Alec Baldwin defends and explains why he and Hilaria have 8 children after receiving backlash online

Alec Baldwin is setting the record straight by explaining “why” he and his pregnant wife Hilaria Baldwin have such a huge family.  “People comment about how many children we have and ask why,” the actor, 64, captioned an Instagram video Sunday.

“This is why,” he continued. “The thing in this life that matters most to me are these people.”

Baldwin, a soon-to-be dad of eight children, is in good company.

The actor and his wife Hilaria presently have six kids together: Eduardo and Lucia, 1, Carmen, 8, Rafael, 7, Leonardo, 5, and Romeo, 4. Later this year, they will welcome a second girl into the world.

Ireland, a daughter born in Baldwin’s first marriage to model Kim Basinger, is 26 years old.

However, the Saturday Night Live comedian has taken some heat for having such a large family.

One critic tweeted: “It’s not always the middle class or poor….. Alec Baldwin (actor) is preparing to have his SEVENTH child!!! And Elon Musk has SIX. WTF is going on here?”

Another wrote: “Do these people not consider the environmental issues of having such large families?”

A third described the actor’s large family as “completely irresponsible”.

Baldwin has now clarified his motivation for wanting to welcome more children into the world.

This Thursday, the 64-year-old actor posted a video of his two youngest kids, Eduardo and Mara Luca, who are both one-year-olds, on Instagram.

The kids, who are wearing pajamas, can be seen interacting with their mother, Hilaria while drinking milk in the video.

Baldwin captioned the sweet post: “People comment about how many children we have and ask why. This is why. The thing in this life that matters most to me are these people.”

CO Tech Worker Fired After Posting TikToks Explaining How She Got A New Job That Raised Salary $20k

A Denver IT employee who explained on Tiktoks how she received a $20,000 raise at her new job, moving from $70,000 to $90,000, was fired.

The employer where Lexi Larson started their new work last month dismissed her two weeks later due to “security concerns” after learning about her salary transparency TikToks.

Lexi Larson was 'fired out of nowhere' 2 weeks into her new job after her boss found her TikToks account, where she posts salary transparency videos

On her TikTok account last month, Lexi Larson spoke about how she changed jobs and increased her salary from $70,000 to $90,000. There were 168,000 views of the video. She continued to make videos on how she obtained the job for the following two weeks.

Larson claimed that shortly after her employer found out about her TikTok account, she erased certain videos out of concern for their wrath.

Larson claimed in a later video that her posts led to her termination.

“So, TikTok got me fired,” said Larson, who goes into detail about knowing that talking about her salary is federally protected by law under the National Labor Relations Act and why she took down some videos.

“…They ended up firing me because they said me having this account was a safety concern because I could post something private,” Larson said.

Larson opted not to file a lawsuit and omitted to mention her old workplace. But her dismissal raises issues regarding what you can and cannot post on social media about your profession.

When using electronic communications, such as social media, bear in mind that your company may have prohibitions prohibiting using their equipment, according to the National Labor Relations Board.

If Larson decides to file a lawsuit, she might have a strong case, according to Bennitta Joseph, a partner at the New York law firm Joseph & Norinsberg LLC.

“She should think about contacting a lawyer if she can show she was terminated for discussing her wages.” said Joseph, who noted that most employees are usually fired for disciplinary or performance reasons.

Employers will probably keep an eye on their employees’ social media accounts to make sure they aren’t engaging in any unlawful behavior, according to Bergman and Joseph.

“A company has a huge interest to make sure you are not engaging in discriminatory statements, disclosing trade secrets, threats of violence, and unlawful conduct,” Joseph said. “If they do find out that you are doing any of these, it could be grounds for termination.”

“The higher up you are, the more careful you have to be about what you post,” Joseph adds.

“I think it’s important to take a step back and be cautious when revealing personal information on social media,” Bergman said.

“Whether it’s an employer looking into your activities, or a potential swindler looking to take you of your money, I think it’s a dangerous road,” Bergman added.

He has another piece of advice.

“It’s probably better to keep your money matters offline,” Bergman concluded.

Victoria Beckham’s daughter called her Spice Girls fashion ‘unacceptable’

Harper Beckham won’t be sporting her mother’s previous Spice Girls attire any time soon. Victoria Beckham admitted her only child isn’t a fan of the provocative looks she donned while playing with the legendary girl group in the 1990s in a recent interview with Vogue Australia.

“She actually said to me recently, ‘Mummy, I’ve seen some pictures of you when you were in the Spice Girls and your skirts were just unacceptable. They were just too short,’” the 48-year-old fashion designer recalled.

“Then David piped up and said, ‘Absolutely, Harper! They really, really were.’ And she was actually quite disgusted at how short my skirts were.”

While Beckham gained notoriety for her love of small bra tops and tube dresses by Tom Ford for Gucci — “The other Spice Girls weren’t really into fashion, so I was fortunate to be able to take up most of the budget,” she quipped — Harper’s personal style is shaping up to be far less skimpy.

“I said, ‘Are you never going to wear skirts like that?’ She said, ‘Absolutely not.’ We’ll see,” the British beauty said. “She’s not one of these kids who are going out with a full face of make-up and a crop top.”

Beckham shared a similar sentiment in a 2018 interview on the Barneys Podcast, saying, “I was amazed by how naked the costumes were … I used to go out with not a lot of clothing on.”

Asked whether she planned on passing down anything from her Spice Girls days to her daughter, she replied, “Absolutely not.”

In addition to steering her away from overly sexy styles, Beckham also told Vogue Australia she hopes Harper doesn’t spend too much time on Instagram, which she finds “quite terrifying.”

“Harper isn’t on social media, so we don’t have to worry about [body-shaming] just yet,” she said. “But seeing how cruel people can be, yes, it really does [concern me].”

Beckham added, “She’s at that age where her body is going to start changing, but it’s about making sure that we communicate a lot as a family and she surrounds herself with nice friends.”

The fashion icon is parents to Harper, Brooklyn, 23, Romeo, 19, and Cruz, 17, along with former pro footballer David Beckham.

She said that along with making her seem “boring,” these stories’ headlines make her worried for the criticism Harper will face online and in the media when she’s older.

“Harper isn’t on social media, so we don’t have to worry about that just yet. But seeing how cruel people can be, yes it really does [concern me],” Beckham said. “She’s at that age where her body is going to start changing, but it’s about making sure that we communicate a lot as a family and she surrounds herself with nice friends. But it is quite terrifying, I can’t lie.”

Quran has posted pictures of the couple’s bond on social media in an effort to counter the animosity they occasionally encounter.

Quran and Cheryl recently provided an update on their journey, saying they’re willing to spend £120,000 ($144,453) on a surrogate in order to have a child by 2023.

Last month, the couple made the decision to start a family together. They are ready to pay whatever price is necessary.

“The baby will arrive late spring 2023.”

The child will be Cheryl’s seventh, while it will be Quran’s first. Cheryl also has 17 grandchildren.

“This is not Cheryl’s first rodeo,” Quran noted.

Quran said: “I am extremely excited, this is something I always wanted, to have a family with the love of my life.”

Cheryl added: “Another baby would be amazing for me and my family on this new journey. I have already planned on shopping for the baby and I’m hoping that we can throw a baby shower.”

The pair have been quite open on their TikTok channel about their desire to start a family together.

Replying to one user, they said: “We are more than ready to have this baby.”

They’ve also posted a video of Quran rubbing Cheryl’s stomach.

“Them flashbacks hit different,” the caption reads.

Despite the criticism they have received for their significant age difference, the duo has continued in using OnlyFans and TikTok to dispel numerous “misconception[s]”.

Quran has argued: “Even though it is an age gap we never think of it because Cheryl has a very young spirit, soul and heart.”

In a recent post, he stated he will ‘always love’ Cheryl ‘unconditionally’.

He concluded: “We get a mixture of positive and negative feedback. The worst is that I’m using her for money. Hate all you want, we still are going to live a normal life.
