Alec Baldwin Baby: Actor And Wife Hilaria Announce They're Expecting A Girl (VIDEO)

Looks like Alec Baldwin will have to give up the name Massimo, which he had reportedly wanted to name his baby boy, because -- surprise! -- Alec and his wife Hilaria are having a baby girl.

Hilaria Baldwin (nee Thomas), 28, announced the news on Twitter yesterday, writing:

According to "Extra," for which Hilaria serves as a lifestyle correspondent, the couple joke that with two female dogs and a baby girl in the house, Alec will really be outnumbered.

Alec, 54, already has a 17-year-old daughter, Ireland, with ex-wife Kim Basinger. After the two divorced in 2002, Alec made headlines when a voicemail he left his then 11-year-old girl leaked to the press, and he was heard calling her "a rude, thoughtless, little pig." He had since apologized, and Ireland recently said the whole thing was blown out of proportion.

Ireland also commented on her father's new love, Hilaria, and said she's like a "big sister" to her. Now she can expect a little sister, too.
