Alec Baldwin may be a brand new papa but he still has the same old ire and rage problems, especially when it comes to the paparazzi. And this one is literally history repeating itself.
The 30 Rock actor got into it with paparazzi Tuesday outside his Manhattan apartment. Apparently one of the photographers got a little too close for Alec’s comfort as he and wife Hilaria were walking outside their place. The police were called but no arrests were made although Baldwin did detain the paparazzo in question by pinning him against a car.
Hilaria just gave birth to the couple’s first child, daughter Carmen on Friday evening. The family just came home from the hospital two days ago.
Seventeen years ago when Baldwin became a first-time father with then-wife Kim Basinger, he attacked a paparazzo that was camped out in a van across from the couple’s San Fernando Valley home when they brought home daughter Ireland.
The 55-year-old has got into plenty of scuffles with the nonstop scrum of paparazzi over the years that literally follows him around daily as he jogs, walks his dogs, goes to lunch and other mundane activities. But Tuesday he was probably just being protective of his wife and new mother as apparently the photographer in question was harassing Hilaria and even tried to follow her into a shop.
