Alec Baldwin's mother, Carol Baldwin, has died. She was 92.

In a lengthy post on Instagram, the actor wrote: "Carol M. Baldwin, mother of actors Alec, Daniel, William and Stephen Baldwin and two daughters, Elizabeth and Jane, died today in Syracuse, New York. She was 92."

Alec went on to share details about her life, writing, "Born Carol Newcomb Martineau, in Syracuse on December 15, 1929, she was the child of Roy and Marion Martineau and had one brother, Daniel, and five sisters, Patricia, Joan, Diane, Louise and Rebecca."

He added that Carol met her husband Alexander R. Baldwin Jr. when they were students at Syracuse University. The family moved to Long Island, and while there, he worked as a history teacher and football and riflery coach at Massapequa High School. He later died in 1983 at age 55.

In the touching Instagram post, Alec shared, "My mother taught me about second acts. And third ones, too. She spent the last 25 years of her life as a fighter and a champion for the cause to which she devoted her life. We are all enormously proud of her accomplishments."

The post added that Carol is survived by her six children, 25 grandchildren, and 14 great-grandchildren. Details of a memorial will be shared at a later time.
