Hilaria Baldwin recently announced on her personal Instagram account that she is expecting a seventh child with her husband Alec Baldwin. The 38-year-old yoga instructor shared the wonderful news with excitement and glee to her nearly one million followers.
She also revealed that she is due to give birth some time around fall. This news is a definite breath of fresh air for the Baldwin family that’s still fresh off the heels of a prop-mishandling controversy on the set of Alec’s movie Rust which took the life of the film’s cinematographer Halyna Hutchins. While investigations into the incident are still ongoing, the Baldwin family is looking forward with hope and optimism.
Staying Positive Despite Recent Setbacks
Hilaria wrote in the Instagram caption:
“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. We were pretty sure our family was complete, and we’re beyond happy with this surprise. I’m sharing with you the moment we told the kids—as you can see, they are super excited! Our new baby is a very bright spot in our lives. A blessing and a gift during such uncertain times. I’ve missed you during my break from social media…I’m back and looking forward to continuing with you this wild journey that we call “life.” Our love to you and your loved ones.”
It’s clear from her caption that the tragedy that took place on the set of Rust is still continuing to plague the family. It’s also worth noting that Hilaria suffered a tragic miscarriage and pregnancy loss back in 2019.
Nevertheless, the Baldwins seem like they’re looking forward to expanding their already large family even more this coming fall.
A Welcome Addition
In an exclusive interview with People magazine, the couple opened up about how excited they are to be bringing a new child into this world. She said:
“One of the most beautiful things my children have experienced with a big family is how the heart can grow with every new sibling,”
The couple currently has six children – two daughters and four sons. Carmen Gabriela, 8, is the eldest of the bunch, while her little sister Maria Lucia Victoria is the youngest at 13-months-old. Their brothers are Rafael Thomas, 6, Leonardo Angel Charles, 5, Romeo Alejandro David, 3, and Eduardo Pao Lucas, 18 months.
Their youngest daughter, Maria Lucia Victoria, was born via a surrogate back in September 2020. This happened a few months after Hilaria gave birth to their son Eduardo, more affectionately known as Edu in the household.
After Maria Lucia Victoria’s birth, the couple talked about how all the baby’s big brothers and sisters were all excited at the prospect of having a new sibling.
Keeping Up with the Baldwins
Aside from the children he has with Hilaria, Alec is also a father to Ireland Baldwin, a daughter he shares with ex-wife Kim Basinger. The 30 Rock alum has been leading a relatively quiet life.
