Baldwin has since spoken out to confirm she was named Hillary and born in Boston, but said she had also spent parts of her childhood in Spain and grew up speaking both languages.
The son of the president tweeted: “Alec Baldwin should play Alec Baldwin when SNL parodies his wife pretending she’s Spanish for the last few decades as opposed to the basic white girl from Mass that she actually is.
“It would be the first funny thing Saturday Night Live has produced in years.”

Hilaria addressed the allegations on Instagram earlier in the week, saying she used the name Hillary when growing up in the USA, and went by Hilaria in Spain, but that it became easier to consolidate the two: “I identify more as Hilaria because that’s what my family calls me”.
She added that her and husband Alec Baldwin celebrate both cultures in their home and are raising their children to be bilingual as she was.
