During the interview, Baldwin said he never pulled the trigger. “The trigger wasn’t pulled. I didn’t pull the trigger,” he stressed. “So, you never pulled the trigger?” When asked for confirmation, to which Baldwin responded. “No, no, no, no, no. I would never point a gun at anyone and pull a trigger at them.” When asked if he feels guilt, he replied: “No. no.” He then elaborated, “I might have killed myself if I thought I was responsible, and I don’t say that lightly.”
He added: “I have dreams about this constantly now. I go through my day, and I make it through the day. Then I collapse at the end of the day. Emotionally, I collapse.” Following the interview, his wife Hilaria Baldwin showed her support on Instagram. One day after the interview, she posted their kissing picture on her account and wrote along with it: ‘I am here, I love you, and I will take care of you’. These were the only words that came to me when we learned Halyna had died. I remember saying that phrase over and over again.”
She praised her husband for the interview: “I was afraid for you to open up because I’ve seen your spirit crushed, your mental health shattered, your soul in unimaginable pain. Sometimes I wonder how much one body, one mind can take. I don’t want to lose you. You know yourself and wanted to speak. I am proud of you. “You and I don’t always get it right, but we have big hearts and we love deeply.
“So I go back to, ‘I am here, I love you, and I’m going to take care of you’. We honour Halyna and her family. To hopefully figure out how this happened and whatever we can do to make sure it never happens again.” Baldwin later replied in the comment section: “I’m lucky. Sometimes it doesn’t seem that way to me. But having you and our familyaI’m the luckiest guy on Earth.”
