Alec is first on the list because he is both the oldest brother and the most well-known worldwide. And though he is the firstborn brother, he is not the firstborn of the Baldwin siblings. Sister Elizabeth is actually the firstborn and is three years older than Alec. Alec was born on April 3, 1958, (birth name, Alexander Rae Baldwin III) in Amityville, New York.
The now-62-year-old is a writer, producer, game show host, and comedian. Not only is he the most popular of the bunch, but he’s also worth the most – with a net worth of $65 million. You’ve seen him on “30 Rock,” “The Cooler,” “Saturday Night Live,” and in “The Departed,” but he was also a game show host on Match Game. Alec was married to actress Kim Basinger before his current wife Hilaria Thomas (we’ll get to them soon).
A Four Pack
There have been a handful of acting dynasties that have captured the lasting attention of Hollywood and the Baldwins have been one of the most prominent. The four: Alec, Stephen, Billy, and Daniel have each forged their own paths within the same field and now, since they have kids, their dynasty has expanded. From the next generation of Baldwins, Ireland (Alec’s daughter) and Hailey (Stephen’s daughter) are the most recognized and the most active on social media.
While the next generation of Baldwins may draw a lot of the public’s attention, the four brothers haven’t disappeared from the public view either, though they may have wanted to at times. There are definitely a handful of past scandals that the Baldwins would like to sweep under the rug. But, it’s common knowledge the price of fame includes little to no privacy. Before we turn the rug over, let’s get to know each Baldwin a little bit better.
Number Two - Daniel Baldwin
Daniel Baldwin (born Daniel Leroy Baldwin) entered the world on October 5th, 1960 in Massapequa, New York. Daniel has worked in the entertainment industry as an actor, director, and producer. You may have seen Daniel in "Cold Case, Homicide: Life on the Street," "The Wisdom to Know the Difference," and Grey Gardens." His estimated net worth is $400,000. Daniel has not had the most serene private life and has been married three times.
He has five kids from his marriages and took a break from acting to seek professional help for his battle with substance abuse. Thankfully, he has turned a personal challenge into a positive change. Since 2016, Daniel has been working closely with families from Central New York who are also battling similar situations. He also supports young people who are in need of rehabilitation or treatment for their addictions.
Number Three - William “Billy” Baldwin
William Joseph “Billy” Baldwin was born in Massapequa, New York on February 21'st, in 1963. Billy also holds the titles of producer, writer, and actor and is the second youngest of the four brothers. You may have seen him in movies like "Sliver," "Flatliners," "The Squid, and the Whale", and the show "Gossip Girl." His net worth is around $6 million.
Billy has three kids with wife and singer Chynna Phillips (of the music group Wilson Phillips). The two have been married since 1995. The 57-year-old has slipped out of the U.S. spotlight, but he is currently starring in and producing a Canadian drama series (which you can find on Netflix) called "Northern Rescue."
Number Four - Stephen Baldwin
The youngest of the brothers, Stephen, was born on May 12th, 1966, as Stephen Andrew Baldwin. Stephen is probably best known for the film "The Usual Suspects", "The Young Riders" and "The Flintstones In Viva Rock Vegas." He has an estimated net worth of $500,000. Stephen got his start in TV (starring in shows like The Young Riders) and made his film debut in "The Beast," but his breakout role is considered to be his performance in "The Usual Suspects."
He shares daughters Alaia and Hailey with Brazilian graphic designer Kennya Deodato, whom he has been married to since 1990. Hailey is a successful model and has been married to Justin Beiber since 2018. Today, Stephen has taken a step back from acting, is a born-again Christian and goes to Hillsong Church, which Bieber also attends.
