Hilaria Baldwin Takes a Walk With Her Youngest Child Following Dropping of Charges Against Alec Baldwin in Halyna Hutchins’ Death
Hilaria Baldwin, wife of Alec Baldwin, was recently spotted walking with her youngest child, Ilaria Catalina Irena, in New York. The sighting comes a day after charges against Alec were dropped in connection to the death of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins on the set of Rust. Hilaria was dressed casually in a gray plaid shirt, olive green tank top, and jeans, with her hair loose and windblown. She pushed her child in a stroller while wearing slippers on her feet and carrying her phone in one hand.
After the charges against Alec were dropped, he took to Instagram to thank his wife Hilaria for her support, while Hilaria posted a strange photo of herself curled up on his lap. Meanwhile, filming resumed for the movie in Montana, after production stopped abruptly when Alec accidentally fired a live round from a prop gun, killing Hutchins.
A statement from lawyers Luke Nikas and Alex Spiro read, “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.” Baldwin was charged with involuntary manslaughter in January after the death of Hutchins and the injury of Rust director Joel Souza, who was struck by the same bullet that passed through Hutchins.

Despite the FBI’s report that concluded Alec did pull the trigger of the gun that killed Hutchins, the case against him has been diminishing, with a weapons charge already dismissed and the first special prosecutor resigning. The new evidence showed that the firearm used by Baldwin had been modified, and prosecutors could no longer prove that it required a trigger pull to fire.
However, the Santa Fe police are still investigating the incident, and Baldwin’s co-defendant and Rust armorer, Hannah Gutierrez-Reed, still faces charges against her. Baldwin was accused of showing a “reckless” disregard for safety in Hutchins’ death, but he has maintained that he was told the gun was safe and that he never pulled the trigger.
The production company has agreed to pay a $100,000 fine following a safety review that revealed ignored complaints and misfires before Hutchins’ death. Baldwin’s case may be dropped by prosecutors, but the investigation is still ongoing, and Gutierrez-Reed still faces charges.
