Alec Baldwin Says He And His Wife Don't Discuss Coronavirus With Their Children Because There's Already Enough Fear
According to Alec Baldwin and Hilaria Baldwin, they don't like talking about the coronavirus with their kids because they think there is already enough fear being spread around the country already. The actor claimed they didn't want to "contaminate them with fear," Page Six has learned.
Obviously, Alec and Hilaria are referring to the widespread coverage of the COVID-19 pandemic, which has led several countries in the West to temporarily shut their borders and close non-essential shops and businesses.
Fans of the couple know they have several children, including Romeo Alejandro David, Leonardo Angel Charles, Rafael Thomas, and Carmen Gabriela. Additionally, Mr. Baldwin has another daughter named Ireland Baldwin, 24, whom he shares with his ex, Kim Basinger.
Many of the most popular TV shows, including late-night television series, have temporarily ceased production. For that reason, the conversation between Howard and his guests was done through a video call.
During the new video chat episode of The Howard Stern Show , the pair discussed how they felt about the coronavirus. According to Alec, he and his wife go into another room whenever they want to talk about the coronavirus because they just want their kids to enjoy their lives.
According to Fox News, Hilaria piped up and claimed that despite the fact they never talk about the pandemic in front of their kids, their children are still old enough to know that something big is happening around the world.
Hilaria went on to say that as long as they don't look stressed out about it, their kids are fine. When asked by Howard how they approach the topic, Hilaria claimed she's honest with them. She tells them directly that they have to live differently for now due to the virus.
As it was previously reported, the coronavirus has been sweeping across the globe, causing 21,571 deaths and 480,446 cases across 175 different territories and countries.
Thus far, the United States, for instance, has around 1,046 deaths and 69,197 cases, with the vast majority of them coming from New York. Alec Baldwin and his wife live in New York.
