Hilaria Baldwin, the adored wife of mega-star, Alec Baldwin, stunned her Instagram and Twitter fans on Thursday, March 4th, when she made a rather tragic statement.
With more than half a million followers, the star announced to fanbase and audience that she believed she was in the process of “experiencing a miscarriage.” Knowing that her news was unexpected by all, including herself, she prefaced her news with reminding her audience that she would always remain transparent with them.
The photo that Hilaria shared featured the mom of four cradling her first trimester bump. She wrote: “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.”
As a public figure, author, and podcaster, Hilaria continued by sharing, “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.”
In an effort to fill the news, she revealed where she was in the process- both physically and emotionally. Hilaria continued, “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.”
The star revealed that even though the journey was difficult, she was grateful to be surrounded by such incredible people. She concluded her news by saying, “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.”
Hilaria also asked commenters to remain kinda as she was “fragile.” Please, pray for Hilaria as she learns to navigate this difficult journey. Pregnancy can be so difficult on it’s own, but especially when it includes such uncertainty. We are praying for you Hilaria!
