Though Baldwin is not a terribly rare surname, the four Baldwin brothers share no known relation to fellow-actor, Adam Baldwin.
Though he has appeared in popular films like “The Patriot” and “Serenity,” Adam Baldwin has not had the same success as the other Baldwins and, of course, does not share any resemblance to the four!
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.
They Came From A Middle-Class Family
The way in which the Baldwin brothers dominated the Hollywood scene, you may think that they came from an acting dynasty like the Barrymores or the Houstons, but this was not the case. Their father (Alexander) was a teacher and a football coach in Massapequa, New York while their mother (Carol) was a housewife when they were growing up.
What has helped the Baldwin boys stand out, other than the fact that they come in a group of four, are their good looks and charisma. When asked about where these qualities came from, the brothers have said that it is from their “handsome, demanding father,” the Catholic social studies teacher. Though their father died in 1983, the brothers say their drive for success is fueled by a devotion to him.
They Grew Up Catholic
All of the Baldwins grew up as devout Catholics, because of their father. Alec credits his father’s faith for his own personal ambition to help others. The Baldwins even like to compare themselves to another famous, American dynasty: the Kennedys and have joked about one of them becoming president one day.
It is speculated that, if Alexander Baldwin hadn’t passed away early in their lives, the brothers wouldn’t have gotten involved in acting. Alexander had plans for his sons and was adamant that they become lawyers. He most likely would have objected to their publicized lives in the entertainment industry. But with dad Baldwin laid to rest, Hollywood’s call became louder.
