Alec Baldwin’s wife, Hilaria, shared a photo of him FaceTiming her Thursday just hours before the deadly shooting unfolded on the New Mexico set of his film “Rust.”

Hilaria had posted a screenshot of her speaking to Baldwin, who was in a vehicle on a highway at the time, on her Instagram Story Thursday morning.

The actor was in Santa Fe filming his upcoming Western drama at the Bonanza Creek Ranch, while Hilaria was at home in New York with their kids, according to her social media posts.

She posted the snap to her Story just hours before her husband’s prop gun accidentally discharged on the “Rust” set, killing cinematographer Halyna Hutchins, 42, and injuring director Joel Souza, 48.

An eyewitness told Hollywood gossip site Showbiz 411 that Baldwin started asking how he could have been given a “hot gun” — meaning a firearm loaded with real ammunition — immediately after the incident.

“In all my years, I’ve never been handed a hot gun,” the actor allegedly kept saying.

The witness said Baldwin was in shock after the ordeal and he “had no idea how badly they were hurt or Halyna was dead.”

Hutchins was airlifted to the University of New Mexico Hospital in Albuquerque, where she died from her injuries.

The director was treated at Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical Center in Santa Fe, authorities said.

The film set was sent into lockdown and production was halted immediately after the accidental double shooting.

“Detectives are investigating how and what type of projectile was discharged,” the Santa Fe Sheriff’s Office said in a statement.

No charges have been filed.

Baldwin was among those questioned by authorities, and he was pictured in tears as he spoke into a cellphone outside the sheriff’s office Thursday. His rep hasn’t responded to The Post’s request for comment.
