The couple announced they were having a baby last March, five months after the October 2021 shooting incident on the set of “Rust” where Baldwin accidentally shot the cinematographer while rehearsing with prop guns. The actor claimed “he didn’t pull the trigger,” but the Hutchins’ family still filed a lawsuit.

Many people wonder why the Baldwins want so many children, and on his Instagram page, he explained, “This is why. Being a parent is the ultimate journey. The smile, giggles, joy…” His wife also posted: “Our new baby is a very bright spot in our lives. A blessing and a gift during such uncertain times.”

Overpopulation And Climate Change

Fans would know that the actor advocates for the preservation of the planet for the future generation. His passion was ignited after he met indigenous people at the 2015 Paris conference. The actor attended the United Nations to serve as moderator on the “Forest Defenders” panel. Baldwin claimed he finds it quite unsettling that these indigenous people had to face strong opposition from people in power. He also mentioned the brutal killings of activists in Brazil and Peru and the deforestation in Asia and the Amazon.

As an advocate of climate action, it is ironic that the Baldwin family keeps reproducing. There are many claims that prove overpopulation greatly affects the overall state of the earth. Climate change is tightly linked to population growth. “Every additional person increases carbon emissions—the rich far more than the poor—and increases the number of climate change victims—the poor far more than the rich,” states UK-based charity Population Matters.
