“Because as much as I have struggled as a divorced parent – and god knows I’ve had my ups and downs – the only thing that I regret was that I missed so much of my daughter’s childhood because of this contentious situation,” Baldwin admitted, referring to his very public spat with his ex-wife and daughter that resulted in their private phone conversations getting leaked onto the internet. “And that wasn’t at all what I wanted.”

Baldwin, who got engaged to Hilaria, 25 years his junior, after a brief courtship, couldn’t be happier about their child to be.

“I find that now I have another chance. I can honestly tell you I am blown away. When I met my wife, I thought, ‘I have to marry her because I’ll never be this lucky again.’”
