Alec once joked that he hoped to become a stay at home father if Hilaria ever got pregnant.

“I keep telling my future wife that I want her to get rich because I want to retire. She teaches yoga. I want her to become the world’s first billionaire yoga teacher. I know it is a long shot, but that’s the plan I’m sticking with right now. I want to have a baby and stay home and make the pancakes before I send my wife out to work every day to pay the bills.”

Alec, 54, who already has a 17-year-old daughter Ireland with ex-wife Kim Basinger.
