Alec Baldwin’s Wife Hilaria Recalls He ‘Shushed’ Her While She Was Giving Birth to Their Child

The miracle of birth is often loud, messy, and unexpected. But in actor Alec Baldwin’s world, apparently it should also be quiet.

Alec’s wife Hilaria recently shared a personal anecdote on her Instagram stories detailing a peculiar incident that occurred during the birth of their son Rafael in 2015, Page Six reported. Apparently, the “30 Rock” alum told his wife to keep it down while he was on a phone call.

Hilaria shared the little-known detail in response to a headline that said, “When my husband told me to shush during labor I knew our marriage was over.” The 37-year-old mom of six replied saying, “Alec shushed me while I was in labor with Rafa … He was on the phone ‘Shush! Can you keep it down?’”

But Hilaria also admitted that Alec recognized his mistake pretty quickly.

“He realized he sounded like an ass and he cowered,” she continued. 

The couple shares children Carmen, 8, Leonardo, 5, Rafael, 5, Romeo, 3, Eduardo, 1, and Lucia, 1 together. Hilaria said even after the shocking incident she decided to “keep the marriage.” But Alec never shushed her during labor again, the yoga instructor said.

Hilaria went on to joke that Alec “pays for shushing me in labor by cleaning every bottle in the house,” before saying, “Just kidding… That never happens. Perhaps he can start now.”

This funny story about being in labor isn’t the only time Hilaria shared personal details about the couple’s lives. Recently, she revealed that Alec has suffered from PTSD for a “long time.”

“We oftentimes have people creating news stories about us,” Hilaria said. “My husband is suffering from PTSD right now. It’s not from what just happened recently, but he’s been suffering from this for a very, very, very long time. And these people know this and they want to poke at him and they want to upset him. And then they want to create news about this. So if you create a new story, then the next day there’s going to be tons of paparazzi and there’s going to be more stories that come off of that and there’s more clicks and more shares and money which is ultimately what this is all about.”

She continued, “I’m at a place where I’m tired of not talking and I want to get to a place where I can use my voice to show you that this is not just a famous thing; this is an all-the-time thing.” 

“Everybody has trolls,” Hilaria concluded. “Everybody has people who want to tell you whether you’re good or bad or what you think or what you feel. And you need to reclaim your voice and you’re allowed to speak.”

As for that tragedy, Alec categorically denies that he’s to blame. In an interview with George Stephanopolous, the actor claimed he, “would never point a gun at anyone and pull the trigger at them.”

He also maintained innocence of wrongdoing.

“Someone is responsible for what happened, and I can’t say who that is, but I know it’s not me,” Alec told Stephanopolous. He went on: “I might have killed myself if I thought I was responsible, and I don’t say that lightly.”
