Alec Baldwin's heavily pregnant wife has taken to gobbling garlic in an effort to naturally kickstart the labour process.

Hilaria Baldwin, who confirmed her baby news in early February (13), appears to have passed her due date and reveals she is starting to get desperate to meet her unborn child.

Taking to her blog on Tuesday (06Aug13), she writes, "Just tried to induce labor by making gazpacho with extra garlic. I think it might kill us first... Or the next person we talk to?? sorry guys".

The baby is Hilaria's first child with the 30 Rock star; he is also dad to 17-year-old model Ireland, from his first marriage to Kim Basinger.
