Hilaria Thomas, the Spanish wife of Alec Baldwin, recently revealed her baby bump for the first time at the 2013 MET Gala. The yoga instructor and the Hollywood actor are about to celebrate their first wedding anniversary (they were married on June 30, 2012 in New York) and are going through one of the happiest moments of their lives after learning that the baby they are expecting is a girl.
Alex Baldwin, a future stay-at-home dad?
“Alec and I are very happy to announce that we are expecting a girl,” said Hilaria to the Extra television network. And while she confesses she was craving pineapples (“I mean tanker containers of pineapples. Pineapples I did not eat before. It was bizarre”), her husband joked he’s been experiencing pregnancy pains too; “My boobs hurt. My boobs are killing me, so sore,” he said. “My jeans do not fit. My pants, I cannot buckle them. “
The actor became more serious (or maybe not?) when he spoke of his plans to stay at home with the baby while Hilaria continues to teach yoga at Yoga Vida center. He told Extra, “My dream is to be home with the baby, standing in the doorway, saying goodbye to Mommy.”
Ireland Baldwin: “I’ve always wanted to have a sister”
This will be the second daughter to Baldwin, who is the father of Ireland, born during his first marriage to actress Kim Basinger. Although divorce between the two stars was long and tortuous, Ireland (17) and Baldwin have a cordial relationship now and were spotted together on New York’s streets, hours before the 2013 MET Gala.
Ireland Baldwin has stated she’s looking forward to meeting her new sister. “I always wanted a sister. I want her to know that I’ll be here for whatever she needs,” she told People magazine. Also, in case there were any doubts about it, she has made clear that she’s doing very well with her father’s new wife: “I love Hilaria. She saved my father by making him get in shape. And she rescued him from that horrible hole that is loneliness.”
Ireland, who has inherited the spectacular beauty of her mother and is taking her first steps as a model, said she’s also very happy for the good relationship that Baldwin and Basinger currently maintain. “My parents were able to make things work. In fact, now they can get together on Thanksgiving Day just to make me happy. The two of them continue to be very attentive to me,” she said.
Hilaria Thomas sued by former student
The only problem that currently overshadows the happiness of the Baldwin-Thomas couple is the fact that one of Hilaria Thomas’ students filed a suit against her five months ago, claiming that he suffered serious and severe injuries during one of her classes. Spencer Wolff, who is a Yale Ph.D. candidate who blogs for the Huff Post, told The New York Post that Thomas instructed him “to perform a dangerous activity at a wall.” According to the New York Post, the lawsuit says that the overcrowded studio and Thomas’s “negligence” were the factors that caused the student to fall and shatter a sixth-floor window.
The Post reported that Wolff was doing a handstand when he crashed into the window and caused his left leg and foot to be ripped open by the various shards of broken glass, cutting his leg in five places below the knee. “There was a large amount of blood,” a student witness said. The suit states that all of the students were put in “extreme danger” by Thomas by allowing the class to “exceed a safe and/or maximum allowable number of persons.”
Yoga Vida has yet to speak out on the suit, while Alec Baldwin tweeted “Litigation is the preferred tool for those who want to harass, obfuscate or extort.” That´s what I call a real gentleman, standing up for his woman!
