The Handmaid’s Tale has scooped the top drama honors at this year’s Emmy Awards winning five awards including best drama series, best actress for Elisabeth Moss and best supporting actress for Ann Dowd.

Big Little Lies won five prizes in the limited series categories, including wins for Nicole Kidman and Laura Dern.

Riz Ahmed won best lead actor in a limited series or movie for The Night Of.

Charlie Brooker, who won best writing for a limited series for his Netflix show Black Mirror.

One of the episodes, San Junipero, also won the trophy for best TV movie. Charlie Brooker said it “was a story about love, and love will defeat hate, it will win”.

John Oliver and his writing team scooped two prizes for satirical show Last Week Tonight. He said a show like his could definitely work in the UK.

The Handmaid’s Tale’s win for best drama series means Hulu has become the first streaming service to win that award, beating the likes of big hitters Netflix and Amazon.

Bruce Miller – who won two trophies as the show’s writer and executive producer – thanked author Margaret Atwood, “who created this world for all of us”. The show is adapted from Margaret Atwood’s 1985 novel.

Emmys 2016: Game of Thrones Breaks Record for Highest Number of Awards

Emmys 2015: Game of Thrones Becomes First Show to Win Most Emmy Awards in One Night

Emmys 2014: Breaking Bad wins outstanding drama series award

In the limited series categories, HBO’s Big Little Lies won best lead actress, (Nicole Kidman), supporting actress (Laura Dern), supporting actor (Alexander Skarsgard), director (Jean-Marc Vallee) and best limited series.

Accepting the award for best limited series, Nicole Kidman said: “The power of television has astounded us, you allowed us into your living rooms… but as much as the show has the entertainment value, it’s about the issues.”

The series, which deals with themes such as domestic violence, also stars Reese Witherspoon, who encouraged the TV industry to provide “more great roles for women”.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus won best actress in a comedy series for Veep for the sixth year in a row – breaking the record for the most Emmys won by a lead actor for the same role.

Veep, which was created by Armando Iannucci, also won one of the night’s top prizes for best comedy series.

Sterling K. Brown’s win for best lead actor in a drama series marked the first time an African-American actor had won in the category in almost 20 years.

He continued his acceptance speech in the press room after being cut off on the main stage.

Host Stephen Colbert and several of the winners made political references on stage.

“At long last, Mr. President, here is your Emmy,” said Alec Baldwin as he collected his prize for supporting actor in a comedy series, mocking Donald Trump’s frustration at never having won for The Apprentice.

Alec Baldwin regularly portrays Donald Trump on comedy sketch show Saturday Night Live, which won four awards including best variety sketch series and best supporting actress in a comedy series for Kate McKinnon.

Several high-profile series failed to live up to expectations, including Westworld and Stranger Things, which both went home empty-handed.

Game of Thrones, a big winner at previous Emmys, was not eligible this year because episodes from its last series didn’t air during the Emmys eligibility window.

Likewise, Twin Peaks will have to wait until 2018 to be considered.

Alec Baldwin’s Donald Trump impersonation on Saturday Night Live tricked El Nacional newspaper in the Dominican Republic into thinking he was the real thing.

El Nacional has now apologized for accidentally publishing a still of Alec Baldwin, captioned as the American president, next to Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu.

The image accompanied an article about Israeli settlements.

El Nacional has said sorry to readers and “anyone affected”.

The picture was sent to the newspaper along with information about SNL.

No-one spotted the mistake, says El Nacional.

SNL is not Donald Trump’s favorite TV program. He says Alec Baldwin’s frequent impressions of him “stink”.

“Not funny, cast is terrible, always a complete hit job. Really bad television!” Donald Trump once tweeted.

Donald Trump’s allies have said he is a “genius” if a New York Times report is true that he paid no federal income taxes for 18 years.

The New York Times said it had received some of Donald Trump’s 1995 tax documents revealing $915m losses that allowed him to legally avoid paying taxes.

Donald Trump’s camp refused to confirm or deny the report, but said the filing was “illegally obtained”.

Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton’s campaign called the report a “bombshell”.

Donald Trump’s surrogates took to the airwaves on October 2 to defend him.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said the New York Times article was a “very good story” because it showcased the “genius” of Donald Trump.

Chris Christie told Fox News Sunday the report would only underline that Donald Trump is best qualified to ease tax policy on working people.

Former New York Rudy Giuliani, a close adviser to Donald Trump, also said the Republican candidate was an “absolute genius” if he avoided federal income taxes.

“A lot of the people that are poor take advantage of loopholes and pay no taxes,” Rudy Giuliani told NBC’s Meet the Press on October 2.

“Those are loopholes also.”

Donald Trump himself played down the report tweeting: “I know our complex tax laws better than anyone who has ever run for president and am the only one who can fix them. #[email protected]

During the first presidential debate on September 26, Hillary Clinton attacked Donald Trump for not releasing his tax returns, as all previous White House candidates have done since Jimmy Carter in 1976.

Hillary Clinton suggested he was hiding “something terrible” and that he had perhaps not paid any federal income tax. Donald Trump replied: “That makes me smart.”

In its article, the New York Times said three pages of documents were anonymously sent last month to one of its reporters who had written about Donald Trump’s finances.

A former accountant for Donald Trump, Jack Mitnick, whose name appears as Trump’s tax preparer of the filings, said the documents appeared to be authentic copies of portions of the 1995 returns, according to the New York Times.

Donald Trump’s campaign did not directly address the authenticity of the excerpts, but the New York Times said a Trump lawyer had emailed the newspaper arguing that publication of the records was illegal.

His camp accused the publication, which has endorsed Hillary Clinton for president, of being “an extension of the Clinton campaign”.

Donald Trump, the campaign added, was a “highly skilled businessman who has a fiduciary responsibility to his business, his family and his employees to pay no more tax than legally required.

“That being said, Mr. Trump has paid hundreds of millions of dollars in property taxes, sales and excise taxes, real estate taxes, city taxes, state taxes, employee taxes and federal taxes, along with very substantial charitable contributions.”

Hillary Clinton’s camp said Donald Trump embodied the “rigged system” of an unfair US tax code.

Her campaign manager Robby Mook said in a statement: “This bombshell report reveals the colossal nature of Donald Trump’s past business failures and just how long he may have avoided paying any federal income taxes whatsoever.”

Hillary Clinton has already disclosed nearly 40 years of federal income tax returns, while Donald Trump’s running mate, Mike Pence, has made publicly available 10 years of his tax returns.

At an October 1rally, Donald Trump appeared to accuse Hillary Clinton of marital infidelity.

“Hillary Clinton’s only loyalty is to her financial contributors and to herself,” the Republican told thousands gathered in Manheim, Pennsylvania.

“I don’t think she’s even loyal to Bill if you want to know the truth. Why should she be, right?”

Meanwhile, Alec Baldwin has debuted his impression of Donald Trump on Saturday Night Live, parodying the candidate’s pronunciation of China, among other things.

Sporting a blonde wig and a lip-puckering scowl, Alec Baldwin appeared on the comedy show alongside SNL regular Kate McKinnon as Hillary Clinton, using a walking cane.

Alec Baldwin was arrested Tuesday after riding a bicycle the wrong way on a New York street, police said.

Alec Baldwin, 56, was issued two summonses and arrested after he allegedly rode his bike the wrong direction down Fifth Avenue.

The actor allegedly became angry and started yelling at police after they asked him for identification to give him a summons, police said.

Alec Baldwin allegedly refused to provide his identification to the officers, which prompted them to arrest him and take him to a nearby precinct, according to the Associated Press.

Apparently upset that he was arrested, Alec Baldwin tweeted the arresting officer’s name and badge number, and then lambasted New York City.

“New York City is a mismanaged carnival of stupidity that is desperate for revenue and anxious to criminalize behavior once thought benign,” Alec Baldwin tweeted. He also said photographers were “once again” outside his home, and that they’d scared his daughter.

Alec Baldwin is to appear in court July 24.

“Police stated that he got belligerent and started arguing with them and using profanity,” Deputy Chief Kim Y. Royster said.

Once in custody, Alec Baldwin was taken to a nearby precinct, where he reportedly asked the desk supervisor: “How old are these officers, that they don’t know who I am?” according to a law enforcement official.

Alec Baldwin was stopped for riding a bicycle the wrong way on Fifth Avenue and 16th Street, police said.

In a statement, a representative for Alec Baldwin said: “He is back home with his family.”

Alec Baldwin defended Martin Bashir on Twitter late Wednesday and had some harsh words for MSNBC after the journalist’s resignation.

“I wish @MartinBashir the best of luck,” Alec Baldwin wrote.

“Some of these cable venues really are Off-Off Television.”

“And their need for a reliable, even forced, homogeneity is more apparent than ever.”

Alec Baldwin, whose own MSNBC show Up Late was canceled two weeks ago after the actor was caught on camera using a gay slur, said  Martin Bashir’s career shouldn’t have been ruined by one transgression.

“Broadcasters on certain networks are called upon to offer analysis of events and public policy, day in, day out, often with tremendous aggression and scalding language,”  Alec Baldwin wrote.

“If, over the course of hundreds of hours on air, they commit a foul… then it’s like high-sticking in hockey or a late hit in the NFL. Throw a flag. But to end someone’s job?”

Martin Bashir resigned from the network Wednesday following flap over comments he made on air criticizing former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin.

Up Late With Alec Baldwin has been cancelled, weeks after it was suspended following reports the actor had used an anti-gay slur.

MSNBC and Alec Baldwin jointly confirmed that the actor’s chat show “will not continue”.

“This is a mutual parting and we wish Alec all the best,” said a statement.

Alec Baldwin, 55, claimed gay activists had “killed” his show, but acknowledged he had to take “some responsibility” for his actions.

The show was suspended for two weeks when Alec Baldwin was caught on video, apparently insulting a photographer using a homophobic epithet.

Alec Baldwin disputed using the term, claiming the audio was unclear, but he nonetheless posted an apology on the MSNBC website.

“I did not intend to hurt or offend anyone with my choice of words, but clearly I have,” Alec Baldwin wrote earlier this month.

“Words are important. I understand that and will choose mine with great care going forward.”

Up Late With Alec Baldwin, which had dropped considerably in the ratings since its mid-October debut, was due to return on Friday.

Alec Baldwin said a “fundamentalist wing of gay advocacy” had played a part in the show’s cancellation.

Canadian actress Genevieve Sabourin has been convicted of stalking Alec Baldwin and sentenced to six months in jail.

Genevieve Sabourin, 41, was found guilty of stalking, attempted aggravated harassment, harassment and attempted contempt of court.

The judgement in New York came a day after Genevieve Sabourin was sentenced to 30 days in prison for contempt of court.

Alec Baldwin, 55, testified during the trial that Genevieve Sabourin had besieged him with unwanted phone calls and emails.

The actor denied having a relationship with Genevieve Sabourin and accused her of subjecting him and his wife Hilaria Baldwin to “dangerous” harassment.

Alec Baldwin testified that he had met Genevieve Sabourin over lunch with a mutual friend in 2000 when he was filming in Montreal.

He said he had met her again in 2010 to offer her career advice – a meeting Genevieve Sabourin claimed had ended as a romantic relationship.

Genevieve Sabourin said she had merely wanted him to explain why he did not want to see her anymore following their alleged brief romance.

Judge Thomas Mandelbaum said on Thursday that Genevieve Sabourin had no right to pursue contact with Alec Baldwin that she knew would be unwelcome.

He said she had waged a “relentless and escalating campaign of threats” against Alec and Hilaria Baldwin and had shown an “utter lack of respect” for the law.

Genevieve Sabourin was composed but defiant after the verdict was announced, telling the judge she was “innocent” and had not done anything wrong.

Hilaria and Alec Baldwin welcomed their first child together, a baby daughter, on Friday.

Hilaria Baldwin, 29, gave birth to Carmen Gabriela at Mount Sinai hospital in New York.

The yoga instructor proudly shared their baby news on Twitter, writing: “We are overjoyed to announce the birth of our daughter Carmen Gabriela. She is absolutely perfect.”

Alec Baldwin, 55, was early spotted arriving the hospital carrying several heavy bags ahead of the birth.

His daughter Ireland, from his marriage to Kim Basinger, also took to Twitter to share her joy.

Ireland Baldwin, 17, wrote: “Welcome to the world, Carmen! I’m a f***ing sister!The best big sister!! Love you so much”

Then she added: “I was born October 23. Carmen was born Friday, August 23.”

Hilaria Baldwin previously revealed plans for a natural childbirth, although she admitted she could choose an epidural if the pain got too bad.

She said: “Right now, I want to do it naturally. That’s not to say there’s something wrong with the epidural, but that’s the way I was raised  –  I’m a pretty natural person. But if it does get to the point where I am screaming for the epidural, I have no problems with that. We’ll see where it goes.”

Hilaria and Alec Baldwin revealed they were expecting a girl several months ago. She recently showing off the baby’s pastel designed nursery complete with yoga mats.

Before settling on Carmen, Hilaria Baldwin said she wanted a name that reflected the child’s American and Spanish heritage.

Hilaria Baldwin told the New York Post: “We’re kicking it around. We want a name reflecting America as well as my family from Spain.”

Kim Basinger, 59, started off her career as a model before turning to acting and Ireland hopes she ages as well as her mother.

Ireland Baldwin said: “She looks like she’s my age. Her body, I swear, it’s scary.”

Even Alec Baldwin, who bitterly divorced Kim Basinger in 2002, can’t deny Kim’s beauty, recently calling her “one of the most beautiful women that ever lived”.

Alec Baldwin said of his ex-wife: “[Ireland’s] mother is obviously one of the most beautiful women that [has] ever lived – and even divorce doesn’t muddy my view of that. Kim is one of the most beautiful women that ever lived and even Ireland sees that.

“The good news is my daughter is someone who somewhat understands . . . It’s hard at that age to have that wisdom that beauty comes and goes.”

Alec and Hilaria Baldwin took to Twitter during James Gandolfini’s funeral service on Thursday.

The pregnant yoga instructor’s social media feed was full of upbeat posts while James Gandolfini’s friends, family and co-stars were gripped with grief at a New York Catholic church.

Hilaria Baldwin’s messages included a request for ideas about wedding anniversary presents and promotional notes about her upcoming appearance on the Rachael Ray show.

The 29-year-old, who is due to give birth to her first child this summer, did make time to pay tribute to James Gandolfini amid the social media flurry, writing: “The circle of life is unbelievable – birth, life, death… Please take care of yourselves as life is fragile. Rest in Peace Jimmy.”

Hilaria Baldwin barely skipped a beat before changing the tone, writing: “What did you do for your first wedding anniversary? What did you give your partner? Ours is coming up!”

During the time of the service, she re-tweeted a post from the Rachael Ray show, promoting one of her own recipes of a summer smoothie.

“I’m sure you have some amazing recipes!” Hilaria Baldwin wrote.

She also re-tweeted a “cute” Us Weekly article about herself, which saw her throwing a baby show for “Military moms-to-be”.

At one point, Hilaria Baldwin directed a magazine to get in touch with her publicist.

She also claimed she didn’t have her cell with her, tweeting: “FYI I don’t believe in bringing phones into a funeral and I never did and I never would.”

Sources close to Hilaria Baldwin insist to that the couple left the ceremony early through a side exit because she was feeling “faint” in the heat and she tweeted from her car on the way home. It’s unclear exactly how long they stayed.

Meanwhile, Alec Baldwin appeared to promote a new movie titled Dirty Wars, posting a link just a short time before he honored James Gandolfini.

Eventually, Alec Baldwin, 55, tweeted: “The end of The Sopranos has a different meaning to me now. Rest in Peace, Jimmy.”

He also posted a link to a news article on the funeral.

Hilaria and Alec Baldwin were among the throngs of stars who turned out at the Cathedral Church of Saint John the Divine in New York to say goodbye to the beloved actor.

James Gandolfini’s wife Deborah Lin gave a heart-wrenching eulogy for her ‘honest, kind and loving’ husband in the cathedral.

The first family member to speak, Deborah Lin described James Gandolfini as someone who “cared more about others than himself” and said she enjoyed watching him be a wonderful father to his two children.

“Jim, one of the things I loved the most was watching you be the father that you were to Michael and Lily,” she said.

“Thank you for the memories of the beautiful life we shared together. I love you Jim and I always will. Rest in Peace.”

James Gandolfini’s sister Johanna Antonacci and actor Lennie Loftin also did readings during the ceremony, which began at 10 a.m. local time at the Cathedral Church of Saint John the Divine and Sopranos creator David Chase read out a letter he had written to his leading man.

James Gandolfini’s son, Michael, who tragically found his father dying in an Italian hotel room while the pair were on vacation last week, looked teary-eyed as he arrived at the church just moments after the actor’s casket was escorted inside.

Michael Gandolfini joined more than 1,000 mourners including Edith “Edie” Falco, James Gandolfini’s on-screen wife Carmela in the HBO hit show at for the ceremony, which lasted two hours and was described as a “wonderful” tribute to the star.

Other cast members who came to pay their respects included pregnant Jamie Lynn-Sigler, who played Tony Soprano’s daughter Meadow, Aida Turturro, who played his sister Janice, John Ventimiglia, who portrayed Artie Bucco, and Michael Imperioli, who starred as Tony’s nephew Christopher Moltisanti.

James Gandolfini died of a heart attack at age 51 while holidaying in Rome, Italy, with his son last week.

Ireland Baldwin shows an incredible resemblance to her mother Kim Basinger as she attended the amfAR Inspiration Gala in New York on Thursday in a breath-taking black gown.

Ireland Baldwin, 17, ruled the red carpet when she stood on the steps of the historic Plaza Hotel in Manhattan, revealing that she is true Hollywood royalty.

And it was plain to see just how much she resembled her similarly stunning mother, actress Kim Basinger.

Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger’s model daughter was dripping in glamour in a curve-kissing black gown with capped sleeves that rested on her arms and showed off her toned shoulders.

The sweeping train meant that the dress was long enough even for the Amazon-sized teenager who has inherited tall genes from her 6 foot tall father and 5’6 1/2″ mother, but surpassed both of them in height.

While the lace topped bodice of the beautiful dress hung low on her bust-line, the classic cut meant that the overall silhouette was elegant.

Large silver cluster earrings and heavy sparkling bangles added a dramatic touch, while Ireland Baldwin kept her makeup simple with pale lips, lush dark lashes, and smooth bronzed skin.

Ireland Baldwin’s hair is most often seen loose and natural like any carefree California teen, but for the special occasion she had it secured back in a sophisticated chignon with long, perfectly straight bangs falling over her face.

As she stared out with a sultry expression through the blonde fringe, Ireland Baldwin looked shockingly similar to her stunning mom, Kim Basinger.

Ireland Baldwin, who recently scored a top contract with agency IMG, recently told People.com she is working hard towards her goal of becoming a top model: “I’m getting into it. Doing it right. I want to know where it’s going to take me.”

She said she was inspired by a number of contemporary models including Kate Moss and Miranda Kerr, but of course also looks up to Kim Basinger.

“Oh! And my mom, of course,” Ireland Baldwin told People.

“My mom’s very happy she can finally give me tips. She’s always there, so she’ll stand in the back and say, <<Turn your head this way, or do this>>.”

Kim Basinger and Alec Baldwin were once Hollywood’s most glamorous couple who became bitter enemies, but now the actor has paid the ultimate compliment to his ex-wife by dubbing her “one of the most beautiful women that ever lived”.

Now happily married to his stunning new wife Hilaria Thomas, Alec Baldwin, 55, seems to no longer bear any hard feelings towards Kim Basinger.

Alec Baldwin, who is expecting a new baby with 28-year-old yoga instructor Hilaria Thomas, was gushing when he spoke about Kim Basinger, 59, to Access Hollywood.

“Ireland’s mother is obviously one of the most beautiful women that ever lived – and even divorce doesn’t muddy my view of that,” the actor said.

“Kim is one of the most beautiful women that ever lived and even Ireland sees that.”

And despite their differences in the past, Alec Baldwin believes his 17-year-old daughter has the perfect role model in her famous mother as she tries to make a name for herself in the modelling world.

The 30 Rock star revealed he is not worried about any potential pitfalls that await stunning Ireland because he believes that she has what it takes to succeed.

He said: “The good news is my daughter is someone who somewhat understands .. it’s hard at that age to have that wisdom that beauty comes and goes.”

During the 1990s Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger were one of the hottest couples at Hollywood before their marriage imploded and they divorced in 2002.

The pair went on to have a bitter custody battle over daughter Ireland which lasted many years, although now an apparent truce has emerged.

These days Alec Baldwin seems to be settling for a more settled domestic life as he prepares to welcome his first child with his second wife Hilaria.

“I never imagined I would be sitting at a table with my wife having a baby and I have a daughter that’s almost 18 years-old. It’s bizarre,” Alec Baldwin admitted.

Alec Baldwin picked up wife Hilaria during a photocall for Seduced and Abandoned at the Cannes Film Festival on Tuesday.

Alec Baldwin, 55, was seen grinning with delight as he toted his stunning wife, who placed a protective hand on her stomach as she was hoisted into the air.

Beaming widely, Alec Baldwin certainly didn’t appear to be struggling as he lifted Hilaria, 29, who smiled somewhat indulgently at her husband’s antics.

Alec Baldwin looked as dapper as ever in a navy jacket, open-neck blue shirt and grey trousers for the photocall, teamed with smart black shoes and a pair of sunglasses.

Hilaria Baldwin, meanwhile, opted for teal silk sleeveless dress with a black waistband detail and sky-high black heels – clearly not suffering enough with her pregnancy to forgo heels for flats.

The pair’s appearance at the photocall came after they made a stunning appearance on the red carpet for the premiere of new movie Blood Ties on Monday night.

Hilaria Baldwin, who was recently named on Vanity Fair‘s list of the best dressed pregnant celebrities, tweeted ahead of her arrival to the festival that she would be missing her two dogs, saying: “It’s even harder leaving them while I’m pregnant. Their cries make me cry!”

Alec Baldwin’s HBO documentary Seduced and Abandoned – directed by his friend James Toback – was filmed during last year’s film festival and follows the actor running between yachts and hotels trying to pitch a movie he hopes to finance and make.

It also includes interviews conducted by Alec Baldwin with directors such as Francis Ford Coppola, Roman Polanski and Martin Scorsese, as well as actors Ryan Gosling and Jessica Chastain.

Alec Baldwin famously lost his cool with film producer Harvey Weinstein at last year’s Cannes film festival.

But it appears that Alec Baldwin, 55, has managed to keep his fiery temper under control this time around.

Looking dapper and thankfully relaxed on the red carpet on Monday alongside his pregnant wife Hilaria Baldwin, 29, Alec was in Cannes to promote his new documentary film Seduced and Abandoned.

Alec Baldwin’s HBO documentary Seduced and Abondoned – directed by his friend James Toback – was filmed during last year’s film festival and follows the actor running between yachts and hotels trying to pitch a movie he hopes to finance and make.

It also includes interviews conducted by Alec Baldwin with directors such as Francis Ford Coppola, Roman Polanski and Martin Scorsese, as well as actors Ryan Gosling and Jessica Chastain.

And it was during this process that Alec Baldwin lost his temper with Harvey Weinstein, who wouldn’t help Alec finance the film.

Alec Baldwin allegedly called the 60-year-old producer a “f***ing douchebag” after he refused Alec’s pitch.

But Alec Baldwin was quick to issue Harvey Weinstein with an apology by writing him a note at the amfAR charity event last year.

Harvey Weinstein said in a statement: “Alec couldn’t have been more gracious. We all lose our tempers sometime; trust me I have, too. We all appreciated his generosity to everyone at amfAR.”

His reps also explained that Harvey Weinstein couldn’t be involved in Alec Baldwin’s project because he had a hectic schedule at the time.

Filmmaker James Toback’s most recent film was the 2008 documentary on boxer Mike Tyson called Tyson.

Hopefully Alec Baldwin was able to keep his well-documented temper at bay during the rest of the filming.

Meanwhile, Alec Baldwin’s wife Hilaria brought the glamour to Cannes in her glittering grey dress and pink heels, despite being heavily pregnant.

Hilaria Baldwin, who was recently named on Vanity Fair‘s list of the best dressed pregnant celebrities, tweeted ahead of her arrival to the festival that she would be missing her two dogs, saying: “It’s even harder leaving them while I’m pregnant. Their cries make me cry!”

Alec Baldwin, who has a 17-year-old daughter Ireland with ex-wife Kim Basinger, recently revealed his delight at becoming a father once again with his Yoga teacher wife Hilaria Thomas.

The actor said: “It’s really like a dream come true.

“Because as much as I have struggled as a divorced parent – and God knows, I’ve had my ups and downs – the only thing that I regret was that I missed so much of my daughter’s childhood because of this contentious situation.”

She wore her hair loose over her shoulders and added a slick of apricot lipstick to complement her bright orange outfit.

Alec Baldwin, 55, also dressed smartly for the walk, donning a baby blue shirt and olive green trousers.

Spanish-born Hilaria Baldwin recently told US Weekly that she plans to talk in her native tongue with her infant daughter.

“It’s a little tricky because my husband doesn’t speak Spanish, so that’ll be a little tricky in the house,” she said.

“But maybe we will have our own conversation and he’ll have to learn. We can talk behind his back. I cannot wait!”

“Beautiful mama @hilariabaldwin,” the model wrote on her Instagram.

Ireland Baldwin posted a picture of herself towering above her stepmother, hugging her and giving her a big kiss on the top of her head.

Pregnant yoga instructor Hilaria Baldwin looked stunning despite having to pose with a teenage model. She glowed in a pink bump hugging tank which she wore with black pants and a casual black sweater.

Ireland Baldwin meanwhile went for a more fashion forward look wearing skin tight black jeans with a white tank and a sleeveless oversize denim vest.

Joining them at Momofuku Milk Bar was Ireland Baldwin’s cousins Alaia and Hailey.

The two girls – who are Alec Baldwin’s brother Stephen’s children – were so excited to have a day with their Californian-based cousin that all three wore matching tanks.

The family day was particularly special for Ireland Baldwin who flew back to California on Friday night.

Ireland Baldwin lives with her mother, actress Kim Basinger, in Los Angeles but was in New York to do a swimwear fashion shoot.

Ireland Baldwin kicked off her modeling career with a sizzling swimsuit spread in the New York Post on Thursday.

Ireland Baldwin showcased her statuesque figure in a variety of candy-colored bikinis while aboard an 80-foot yacht on the Hudson River.

The 17-year-old daughter of Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger even braved New York’s chilly 40-degree temperatures while looking every bit the pro for her first big shoot the New York Post.

Ireland Baldwin flaunted her long pins and ample curves in everything from a sunny yellow two-piece, red halter bikini, and a beige snakeskin one-piece.

She is clearly the fashion world’s latest “It Girl” with upcoming features in W magazine and Vanity Fair.

“Shooting with the famous Patrick DeMarchelier today! I’m incredibly blessed,” the six-foot-two stunner tweeted on Thursday to her 30,000 followers.

Before now, Ireland Baldwin was best remembered in the media as “a thoughtless little pig” courtesy of her famous father’s furious 2007 phone rant.

Ironically, she chose to make her debut in the New York Post since Alec Baldwin has had a notoriously torrid relationship with the publication.

However, Ireland and Alec Baldwin “text and talk on the phone all the time” now, and they celebrated his 55th birthday together after his Broadway play, Orphans, last Monday.

The teen model told People.com she is working hard towards her goal of becoming a top model: “I’m getting into it. Doing it right. I want to know where it’s going to take me.”

Ireland Baldwin said she was inspired by a number of contemporary models including Kate Moss and Miranda Kerr, but of course looks up to her mother Kim Basinger.

“Oh! And my mom, of course,” she told People.

“My mom’s very happy she can finally give me tips. She’s always there, so she’ll stand in the back and say, <<Turn your head this way, or do this>>.”

At 6′ 2″ Ireland Baldwin certainly has the height to be a model and at a shoot on Tuesday she proved not only can take tips from her mother – she can also channel her.

Last month Ireland Baldwin was signed by IMG models and has been working solidly ever since.

Kim Basinger’s daughter announced the news on Twitter: “Officially working for @TwoManagement and @IMGmodels! I’m blessed, happy, and ready to WEEEEERK.”

Justin Timberlake put on both his host and musician cap as he took the stage at Saturday Night Live for the fifth time on Saturday night.

Justin Timberlake, 31, is one of the youngest to do so, and played to that honor in his opening monologue.

But as much as he joked, the singer played into those expectations as well – starting the hashtag #JTonSNL on Twitter and Instagram earlier in the week and posting preview snaps from rehearsal days before.

Then he introduced the audience to a little known SNL clique called the Five-Timers Club, which awards its members with a gold card.

“In case you don’t know, this is the most exclusive club in New York,” Justin Timberlake assured, before providing the audience with a peek inside the club.

Justin Timberlake walks off stage to a secret room, where he is instantly given a smoking jacket with the number 5 emblazoned on the chest – and greeted to the tunes of Paul Simon.

The Simon and Garfunkel frontman then introduces Justin Timberlake to the other members – which included a pipe-smoking Steve Martin, a bartending Dan Aykroyd, Chevy Chase, Martin Short, Tom Hanks, Alec Baldwin and Candace Bergen.

“Welcome to the club old boy,” 14-time host Steve Martin jeered.

“I always thought if an ‘Nsync member made the five timers club it would be Joey Fatone.”

“That’s a very big name for a very little baby.

“We have a different idea almost every single day.

“I think you actually have to look at it once it pops out and say, <<Who are you? What is your name?>>”
