Alec Baldwin, 54 and his new wife, Hilaria Thomas Baldwin, 28, confirmed Tuesday that they are expecting. The baby is due this summer.
Extra had a few more details, probably because Thomas, 28, a yoga instructor who married the 30 Rock star last summer, also is a “lifestyle correspondent” for the TV gossip show. They sat for an interview with AJ Calloway today.
“It was a surprise, a wonderful surprise,” she told Calloway. She said she secretly took a pregnancy test, then startled Baldwin, 54, with her screams. At first he thought she had found another spider on the wall, then realized they were screams of delight.”
People often discuss maternal age in relationship to having a baby but what about the father’s age? Is there a point when a dad is just too old to start again? (Baldwin has an 18-year-old daughter with Kim Basinger.) We know men can produce the sperm needed at a very old age, but is there some point where they are too old to chase a baby on the playground, teach a child to ride a bike or a teen to drive a car?
I’m 40, and I can’t imagine getting up during the night with a new baby or chasing a new baby around. I just feel too old to start again.
Do you think men have that feeling? Is there an age that’s too old be a dad even if you can father a child?
