Alec Baldwin promoted his wife Hilaria’s Instagram account and begged his fans to subscribe to his account to celebrate his 39th birthday.
“Hi everyone. Today is January 5th, the day before my wife Hilaria’s birthday tomorrow, January 6th. We don’t attach the same importance to January 6 as other people“Alec said in the video shared to his Instagram on Thursday, referring to the January 6, 2021, attack on the Capitol.”We just say it’s Hilaria’s birthday“.
The 64-year-old actor then asked his fans for a “little favour”.
“My wife is close to a million followers on Instagram“, he said. “And I would like to ask you, as a birthday present, or even just a gesture for my wife, if you would like to follow her on Instagram?“.
Alec expressed how much he loves his wife and how much the extra followers would mean to her on D-Day.
“Of course, I love my wife. Obviously, I’m crazy about my wife. Of course, blah blah blah, all the things we all say about the people we’re in love with“, he clarified. “My wife is the most fabulous person I have ever met in my entire life. That is true. That is true. It’s definitely true.“
The actor went on to beg Instagram users once again to follow the yogi on Instagram.
“I would like as many of you as possible. I’d like a really, really big wave of you to follow my wife on Instagram to say ‘Happy Birthday’“, he insisted, before begging again: “Could you do this for me? Do you want to follow my wife on Instagram? Please ? Thanks.“
While several fans commented on his post, saying they were happy to follow Hilaria, others mocked Alec for making the request.
“What’s wrong with you, I loved you. Now I think you’re losing your mind“, one person commented.
“I would have respected a request for help from a charity association to honor his birthday rather than worrying about the number of insta followers of his wife! Aren’t there more pressing things in the world that you could address?“, wrote a second person.
“This is his gift? No judgment but really?…I agree with the others…why not donations…ridiculous“, agreed another person.
“Why does your wife care that a million strangers love her? You, your family and friends all ‘love’ your wife. Isn’t that what really matters?“, asked a confused fan.
“Is this a joke? I wonder what matters to her, surely she doesn’t care how many followers she has, does she? In the grand scheme of things, in her life as a mom, wife, etc… does it really matter?“, launched another fan of the actor who found himself embroiled in a scandal after his involvement in the fatal shooting of “Rust” in 2021.
The call from the star seems to have worked… Hilaria has reached one million Instagram followers.
The duo, who married in 2012, share seven children: Carmen, 9, Rafael, 7, Leonardo, 6, Romeo, 4, Eduardo, 2, Lucia, 2, and Ilaria, 3 months. .
Alec also shares a 27-year-old daughter, Ireland, with ex-wife Kim Basinger.
