'Extraordinary' or 'just plain wrong': Photos of Hilaria Baldwin's post-baby body blow minds

Hilaria Baldwin works hard for her body.

The yogi, who’s married to actor Alec Baldwin, with whom she shares four young children, regularly offers inside looks at her workouts and her healthy lifestyle. Still, people were stunned when she revealed a photo Wednesday that showed how much her body has changed in the four-and-a-half months since giving birth to son Romeo in May.

Most of the commenters congratulated Baldwin on her progress, wanting to know what she eats in a day. They asked about the exact workout routine she does to stay fit.

Some, however, accused Baldwin of altering the photo or having undergone plastic surgery for her look.

See her transformation in the gallery below:

Hilaria Baldwin's sexiest post-baby Instagrams
The recovery from baby number 4 continues....I share my journey and posts here because I believe so strongly that smart exercise, good eating, and a calm mind= healthy body. And I want you to experience it too because life is so worth living to it’s max...and you are so worth it.
❤️ @badgleymischka @harrywinston
One of my travel secrets is I pack an @oralb child electric toothbrush (no charger needed...so you can pack light)...it’s frozen, of course ❄️🤪. Totally copying my 5 year old 😂 #toothtwinsies . (The dress is @cottoncitizen @sonyafezzastyle )
Probably one of the most asked for exercises on my page is diastasis rect aka abdominal separation. I haven’t posted about this because I didn’t suffer from it with my pregnancies and wanted to do a lot of research before offering solutions. Most important concept is to CONTRACT AND ZIPPER UP YOUR ABS, RIGHT THROUGH THE MIDDLE OF YOUR TUMMY. Think about where the separation is and try to connect it again, through activation of core. Maintain this and 1: Releve and tuck hips under and foreword for 10. 2: Incline forward, pull in tighter through your lower belly, flex feet and pulse for 10. 3: Stand again, releve and shake hips side to side for 20. 3 sets of all 3 exercises. YOU MUST MAINTAIN CONTRACTION, OR IT WONT WORK. Do daily in am and pm...share with your friends so you can help them too #wegotthis2018 ps wardrobe choice is to show proper form. All fashion police will be blocked immediately 👮🏼‍♀️
Arms, butt, hamstrings. 5 on each side...3 sets ❤️ #wegotthis2018 (baby not necessary 😜) ps...do it above your knee. Not on top of it...notice how I’m shifting forward. This will prevent knee pain.
10 weeks, one day...it’s been a while since I posted an update photo like this. I do it to inspire feeding and exercising your body right. If it resonates with you, wonderful! If not, think of it as a bikini and scroll past ❤️ #wegotthis2018
Legs and butt! 3 sets 20...Carmen ran into the frame naked, so had to cut🙈...but you get the picture 😂 #wegotthis2018
Today’s post may seem a bit silly, but, if you look closely, im attempting to drink from a reusable straw...way hard in a handstand 😂! I learned embarrassingly recently how bad straws are for our planet. I have completely eliminated plastic straws from our home, and, for a while now, we have been using metal, glass, and occasionally paper versions. We really need to get serious about this issue. It doesn’t stop with straws, but it sure is a good place to start. I have been so inspired by people such a @adriangrenier , @lonelywhale , and @unenvironment who are educating, inspiring, and spreading the word. We all add up...so a little goes a long way. And, poco a poco, it becomes second nature to go as plastic free as possible. 💜 #wegotthis2018 #stopsucking
Biceps, back, and triceps. 5 reps of the first two exercises and then 10 of the third. One of my favs from working out with @chadlevy today @physique57 online app! #wegotthis2018 bikini is @triangl
In my book, The Living Clearly Method, I opened up about growing up with an eating disorder. I turned to yoga, health and wellness to heal my body and my mind. I think back to my old self and how much I would have struggled with gaining weight during pregnancy and being patient with healthfully losing it. I’m so happy I can be a strong and happy mommy now, completely accepting of my body. I’m so excited to partner with @Aerie and @NEDA on their journey to create a culture to celebrate all bodies and empower women to embrace their true selves. For every unretouched photo shared with the hashtag #AerieREAL, @Aerie will donate $1 to @NEDA. #AeriePartner #WeGotThis2018
Abs! Getting my core back in shape post baby...10 of each and do daily. 45 seconds of abs goes a long way ❤️❤️❤️ #wegotthis2018 ps...for the outfit comments: my purpose is to show that it is a process to get back into shape. You can see my stomach that is still going down after having a baby and the cellulite in my legs. I don’t use any filter. I know so many people wait to show their bodies until they are back in shape. I want to teach people that it’s a process. And one we should not be ashamed of. I also take these videos in spare moments and this is what was happening. If it helps you to see the process, great...if not, unfollow. I have a zero tolerance policy for bullying. Whether that be at others or at me.
9 months to 12 days postpartum (I took the photo on the right two days ago). Every body is different, but I believe in staying as active as possible. There were so many moments when I didn’t want to work out this pregnancy. Showing up is the most difficult challenge. I had to drag myself out and do even a little. Consistency helped me so much though...because the body wants attention and wants to be moved. So important for your circulation, your health, your happiness, and for your strength. I just started being able to workout yesterday. Slow and steady. Nothing crazy. Each birth is different and your doctor will be able to advise you on when you can begin. When you can, be patient with your body. You have been through so much and created something so precious. Know that day by day, movement by movement, you will regain your strength and feel amazing. #wegotthis2018
I always post a photo in this mirror in my hospital room within 24 hours after having my babies (except with Carmen...I was too much of a nervous first time mama 😂). I wanted to hold off the other day out of respect for the school shooting. I took this photo, Friday, the morning after this new baby was born. My purpose here is to normalize the postpartum figure and over the next days, weeks, and months, show you how I strengthen my body and return to my non pregnant self. You all came with me through my pregnancy...now it’s time to turn back into me. We all come in different shapes, sizes, and health experiences...but given the right love and care, we can feel really good within our skin. We just have to be patient and kind with our bodies. I’ll post my last two postpartum photos (Rafa and Leo) in my stories, so you can remember how we did this before. They are not glamorous, there is no filter, and I have a super sleepy face...but they are part of my real journey. I have so much respect and admiration for the human body...I hope that intention shines through and we can inspire each other to be healthier and happier. #wegotthis2018

Baldwin — who’s also mom to 5-year-old daughter Carmen and two sons, Leonardo, 2, and Rafael, 3 — made it clear that the bikini photos she shared were all natural.

“Believe what you will,” she told one commenter who cried Photoshop. “I can barely get email straight, let alone use some fancy photoshop. I dont even use filters. Just the brighten feature to show the pic better. But…as I said: you do you…you believe what makes you happy. In the end, it changes nothing.”

As for her chest, Baldwin said she hasn’t gone under the knife.

“It’s called breastfeeding. I may choose that route one day when I’m out of babies…but for now they are real,” Baldwin said.

People also alleged Baldwin was making “other moms feel bad about themselves” and looked unhealthy in the most recent snapshot of her body.

Baldwin is an old pro at dealing with social media haters, so she probably won’t be slowed down by this. She’s kept track of her fitness progress on Instagram since her youngest was born.

We’re guessing that her message to the haters still applies: “Just move on to somewhere else.”
