• Alec and Hilaria Baldwin welcomed their newborn six months after the birth of their fifth baby
  • The couple received a lot of hate comments
  • This is not the first time Alec has stepped forward to support his wife

Ever since Alec Baldwin and wife Hilaria Baldwin announced the birth of their sixth baby Monday, their Instagram profiles have been flooded with criticisms. Now, the 62-year-old actor has snapped back at the haters in the comments, telling them to: "Shut the f--- up and mind your own business."

Alec replied to numerous hate comments including the one who accused the couple of "begging for clickbait."

"Who's the mother? She wasn't pregnant. She gave birth six months ago. If it was a surrogate just say that. If the baby was adopted just say that," the user wrote. "If you don't want to say anything — why don't you both stop constantly posting and begging for clickbait. Just raise your 100 children in private."

The actor replied, "Shut the f--- up and mind your own business," and wrote: "I believe that people should simply say congratulations, or just shut the f--- up. That's it," he replied to another user.

The couple welcomed their sixth baby together through surrogacy, People magazine reported.

They had the child just six months after the birth of their fifth baby, Eduardo "Edu" Pao Lucas, in September 2020. Considering the pandemic, Hilaria confirmed in November she is done having children, Page Six reported.

No wonder fans were curious to learn about the sixth baby's story.

This is not the first time Alec has stepped forward to support his wife publicly. Earlier this year, "The Living Clearly Method" author had been involved in the Spanish heritage authenticity controversy and the actor supported his wife, People magazine reported.

In December, she began trending on Twitter after netizens claimed Hilaria had fabricated her roots in Spain. Social media users also accused the podcaster of having a thick Spanish accent despite being born and raised in the U.S.

Hilaria took to Instagram on Dec. 27 and apologized and said "my deep connection to two cultures could have been better explained."

"I've spent the last month listening, reflecting, and asking myself how I can learn and grow. My parents raised my brother and me with two cultures, American and Spanish, and I feel a true sense of belonging to both," she explained.
