With the coronavirus pandemic not showing any signs of abating, Alec has been quarantining in a separate house "for months" to keep his wife and children safe, a source revealed.
Alec has been staying somewhere else "while he goes back and forth to the city."
Alec has been staying in a rental home in Amagansett, N.Y., while his family stays in their Hamptons home a mile away.
"I go into New York and work a little bit and come back and have to quarantine here for a few days," Alec said on Instagram Live last month. "It’s not a lot of fun."
However, he managed to get a few days off and spent Christmas with his wife and their kids.
Alec stepped up to defend his wife following her Spanish heritage controversy, where she was accused of faking her Spanish accent, hiding the fact that she was born in Boston and lying about her real name being Hillary.
When a troll left a nasty comment about Hilaria on one of his posts, Alec promptly told them to "go f**k" themselves.
Alec has been "100 percent supporting her during this time," a source told said, adding that he is "completely upset that people are saying that she lied."
"Happy birthday to the love of my life. To the only person in the world who brings me joy and peace every day. The person who is my home. My everything," Alec wrote on Instagram for Hilaria’s birthday last week.
"I’ve seen chatter online questioning my identity and culture," Hilaria said on Instagram when she first addressed the controversy. "This is something I take very seriously, and for those who are asking — I’ll reiterate my story, as I’ve done many times before. I was born in Boston and grew up spending time with my family between Massachusetts and Spain. My parents and sibling live in Spain and I chose to live here, in the USA."
"The things I have shared about myself are very clear. I was born in Boston. I spent time in Boston and in Spain. My family now lives in Spain. I moved to New York when I was 19 years old and I have lived here ever since. For me, I feel like I have spent 10 years sharing that story over and over again," Hilaria told The New York Times days later.
