After inviting her to come out for her interview, Alec jokingly shakes his wife's hand before leaning in to give her a hug and a kiss on the cheek.
"Do you guys know that he shook my hand and didn't kiss me for six weeks when we first met?" Hilaria reveals immediately after the applause dies down.
"You shouldn't tell them that!" Alec exclaims in response.

I want to share with you that I am most likely experiencing a miscarriage. I always promised myself that if I were to get pregnant again, I would share the news with you guys pretty early, even if that means suffering a public loss. I have always been so open with you all about my family, fitness, pregnancies...and I don’t want to keep this from you, just because it isn’t as positive and shiny as the rest. I think it’s important to show the truth...because my job is to help people by being real and open. Furthermore, I have no shame or embarrassment with this experience. I want to be a part of the effort to normalize miscarriage and remove the stigma from it. There is so much secrecy during the first trimester. This works for some, but I personally find it to be exhausting. I’m nauseous, tired, my body is changing. And I have to pretend that everything is just fine—and it truly isn’t. I don’t want to have to pretend anymore. I hope you understand.
So, this is what is going on now: the embryo has a heartbeat, but it isn’t strong, and the baby isn’t growing very much. So we wait—and this is hard. So much uncertainty...but the chances are very, very small that this is a viable pregnancy. I have complete confidence that my family and I will get through this, even if the journey is difficult.
I am so blessed with my amazing doctor, my dear friends, and my loving family...My husband and my four very healthy babies help me keep it together and have the perspective of how truly beautiful life is, even when it occasionally seems ugly. The luck and gratitude I feel that I am my babies’ mommy, is wonderfully overwhelming and comforting.
In your comments, please be kind. I’m feeling a bit fragile and I need support. I’m hoping, that by sharing this, I can contribute to raising awareness about this sensitive topic.
The only time we could have a little birthday celebration today for daddy’s birthday today was to visit him at work @jimmyfallon ! So we made a party in his dressing room 😂! Thank you @shumcake for the yummy cake...and for giving us superpowers 🦸🏻♂️🦸🏻♀️🦹🏼♀️🦸🏼♂️🦸🏼♂️🦸🏼♂️
We missed him 💛
I don’t remember what time exactly I met you, but it was around now, 8 years ago 💜
Mommy is happy tired...I know we have been using “self-care” a lot recently. It’s so important....especially when we feel so stretched thin as parents. One of my favorite ways to give back to myself is focusing on my health. If I feel good, I’m capable of such patience and happiness. I’m a better mom, partner, friend, human. We all know that I am a big advocate of exercise and healthy eating. I’ve also been learning so much about skin care. I hope you listened to @dermatologyandlasergroup on @mombrain this week. Dr. Akhavan is amazing...especially for a mama who is breastfeeding and still interested in having another kid. I love his versatility and his ability to take care of my skin in a way that feels safe for my body and my babies—without crazy chemicals that could be harmful. I hope you enjoy the podcast. The link is in my bio 💛
I had such a wonderful time at the SAG awards...but nothing can compete with this 🥰
This dress ❤️ @carmenmarcvalvo
I found another Baldwin boy...and this time it’s not one I’ve made 🤗 @thebillybaldwin
I brought them all up to SNL to see daddy before work....I wanted a photo, this was the best I got 😂🤪! Don’t even ask about the doll Carmen is holding 😭 (they have no idea what it is....it will magically disappear overnight 🤗)
It’s exercises like these that I use to define my legs. Inner thigh and quad. Knees are bent in the first exercise and you are activating the inner thighs as you squeeze them together. I show three different options in this vid...so watch all the way through. VERY IMPORTANT to pull the knee cap into the quad (thigh) as you do the second exercise (where you straighten the legs). This will beautifully define your upper leg. 10 reps of each. 3 sets 💛. I’ll put a little tutorial in my stories #letsmove2019 (before you ask: my sweater is @gap (40% off 💫) and my pants are @lululemon high rise wunder under in luxtreme)
I’m teaching tomorrow @mergenewyork ! Sign up in link in my bio! In light of Carmen’s video yesterday, I am super nostalgic of all the workouts I’ve done with her during her 5 years...remember baby Carmen yoga 😭🥰??

Hilaria goes on to reveal that, while in the early days of their relationship, Alec would tell her "all these things, like, 'I'm gonna marry you. I'm gonna spend the rest of my life with you. We're gonna have a ton of kids.'"
"And then he would shake my hand at the end of the night," she says.
"I didn't want you to think that I just wanted to have sex with you!" Alec explains.
"Hey, look, it worked!" Hilaria quips back.
The couple continues their appearance by doing an audience Q&A, which largely focuses on their four children, Carmen, 6, Rafael, 4, Leonardo, 3, and Romeo, 1. Alec also has a 24-year-old daughter, Ireland, from a previous relationship.
"It works well. I'm a very type-A personality and I need to be the boss. So he goes off and he doesn't bother me too much while I parent," Hilaria says of raising kids with Alec, before revealing one of the challenges they face.
"He'll do the typical dad stuff that drives me crazy. Like, I'll have the kids ready for bed and he'll go in there and be like, 'Let's wrestle!' And then he leaves and he's like, 'Enjoy putting them to bed,'" she says.
Hilaria also shares how they work to maintain their thriving relationship amid their busy day-to-day life.
"He said to me when we had our first [child], 'Not only are you going to be my wife and the mother of our child, but you're my girlfriend. You're always gonna be my girlfriend,'" Hilaria recalls. "And so we relate to each other like that [with] our banter. We're always flirting."
"In terms of timing, you just gotta find time! You have to make it a priority because people have needs," she adds.
Prior to Hilaria's sit-down with Alec, the Saturday Night Live actor opens the show with a hilarious monologue, in which he pokes fun at his connection to Justin Bieber, who's married to his niece, Hailey Bieber.
"I've been in show business a long time and I've done a lot of great things. I have an Oscar nomination. I won seven SAG Awards for 30 Rock -- that's actually the record for most SAG Awards by any other actor. I have a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame," he says. "But of course my greatest achievement is, I'm Justin Bieber's uncle."
"My niece is married to the Biebs. And I just want to say to you all up front, no, I can't get you concert tickets," he continues. "I don't know Justin that well, but I know Justin's friends with Ellen, so he's probably watching. So Justin, if you're out there, congratulations on your new album and please follow me on Instagram."
