Alec Baldwin's New Baby Has a Name With a Touch of Romance

alec and hilaria baldwin

Actor Alec Baldwin and his wife Hilaria just had a baby -- and it's a boy! Plus, the couple has graced this little guy with a truly romantic name: Rafael.


Rafael is Hebrew for "God has healed" and the name of an archangel and messenger of God. It has an undeniably sexy vibe that sounds like it's straight out of a romance novel.

Plus, lots of athletes have the name (i.e., tennis player Rafael Nadal, soccer player Rafael Aranzadi), as does the president of Ecuador, Rafael Correa. So it has a lot going for it.

Then, there's the fact that Hilaria was born in Spain, so gracing her kids with Latin names seems right up their alley. Their 1-year-old daughter is named Carmen, so the couple seems to clearly be continuing that tradition for her little sibling.

Congratulations to the couple!
