Alec and Hilaria Baldwin Face Backlash from Fans over their Newborn Daughter’s Name

Hilaria Baldwin is an American yoga instructor, podcaster, entrepreneur, and author. She is one of the co-founders of the New York-based yoga studio chain called Yoga Vida.

The 38-year-old married Baldwin in 2012, and the two have been happily married ever since.

Last week, the couple announced the birth of their seventh child, a baby girl – Ilaria Catalina Irena Baldwin.

“She’s here! We are so excited to introduce you to our tiny dream come true, Ilaria Catalina Irena – 9-22-22, 6lbs 13oz.”

“Her Baldwinito siblings are spending the day bonding and welcoming her into our home.”

“Much love to you all. We are so happy to celebrate this wonderful news with you,” Hilaria captioned her heartwarming Instagram reel.

The fitness enthusiast already shared six kids – Carmen, 9, Rafael, 7, Leonardo, 5, Romeo, 4, Eduardo, 23 months, and Lucia, 18 months, with her celebrity husband, Alec Baldwin.

In March 2022, the Baldwins announced that they were expecting their seventh child together,

“After many ups and downs over the past few years, we have an exciting up and a huge surprise: another Baldwinito is coming this fall,” Hilaria wrote on her Instagram“We were pretty sure our family was complete, and we’re beyond happy with this surprise.”

“Our new baby is a very bright spot in our lives. A blessing and a gift.”

Later, the SNL alum defended their decision to want a big family with many children.

“People ask why; this is why. Being a parent is the ultimate journey,” he wrote alongside the video of his youngest daughter on Instagram.

According to Page Six, in April 2022, the couple joked about choosing an ‘all-American’ name for their newborn baby girl.

“Alec proposed the monikers ‘Babe Ruth or Chase Manhattan’ at the time. The pair’s joke referenced the backlash Hilaria faced in late 2020 when she was accused of cultural appropriation after claiming to be from Spain,”

Earlier this month, Hilaria shared a post on her Instagram and called out her haters for their mean comments on her big family.

“7th baby: when people ask or comment, we often go to silly and very self-deprecating jokes on my part.” She captioned her photos on the social media platform while flaunting her big baby bump.

“I love to laugh at myself—so it’s all good…keeps me sane. All jokes aside, however, I am grateful for this experience. I know too well the joys, losses, beauty, and heartache motherhood brings.”

Following the couple’s announcement of their daughter’s birth and name reveal on the internet, many people took to Twitter and criticized Hilaria, once again, for faking her Spanish identity.

“Alec and Hilaria Baldwin have named their seventh child Ilaria. Which is kind of ilarious,” a user tweeted.

“Fake Spanish name from Boston-born mom,” said another.

“Hilaria & Alec Baldwin had their 7th child. Not one American name, not even a middle name,” a third user wrote.

“Alec Baldwin’s wife faking being Spanish is so crazy. Changing her name from Hillary to Hilaria, naming all 7 of their kids with those roots, pretending to forget the english word for ‘cucumber,’ faking an accent. She should’ve changed her name to hilarious instead,” someone else said.

    1. How dare you make logical sense to a bunch of people that get offended by everything. LOL I fully agree with you, people need to focus on themselves and leave them alone. It’s their choice to make no one else’s. Thank you for making the comment.

  2. Who cares what they named any of their kids. People are so judgmental these days. How many other people have done it? Just because she’s married to a Baldwin makes her a target. Grow up people. Will I be judged because I’m German and gave my son a Scottish name.

  3. Congratulations on your new blessing! I don’t understand why some humans have the need to be negative. It hurts so much to know there are people that can be mean. I wish happiness on the parents of seven, and wish happiness on everyone who reads my words. God bless you all!

  4. Why does this have to even be said WHO CARES WHY DO PEOPLE HAVE TO TALK BAD ABOUT OTHERS ARE YOU ALL JUST THAT JEALOUS leave them alone who cares what she faked or why she changed names who cares!

  5. Why hasn’t he been charged with murder yet? Instead of doing time he is Jack rabbiting his spouse! Wonder what the dead woman had on him?

  6. And. Your point is? They have 7 kids. Plus a LOT of help. Why not fill your home with babies?
    People, there’s more to life than bashing someone for their choices. Get over yourself.
