Just seven weeks from welcoming the latest addition to their family, daughter Ilaria, Alec Baldwin and wife Hilaria Baldwin have a lot to be
And in recognition of the holiday, the Yoga instructor and podcaster took to Instagram to showcase what the couple are most grateful for: their seven children.
Hilaria led the effort to get all nine members to stay still long enough to take a family portrait to mark the occasion, which in the end didn’t come easy.
Sharing gratitude: Alec Baldwin, 64, and wife Hilaria, 38, share the result of their ‘epic fail family photo’, which includes all seven of the children, including seven-week-old daughter Ilaria, who’s sitting on sister Carmen’s lap as brother Eduardo sheds tears on mom’s lap
Doing the best they can as parents in the situation, only one of the kids looked to be crying during the photoshoot.
‘Happy gratitude day from our epic fail family photo to what is probably yours,’ the Boston, Massachusetts native, 38, wrote, in reference to their not-so-perfect photo, which was still good enough to showcase the love between the Baldwin family.
‘Our love and gratitude to all of you for being wonderful forces of light in our lives.’
Appropriately, the matriarch sat front and center on a couch in the living room with her arms wrapped around two-year-old son Eduardo as he sat on her lap shedding tears and seemingly crying out with displeasure.
Mommy’s helpers: The mother of seven also shared images of two of her boys helping take care of Ilaria when she suddenly woke up from a nap
Cute: The boys even caressed the baby girl, which seemed to sooth her
Dressed in a brown sweater, Hilaria did her best to calm things down by offering up a few kisses on Edu’s cheek.
Alec, 64, is to his wife’s left with one of their four inquisitive boys on his lap, who’s seen enjoying a snack.
The oldest of their seven kids, nine-year-old Carmen, looks adorable on the other end of the couch cradling little Ilaria, who only just arrived on Planet Earth on September 22.
At least two of the boys appeared to making a move towards the plate of cheese and grapes that are on glass table situated in front of the couch.
The busy mom also shared a quick glimpse at one of the dishes she prepared for their holiday meal that she captioned: ‘Yum.’
‘Yum!’ The busy mom also gave her nearly one million Instagram fans and followers a look at some of her Thanksgiving meal preps
Multi-taker: Hilaria showed off her multi-tasking skills by carrying Ilaria in her arms and the family’s cat in a kitty back pack, as the couple got ready to do some traveling
Travel ready: I’ll never get tired of this kitty back pack. All packed and ready to go! Please be safe in your travels today,’ the Boston native shared to her Instagram followers
The previous day, Hilaria shared some images of herself and Alec preparing to head out to do some holiday traveling.
She would go on to put her multi-taking skills on display in an effort to help move things along a little faster and smoother.
‘I’ll never get tired of this kitty back pack,’ she wrote, in reference to the backpack containing the family cat, while carrying Ilaria in her arms. ‘All packed and ready to go! Please be safe in your travels today.’
The couple, who celebrated their 10th wedding anniversary this past June, wasted little time is starting a family of their own, which all began with Carmen’s birth in August 2013, which was about 14 months after tying-the-knot.
She and her parents would help welcome four brothers to the Rafael, seven, Leonardo, six, Romeo, four, Eduardo, two, before Maria Lucia Victoria, 20 months, arrived, via surrogacy.
Carmen also got a second sister with the arrival of Ilaria, seven weeks, on September 22.
Alec also has a daughter Ireland Baldwin, 27, from his first marriage to actress Kim Basinger, which ended in divorce in 2002.
