued. “The thing in this life that matters most to me are these people.”
In the social media upload, Hilaria, 38, handed their youngest two children bottles of milk after dressing Eduardo and Lucia, both 1, in matching puppy onesies.
The toddlers’ outfits were complete with floppy ears and a tail.
“Some kids want to be superheroes and royals, my babies want to be puppies… as they are animal super fans,” Hilaria wrote on her own account. “They dressed up last night.”
The former yoga instructor and the 30 Rock alum also shares Carmen, 8, Rafael, 7, Leonardo, 5, and Romeo, 4.
In March, they announced that they have a baby girl on the way.
“After many ups and downs over the past few years, we have an exciting up and a huge surprise: another Baldwinito is coming this fall,” Hilaria captioned her Instagram announcement video.
“We were pretty sure our family was complete, and we’re beyond happy with this surprise,” she continued at the time. “Our new baby is a very bright spot in our lives.”
The following month, Alec explained why they keep expanding their family.
“People ask why,” the New York native captioned an Instagram video of Lucia. “This is why. Being a parent is the ultimate journey.”
Alec and Hilaria tied the knot in June 2012, 10 years after he divorced his ex-wife, Kim Basinger.
The Oscar nominee and the former model, 68, share daughter Ireland, 26, and Hilaria has been vocal over the years about her strong relationship with her stepdaughter.
“I never tried to be her mum,” the “Living Clearly Method” author told Us Weekly in March 2020. “I think that’s really important. … We are just like girlfriends.”
