Alec Baldwin celebrates 66th birthday by posting rare baby photo of himself as ... trends now

Alec Baldwin marked his 66th birthday on Instagram with a black-and-white baby picture.

This comes in the shadow of a court case involving his western Rust.

Rust's production was struck by tragedy in 2021, when cinematographer Halyna Hutchins was shot dead during a rehearsal with a Colt .45 being used as a prop.

Baldwin, who was holding the gun when it went off but has denied pulling the trigger, has been charged with manslaughter.

This Wednesday, as the trial loomed, Baldwin and his wife Hilaria got together with their seven children to commemorate a happier occasion.

Hilaria posted an Insta Stories picture of herself in the kitchen with the children, in the process of preparing the desserts for her husband's birthday celebrations.

It recently emerged Baldwin was offered a plea deal last year that would have seen him serve no jail time in connection with Hutchins' death.

Variety reported that before the actor could decide whether to accept the terms, prosecutors pulled the offer and said they would be indicting him. 

In a filing seen by the outlet, prosecutor Kary Morrissey offered 'a plea deal identical to the petty misdemeanor deal accepted by Dave Halls.

The filing states that the offer was made on October 5 and Baldwin was given until October 27 to decide, but prosecutors rescinded the offer on October 17. 

Halls, the first assistant director on Rust, did not serve prison time after pleading to a count of negligent handling of a deadly weapon.

He was given six months of unsupervised probation, a $500 fine, 24 hours of community service and ordered to take a firearm safety class. 

Baldwin's lawyers have accused the prosecutors in the case of a list of abuses and are looking to have case dismissed. 

Variety reported that his lawyers claim that Morrissey repeatedly leaked confidential information about the grand jury proceedings to an NBC reporter.

In November, lawyers representing the actor filed a motion for sanctions over that issue, and asked to have Morrisey and her co-counsel removed from the case.

They also sought to have monetary penalties imposed against Morrissey over her alleged misconduct. 

At a hearing on November 15, the judge overseeing the case admonished the parties not to disclose anything about the grand jury proceedings. 

The judge also postponed the grand jury proceeding from November to January to allow more time to review material the defense wanted to present. 

Attorney's for Baldwin allege that within an hour of
