Hilaria-ous! Alec Baldwin laughs at his own joke as he picks up his pregnant wife during Cannes photocall

He certainly made viewers laugh with roles in projects such as 30 Rock, Friends and Beetlejuice.

And as well as keeping the public entertained, Alec Baldwin is also more than capable of making himself laugh - as he proved by giggling as he picked up wife Hilaria during a photocall for Seduced and Abandoned at the Cannes Film Festival on Tuesday.

The 55-year-old actor 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 certainly didn't appear to be struggling as he lifted Hilaria, 29, who smiled somewhat indulgently at her husband's antics.

Alec 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, 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, 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, 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.

He 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.'

Alec'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 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 lost his temper with film producer Harvey Weinstein, who wouldn't help Alec finance the film.

The 30 Rock actor allegedly called the 60-year-old producer a 'f***ing douchebag' after he refused Alec's pitch.

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

Mr. 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 couldn't be involved in Alec'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.

The comments below have not been moderated.

Why are people feeling sorry for her? She is a 29 year old woman not a child. She knew exactly what she was doing when she married Alec. She either wants fame and fortune, or perhaps she just likes the man, I personally think it's a little bit of both.

She'll have to adjust his hernia truss after that stunt. Lucky trophy wife!

Every time I see pictures of these two my eyes roll. What is he, her agent? Why is he constantly cramming this unknown yoga instructor down the public's throat? And I would think most grown women would be embarrassed by someone picking them up like a baby or a pet to show off, but not this lady. These two make me want to puke.

Looks like she gave Alex his happy pills. Hilarious certainly has the pose down pat. She must practice daily in front of the mirror.

For the record, he didn't "dump" his ex-wife to marry this one. They had a difficult marriage and an even more difficult divorce many years ago. He has been long divorced before he met this woman. If she has helped him to contain his anger and behavior, good for everyone. He has far too much talent and much to give, with that humor, as well as ability to act in other roles that are not humorous (I've seen one).
