Baldwin warned to learn Spanish for daughter

Alec Baldwin’s wife has warned him to learn Spanish for their unborn daughter or risk them talking behind his back.

The 54-year-old star married yoga instructor Hilaria Thomas in June. The couple recently announced they are expecting their first child, a baby girl.

Hilaria is insistent their daughter learn about her Hispanic heritage.

“We're having a girl and we definitely want her to speak Spanish," She told Us Weekly magazine.

The mother-to-be said one idea is to have a “no English” rule in the home.

But that could pose a problem for Alec, who is far from fluent in her native tongue. She’s warned him if he doesn’t learn she’ll be speaking Spanish with their daughter whether or not he understands.

"It's a little tricky because my husband doesn't speak Spanish, so that'll be a little tricky in the house," Hilaria confessed.

"But maybe we will have our own conversation and he'll have to learn. We can talk behind his back. I cannot wait!"

Hilaria admitted Alec may be feeling a little overwhelmed by the amount of estrogen in the home.

The actor is also father to a 17-year-old daughter, Ireland, with ex-wife Kim Basinger.

The couple also share two female dogs.

“I turned to Alec yesterday when the ultrasound was done and was like, 'I get to buy pink things now!'" Hilaria gushed. "We have two girl dogs and me and now we have the baby girl, so he's just going to be surrounded by girls,” she mused.

Alec recently said he was looking forward to being a father to another bundle of joy.

The actor previously said he would love to be a stay-at-home dad now that his comedy sitcom 30 Rock ended after seven seasons on the air.

“My dream is to be home with the baby,” he said.

“Standing in the doorway, saying goodbye to mommy. Mommy is going to work now. Bye mommy, see ya when you come back!”

    2015 Chevrolet Trax small SUV rolls back to America

    For the past two years, car shoppers from Acapulco to Winnipeg could wander into their Chevy dealers and kick the tires on a city-sized sport utility vehicle named the Trax — and about 90,000 have done so. Today, Chevy revealed the version of the Trax it will bring to the United States, for those less well-heeled buyers who want the shape of an SUV without the window sticker they usually carry.

    Ford Transit Skyliner concept revives the ultra-luxury van

    “Once you do stand-up, you don’t want to go back.” No, we’re not talking about comedy, but rather an emerging trend in luxury transport that’s bringing us ever taller, more capacious, more pimpdillyicious limousines. The quote came from a Ford designer, Tim Stoehr, predicting an increase in interest in limos based on big vans like the new Transit. Of course, these are nothing new; up-fitters have taken quite kindly to the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter, and apparently Ford is chomping at the bit to get in on the action, too. So Ford enlisted the help of the largest Ford dealer in the world, Galpin Auto Sports in Van Nuys, Calif., to help design and build its first super-lux Transit concept, dubbed the Skyliner.

    Automakers worldwide have gradually (some would say grudgingly) attempted to make their high-profit and highly popular SUVs as efficient and clean-running as their lower weight passenger cars — namely through the grafting of a plug-in hybrid system.

    Amazon to release smartphone later this year: report

    Amazon is preparing to release a smartphone in the second half of 2014, thrusting itself into a market already crowded with Apple and Samsung models, The Wall Street Journal reported. The company aims to announce its new product by the end of June and ship to customers by the end of September in time for the holidays, the Journal said in a Friday report, citing unnamed people briefed on the matter. Amazon, it said, hopes to differentiate its phone from other models with a screen that displays hologram-like three-dimensional images, which can be viewed without special glasses. Earlier this month the retailer unveiled a new media streaming device, Amazon Fire TV, which it touted as simplifying the experience of watching video online.
