Alec Baldwin has reportedly been quarantining away from his wife Hilaria and family in New York's ritzy the Hamptons neighborhood "for months".

According to editors at Us Weekly, the 62-year-old actor has been renting an abode in Amagansett, New York, which is around a mile away from wife Hilaria and their children Carmen, seven, Rafael, five, Leonardo, four, Romeo, two, and Eduardo, four months, because he has been going "back and forth to the city" for work and wants to minimize coronavirus risks to his loved ones.

Last month, the former 30 Rock star told fans he had been staying in a "guesthouse", but it wasn't clear how long he'd been separated from his family at the time.

He said in an Instagram video: "I go into New York and work a little bit and come back and have to quarantine here for a few days. It's not a lot of fun."

Fortunately, the It's Complicated actor was able to join his wife and their children for Christmas.

It was recently reported Alec had been "100 per cent supporting" Hilaria following claims the 37-year-old yoga instructor had been faking her Spanish background.

The Living Clearly Method writer herself has also addressed the allegations, confirming her real name is Hillary Hayward-Thomas and that she was born in Boston, not in Spain as she'd previously claimed, though she insisted she had divided her time between the US and Europe when she was growing up.

She said: "My parents and sibling live in Spain and I chose to live here, in the USA. We celebrate both cultures in our home.

"Alec and I are raising our children bilingual, just as I was raised. This is very important to me. I understand that my story is a little different, but it is mine, and I'm very proud of it."
