Alec Baldwin's wife Hilaria is nursing a twisted ankle after injuring herself while running from members of the paparazzi.

The yoga teacher and new mum was working out on the streets of New York on Thursday (03Oct13) when she started being followed by two snappers on wheels.

Taking to her page, she writes, "Went out for a run today... Chased by 2 paps (sic) on bikes. One got close to me. Twisted my ankle."

Hilaria Baldwin has not described the incident in detail, but she did share a photo of her legs up on a couch with a bag of ice on her injured left ankle.

It is not yet known if the 29 year old is seeking to press charges against the photographers, but she was spotted chatting to cops shortly afterwards.

Her actor husband is no stranger to clashing with the paparazzi - he was last involved in an altercation with a snapper in August (13), while in June, 2012, he was accused of hitting a photographer after obtaining a marriage licence in the Big Apple.
