Hilaria Baldwin lost her baby at 4 months gestation, the second miscarriage this year, the celebrity yoga instructor shared recently.
“We are very sad to share that today we learned that our baby passed away at 4 months,” Baldwin, who is spouse to actor Alec Baldwin, stated in a video post. “We also want you to know that even though we are not ok right now, we will be.”
In the video which also features her daughter, Carmen, hugging and kissing her mom on the cheek, Hilaria thanks her sweet girl for the love and empathy.
Just this past April before getting pregnant again, Hilaria opened up about having just experienced a miscarriage.
“I have no shame or embarrassment with this experience,” Baldwin wrote in that Instagram post. “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.”
Baldwin has four children with actor Alec Baldwin: their daughter and three boys. She had shared a video in October of the couple revealing to their children that the new baby was a girl.
“I told [Carmen] that this baby isn’t going to come after all…but we will try very hard to give her a little sister another time,” Baldwin wrote.
Hilaria Baldwin is expecting her fifth child with her husband Alec Baldwin.
This time, the celebrity yoga instructor chose to share the news when she was barely one month along. Traditional wisdom and advice from doctors say moms-to-be should wait until three months or until the baby’s heartbeat can be heard before announcing the news.
By that time, the risk of miscarriage false tremendously.
“When you’ve had so many babies, 6 minutes pregnant = looking like 6 months pregnant,” the yoga instructor joked about her tiny protruding belly while announcing the pregnancy.
“People poke around and try to find out what is going on,” she said. “When you simply share what is happening, you take the story into your own hands and they tend to leave you alone more. Secrets are only interesting when they are secrets. Reports of my belly growing or my appearance changing spark rumors. That brings attention.”
She continued, “Me coming out and saying what is going on gets the news out there … then they move on to the next story. It’s been something I’ve learned over the past decade … this is one of the reasons I’m so active on social media. The news can take images for free from my page rather than paying a paparazzi to come follow me.”
She and Alec marreid in 2012 and started a family right away in 2013 with the birth of their oldest daughter, Carmen Gabriela, followed by son Rafael Thomas, another son Leonardo Angel Charles in 2016, and 1-year-old son Romeo Alejandro David, born last year.
Alec has a 23-year old daughter named Ireland from his first marriage to actress Kim Basinger.
In June, Hilaria told People, “Why not keep going? They’re my favorite things in the world so why not? I never expected to have a big family but since we signed on to it, at this point, why not? Why not keep going?”
The supermama and celebrity yoga instructor gave PeopleMagazine an exclusive interview which also included a maternity shoot featuring her three children: 4-year old Carmen, 2-year old Rafael, 19-month old Leonardo.
In the interview, Baldwin, whose husband is actor-director Alec Baldwin, shares what has enabled her to balance so many little kids, her work and busy life.

“We make it fun. We don’t have an agenda,” the 34-year old revealed. “The moment when I try to make my kids line up, which I will try sometimes, it never works out. Just playing, capturing them in their element. It’s more about creating a relaxed environment.”
She talked about nesting and recycling and upcycling.
“It’s my third boy in less than three years so there wasn’t a lot to do,” she said. “Hand-me-downs from my other children. I’m recycling the crib from before so it was a very easy thing.”
To celebrate entering her third trimester Hilaria Baldwin took to her social media and gave her followers a bump update. And 4-year-old daughter Carmen helped mark the occasion adorning her mother with some stickers.
The creative kiddo is seen in the picture placing heart-shaped stickers in fun colors and patterns along Hilaria’s bump while the expectant mama is taking a mirror selfie wearing just a black bra and underwear.
“Hello, 3rd trimester! Carmen is decorating her baby brother.” Hilaria says. “Every single time I do this, I can’t believe the elasticity of the human body.” She goes on to admit, “It’s hard, and I get tired (especially with three on the outside), but I feel so lucky to have experienced this in my life. I always tell people that their bodies are capable of so much-and given the right care and fuel, you can really feel good and strong from the inside out.”
Two of our Bellyitch alums were featured on The Dr. Oz Show this week talking healthy eating and snacking.
The Chew co-host alum Daphne Oz and celebrity yoga instructor and author Hilaria Baldwin shares tips and suggestions and recipes. Daphne is expecting her third child with husband JohnJovanovic.
On the show which took place this Wednesday, September 2y, Baldwin discussed how she switched up the family diet to accommodate her husband Alec Baldwin’s “Pre-Diabetes” diagnosis.
I live in a family of pre-Diabetic so I could relate. Watch:
Also, I’ve been a fan of Mediterranean snacking on dried fruit, nuts, figs, seeds and grains lately so I’m definitely going to be making the healthy almond butter snacks that Daphne, whose written several best-selling cook books, featured on this week’s show!

“I took this yesterday when Leonardo was about 24 hours old,” Hilaria, who is married to Alec Baldwin, wrote alongside the snap. “I did the same thing right after Rafael was born. It always makes me a bit nervous to do something like this, but I feel that in the age of such strong body shaming, I want to do all that I can to normalize a real body and promote healthy self esteem.”

“Many of you know that I love to show the process of life’s experiences on the body and I am a firm believer in how a good diet and the right balance of exercise make us happy, healthy and strong,” Baldwin added. “So from here on, I want to dedicate the majority of my #366daysoflivingclearly #hilarialcm daily posts to getting back in shape and I invite you to do it with me.”
It’s all in the vein of keeping it real and being authentic and showing the other side of the glossy post-baby magazines! Bravo!
Third-time mom-to-be Hilaria Baldwin covers Fit Pregnancy magazine’s August issue.
Inside the covers of the magazine, the celebrity fitness trainer and yoga instructor poses with her two children with veteran actor, 1-year old Rafael Thomas and almost 3-year old Carmen Gabriela.
Baldwin revealed the cover on her Instagram page this week, Thursday, July 14.
“I’m so excited to share the August cover of @fitpregnancy with you! There’s nothing better than bringing my two (soon to be three!) babies to work with me.” she captioned the photo. “I hope you enjoy this look into my crazy life and some pregnancy, fitness and parenting tips. As always, I’m so grateful to you all for joining me on this journey #366daysoflivingclearly #HilariaLCM”
Among the various topics covered in the inside story, Hilaria talks about not having her body to herself due to back to back pregnancies she and Alec planned because he was advanced age 58. She was in her late 20s when they married.
“Between three pregnancies and breastfeeding, I’ve not had my body to myself in years” the Instagram star revealed. “It’s easy to find that overwhelming. But as much as pregnancy brings aches, pains, sleeplessness, and all kinds of very uncomfortable things, there’s something so special about the fact that you can create life. I look at Carmen, and I think, ‘I made you.’ I mean, my husband had something to do with it too, but the incubation, the growing, the delivery—that’s my job, and it’s incredible.”
If you are expecting, just having a baby or balancing a few tiny ones and wondering how you can sneak in some exercise, you should certainly follow Hilaria Baldwin on Instagram. She uses her feed to share adorable photos of her children, snippets of her cool life and lots of quick exercise videos.
The celebrity fitness instructor, who is famously married to actor Alec Baldwin, is also great about deflecting and ignoring all of the “hate comments” she gets periodically.
” …Lets begin with your words: “shameless” “perfectly puckered” “pretend to be perfect” “not real”. I am sorry I don’t have any “warts” now, as you told me if I showed them I’d be “cooler”…I have never done a cosmetic procedure and I rarely wear makeup. So what is wrong with my pictures? I am just me. I take pics in all sorts of places….At the laundromat, right before bed, exercising, tired, pregnant, makeup free… I took pics throughout my pregnancy with Rafa and a day after he was born. No filter, no retouching…because I want to show real. And here I am playing with my little girl–no makeup other than a little mascara. I was having a perfectly fun, innocent time. Can’t we all just support each other? We may never meet and you can have any opinion of me you want, but I find that when we project negativity, we miss out. I know I open myself up to all sorts of body shaming when I post like this. So why do I do it? Because I WANT TO BE REAL. These are REAL moments of my life, and regardless of how I look, I am allowed to share them. I don’t want to change myself in order to try to please others. Then I would not be me. I have accepted myself with all my imperfections and weird eccentricities. And I am enjoying my life–which is ultimately what it’s all about, no?”
And now, here is a few of our favorite shares from her:
Another World Breastfeeding Week is drawing to a close and as committed and longtime supporters of breastfeeding, we would remiss, as a blog community, if we didn’t dedicate a few posts to celebrate nature’s nourishment source for new life. Better late than never, right?
And to start, we are shouting out celebrity fitness pro and our two-time Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum Hilaria Baldwin for sharing a tender nursing moment with her new son to her followers on Instagram yesterday.
The yoga fanatic, who is married to veteran actor Alec Baldwin, captioned this sweet photo:
Rafa’s favorite spot ?. There is no one right way to feed our babies, but this week marks #nationalbreastfeedingweek and I would like to extend my support to mothers who have taken this path ?. In the end, regardless of our methods, #AllMommiesUnite and whatever way we love and nurture our children is beautiful, perfect and inspiring ❤️
As we’ve always advocated, it is important for influential people in the public eye to encourage new mothers, who do not face too many physical or psychological impediments or difficulty, to breastfeed and to do it as long as possible. What better way than to open up with their own special moments with their little ones. Very nice!
Earlier this week, we mentioned seeing Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi on the Coco and Ice talk show and was also heartwarmed to hear that she is still nursing her almost one year old daughter Giovanna Marie LaValle! sweet!
