While discussing his happiness with girlfriend Hilaria Thomas on “Piers Morgan Tonight” on Wednesday, the British host asked the “30 Rock” star if he’d like to have more children.
“Have I thought about having more kids? Oh sure, that would be great, that would be heaven, that would be fantastic,” Alec told Piers, who two months ago welcomed a new daughter to his own British brood.
Alec then went on to make a joke about his potential plans to have more children later in life. (His daughter Ireland, with ex-wife Kim Basinger, is now 16.)
“As my friend said to me, ‘When you have children, typically in a second marriage, when you’re older and you get married again to a woman who would have children, you must always remember that you make sure [the children] attend a college where the commencement ceremonies are held in a facility with a wheelchair accessible ramp,’” Alec added, tongue-in-cheek.
The actor also addressed dating a younger woman – Hilaria, a yoga instructor, is 27, while he is 53.
Alec revealed he actually sought advice from Tony Bennett, who is married to a much younger woman by several decades, wife Susan Crow.
“I said to Tony, ‘I’m dating a woman who is… younger than I am — she’s a lot younger than I am — and I sometimes think about that and I know, Tony, you’re with Susan and you’re quite a bit older than her,’” Alec recounted. “And he looked at me and he goes, ‘Yeah, people say that to me all the time and I say to them, ’Consider the alternative.’”
