Alec & Hilaria Baldwin Avoid Talking About Coronavirus In Front of Their Kids

Alec Baldwin and his wife, Hilaria, have revealed that they don’t talk about the coronavirus with their children.

During their interview on The Howard Stern Show, the couple opened up about their decision to do so, and how they’re dealing with the health crisis as a family.

“My wife and I, we adjourn to another room,” Alec says, if they do need to talk about the pandemic. “We don’t talk about the nuts and bolts in front of the kids.”

He adds that there’s “no point in contaminating them with fear and so forth. We want them to be kids and enjoy their lives and enjoy their day.”

“But at the same time, kids are smart. They pick up more than you think they are,” Hilaria, shared, before admitting that their kids have been asking about it. “It’s interesting because they’re not stressed about it as long as … we don’t show that we’re stressed out about it.”

Hilaria and Alec did address the conversation they would have if there were a lot of questions: “You say, ‘Yeah, there’s a virus right now and mommy and daddy are doing absolutely everything to make sure that we’re okay, and that’s why we’re living differently. That’s why we’re not having playdates, we’re not going out, we’re not doing this, we’re not doing that. It’s going to be like this for a while, but it’s because we know that we’re going to be okay.’”

However, the children are loving all the family time they are spending together.

“They are loving that, so it’s interesting to try to get into their eyes,” she shared.

Alec and Hilaria have four children together, Carmen, Rafael, Leonardo and Romeo.
