Alec Baldwin has been attempting to ‘cheer up’ his wife Hilaria amid her Spanish heritage scandal
His wife, Hilaria Baldwin, has faced backlash over her alleged Spanish heritage.
But Alec Baldwin has been doing his best to keep her spirits lifted throughout the scandal.
‘They celebrated New Year’s in the Hamptons. While Hilaria has seemed a bit upset, Alec has been around to comfort her,’ a source told People.

‘He has been supportive and has tried to cheer her up.’
Since Hilaria’s Spanish heritage came under scrutiny last month, the couple have been ‘very upset’ over the backlash.
The Boston-born yoga teacher, who had long played up her purported links to Spain, has been ‘deeply affected’ that heritage is now ‘being questioned,’ a source told Entertainment Tonight.
However her Saturday Night Live star husband ‘unconditionally supports and loves Hilaria in whatever she does,’ the source claimed.

Controversy: Hilaria has been accused of faking her Spanish heritage
Hilaria has since clarified she was born and raised in Boston’s posh Beacon Hill district to parents (who moved to Spain in 2011) with deep roots in the United States.
Baldwin even went as far as to blame her agency CAA and ¡Hola! magazine for mistakenly referring to her as Spanish in an interview with the New York Times last Wednesday.
‘Home is where my parents are going to be,’ the Mom Brain podcaster bizarrely explained. ‘If my parents move to China, I am going to go to China and say, “I’m going home.”‘

But as far back as 2011, Hillary perpetuated her fictional heritage by tweeting that she was a ‘Spanish yoga teacher.’
