6 pieces of advice for father-to-be Alec Baldwin
Stay away from gob-lobbing, make Tina Fey the godmother, and avoid Canada.

ALEC BALDWIN’S MISSUS Hilaria is reportedly with child.

The couple married in New York last June and now the actor and the yoga instructor are expecting their first child, according to In Touch magazine.

It’s 17 years since Baldwin first became a dad, so here are some little nuggets of advice to prepare him for the pitter-patter of tiny feet.

1. Don’t call your baby after another country

Baldwin is already daddy to daughter Ireland (her mother is Baldwin’s ex Kim Basinger).

If he calls this baby Fiji or Alaska or Democratic Republic of Congo he’ll just look silly.

2. Don’t leave another one of these messages


3. Don’t embarrass the kid with PDAs like this

4. Make Tina Fey the godmother

5. And Steve Martin the godfather

6. Make sure the baby isn’t born in Canada
