Hilaria Baldwin Announces That She's Pregnant but Likely Suffering a Miscarriage

Hilaria Baldwin

Yesterday was a brave, yet sad day for Alec Baldwin's wife, Hilaria Baldwin. She took to her Instagram to announce that she's expecting the couple's fifth child together, which should've been the happiest of news. She has the tiniest hint of a baby bump in the photo, but it's her caption that has everyone talking. 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. 


Hilaria then went on to add:

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. 
She went on to explain that while the embryo does have a heartbeat, it isn't strong, so the odds are not good for this being a viable pregnancy.

We can't even imagine how difficult it must have been for her to share this personal news with the world, especially when her family is likely about to experience a devastating loss. But at the same time, we commend her for being so open and honest, as there are likely so many other women who have gone through or are going through the same thing who might take comfort in knowing they are not alone.

Our thoughts will be with Hilaria during this difficult time. For more details on what is happening, check out Entertainment Tonight's report.
