With discovery of the 125 GeV boson h0, the existence of a second doublet is very plausible. We show that the “alignment” phenomenon, that h0 is found to resemble closely the Standard Model Higgs boson, may correspond to Higgs quartic couplings that are in strength. If the exotic bosons of the second doublet possess extra top Yukawa couplings, which are the least constrained by data, such a two-Higgs-doublet model could drive electroweak baryogenesis, as well as further “protect” the apparent alignment. The exotic Higgs bosons can be sub-TeV in mass while remaining well hidden so far, with broad parameter space for search at the Large Hadron Collider.
