Alec Baldwin knows what it takes to make a marriage work — after all, he has headed down the aisle twice now — so he is sharing some matrimonial wisdom with niece Hailey Baldwin.
The actor has stayed relatively quiet about his niece’s engagement to Justin Bieber until Sunday when he spoke to etalk at The Public premiere during the Toronto International Film Festival.
“People who get married young — and they are very young — I want them to just spend time with each other,” Baldwin, 60, said. “Obviously, him, in particular, has this crazy superstar career.”
He added: “I’m quite a bit older than both of them, but I got married recently, a few years ago. And my wife [Hilaria Baldwin] and I had four kids in four-and-a-half years. We have a lot of little kids.”
Baldwin has been married to Hilaria, 34, since 2012. The couple share daughter Carmen Gabriela, 5, son Rafael Thomas, 3, son Leonardo Ángel Charles, 1, and son Romeo Alejandro David, 4 months. Baldwin is also the father to Ireland Baldwin, 22, with whom he shares with first wife Kim Basinger.
