Just seven weeks after welcoming the newest addition to their family, daughter Ilaria, Alec Baldwin and wife Hilaria Baldwin have much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving 2022.
And in recognition of the holiday, the yoga instructor and podcaster took to Instagram to show off what the couple is most grateful for: their seven children.
Hilaria led the effort to get all nine members to sit still long enough to take a family portrait to mark the occasion, which ultimately didn’t come easily.
Sharing gratitude: Alec Baldwin, 64, and wife Hilaria, 38, share the result of their ‘epic failed family photo’, which features all seven children, including seven-week-old daughter Ilaria, who sits on sister Carmen’s lap as brother Eduardo let tears fall on mama’s lap
While doing their best as parents in the situation, only one of the kids appeared to be crying during the photo shoot.
“Happy Thanksgiving Day from our epic failed family photo to what’s probably yours,” the 38-year-old Boston, Massachusetts resident wrote, referring to their not-so-perfect photo, which was still good enough to show the love between the Baldwins. 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 living room couch with her arms wrapped around two-year-old son Eduardo as he sat on her lap, shedding tears and seemingly crying out in displeasure.
Mom’s helpers: The mother of seven also shared footage of two of her boys helping to care for Ilaria when she suddenly woke up from a nap
Adorable: The boys even stroked the little girl, which seemed to calm her down
Dressed in a brown sweater, Hilaria did her best to calm things down by giving Edu a few kisses on the cheek.
Alec, 64, sits to his wife’s left with one of their four curious boys on his lap, who has been seen enjoying a snack.
The eldest of their seven children, nine-year-old Carmen, looks adorable at the other end of the sofa as she cradles little Ilaria, who has only just arrived on planet Earth on September 22.
At least two of the boys seemed to make a move towards the plate of cheese and grapes on the glass table in front of the couch.
The busy mom also shared a quick glimpse of one of the dishes she prepared for their holiday meal, captioning it, “Yum.”

Earlier this month, Alec filed a lawsuit against four people involved in the Western film Rust, alleging they were negligent in giving him a gun that went off and killed the film’s cameraman.
The death of Halyna Hutchins on October 21, 2021 sent shock waves through Hollywood and sparked a series of civil suits.
The actor is suing the film’s gunsmith and prop assistant, Hannah Gutierrez-Reed; assistant director David Halls; props master Sarah Zachry; and Seth Kenney, who supplied guns and ammunition to the film’s set, according to a filing Friday in a Los Angeles court.
Baldwin’s complaint follows a lawsuit brought against him and others on set last year by script supervisor Mamie Mitchell for their alleged role in the shooting that caused her great emotional distress.
In his lawsuit, Baldwin accuses Gutierrez-Reed of failing to verify that a Colt revolver he used during rehearsal was safe. The lawsuit also states that Halls failed to check the gun before declaring it safe and handing it over to Baldwin, and that Zachry failed to ensure that the guns used on the New Mexico set were safe.
Earlier this month, Alec (seen in September) filed a lawsuit against four people involved in the Western film Rust, alleging they were negligent in giving him a gun that went off and killed the film’s cameraman.
All individuals named in the lawsuit have denied any wrongdoing.
The gun Baldwin was holding during rehearsal — intended to be loaded only with blanks — instead fired a sharp shot, killing 42-year-old Hutchins and wounding director Joel Souza.
Baldwin reached a civil settlement with Hutchins’ family last month, details of which have not been disclosed. A judge has not yet approved the settlement.
Baldwin, who was both producer and star of Rust, has previously said he didn’t pull the trigger, though an FBI report determined the gun could not have gone off otherwise.
Production on the film will resume in January, filmmakers said, with Hutchins’ husband Matthew Hutchins taking on the role of executive producer.
“I have no interest in accusations or assigning blame,” Hutchins said in an earlier statement. “We all believe that Halyna’s death was a terrible accident.”

Investigators in New Mexico have not filed criminal charges, but have not ruled them out.
Meanwhile, on Wednesday, Hilaria shared some photos of herself and Alec preparing to go on vacation.
She would continue to showcase her multi-take skills in an effort to make things a little faster and smoother.
“I will never get tired of this cat backpack,” she wrote, referring to the backpack with the house cat, as she carried Ilaria in her arms. Everything packed and ready to go! Please be safe on your travels today.”
The couple, who celebrated their 10th wedding anniversary last June, wasted little time starting a family of their own, which all started with Carmen’s birth in August 2013, about 14 months into the marriage.
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 had 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.
