Alec and Hilaria Baldwin began dating in 2011 and got married in July 2012. From then on, it was clear to the couple that they wanted to start a large family full of children. And they got down to work. Carmen was his first daughter, born in August 2013. Then Rafael arrived, who will turn six in June , and after him Leonardo, four , and Romeo Alejando, two and a half.
It was then that Hilaria Baldwin said that it was being very difficult for her to get pregnant and that she had suffered two painful miscarriages, one in April 2019 and another in November of the same year, when she was four months old. However, with joy they announced last summer that they were waiting again, and in September 2020 Eduardo Pau Lucas was born. But there has been a surprise at the last minute: five months later another baby has arrived in the Baldwin family.
It was Hilaria herself who has shown the little one in a photo on her Instagram profile, along with the number "7" and a heart. A representative of the couple has confirmed to People magazine the arrival of this new member of the family, whose sex and name are unknown for now.
The incorporation of a new member to the family would be explained if the baby has been adopted or was born through a surrogate. After the series of abortions that Baldwin suffered, the couple may have thought that the birth of Eduardo – from which Hilaria would have become pregnant in late 2019 or early 2020 – was not going to be possible, and that is why they decided to resort to other options in the middle of last year to grow the family. Only then would the times balance.
After the birth of her previous child, Hilaria Baldwin was seen breastfeeding, or showing the before and after of her body during pregnancy and after the arrival of the little one. Something that, at least for the moment, he has not done. In addition, the Baldwins, who usually account for each of their family's additions, had not announced the birth of the baby so far. Curiously, in November Hilaria gave an interview to People where she said that five children seemed a correct number to her. “Right now I think I'm pretty tired. And I feel, with the covid, that it is a bit crazy, "he said. And about the fact of expanding the family he said: “Now, in times of coronavirus, I firmly believe that we are finished.”
In recent weeks, Hilaria Baldwin had announced that she wanted to take a break from social networks, and when she returned she explained that he took that time to reflect. The reason for his departure was a great controversy that revolved around his origins. She had always claimed that she was born in Spain, in particular in Mallorca, but an American journalist inquired into her origins and uncovered that Hilaria was actually Hillary , Hillary Hayworth Thomas, and that she was born and raised in Boston, Massachusetts, to American parents and ancestors ditto. In fact, the journalist brought out American high school classmates and highlighted a life that clearly had not taken place in the Balearic Islands.
At first, the yoga expert explained that it was all a lie concocted by the reporter and a series of failures and misunderstandings. “For those who ask, I will insist on my story, as I have done many times before. I was born in Boston but grew up with my family straddling Massachusetts and Spain. My parents and brother live in Spain and I chose to live here in the US At home we celebrate our two cultures. Alec and I raise our children bilingual, just like I grew up. This is very important to me. I understand that my story is somewhat different, but it is mine and I am proud of it ”, she stated in a publication. However, in the end he ended up apologizing, explaining that he should have been clearer with his story and better defined his "connection between two cultures", but he did not deny his entire story.
