Alec Baldwin on fatherhood!
Alec Baldwin doesn’t quite have the smooth sail in his married and paternal life. Prior to Hilaria, Alec was married to actress Kim Basinger with whom he shared a daughter Ireland. They married in 1993 and welcomed their daughter in 1995 however finalized their divorce in 2002.
The two sadly couldn’t settle their marriage in good terms. The two went onto have problems with each other over their daughter. Alec wrote a book called “A Journey Through Fatherhood and Divorce” in 2008, where he detailed his battle to remain as a father to his daughter after the divorce. Alec wrote that his ex-wife denied all access to his daughter including telephone access.
With the long battle for his daughter, Alec was left to a point where he was filled with resentment and anguish over his situation. He finally broke down and compulsively sent an angry voice message to his daughter calling her “rude, thoughtless little pig”.
Later, the voice tape was sold to TMZ which caused him a lot of mental and public pressure. Alec fought through all his mental turmoil and finally came out with his take on fatherhood with the book.
