It seems Alec Baldwin is going to have to find a new name for his baby.

The excited father-to-be had revealed plans to call the child Massimo – if it was a boy.

But his thrilled wife Hilaria revealed on Thursday that she is expecting a girl – and couldn’t be happier.

‘Alec and I are overjoyed that we are going to be welcoming a little girl into our lives,’ she said on Extra.

The baby will be a half-sister to Alec’s daughter Ireland, 17, from his first marriage to Kim Basinger.

Along with their two dogs – both also girls – it means Alec will be living in a very feminine household.

The 30 Rock star, 54, had rather obviously been hoping for a boy to balance things out.

Speaking on the Rachael Ray Show, former yoga teacher Hilaria said: ‘[Alec] had the idea for Massimo the other day. It’s a lovely name, I just don’t know.

‘That’s a very big name for a very little baby.

‘We have a different idea almost every single day.

‘I think you actually have to look at it once it pops out and say, “Who are you? What is your name?”‘

While the couple weren’t planning on having a baby so soon after their June 2012 wedding, they cannot wait to welcome the latest addition to their family.

Hilaria, who now works as Extra’s lifestyle correspondent, found out she was expecting at Christmas.

She said: ‘It was something that we both wanted – I don’t want to say it was a surprise and we didn’t want it – we were very excited when we found out.

‘But we just got married in June… so it was a really nice Christmas present.’
