Fans call out father-of-eight Alec Baldwin for 'forgetting' about eldest daughter Ireland

Fans call out father-of-eight Alec Baldwin for 'forgetting' about eldest daughter Ireland

He shares seven kids with wife Hilaria, but also has an eldest daughter from a previous marriage

Fans have called out father-of-eight Alec Baldwin for ‘forgetting’ about his eldest daughter Ireland – by his own admission.

Baldwin, 65, shares seven children with wife Hilaria, 39 – the youngest of whom, Ilaria Catalina Irena, was born last September.

The actor is also dad to Ireland, 27, his daughter from his previous marriage to Kim Basinger.

The proud father, who recently had all criminal charges he faced over the on-set death of Halyna Hutchins dropped, decided to pay tribute to his brood on Instagram, saying he would be nowhere without his family.

He posted a carousel with photos of each of youngest children - Carmen Gabriela, Rafael Thomas, Leonardo Angel Charles, Romeo Alejandro David, Eduardo Pao Lucas, Maria Lucia Victoria and Ilaria Catalina Irena - describing them as ‘seven reasons’ to power on during difficult times.

Baldwin shares seven kids with wife Hilaria.

Baldwin wrote in the caption: “Seven reasons to carry on during some tough times. I'm not gonna lie, without my family, I don't know what my life would be."

Of course, many people realised the star had an eighth reason not featured in the post – firstborn daughter Ireland, 27.

“Don't you have 8 children?" one person wrote.

Someone else said: “I'm sure your oldest is happy you left her out.”

A third added: “Guess Ireland doesn’t count??”

Baldwin later rectified his mistake, admitting he had forgotten Ireland – referring to her as musician ‘Billy Preston’, who is often known as the ‘Fifth Beatle’.

Posting a photo of his eldest child, he wrote: “We forgot Billy Preston! This one, the first one, is about to make me a grandfather. Oy.”

Ireland is currently pregnant.

Cinematographer Hutchins was fatally shot in October 2021 when a gun Baldwin had been holding on the set of the film Rust was fired.

Baldwin and the producers of Rust are still facing at least five ongoing civil cases, while prosecutors in Santa Fe are pressing forward with involuntary manslaughter charges against Hannah Gutierrez-Reed, who was the weapons supervisor hired to work on the film.

After all criminal charges were dropped last month, Baldwin's lawyers, Luke Nikas and Alex Spiro, praised the decision.

They said in a statement: "We are pleased with the decision to dismiss the case against Alec Baldwin and we encourage a proper investigation into the facts and circumstances of this tragic accident."

Nikas had previously said he disagreed with the involuntary manslaughter charges, saying: “This decision distorts Halyna Hutchins’ tragic death and represents a terrible miscarriage of justice. Mr. Baldwin had no reason to believe there was a live bullet in the gun – or anywhere on the movie set.

"He relied on the professionals with whom he worked, who assured him the gun did not have live rounds. We will fight these charges, and we will win.”
