Alec Baldwin's Wife Hits Back at Troll Who Called Her 'Annoying' for a Possible Miscarriage Post
Hilaria Baldwin swiftly dealt with a troll after she posted an update on her pregnancy to create awareness around the topic of miscarriage.
On Thursday, the former yoga instructor posted an image of herself wearing only underwear with a hand over her tummy and a lengthy caption about her pregnancy because she thinks “it's important to show the truth.”

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. 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. 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...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. 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.
“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,” Hilaria wrote.
Hilaria and Alec Baldwin got married in 2012, and have since brought 4 beautiful children into the world, but fear this pregnancy won’t result in a fifth. The embryo shows little growth and the heartbeat is not strong, giving a slim chance at being a viable pregnancy.
“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,” Hilaria continued.
Going through the first trimester of pregnancy has been hard on Hilaria who constantly feels nauseous and exhausted and feels grateful to have a great support system as she added:
“I am so blessed with my amazing doctor, my dear friends, and my loving family...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 mother of four doesn’t “want to have to pretend anymore” and asked that people “be kind” when commenting, but one Instagram user couldn’t help but dish out negativity.
Seconds later she followed up with a longer reply. “I would suggest that you go through and read even just a handful of comments from people who have experienced the same thing. And maybe your heart and compassion will grow,” Hilaria added.
On her Instagram Story Hilaria thanked everyone for their messages of support and added that “this is why I wanted to share.”
She later updated that she could use a break from the paparazzi and said, “I would like some physical space from being chased with cameras right now.”
However, she promised to keep posting pictures on her Instagram account. About a year ago, Hilaria posted images of all four her pregnancies as many “have asked for a belly comparison.”
In each of the photos she posed in her underwear in front of a full-sized mirror, so the baby bumps were clearly visible.
It resulted not only in a beautiful trip down memory lane but reminded of how every experience is different. Not just with pregnancies, but with everything that happens to us in life.
