What a sweet photo!! They welcomed baby Carmen Gabriela on August 23rd, and Alec sees it as a bit of a second chance at fatherhood.
“It’s a second chance for me, in a way,” the actor, 55, tells PEOPLE exclusively in its new issue. “Everybody knows I had a pretty unpleasant custody battle for Ireland.”
With his 17-year-old firstborn “well-adjusted and as happy as one can be,” the former 30 Rock star says the past is behind him — his priority is to devote himself to the ladies in his life. “We just want things to be easy, to be nice,” he explains.
New to baby bliss is wife Hilaria, 29, who can’t get enough of the newborn. “I knew I was going to love her a lot, but it’s incredible how deeply,” she tells PEOPLE.
The yoga instructor and Extra correspondent often finds herself foregoing sleep to stare at Carmen — but with their 2-week-old‘s days and nights reversed, the couple are starting to feel the effects.
“She sleeps like a rock all day. And at night she’s like, ‘Let’s have a conference,’” says Alec.
Adds Hilaria, “Now I’m getting to the point where if I don’t sleep, I’m going to start walking into walls.”
I hear you on that, chica. You can read a lot more about them and their life with baby in the new issue of People mag on Friday!
