"A lot of people around Alec think it’s bonkers for him to consider doing a reality show now when he’s absolutely consumed with stress and worry," another insider added. "He’s doing this show but with a heavy heart and Hilaria’s not giving him much of an option."

As OK! previously reported, Alec was indicted by a grand jury on an involuntary manslaughter charge in January for the accidental death of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins during the filming of the movie Rust.

According to legal papers, the It's Complicated star was deemed responsible for the death of the film staffer "by an act committed with the total disregard or indifference for the safety of others, and the act was such that an ordinary person would anticipate that death might occur under the circumstances."

The Boss Baby actor previously stated that the only reason he would want to participate in a reality show about his family is to station himself at home rather than traveling for work.
