Alec Baldwin is writing his autobiography.

The '30 Rock' star - who has daughters Ireland, 19, with ex-wife Kim Basinger, and 17-month-old Carmen with pregnant spouse Hilaria Baldwin - has signed a deal with Harper, an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers, to pen a candid memoir named 'Nevertheless', which will be released in autumn 2016.

The tome is expected to cover everything from the 56-year-old star's upbringing in Long Island to his award-winning work on '30 Rock' and is billed as a story of "hits and flops, marriage, divorce," and some "opinions on the media and politics."

HarperCollins publisher Jonathan Burnham said in a statement: "Alec Baldwin is a larger-than-life talent with an astonishing range. And his life up to now has been far from dull.

"In this memoir he writes about his family, lovers, friends and enemies, confronts his former demons, relives the highs and lows of his career, and opens up in an unflinchingly honest way about his life and times.

"This memoir will be funny, occasionally combative, often moving and an unbelievably good read."

Alec, who will not use a ghostwriter, previously released a book about divorce and the family law system in 2008, entitled 'A Promise to Ourselves'.

It is not known how much he is being paid to write his autobiography.
