Meet the Baldwins: Who's who in Alec and Hilaria Baldwin's big family


With eight kids, the Baldwins are a busy family ... and they're about to add even more to their schedule.

Alec and Hilaria Baldwin announced their upcoming reality series, tentatively titled “The Baldwins,” in a kid-filled video they jointly shared June 4 on Instagram.

“We’re inviting you into our home to experience the ups and downs, the good, the bad, the wild and the crazy,” said Alec. "God help you all."

The actor, 66, married his wife Hilaria, 40, in 2012. Hilaria told Romper in 2023 that the trickiest number of kids to have was actually two.

“With two, I felt like I could still have a level of control; I was trying to micromanage everything,” she said. “And once I got to three, I just released and was like, ‘OK, it’s going to be chaos. We are outnumbered. You’ve got to let it go.’”

Ireland, 28

Alec shares Ireland with actress Kim Basinger. The pair were married for nine years before divorcing in 2002.

Ireland now has a daughter of her own, making Alec a grandfather.

Baby Holland, who just turned 1 with a cheerful Elmo-themed party, loves to spend sweet moments with Alec, who Ireland referred to on Instagram as "granddaddy pop pop peepaw (it’s a working title)."

Carmen, 10

Alec and Hilaria welcomed their first child together in August 2013, making Ireland a big sister for the first time.

“It’s a second chance for me, in a way,” Alec, then 55, told People. “Everybody knows I had a pretty unpleasant custody battle for Ireland.”

It appears that Carmen, now 10, could have a future in the beauty industry. Hilaria recently shared on Instagram a photo of herself and Carmen looking glam and gave her daughter all the the credit.

“Date night with my first baby.. she did both our makeup,” Hilaria wrote. “How quickly they get big and how amazing it is to be inspired by them. Carmen, you are such a special soul… just like your siblings… all unique and equally incredible.”

Rafael, 9

On June 17, 2015, — the same day Rafael was born — his dad hosted the Fragrance Foundation Awards in New York City.

Alec told Extra that he was involved in the delivery.

“I’m not gonna get into graphic detail, but I was on the team,” he said.

Alec went on to call Hilaria his “hero.”

“She’s tough,” he said.

Rafael, or Raf, as he's known to his family members, used to have a penchant for swearing. In 2021, Hilaria shared an Instagram story of Rafael, then in first grade, pledging to no longer use curse words.

Leonardo ("Leo"), 7

Leonardo Ángel Charles joined the family on Sept. 12, 2016.

In a tribute to Leonardo "Leo" on his 7th birthday, Hilaria gushed that he is "the sweetest soul."

"(You) bring so much positivity and beauty and laughter into our lives," she wrote. "You are my kitty buddy and I am grateful every day that I get to be your mama."

Romeo, 6

Romeo Alejandro David Baldwin joined the Baldwin brood on May 17, 2018.

“He’s here! He’s perfect!" wrote Hilaria on Instagram after his birth.

For Romeo’s 6th birthday, she turned to Instagram to share her son’s love of “soccer, art, doing random funny dances.” He’s still “working on loving the vegetables,” however.

Layered on top of her Romeo slideshow is John Lennon’s “Beautiful Boy,” demonstrating her love of the only Baldwin who shares her blue eyes.

Eduardo ("Edu"), 3

Eduardo Pau Lucas Baldwin was born on Sept. 8, 2020.

“We would love to introduce you to Eduardo Pau Lucas Baldwin,” Hilaria wrote in her Instagram birth announcement. “His name means ‘wealthy guardian of peace and light.’ We love you baby Edu.”

Hilaria had suffered two successive miscarriages before Edu's birth, making him her “rainbow baby.”

“I didn’t know so many tears existed in the body,” Hilaria wrote of the miscarriages on Instagram. “I’m trying to be present for my grief but understand that life goes on and there is still beauty, even in darkness.”

Edu seems to bring a lot of joy to the Baldwin family, as you can see here in this post from Alec.

María Lucía (MariLu), 3

Just months after welcoming their fifth child, Hilaria announced the arrival of a surprise sixth baby on Instagram with a photo showing the proud mom cuddling an extra child.

MariLu joined the crew in April 2021.

Close in age, Edu and MariLu are constant companions and are often photographed together.

Hilaria shared a chaotic and joyful photos from MariLu's third birthday on Instagram, noting the fact that she's a “tiny little actress” and makes her family address her by her princess name.

She added, “I love that you will go from princesses to playing ball and being all scrappy with your big brothers. What a force you are! You make life better every day and we feel so blessed that you came into our life.”

Ilaria, 9 months

Ilaria Catalina Irena Baldwin was born Sept. 22, 2023.

“She’s here! We are so excited to introduce you to our tiny dream come true. Both she and I are happy and healthy. Her Baldwinito siblings are spending the day bonding and welcoming her into our home. Much love to you all. We are so happy to celebrate this wonderful news with you,” Hilaria wrote on Instagram.

Ilaria’s first sentence was, “I want dada,” according to Hilaria: But this daddy’s girl isn’t afraid to throw her weight around and police “the wild and the crazy” Baldwin family.
