The birth comes 22 months after the couple - who tied the knot in 2012 - welcomed their first child, a daughter named Carmen.

However, the impending birth has not stopped Hilaria from continuing with her busy lifestyle, which has recently included penning a fitness and wellness book.

Meanwhile, Alec - who already has a 19-year-old daughter, model Ireland, from his marriage to actress Kim Basinger - revealed earlier this year just how much he was looking forward to the birth of his baby boy.

He said: "(I'm) blessed, very blessed. We're having the baby and that's almost surreal to me."

Hilaria also admitted she was thrilled Carmen will have a brother close to her age.

She said: "We're really excited to have another baby! We definitely wanted Carmen to have a sibling near her age."
