Alec Baldwin reportedly living in separate house from wife Hilaria and their five kids due to coronavirus concerns
The couple have taken the precaution to protect themselves and their five young children — Carmen, seven, Rafael, five, Leonardo, four, Romeo, two, and Eduardo, four months.
According to Page Six, the actor is staying at a rental house in Amagansett, New York, just short drive away from his family’s home in the Hamptons. The outlet explains that Alec has been quarantining at the house while he travels to and from New York City to film a project.
As of this week, there have been a total of 1.16 million recorded coronavirus cases in the state of New York, with 39,588 deaths.
Back in December, the 62-year-old himself confirmed he was staying at the property in a video he shared on Instagram.
“I’m here in this guesthouse that’s near our house, that I’m staying in when I’m quarantining,” he confirmed at the time. “I go into New York and work a little bit and come back and have to quarantine here for a few days. It’s not a lot of fun.”
In the clip, the actor said that he feels like a “spirit” who waves at his family from a window every time they drive by to say hello. He can then only see them again after he receives a negative COVID-19 test.
“My wife has the kids come say hi to me a couple of times a day and they’re all in the car,” he revealed. “It’s just weird. I can’t have contact with them until after the quarantine and then I get tested again.”
But Alec is not complaining about leading a life in solitude. Earlier this week, he tweeted that the lockdown has made him realise the fewer people in his life, the better.
“The lockdown has taught me that we need less in our lives,” he tweeted on January 11. “Less clothes, less talk, less food, less media. Above all, less people.”
When asked by a Twitter user to clarify, Alec wrote in a follow-up tweet, “Less people in your life. Quality over quantity. Only let people into your life that genuinely add something.”
Reports of Alec and 37-year-old Hilaria’s living arrangements come in wake of the mother-of-five’s Spanish heritage scandal. The fitness instructor was accused of pretending to be Spanish when she was actually born and raised in Boston, Massachusetts.
“My family is white. Ethnically, I’m a mix of many, many many things,” she explained in an Instagram video. “Culturally, I grew up with two cultures, so it’s really as simple as that.”
