Alec Baldwin cuts casual figure as he's seen using walking aid after hip replacement

Alec Baldwin has been seen out and about using walking aid after her underwent hip replacement surgery last month, with the actor cutting a casual figure in the process.

Seen walking around New York City on Friday, Alec looked in good spirits as he walked around the city while clutching onto a cane.

The 65-year-old actor, who has a list of film credits dating back to 1980, had hip replacement surgery at the end of May, which is his second joint replacement surgery in five years.

Alec had his left hip replaced in 2018, with him leaving his right hip replacement a little late, with him admitting that he needed it "at least two years ago".

Stepping out with the support of an aid after his "incredibly painful" procedure, Alec donned an all-black look which comprised of some slouchy black trousers, a black t-shirt and a charcoal shirt over the top.

The Cat In The Hat actor held what looked like a black blazer in one hand and wore smart black shoes as he navigated his way around the city.

Last month the actor's wife Hilaria Baldwin, 39, gave fans an update on Alec's health when she said in an Instagram post: "Alec got a new hip today…it was a long time necessary.

"We have been through so much together…as your partner and as you heal, I want so very much for you to leave this very intense chronic pain chapter behind and improve your quality of life."

She then thanked his doctors and medical staff, adding: "Grateful to Dr Davidovitch, Dr Miller, Dr Golden, Dr. Furgiuele, the nurses, pt, ot, staff and the other amazing people who so generously are bringing him safely through this."

Just last week Alec addressed his op when he took to Instagram to detail the "incredibly painful" recovery process.

“I had my left hip done in 2018, five years ago, and I had the other one done five days ago," he told his loyal legion of fans.

Touching on the pain following joint replacement surgery, Alec added: "The pain goes away gradually… but it is incredibly painful.

"But as we keep saying in my house, ‘It’s the pain that’s going to end the pain.’

"I needed this surgery done at least two years ago and walked around and limped and I did myself no favors because the compensatory damage you do to your back, your neck, your feet, and your knees is not great."

Alec has been married to wife Hilaria since 2012, with the loved up couple sharing seven children that they have welcomed since falling in love.

The couple share Carmen, nine; Rafael, seven; Leonardo, six; Romeo, five; Maria, two; Eduardo, two; and Ilaria, eight months.

Alec is also a dad to Ireland Baldwin, 27, whom he shares with ex-wife Kim Basinger.
