Congratulations are in order for Alec Baldwin and his wife, Hilaria Baldwin. On Wednesday, the couple announced that they have welcomed their fifth child together, a baby boy. The happy news comes after the couple suffered two consecutive miscarriages.

The little boy joins the couple's four other children – 6-year-old Carmen, 5-year-old Rafael, 3-year-old Leonardo, and 2-year-old Romeo. Baldwin is also dad to 24-year-old daughter Ireland, whom he shares with his ex-wife, Kim Basinger. The couple had announced in April of this year that they were expecting another child, sharing the news in an Instagram video that showed off her growing baby bump. In the post, Baldwin wrote that she didn't "have the words to express how this [ultra]sound makes us feel," announcing that they had "just got the great news that all is well and all is healthy with this little munchkin."

The pregnancy news came after the couple had suffered two miscarriages — one in April of 2019 and a second in November of that year. Hilaria had opened up about both of her miscarriages on social media, writing after the first miscarriage that she was "surrounded by such love and I feel so fortunate." Speaking with PEOPLE shortly after announcing her pregnancy, Hilaria said that she "knew right away" that she was pregnant.

"I knew before I could take a test that I was pregnant," she told the outlet. "I've done this so many times that I really know that feeling. Even though I knew it would be early, I started taking a test every other day to kind of give myself a sense of how far along I would be. And right when I thought it would turn positive, it did!"

Throughout her pregnancy, Hilaria had often provided updates, sharing photos of her growing baby bump as she counted down the days to her little one's arrival. At this time, the couple has not revealed when their little boy was born or any other details other than the gender.
