Alec Baldwin tells Ellen how he keeps younger wife busy

There's a 26 year age difference between he and his wife Hilaria, 33.

And on Wednesday, Alec Baldwin, 59, joked about that difference when he chatted with Ellen on her talk show.

The SNL star admitted that he often keeps his wife, with whom he has three children, busy so she doesn't realize he is much older. And it's all worth it as the actor added: 'I'm madly in love.'

The Aviator actor talked candidly, and humorously, about the difficulties in staying married to his younger wife, yoga instructor Hilaria. 

He discussed their recent vow renewals, undertaken on their fifth anniversary and implied that the celebration of love was actually a cynical ploy to keep his wife invested in their marriage. 

'When you're 26 years older than your wife, you've got to keep them faked out a lot.'
