‘Halyna, her name is Halyna. If you’re spending this much time waiting for us…’ she started, before the couple finished together: ‘you should know her name.’ 

When asked how he would describe the meeting with Hutchins’ husband and son, Baldwin said he ‘wouldn’t know how to characterize that.’

The items were reportedly delivered to the couple’s home on Thursday via a limousine driver. The delivery, which came exactly one week after the mother was fatally shot, was believed to be a haul of Halyna’s belongings being returned home from the movie set in New Mexico.  

Baldwin claimed he was a big support of getting ‘new measures’ enacted about about set safety after calling the event was a ‘one in a trillion’

‘How many bullets have been fired in films and tv shows in the last 75 years?’ he questions photographers. 

‘This is America. Probably billions,’ he said. ‘And nearly all of them without incident.’

‘It’s urgent for you to understand that I am not an expert in this field,’ he said. It’s ‘whatever other people’ decide. 

The couple asked photographers to stop following them after they talked out of ‘courtesy’ and that his children were ‘crying’ in the backseat after being harassed by photographers. 

Hilaria can be heard telling them to ‘go home’ and to ‘turn it [cameras] off now.’
