Alec Baldwin would like to make a reality series to spend more time with his family. The actor and father of seven children notices that his career, which requires him to travel a lot, is difficult to combine with caring for his children.
“I used to be able to just jump on a plane to Los Angeles,” says 65-year-old Baldwin in conversation with the Let’s Talk Off Camera podcast. “But now I need eleven tickets. For myself, my wife, my children, the nannies. There are not even eleven places in business class.”
Baldwin says he previously took his family to Los Angeles so he could work there and have his family around him. “But because of all the extra costs that the temporary move entailed, I would not earn anything from my acting job.”
“Everything I do, I think about how it will affect my family,” the actor continues. “Like jobs that I may or may not accept.”
Baldwin therefore decided to take matters into his own hands: he came up with the idea for a reality series. “So we can stay home in New York and work there.” The actor does not say whether interest has been expressed in the project.
Baldwin may have to go to trial
The actor and his wife Hilaria had their seventh child, daughter Ilaria, last September. Together they also have daughters Lucía and Carmen Gabriela and sons Rafael Thomas, Leonardo Ángel Charles, Romeo Alejandro David, and Eduardo ‘Edu’ Pao Lucas. Alec has a daughter from a previous marriage, named Ireland.
Baldwin has been in the news since 2021 due to a fatal shooting incident on the set of the film Rust, which he produces and in which he plays the leading role. During the shooting, the actor practiced with a revolver, which turned out to be loaded. A camerawoman died as a result. Baldwin may still be prosecuted.
