Alec and Hilaria Baldwin played host to a very special party on Thursday night – the much-awaited launch of HOLA! USA. It was the couple's first big date night since becoming parents to baby Leo, their third child who they welcomed on 12 September.

HOLA! USA launched last month, with the gorgeous Eva Longoria on her wedding day gracing the front cover. This is ¡HOLA!'s first magazine launch in the US and naturally it merited a spectacular party at Porcelanosa on Fifth Avenue, New York.

Eduardo Sánchez Pérez, president of ¡HOLA!, and Javier Junco, business director of ¡HOLA!, flew over from Madrid. Cristy Marrero, editorial vice president at HOLA! USA, was also in attendance.

Fernando Garcia, creative director of Oscar de la Renta, and designer Carlos Garcia Velez, were also on the star-studded guest list.

Nearly 200 guests from the business and arts world arrived to celebrate the launch. They were treated to a cocktail reception, followed by a performance by Buscabulla.

Eduardo Sánchez Pérez said: "We wish to remain the deliverers of good news and big exclusives. ¡HOLA! is a constant, it's always been here and never fails. It is a brand of trust, both for readers and the stars, which, for the past 70 years and more, has produced the best exclusives and news reports from around the world ranging from royalty to important events in celebrities' lives."

Javier Junco added: "We've made it to the US and we're here to stay!"

Today, ¡HOLA! has 33 franchises around the world, is published in nine languages and is read by 25 million people each week. The business has eight websites as well as ¡HOLA! TV, which reaches 14 million homes in the US and Latin America.

The publishing empire was founded in 1944 by Antonio Sánchez Gómez, Eduardo Sánchez Pérez's grandfather.

Hilaria looked phenomenal for her first red carpet post-baby appearance

Alec, 58, and Hilaria, 32, were taking a rare night off parenting duties. The Spanish yoga guru has just welcomed her third child with Alec, a baby boy Leonardo, and she looked sensational on her first big night out.

Hilaria showed no hint of having just given birth, wearing a black skirt and tight black off-the-shoulder top.

She surprised – and delighted – fans when she posted a selfie one day after giving birth, encouraging her followers to embrace their figures.

Hilaria welcomed her third child earlier this month

"I took this yesterday when Leonardo was about 24 hours old," she revealed. "I did the same thing right after Rafael was born."

"It always makes me a bit nervous to do something like this, but I feel that in the age of such strong body shaming, I want to do all that I can to normalize a real body and promote healthy self esteem," she wrote. "Many of you know that I love to show the process of life's experiences on the body and I am a firm believer in how a good diet and the right balance of exercise make us happy, healthy, and strong."

She added: "So from here on, I want to dedicate the majority of my #366daysoflivingclearly #hilarialcm daily posts to getting back in shape and I invite you to do it with me."
