After seeing their mutual love for children and having a large family, you would wonder if Alec and Hilaria still want more kids. But, having five small children, Hilaria has confessed that she may be ready to call the family complete.
She shared about her (joyful) fatigue with having a big brood and that both she and Alec have no plans to expand their family further.
Hitting It Off With Hilaria
After Basinger filed for divorce in 2001, her own father claimed that Alec’s temper is what led his daughter to end the marriage. After years of tabloid gossip, messy legal struggles, and intense personal battles, Alec picked up the pieces and found a new love in his life.
Alec began dating Hilaria Thomas, a yoga instructor from Manhattan, in 2011. According to Hilaria, Alec saw her at a restaurant and kept looking over at her the whole time. Then, as he was about to leave the restaurant, he approached her, took her hand in his, and asked her who she was. And that was all it took to hook Hilaria.
Alec wanted to have more children and was very open and direct with Hilaria about it. He had asked her if she wanted to have kids early in their relationship, and Hilaria, who’s about 26 years younger than Alec, appreciated his frankness.
Though the relationship started out slowly in some ways, the two married just one year later and immediately started adding more Baldwins to the bunch.The two have five children together: daughter Carmen, and sons Rafael, Leonardo Angel Charles, Romeo Alejandro David and Eduardo Pau Lucas. With such a focus on family, it seems that Hilaria and Alec are a great match!
Leave The Bad In The Past
Some films are so awful that they leave a lasting impression. Unfortunately, Stephen was in a less-than-stellar film. In 1996, he starred in the comedy “Bio-Dome,” which was directed by Jason Bloom, and co-starred Pauly Shore. The film was a sort of unusual buddy flick and, though the film received an unsettling 4% on Rotten Tomatoes, there was actually a sequel in discussion.
It may interest you to know that, in 1996, both the film and Shore won a Razzie Award. In 2013, Stephen shared on Mancow Muller’s radio show that he was speaking with Shore about making a sequel. But the project never gained momentum and was never picked up. Some projects are better left in the past.
His Greatest Role?
If Bio-Dome was Stephen’s flop, then The Usual Suspects may be his best film. The film premiered in 1995, with Stephen playing the role of Michael McManus. Baldwin had grown tired of doing independent films due to unmet expectations and was ready for a change.
When he met director Bryan Singer, Stephen had a 15-minute monologue about what it would be like for Singer to work with him. But Singer wasn’t put off by Stephen’s speech and told him exactly what he expected from his role in the film and what he wanted as a director. Stephen appreciated his directness and clarity and the two went forward to create a successful film, especially in the eyes of the audience
