Alec Baldwin embraced his role as a family man after prosecutors revealed that he may face charges in the fatal shooting of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins on the set of Rust.
The actor, 64, who just welcomed his seventh child with wife Hilaria Baldwin, carried newborn daughter Ilaria’s car seat during an outing with his spouse in New York on Tuesday.
The busy new father of eight had his hands full – in addition to the car seat, he carried a glossy black backpack and tote bag full of items.

The 30 Rock star kept his gaze down as he emerged from the car, lugging the items about.
He wore a midnight blue polo shirt, gray slacks, and leather footwear.
His wife carried the newest addition to their family, baby daughter Ilaria, as she emerged in a gray sweat suit and bedazzled slippers.
She expertly juggled her tiny infant with a cup of coffee and a cell phone.

The Baldwins announced the arrival of their seventh child on Sunday, revealing Ilaria Catalina Irena was born on September 22, 2022.
‘She’s here! We are so excited to introduce you to our tiny dream come true,’ Hilaria gushed on Instagram, along with details of her baby’s birth. “Both she and I are happy and healthy,” she added.

While it is Alec’s seventh child with Hilaria, he is actually a father of eight – he shares 26-year-old daughter Ireland Baldwin with his ex-wife Kim Basinger.
The happy news came just days before New Mexico prosecutors indicated that they may charge Alec over the fatal shooting of Hutchins on the set of his film Rust last year, after he handed over his cellphone to be considered as evidence.
In a letter to the state’s financial board, asking for funding to prosecute the high profile case, Santa Fe District Attorney Mary Carmack-Altwies said she was ‘ready’ to file charges against four people.

She stopped short of confirming the charges she planned to bring, but said she was ‘certainly looking at all the homicide statutes and any gun statutes under the New Mexico criminal code’.
‘One of the possible defendants is well-known movie actor Alec Baldwin,’ she wrote.
Carmack-Altwies asked for $635,000 to prosecute the case, saying she needed the money to go up against well-paid attorneys.
The state agreed to award her office $317,000 to appoint a special prosecutor to take the case forward.
The request was quietly submitted on August 30 and was recently approved. After it was filed, Baldwin listed his Hamptons home for sale.
He has always maintained that he did not pull the trigger, and that the blame lies with the stunt handlers and prop managers who should have ensured the gun was ‘cold’ – empty of live bullets.
“I would never point a gun at anyone and pull a trigger, no,” he said in an interview about the shooting.
He lays the blame with the armorer, Hannah Gutierrez-Reed, who he says was in charge of ensuring the safety of the props.

The gun should only contain blank rounds.
Gutierrez-Reed has always denied culpability, despite also being blamed by Hutchins’ family for the tragedy.
She was named as a defendant in a wrongful death lawsuit launched by Hutchins’ widower.
ABC News on Monday said that one of the final pieces of evidence that prosecutors had been waiting for was Baldwin’s cellphone.
The DA wrote that one of the ‘final pieces of evidence’ her office had been waiting for was Baldwin’s cellphone.
The actor has not commented on the DA’s recent remarks.
His attorney did not immediately respond to DailyMail.com’s inquiries on Monday.
In addition to listing their Hamptons home, Baldwin and his wife sold a property in upstate New York earlier this year for $530,000.
They still own their $16 million Manhattan penthouse and $1.75 million farm in Vermont.
