Alec Baldwin's wife Hilaria is pregnant but says she's 'most likely experiencing a miscarriage'
The former TV star, who already has four children with her actor husband, said she wanted to talk about the issue to remove the stigma surrounding it
Alec Baldwin's wife Hilaria completely left her fans and followers shocked when she revealed the news of her pregnancy on Instagram and Twitter alongside sharing a selfie of her in a bra and underwear. The former TV star who already has four children with her actor husband, was quite grave during her social media announcement.
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."
The mother of four said she’s sharing the heartbreaking news about her possible miscarriage as an effort to normalize the medical phenomenon and remove the stigma around it. She wrote, "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."
Hilaria continued the bittersweet announcement with the words, "I think it’s important to show the truth...because my job is to help people by being real and open. Furthermore, I have no shame or embarrassment with this experience.”
The yoga instructor further added: “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.”
Later, she went into the full details of her unborn baby to her numerous fans on the social media platforms. She said: “So, this is what is going on now: the embryo has a heartbeat, but it isn’t strong, and the baby isn’t growing very much. So we wait — and this is hard."
"So much uncertainty...but the chances are very, very small that this is a viable pregnancy. I have complete confidence that my family and I will get through this, even if the journey is difficult. I am so blessed with my amazing doctor, my dear friends, and my loving family..."
The TV personality even took out time to shower praises on her husband Alec and her kids, saying: "My husband and my four very healthy babies help me keep it together and have the perspective of how truly beautiful life is, even when it occasionally seems ugly. The luck and gratitude I feel that I am my babies' mommy, is wonderfully overwhelming and comforting."
Subtly asking trolls to keep away, Hilaria concluded her Instagram announcement with the words, "In your comments, please be kind. I’m feeling a bit fragile and I need support. I’m hoping, that by sharing this, I can contribute to raising awareness about this sensitive topic.”
