Alex Baldwin and Wife, Hilaria, AnnounceTheir Baby Girl: Carmen Gabriela

“Carmen” is the name of an opera by French composer, George Bizet, which features a beautiful and fiery gypsy who becomes involved in a romantic triangle that doesn’t end well for her—but the music and dancing are a treat for the audience. The Latin name refers to Our Lady of Mount Carmel (aka Virgin Mary). However the protagonist in the opera isn’t much like her namesake, which is why she’s so fascinating.

Gabriela is an Italian form of Gabrielle and reminds me of Gabriela Sabatini, a beautiful, athletic Argentinian tennis star who won the U.S. Open, in 1990. Altogether, the name creates an aura of  beauty, drama, romance and athleticism.

If Carmen Gabriela were a book or movie, reviewers might say it “has everything.” So Alec and Hilaria Baldwin’s baby girl is off to a very good start: two thumbs up.
