Alec Baldwin is recovering after undergoing a hip replacement surgery on Wednesday morning. The actor's wife Hilaria, who is expecting their fourth child, first revealed that the former 30 Rock star was going into surgery via an Instagram post on Tuesday evening. 

I got the classic Lyme disease (symptoms) for each successive summer, for five years, every August, like this black lung, flu-like symptoms, sweating to death in my bed.

"Its been a dayjury duty, crabby kids, vet, meetings, pancakes that went oh so wrongbut Im ending it with an amazing experience watching Alec interview Michael Wolff for #heresthething," she wrote on Tuesday, "and now we rest because tomorrow morning we are in the hospital bright and early for his hip to be replaced. Think good thoughts for us. We are gonna eat lightly, relax, and take deep breaths."


Following Baldwin's early morning surgery, his 34-year-old wife updated fans with a photo of the couple holding hands while the 59-year-old was resting in a hospital bed. She captioned the picture, "Thank you for your kind wishes. I know many of you are anxious to hear how he is doing. We have been here since very early...All went well in surgery and I am with him in recovery."
