Alec and Hilaria Baldwin celebrate eighth anniversary

Actor Alec Baldwin and wife Hilaria celebrated their eighth wedding anniversary on July 1. The happy couple honoured the occasion with some sweet Instagram posts.

Baldwin shared two images of himself and his wife making their way down the aisle on their wedding day. “Eight years ago today. Luckiest day of my life,” he captioned one of the images.

Being the funny-man that he is, he captioned the second photo: “I knew my marriage was solid because Steve Higgins was there to bless it”, as he can be seen shaking his fellow comedian’s hand in the image.

His wife kept her tributes more simple, posting a picture from their wedding day captioned “Happy 8 years”. Hilaria also posted some candid images of the pair on the beach, wearing their protective masks. “8 years later,” she said.

Their anniversary comes soon after their announcement in April that they are expecting their fifth child together.

“Sound up … I’ll let the baby do the talking because I don’t have the words to express how this sound makes us feel,” she captioned a video of her showing off her belly, as the baby’s heartbeat played in the background.

“Just got the great news that all is well and all is healthy with this little munchkin. I wanted to share this with you🤍 Here we go again 💫,” she added.

The new baby will join several siblings, Carmen Gabriela (6), Romeo Alejandro David (almost 2), Leonardo Ángel Charles (3), and Rafeal Thomas (4). Alec also has a 24-year-old daughter, Ireland, with his previous wife Kim Basinger.

Alec and Hilaria met in 2011.  Baldwin once said: “I wandered into Pure Food and Wine on Irving Place, on an unseasonably warm February evening. My friend, @bocartist and I sat down and as I turned to my left I saw a woman who would change my life. Entirely.”

Hilaria, speaking to the New York Times, said that Baldwin had a great opening line. “I was standing near the door with my friends when he walked up and took my hand and said, ‘I must know you’,” she recalled. “You must know me?’,” she replied, after which “he gave me his card,” she said.

Thereafter, they had what Baldwin has called, “a whirlwind romance”.

They tied the knot on June 29, 2012, at the Basilica of St. Patrick’s Old Cathedral in New York City.
