WhoHasTheRemote.com is proud of all parents who successfully balance careers with the demands of child-rearing. In this regard, perfect examples are often set by figures in the public spotlight. As US Weekly reveals, the star of NBC’s 30 Rock – a major hit amongst basic and satellite television subscribers – promises to be Mr. Mom to his upcoming little one.
Carrying the honors is 28-year-old fitness instructor Hilaria Thomas, whom Baldwin wed in 2012. This will be the second child for the 54-year-old actor, who also has a 17-year-old daughter with his ex-wife, actress Kim Basinger.
As one might recall, that first marriage dissolved in a custody dispute that put a strain on father/daughter relations. Consequently, the action-turned-comedic actor was sidelined from his film career during the 90s with movie night favorites such as Glengarry Glen Ross and The Hunt for Red October. With his second shot at parenthood, the eldest of the star-studded Baldwin clan promises to be a hands-on father.
Even though the gender of the new baby has yet to be identified, the expectant parents have already discussed numerous names. While little has been shared with the media, one could surmise that Baldwin has a thing for naming children after countries. Raised himself in a family of Irish, English, and French descent, it is perhaps no coincidence that his nearly-grown daughter is named Ireland. When parents go for unorthodox names, it can sometimes set precedents, gender-wise. “Ireland” sounds neither masculine nor feminine; nor would the names France or Spain – the nation of Thomas’ upbringing.
WhoHasTheRemote.com looks forward to the birth of Alec Baldwin’s second child. With lessons learned from his first turn at parenting, Who Has The Remote? wishes Alec Baldwin and his young wife the very best in rearing the little one.
