Carol was also mum to Daniel, William, Stephen, Elizabeth and Jane.
After the statement told his followers about his mum’s childhood and later life, Alec added: “My mother taught me about second acts. And third ones, too.

She captioned the snap: “She lives on in you, her other babies, their babies…our babies…in all of those who loved her and knew her big heart. Rest In Peace, Carol M. Baldwin”
On her Stories she shared another image of Alec being piled on by several of the pair’s kids alongside the words “One day, our babies will lose us too… Until then we hold each other tight and live each moment as fully as possible.”
She then uploaded a sweet video of Alec playing baseball with his children and wrote: “What a crew that bloomed from you, Carol.”
