Alec Baldwin's wife Hilaria Baldwin is proving to be one cool mom! Not only did she bare her belly two days after giving birth, she's showing it again -- this time to prove she did not have a C-section.

Apparently her long stay in the hospital had lots of people wondering whether Hilaria had a cesarean. So, what better way to lay these rumors to rest than to show her belly again, this time from the front, to show there's no scar?

1) I apologize for the weird post and I want to say I am grateful for all the concern I have read on my photo comments. I know they are coming from a good place. 2) This is for those of you who are getting into some pretty serious arguments with each other about if I had a c section or not...this should clear it up: as you can see from this pic, I did not have a c section. 3) The other question has been speculation as to why I stayed in the hospital a few days. Rafael came a little early (nothing extreme) so we just wanted to stay an extra night and make sure all is ok. Due dates are estimates and he came out a healthy weight. I'm actually lucky because given another few weeks, he would have been HUGE! 4) We are overjoyed that we have a healthy little boy and also that I am feeling well. I can never repay my doctor and the nurses who cared for Rafa and me. I'm eternally grateful. �

I, personally, find it annoying that people were even discussing whether Hilaria did or didn't have a C-section. Why does that matter? To me, it just taints the otherwise joyous news of that she's given birth. It's like someone announcing "I got into college!" and someone responding with "Congratulations ... but did you get in on your own, or did someone pull some strings for you?"

As a mom who had an emergency cesarean, I can tell you that I certainly felt bad I didn't give birth "on my own." I felt like I'd failed my first test of motherhood, by not being strong enough to push my baby out.

Of course, I know C-sections just gotta happen sometime, and there's no shame in them, but still, that twinge of disappointment still lingers -- and it flares up whenever anyone is insensitive enough to inquire, "did you give birth naturally or get a C-section?" To this, I am always tempted to say, "Who gives a flying ef how my baby arrived as long as she did and all is well?"

So, I admire how Hilaria promptly but an end to this discussion with this photo, which says in so many words, "Here you go, see? No C-section. The end." And take this as a lesson to stop asking how babies arrive. It doesn't matter. Really.

How do you feel about people asking if you had a C-section?
