Hilaria Baldwin confirms she miscarried fifth child with Alec Baldwin

Hilaria Baldwin confirmed on Tuesday, April 9, that she miscarried her fifth child with husband Alec Baldwin.

“There was no heartbeat today at my scan…so it’s over…but I have some pretty strong and amazing heartbeats right here,” the yoga instructor, 35, captioned a photo with her husband and their four children, Carmen, 5, Rafael, 3, Leonardo, 2, and Romeo, 10 months. “I am surrounded by such love and I feel so fortunate. Thank you all for listening, for your support, and for sharing your own personal stories. We are stronger together…I hope this conversation continues to grow and that we stick together through both the beautiful and challenging moments in life. Much love and appreciation to all of you.”

Hilaria revealed in an emotional post on Thursday, April 4, that she was “most likely experiencing a miscarriage.”

“I always promised myself that if I were to get pregnant again, I would share the news with you guys pretty early, even if that means suffering a public loss,” she wrote on Instagram.

“The embryo has a heartbeat, but it isn’t strong, and the baby isn’t growing very much,” she explained. “So we wait — and this is hard. So much uncertainty… but the chances are very, very small that this is a viable pregnancy. I have complete confidence that my family and I will get through this, even if the journey is difficult.”

I want to share with you that I am most likely experiencing a miscarriage. I always promised myself that if I were to get pregnant again, I would share the news with you guys pretty early, even if that means suffering a public loss. I have always been so open with you all about my family, fitness, pregnancies...and I don’t want to keep this from you, just because it isn’t as positive and shiny as the rest. I think it’s important to show the truth...because my job is to help people by being real and open. Furthermore, I have no shame or embarrassment with this experience. I want to be a part of the effort to normalize miscarriage and remove the stigma from it. There is so much secrecy during the first trimester. This works for some, but I personally find it to be exhausting. I’m nauseous, tired, my body is changing. And I have to pretend that everything is just fine—and it truly isn’t. I don’t want to have to pretend anymore. I hope you understand. So, this is what is going on now: the embryo has a heartbeat, but it isn’t strong, and the baby isn’t growing very much. So we wait—and this is hard. So much uncertainty...but the chances are very, very small that this is a viable pregnancy. I have complete confidence that my family and I will get through this, even if the journey is difficult. I am so blessed with my amazing doctor, my dear friends, and my loving family...My husband and my four very healthy babies help me keep it together and have the perspective of how truly beautiful life is, even when it occasionally seems ugly. The luck and gratitude I feel that I am my babies’ mommy, is wonderfully overwhelming and comforting. In your comments, please be kind. I’m feeling a bit fragile and I need support. I’m hoping, that by sharing this, I can contribute to raising awareness about this sensitive topic.
The only time we could have a little birthday celebration today for daddy’s birthday today was to visit him at work @jimmyfallon ! So we made a party in his dressing room 😂! Thank you @shumcake for the yummy cake...and for giving us superpowers 🦸🏻‍♂️🦸🏻‍♀️🦹🏼‍♀️🦸🏼‍♂️🦸🏼‍♂️🦸🏼‍♂️
We missed him 💛
Spring break!
I don’t remember what time exactly I met you, but it was around now, 8 years ago 💜
Mommy is happy tired...I know we have been using “self-care” a lot recently. It’s so important....especially when we feel so stretched thin as parents. One of my favorite ways to give back to myself is focusing on my health. If I feel good, I’m capable of such patience and happiness. I’m a better mom, partner, friend, human. We all know that I am a big advocate of exercise and healthy eating. I’ve also been learning so much about skin care. I hope you listened to @dermatologyandlasergroup on @mombrain this week. Dr. Akhavan is amazing...especially for a mama who is breastfeeding and still interested in having another kid. I love his versatility and his ability to take care of my skin in a way that feels safe for my body and my babies—without crazy chemicals that could be harmful. I hope you enjoy the podcast. The link is in my bio 💛
I had such a wonderful time at the SAG awards...but nothing can compete with this 🥰
This dress ❤️ @carmenmarcvalvo
I found another Baldwin boy...and this time it’s not one I’ve made 🤗 @thebillybaldwin
I brought them all up to SNL to see daddy before work....I wanted a photo, this was the best I got 😂🤪! Don’t even ask about the doll Carmen is holding 😭 (they have no idea what it is....it will magically disappear overnight 🤗)
It’s exercises like these that I use to define my legs. Inner thigh and quad. Knees are bent in the first exercise and you are activating the inner thighs as you squeeze them together. I show three different options in this vid...so watch all the way through. VERY IMPORTANT to pull the knee cap into the quad (thigh) as you do the second exercise (where you straighten the legs). This will beautifully define your upper leg. 10 reps of each. 3 sets 💛. I’ll put a little tutorial in my stories #letsmove2019 (before you ask: my sweater is @gap (40% off 💫) and my pants are @lululemon high rise wunder under in luxtreme)
I’m teaching tomorrow @mergenewyork ! Sign up in link in my bio! In light of Carmen’s video yesterday, I am super nostalgic of all the workouts I’ve done with her during her 5 years...remember baby Carmen yoga 😭🥰??

In an appearance on the Today show on Tuesday, Hilaria defended her decision to publicly reveal her news, insisting it would be “harder to do it silently.”

“You’re definitely not supposed to say anything before 12 weeks,” she said. “Some of that is because people are superstitious or that’s how they feel they’re gonna be stronger. A lot of it, for other people, is from fear. I don’t think that we have to live with such fear.”

The Living Clearly Method author, who married the Saturday Night Live actor, 61, in 2012, added, “For me, personally, it would be harder to do it silently. … Secrets are only scary when they’re secrets. Once you let the secret out, it’s not so scary anymore.”

Hilaria told Hoda Kotb and Savannah Guthrie that as a parent she needs to “accept the good and the bad.”

“It’s not just all diapers, blankets and hairbows,” she said. “We have to open our hearts and realize that there’s gonna be hard moments, too.”
