Volatile actor Alec Baldwin so wants to be loved but can’t stand the slightest bit of skepticism, often reacting with rage online when a social media user dare question events as advertised.
Especially if the event involves his wife, Hilaria Baldwin — who can forget the tantrum Baldwin threw back in December over a rather spirited debate over whether Hilaria is Spanish.
The latest dustup took place this week when Mrs. Baldwin took to welcome the sixth addition to the family. The newborn baby’s name and gender had not been revealed at the time.
The photo shared by Hilaria Baldwin did not allow for comments, but hubby shared the image on his Instagram account also.
As you might guess, comments were permitted for his post.

A sarcastic social media user responded to note that Hilaria just gave birth 6 months ago to question the origins of the latest child.
A yoga instructor and actress, Hilaria announced the birth of her fifth child, Eduardo Pau Lucas Baldwin, on Instagram on Sept. 8, 2020.
“She gave birth six months ago,” the Instagram user wrote. “If it was a surrogate just say that. If the baby was adopted just say that. If the baby was a product of an affair and you’ve decided to raise it with your wife just say that.”
“If you don’t want to say anything – why don’t you both stop constantly posting and begging for clickbait,” they continued. “Just raise your 100 children in private.”
The remark caught Alec’s attention and, true to form, the angry actor snapped, “[Y]ou should shut the f–k up and mind your own business.”
When a Baldwin fan chimed in to ask why “people are so mean” the actor took the opportunity to slam Americans as a whole. “Basically, they’re not very smart. Americans are people who know less about how to live a peaceful, healthy life than most of the civilized world,” Baldwin wrote, according to Fox News.
On Tuesday, Hilaria posted another photo of the infant, along with the caption: “We are so in love with our daughter, Lucia. Just like your brothers and sisters, you are a dream come true.”

For a family so averse to criticism and eager to tell others to mind their business, they sure like to put their own business out there.
In addition to the six children in the photo above — Hilaria captioned her image with the numeral “7” and a heart emoji — Alec has a 25-year-old daughter, Ireland, with ex-wife and actress Kim Basinger.
(This being the child he called a “rude, thoughtless, little pig” when she was just 11.)
Married in 2012, Alec and Hilaria’s oldest child is 7. But the question remains, where did the latest Baldwin baby come from?
Here’s a sampling of responses to the mystery from Twitter:

Rationally I know Hilaria Baldwin’s new baby was born via surrogate or was adopted, but until that is reported I will continue to be positively REELING wondering how she gave birth to two babies five months apart.

While most of us were ordering sweatpants on Amazon, Hilaria Baldwin was ordering another baby. What a time to be alive.
