Alec Baldwin was at the heart of the action in New York City earlier this week – only this time it wasn't for one his movies. Indeed, the actor was seen conveying some very real emotion during a highly-charged conversation with his pregnant wife.
The 55-year-old hot-head got the unwanted attention of passers-by on Friday (May 10) while appearing to have a less than private altercation with second spouse Hilaria Thomas on a busy Big Apple street.
Dressed in a black t-shirt and shades, Alec was spotted gesticulating wildly as he leaned in to yoga teacher Hilaria, who stood stoically with her hands behind her back and her face defiantly turned away from her husband.

Also on hand to witness the improvised show were their two dogs, who the couple were apparently walking before things turned ugly.
While the 'argument' took witnesses by surprise, Hilaria has since admitted that it was merely a storm in a teacup.
"My husband wasn't yelling at me, he was telling me how he feels about the Daily News," she tweeted on Sunday (May 12).
That may be so, but it's worth noting that Alec has a rich history when it comes to berating people.
After all, who can forget his admonishment of unfortunate Ireland – his teenage daughter with first wife Kim Basinger – during which he branded her a 'rude, thoughtless pig.'
Sadly for Alec, his diatribe was recorded and eventually released to the media, although he is understood to have since repaired his relationship with his daughter.
The actor was also booted from an American Airlines flight in 2011 after a fracas with a flight attendant – an incident that led to him publicly apologising to fellow passengers for delaying the flight.
Alec married Hilaria in June 2012, a year after they started dating. They announced in February that they are expecting their first child.
