The 30 Rock star tells David Letterman about what he and pregnant wife Hilaria are experiencing.
“Being around a woman when she’s pregnant and I’m older now — quite a bit older, actually — it’s just really … it’s amazing,” Alec says.
“Like my wife, the pregnant woman, the hormonally-charged woman if you will – uh, it’s thrilling. It’s a thrilling thing to observe.”
Alec is already a father to 17-year-old daughter Ireland from his marriage to Kim Basinger.
The 54-year-old Alec says he's trying to make sure that 28-year-old Hilaria keeps up her strength — although it isn't always easy.
“She’s been super-fit her whole life and nutritionally very conscious. I’ll say to her, ‘You want to eat smart and keep up your nutritional values, but you gotta eat, you’re having a baby,’” Alec says. “I’ll go, ‘Do you want me to go get you some pineapple?’ And she’ll be like, ‘I don’t know.’”
Then again, Hilaria isn't always the best judge about when she's feeling hungry.
“There’s a container of pineapple that will probably serve four people. I put it on the counter [and] I go, ‘If you want some pineapple, here it is,’” he says. “I go to the other room, I plug my phone in to charge it [and] sure enough, I walk back — three-quarters of the pineapple is gone, and she’s like, ‘I was very hungry.’”
Then again, who doesn't love pineapple? It's refreshing and delicious!
Also unpredictable is Hilaria's bathroom schedule.
“My wife will be announcing, 'I have to pee every five minutes, I can’t believe it!'" Alec informs us. “And then the next day she’s like, ‘I don’t have to pee at all today. Something’s wrong!’ I’m getting whiplash here: pee, no pee…”
Okay, so it's cute that Alec is so up-to-date on the pregnancy, but do we really need to know how often Hilaria pees? We think not.
