In a news cycle dominated by celebrity breakups and feuds, it’s refreshing to find a Hollywood couple whose relationship isn’t just surviving, but thriving.

When Alec Baldwin met his future wife Hilaria in 2011, the couple swiftly wed and just six years later are the proud parents of 4 (!).

Though such a fruitful union is a thing of increasing rarity in the realm of celebrity, perhaps Alec and Hilaria’s success can be credited to the latter’s outsider status. Not only was then-28-year-old Hilaria not famous, but she had very little familiarity with pop culture — she told InStyle last year that when she met Alec, she “knew nothing about him.”

She’s not ruling out baby no. 5 ... 

Although she and Alec have four children ages 5 and under (Carmen, 5, Rafael, 3, Leonardo, 2, and Romeo, 3 months), the family-oriented couple isn’t completely overwhelmed by the idea of a fifth Baldwin baby. In fact, Hilaria says her daughter, Carmen, is “committed to a fifth child,” though mostly because she’s eager for a baby sister to help balance out the boy-heavy clan. “She was a little bit disappointed,” Hilaria said of Carmen when she learned she’d be welcoming a third brother. “[She said,] ‘How about you have a girl first, then you can have another boy?’ I was like, ‘It doesn’t work that way! I don’t get to choose.’”

She’s an author.

An undeniable expert in balancing the myriad demands of this thing called life, Hilaria shared her secret to having (and maintaining) it all in a book called The Living Clearly Method: 5 Principles for a Fit Body, Healthy Mind & Joyful Life.

She’s a lifestyle correspondent for Extra.

As if Hilaria wasn’t already doing, like, everything, the mother of four also acts as a lifestyle correspondent for the celebrity news program, and has conducted interviews with celebrities like Jane Fonda, Emma Stone, and Tony Bennett.

Like Alec, she’s also an NYU alum.

Hilaria studied dance and art history at the downtown Manhattan-based university 10 years after Baldwin earned his BFA from the institution.
