The couple are understood to be in Long Island enclave the Hamptons, where they own a home, after Baldwin, 63, gave a sit-down interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos regarding the death of colleague Halyna Hutchins.
The cinematographer was fatally wounded after a gun containing live rounds was fired on the California set of his now scrapped western, Rust.

On Friday Hilaria was seen riding horses and going shopping in the Hamptons, just one day after her husband denied firing the gun that killed a cinematographer in his first sit-down interview since the fatal shooting.
The couple have been seen in the upscale Long Island community – where the two own a home – several times since he has come under fire for shooting Hutchins on the set of his western film at the end of October.
They have previously been pictured enjoying some time at a park in the Hamptons, where they would kick around a soccer ball with their six children, and enjoy a picnic.

In the interview, which aired Thursday night but was pre-recorded, Alec said that he was devastated by the shooting, and frequently broke down in tears.
But he insisted he bore no responsibility for Hutchins’s death, because he did not bring live ammunition on to set, and so he did not feel any guilt.
He also maintained that he did not pull the trigger on the handgun and that it just ‘went off’ while in his hands on the set of the movie in New Mexico on October 21.

‘I let go of the hammer, bang. The gun goes off. Everyone is horrified. They’re shocked. It’s loud,’ he said.
He also revealed that in the moments after the shooting, he did not realize Hutchins had been hit, saying he originally thought she had fainted or had a heart attack, and it did not occur to him until around 45 minutes later that it could have been live ammunition put in the antique prop gun for their Western film, Rust.
‘They kept saying, she’s stable – just as you disbelieve there was a live round in the gun, you disbelieve it’s going to be a fatal accident,’ Baldwin told Stephanopoulos.
Devastated: He said that after the Santa Fe County Sheriff’s Office told him Hutchins didn’t survive, he went outside and called Hilaria
‘At the end of my interview with the sheriff’s department, they told me ‘we regret to inform you she didn’t make it,’ they told me then and there.’
He added: ‘That’s when I went outside and called my wife.’
