Alec Baldwin lavished sweet words on his wife Hilaria Baldwin as she celebrated her 37th birthday today.
Hilary, who shares five children with the actor, has been embroiled in controversy after being accused of fabricating her Spanish heritage and confirming her real name is Hillary.
However, Alec was on-hand to make his wife feel special on her big day and shared a heartfelt message which read: ‘Happy birthday to the love of my life. To the only person in the world who brings me joy and peace every day.
‘The person who is my home. My everything.’
Alongside the post, Alec shared a photo of him and Hilaria posing with their five children; Carmen, seven, Rafael, five, Leonardo, four, Romeo, two, and three-month-old Eduardo.
Alec, 62, has been by Hilaria’s side since the scandal unfolded last month.
The yoga instructor posted an Instagram video addressing rumours she lied about being born in Spain.
Hilaria confirmed she was born in Boston and spent time with her family in Spain.
‘I was born in Boston and grew up spending time with my family between Massachusetts and Spain. My parents and siblings live in Spain and I chose to live here, in the USA,’ Hilaria told her followers.
‘We celebrate both cultures in our home — Alec and I are raising our children bilingual, just as I was raised. This is very important to me. I understand that my story is a little different, but it is mine, and I’m very proud of it.’
She later stated that she was a ‘white girl’, adding: ‘Let’s be very clear that Europe has a lot of white people in there and my family is white. Ethnically, I am a mix of many, many, many things. Culturally, I grew up with two cultures so it’s really as simple as that.’
Alec jumped to his wife’s defence and said: ‘We live in a world now where we’re hidden behind the anonymity of social media.
‘People feel that they can say anything. They can say anything. They probably would like to do anything if they weren’t at risk of getting caught and going to prison.’
The Beetlejuice actor said: ‘Because they can’t do that, because that involves real commitment to do something, to express those feelings, they say things, no profile picture very often, sometimes yes, no identifying features there, hidden behind the anonymity of social media, they want to just shoot it all over you and spray it all over you, their venom and their hate.’
