Alec Baldwin’s Wife Reveals She’s ‘Most Likely Experiencing a Miscarriage’ in a Frank Update
Alec Baldwin's wife, Hilaria, has recently taken to her official Instagram account to share with her fans and followers that she might be experiencing a miscarriage.
On Thursday, April 4, 2019, Hilaria posted a photo of herself wearing only underwear with her hand gently placed over her little baby bump, along with a heartbreaking message.
According to the mother-of-four, she wanted to post the picture during this very time of her life in an effort to "normalize miscarriage and remove the stigma from it."
NOTHING TO HIDE
The 35-year-old promised herself to share everything with her legion of followers the next time she was pregnant, even it meant "suffering a public loss."
Hilaria has always been very open regarding her life, including her family, friends, relationships, her love for fitness and pretty much anything that happens on a daily basis, so she didn't want to keep the possible miscarriage hidden away.
“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 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.
THE HEARTBREAKING TRUTH
According to her, the first trimester is exhausting since her body keeps changing and she feels tired and nauseous quite a lot. Plus, having to pretend everything is fine, which she doesn't want to do anymore.
Hilaria was honest and admitted that the heartbeat of the embryo isn't strong and that the baby isn't growing very much, which is why the chances of a successful pregnancy are very low.
Still, the 35-year-old considered herself blessed for having her doctor, friends and family by her side during this difficult time, adding that her husband and children help her see how beautiful life actually is.
A MOTHER'S EXPERIENCE
Last year, around the same time, Hilaria was pregnant with Romeo, her fourth child, who was born on May 17. Not wanting to leave her fans out of the loop, she posted a before and after picture of the pregnancy.

9 months to 12 days postpartum (I took the photo on the right two days ago). Every body is different, but I believe in staying as active as possible. There were so many moments when I didn’t want to work out this pregnancy. Showing up is the most difficult challenge. I had to drag myself out and do even a little. Consistency helped me so much though...because the body wants attention and wants to be moved. So important for your circulation, your health, your happiness, and for your strength. I just started being able to workout yesterday. Slow and steady. Nothing crazy. Each birth is different and your doctor will be able to advise you on when you can begin. When you can, be patient with your body. You have been through so much and created something so precious. Know that day by day, movement by movement, you will regain your strength and feel amazing. #wegotthis2018
In the post, Hilaria highlighted the importance of working out while pregnant, claiming that she did so even though she had to force herself to exercise even a little bit.
