Actor Alec Baldwin and his wife Hilaria took to Instagram today to announce some very exciting news. The couple is expecting their fifth child together!
The announcement comes just a few months after they shared Hilaria had suffered a miscarriage. On April 4, Hilaria posted the sad news to her Instagram page, sharing, “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.”
This time around, the couple also chose to share the news early. In the caption of an ultrasound video, Hilaria said, “We want to share this news as we are excited and don’t want to hide the pregnancy. These first few months are tough with exhaustion and nausea…and I don’t want to have to pretend that I feel ok.”
Alec and Hilaria currently share four children together, all under the age of six. They have three boys, Romeo Alejandro David, 16 months, Leonardo Ángel Charles, 3, Rafael Thomas, 4, and one daughter, Carmen Gabriela, 6. We wish the Baldwin family love and health throughout this pregnancy.
