Alec Baldwin and his wife Hilaria were seen running errands as they geared up to leave New York City on Friday, the day after a search warrant was issued for his iPhone following the fatal shooting of Halyna Hutchins on the set of Rust.  

The actor, 63, was dressed in a black T-shirt and black pants as he picked up a cup of java at Think Coffee in his neighborhood earlier in the morning, while Hilaria, 37, was later spotted with two of their six children.  

The outline of Baldwin’s cellphone was visible in his pocket as he walked to and from the coffee shop with disheveled hair and without a coat, despite the weather only being in the high-50s.    

Around 8:30 a.m., he was seen loading up an SUV with bags, luggage, and a holiday wreath as her and his family got ready to leave the city ahead of the weekend. They were not traveling light and appeared to be heading out of town for a while. 

Baldwin filled the vehicle with their stuff before slipping into the backseat and leaving with his driver. The couple needed two more SUVs to accommodate their nannies and six children, who each require either a car seat or booster seat, depending on their age.

Earlier in the morning, Baldwin ran to Think Coffee to grab a cup of java on Friday, and the outline of his cellphone was visible in his pocket

Meanwhile, his wife Hilaria, 37, was spotted walking with two of their six children later on in the day 

After her husband left, Hilaria was seen walking with their one-year-old son Eduardo ‘Edu’ Pao Lucas strapped to her chest, with a coffee in one hand and her cellphone in the other. 

The mom, who was wearing a mask for the coffee run, was joined by their seven-year-old daughter Carmen Gabriela. 

Hilaria had on a tie-dye half-zip sweatshirt, faux leather leggings, and a pair of $334 funky black slippers adorned with colorful baubles from Alameda Turquesa as she hit the streets with her kids. 

She later swapped her sweatshirt for a $198 black knit sweater with jungle cats on it by RAILS. She kept on her leggings but traded her slippers for a pair of black padded platform snow boots.

The yoga lover seemed to be sending a message with her $25 gray cap by HATX, which featured the word ‘HATE’ with the ‘E’ crossed out so it said ‘HAT.’ 

Hilaria then drove off in her Range Rover while her children and two nannies left with a driver in another SUV. 

The day before, Hilaria slammed the paparazzi on her Instagram Stories and warned them to ‘stay away’ from her husband. She shared footage of the photographers snapping their pictures, claiming they were purposefully provoking him.  

‘These people are trying to taunt Alec,’ she captioned the clip. ‘This is not good for ptsd. I’m sure that comes as no surprise when you see this. I get you guys want to make money…but this is disgusting. And those of you who pay for these photos — shame.’

In a second post, she demanded that the paparazzi back off while vowing to protect her family.  

‘Stay away from him,’ she insisted. ‘Stop it right now. Have some humanity. Stop thinking about money and attention. Let the investigation do [its] process and it will play out. You don’t need to come and traumatize him more every single step of the way. This is my family and I will protect them until the end.’ 

The family’s departure on Friday came just one day after Baldwin took to Twitter to deny that he had requested a larger Colt gun before Hutchins was fatally shot on the set of Rust. 

He tweeted an article from Newsweek, which claimed that he had requested a bigger gun before the accidental shooting. 

Baldwin ran his fingers through his hair as he took a quick break from loading up the vehicle 

The couple presumably needed at least one more vehicle, possibly two, to accommodate all of their children and nannies before they left town



Baldwin was sporting a bit of facial scruff and disheveled hair while he was out and about on Friday 

Baldwin put on a face mask to pick up his coffee, and he was still wearing it when he left the location with his cup and a paper bag 

‘This, in fact is a lie,’ Baldwin wrote over the article link.  

‘The choices regarding any props by me for the film RUST were made weeks before production began. To suggest that any changes were made “before fatal shooting” is false,’ he added.

His tweet came after Sante Fe sheriffs in New Mexico issued a search warrant for his iPhone in regards to the fatal October 21 shooting. 

The warrant authorizes police to review all text messages and photos on the actor’s cellphone, as well as any stored location data, as part of their investigation. 

Baldwin was seen on his phone making a call shortly after the shooting, and Judge David Segura, a magistrate in Santa Fe, approved the search warrant request on Thursday afternoon. 

Detective Alexandria Hancock — referred to as the ‘affiant’ in the warrant — said that they requested Baldwin hand over his phone, but the actor and his lawyers said that they require a warrant first.

While still holding her coffee and cellphone, Hilaria pulled her face mask down to give her baby a sweet kiss

She also ditched her slippers and put on a pair of black padded platform snow boots 

The yoga lover seemed to be sending a message with her $25 gray cap by HATX, which featured the word ‘HATE’ with the ‘E’ crossed out so it said ‘HAT.’

She topped off the look with gold hoop earrings, gold bangles, and a gray velour scrunchie on her wrist

‘Affiant requested Alec’s phone from him, as well as his attorney, and was instructed to acquire a warrant,’ the warrant request states.   

Hancock, in the request for the warrant, spelled out in detail what she wanted to obtain from Baldwin’s phone — a list that included his contacts, call records, photos, videos, and text messages. 

‘Affiant is requesting a warrant for the seizure and search of Alec Baldwins’ cell phone to search for any evidence relating to the death investigation of Halyna Hutchins,’ the warrant request states. 

‘Affiant believes there may be evidence on the phone, due to individuals using cellular phones during and/or after the commission of crime(s). 

‘Such information, if it exists, may be material and relevant to this investigation. 

‘Affiant was also made aware there were several emails and text messages sent and received regarding the movie production ‘Rust’ in the course of interviews.’

The fatal shooting took place on the set at the Bonanza Creek Ranch outside of Santa Fe (pictured)

Hutchins was shot just moments after the crew entered a church set to rehearse a scene (above)

According to the search warrant, Baldwin told police that he exchanged emails with the film’s armorer, Hannah Gutierrez Reed, regarding what style of gun to use in the film.

They ultimately decided on a Colt .45 pistol.  

Baldwin had been handed the antique pistol for the scene and was told that it was ‘cold’ — not loaded.

He was rehearsing a scene in which he pulls out his gun, and later said in an interview with ABC that he never pulled the trigger, but the gun went off anyway. 

Hutchins, a 42-year-old cinematographer, was shot and killed. The director of the film, Joel Souza, was shot in the shoulder and survived.

It is unclear why it has taken so long for New Mexico police to seize Baldwin’s phone.

The actor has insisted that he has fully cooperated with the investigation. 

During his emotional interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos that aired on December 2, he described in detail for the first time the immediate aftermath of the accident on October 21. 

He was filming a scene inside a church on the set of the movie when the gun was handed to him. 

‘She’s getting me to position the gun — everything is at her direction. I draw the gun, to her marker. I’m not shooting to the camera lens, I’m shooting just off. In her direction. This was a completely incidental shot, that may not have ended up in the film.’

Baldwin said he cocked the gun and was discussing with Hutchins how it looked on camera. 

‘I’m just showing. I go, ‘How ’bout that? Does that work? You see that? Do you see that?’  And then she goes, “Yeah, that’s good.”

An irate Baldwin was caught on video lunging at a New York Post reporter while gripping an umbrella on December 2

The confrontation took place outside Woody Allen’s Upper East Side home, where reporter Jon Levine was waiting for Baldwin to quiz him about the shooting on the set of Rust   

‘I let go of the hammer, bang. The gun goes off. Everyone is horrified. They’re shocked. It’s loud. They don’t have their earplugs in. 

‘No one was — the gun was supposed to be empty. I was told I was handed an empty gun. If they were cosmetic rounds, nothing with a charge at all, a flash round, nothing. 

‘She goes down, I thought to myself, “Did she faint?” The notion that there was a live round in that gun did not dawn on me ’till probably 45 minutes to an hour later.’

He added: ‘Well, she’s laying there and I go, “Did she hit by wadding? Was there a blank?” Sometimes those blank rounds have a wadding inside that packs, it’s like a cloth that packs the gunpowder in. Sometimes wadding comes out, it can hit people, and it could feel like a little bit of a poke. 

‘But no one could understand. Did she have a heart attack? Because remember the idea that someone put a live bullet in the gun was not even in reality.” 

‘I never pulled the trigger. No, no, no. You would never do that.’

Baldwin spoke to George Stephanopoulos about the tragic shooing in an interview that aired on December 2, saying: ‘Someone is responsible for what happened, and I can’t say who it is, but it’s not me’

Dave Halls, the assistant director who was watching, confirmed Baldwin’s account, through his lawyer. 

Baldwin recalled how he stood over her for ‘about 60 seconds’ and was then ushered out. Was she conscious?’ Stephanopoulos asked. ‘My recollection is yes,’ he replied. 

Baldwin’s version of the on-set tragedy 

‘I’m just showing. I go, “How ’bout that? Does that work? You see that? Do you see that?'”

‘And then she goes, “Yeah, that’s good.”

‘I let go of the hammer, bang. The gun goes off. Everyone is horrified. They’re shocked. It’s loud. They don’t have their earplugs in. 

‘No one was — the gun was supposed to be empty. I was told I was handed an empty gun. 

‘If they were cosmetic rounds, nothing with a charge at all, a flash round, nothing. 

‘She goes down, I thought to myself, “Did she faint?”

‘The notion that there was a live round in that gun did not dawn on me ’till probably 45 minutes to an hour later.’

He added: ‘Well, she’s laying there and I go, “Did she hit by wadding? Was there a blank?”

‘I never pulled the trigger. No, no, no. You would never do that. 

‘The gun was supposed to be empty. I was told I was handed an empty gun.  

‘Nobody gave a f*** who you are anymore until this. You see a lot of people with their phones now, in a coffee shop,’ he said, showing them filming him. 

He said ‘no one had any idea’ there was live ammunition used until a police officer showed a photo of the shrapnel removed from Souza’s arm.

Then began ‘the agony, insanity, that someone put a live bullet in the gun,’ he said. ‘She was laying there and she was there for a while I was amazed at how long they didn’t get her in a car or get her out, but they waited until a helicopter came.

‘And by the time the helicopter took off with her, we were literally all glutted to that process outside.

‘When she finally left, I don’t know how long she was there for. She kept saying, she’s stable, just as you disbelieve there was a live round in the gun, you disbelieve its going to be a fatal accident.

‘At the end of my interview with the sheriff’s department, they told me, “We regret to inform you she didn’t make it.” They told me then and there.’ 

He added: ‘That’s when I went outside and called my wife.’  

Baldwin said that he has been told by people ‘in the know’ that it is ‘highly unlikely’ he’ll face criminal charges. 

‘Someone is responsible for what happened, and I can’t say who it is, but it’s not me,’ Baldwin told Stephanopoulos. 

‘Honest to God, if I thought I was responsible I might have killed myself. And I don’t say that lightly.’  

He also took a swipe at former President Donald Trump, his media foe whom he impersonated on Saturday Night Live, for suggesting that he ‘loaded the gun himself.’ 

‘He said that I did it deliberately. Just when you think things can’t get any more surreal, here’s the president of the United States making a comment on this tragic situation.’  

Following the interview, New York Post’s Jon Levine attempted to quiz the actor about the claim.

Baldwin refused to engage, and his wife Hilaria repeatedly asked the journalist to leave and ‘please go away’ while training her cellphone camera on him.

Levine met the couple as they were leaving Woody Allen’s townhouse, on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. 

When Levine would not stop asking questions about the shooting, Baldwin charged at him while grasping his umbrella and yelled that he was not allowed to be on someone’s private property. 

He did not make contact with the reporter, who pointed out to him that the sidewalk was, in fact, public property.    

After the interview aired, Baldwin posted an Instagram photo of himself cradling one of his six young children.

‘No matter what happens to me. No matter what I suffer. If I win or lose, anything. Anything. No one can take away from me the joy and love you have given me, @hilariabaldwin,’ he wrote.

‘These are tough times. The world is choked with fumes of hate. But you have given me a reason to live. Our life with our family is all I care about. Nothing else. I owe that to you.’
