Alec Baldwin and wife Hilaria Baldwin have their sights set on a new career venture.
“Alec and Hilaria may be pitching reality show ideas soon,” a source exclusively tells Us Weekly of the couple, who tied the knot in 2012.
The insider adds that Alec, 65, and Hilaria, 39, would only move forward with a series if it’s “the right fit that would authentically show who they are as a family.” The twosome share seven children: daughters Carmen, 10, Lucia, 2, and Ilaria, 13 months, and sons Rafael, 8, Leonardo, 7, Romeo, 5, and Eduardo, 3. (Alec also shares daughter Ireland Baldwin, 28, with ex-wife Kim Basinger.)
Alec — whose decades-long career in show business has earned him three Emmy awards and three Golden Globes — recently opened up about how his big brood has changed his priorities.
“With me, everything’s about my family,” he said during a Wednesday, November 1, appearance on Kelly Ripa’s “Let’s Talk Off Camera” podcast. “Once we had five and then six and then seven kids, I can’t go anywhere for any length of time.”

The actor added that traveling for work has become difficult because he needs “12 plane tickets” to accommodate his large clan. “Nannies, kids, my wife, I need, like, 11 [tickets],” he said. “They don’t even have 11 seats in the business class section of the plane.”
Alec recalled traveling to California for work a few years ago and realizing he was “not going to make a dime” due to renting out four hotel suites for his family. “I’m desperate to work from home,” he said, noting that he and Hilaria have “thought a lot” about doing a reality TV show.
As for what fans could expect from the Baldwin clan’s reality show, the source tells Us it would have to be authentic to the family.
“They genuinely love spending time together so it would have to be something that shows their personalities, everyday laughter and adventures. It would have to be something very real and show how they spend their time together,” the insider says. “Alec’s favorite thing is spending time with Hilaria and their kids, and anyone who’s around them knows they just love being together. They love the idea of a show where they can show people who they are and what matters most to them.”
