Alec Baldwin’s Spanish speaking struggle

Los Angeles, Dec 8 (IANS) Actor Alec Baldwin thinks he’ll have mastered the Spanish language by the age of 90.

The 58-year-old actor has been learning the language since he met his wife Hilaria, who was born in the Spanish-speaking island of Majorca, and says he will “nail it” when he is 90, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

“My Spanish can only get better. It can only improve… maybe by the time I’m 90, I will nail it. I love Madrid. I think it’s one of my favourite cities in the world,” Baldwin told Hola! magazine.

But the “30 Rock” actor will have to brush up on his skills earlier than expected as his wife says they have decided to teach their daughter Carmen, 3, to speak Spanish as her first language.

“Carmen’s first language is Spanish. I only speak Spanish with her… and with Alec, she is smart enough to know that she needs to switch to English. Alec’s Spanish is getting better and better. His accent is very good,” Hilaria said.
