(USA TODAY) -- Their baby girl is due next month, but Hilaria and Alec Baldwin haven't yet finalized how they'll handle the always-interesting issue of baby photos.

Will they release them via Twitter, or in a splashy magazine spread, as they did with their wedding pix? Or perhaps not at all?

"We haven't decided yet. The most important thing for me is to raise my child in a way that she's going to be happy," she says. "We're much more thinking about diapers."

Things are looking nothing but up for the downward-dog devotee.

The dark-haired stunner, who is the co-owner of downtown studio Yoga Vida, has emerged as a major presence in her own right over the past year.

That's her, gabbing with talk-show chef Rachael Ray. That's her, using her Twitter feed to both solicit pregnancy tips and share sage sayings with her followers. That's her, serving as Extra's lifestyle correspondent. And that's her, promoting Olay Ultra Moisture body wash as her must-have pregnancy product.

"I love my job. I work with happy people, which makes everything much better," she says. "I get to meet incredible people. The shoots that I do, I feel like I am helping convey messages that help people."

The New York-based yoga instructor met Baldwin at downtown eatery Pure Food and Wine. Last June, they got married. And this February, the Baldwins announced that they're expecting their first child together, a daughter due in August.

Being in the spotlight brings its own set of challenges for Baldwin. "Yes, it's odd. It's not a normal thing. At the same time, I'm in love. I'm happy. I have my health. I'm having a baby," she says. "You look at what's positive."

But being with the never-boring Baldwin brings with it its own unique brand of drama. We're referring, of course, to the Twitter tumult that ensued after the Daily Mail accused Mrs. Baldwin of using the micro-blogging site during James Gandolfini's funeral last month. She insisted she didn't tweet, and it all ended with her husband attacking the scribe on his own Twitter feed and ultimately shutting down his account. The fracas was later said to be the result of time-zone confusion.

Mrs. Baldwin won't discuss the issue.

The rest of her summer is focused on planning for her new arrival and completing the nursery. Baldwin still does yoga every day. Since getting married, her better half has also become noticeably more fit. His wife gives him his due. "I can't take credit for everything. He gives me credit. I'm a big influence in his life. Ultimately he's the person at the end of the day who has to decide what to put in his body. We eat together and I eat healthy. I work out so he works out. It helps to have a partner," she says.
