Alec Baldwin is counting his blessings after prosecutors in the “Rust” shooting announced they were dropping all the charges against him.

The Emmy-winning actor, 64, took to Instagram on Thursday to thank his wife, Hilaria Baldwin, and attorney Luke Nikas for helping him get through the trying times.

“I owe everything I have to this woman,” he captioned a flick snuggled up to his wife, adding, “(and to you, Luke)”

The post comes just hours after it was revealed that special prosecutors Kari Morrissey and Jason Lewis were planning to dismiss his involuntary manslaughter charges without prejudice.

“We are pleased with the decision to dismiss the case against Alec Baldwin and encourage a proper investigation into the facts and circumstances of this tragic accident,” Baldwin’s attorneys, Luke Nikas and Alex Spiro, told CNN.

Despite the good news, Morrissey told the outlet that the dismissal is “temporary pending further investigation” given the fact Alec’s co-defendant Hannah Gutierrez-Reed has yet to be cleared.

Cinematographer Halyna Hutchins was killed on the movie set in October 2021 after a live round was accidentally fired from Alec’s gun, hitting her in the chest.

Director Joel Souza was also shot and wounded, but no charges were filed in relation to his injuries.

Alec has maintained his innocence, pleading not guilty to the charges — which could’ve sent him to jail for 18 months — in February.

Meanwhile, Hilaria’s support for Alec never wavered, with the yoga instructor often praising her hubby on social media.

Coincidentally, “Rust” is set to restart filming in Montana this week, with the help of Hutchins’ widow, Matthew Hutchins, who is now an executive producer of the film.

Alec reached a settlement with Hutchins’ family in a wrongful death lawsuit soon after the tragic shooting.

The actor is still being sued by three “Rust” crew members, who claim they have suffered anxiety and symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder since the incident.
