Hilaria and Alec Baldwin’s parenting style is never too far away from controversy — but fans have had one question on their minds…
Will there be any more “Baldwinitos”?
Read on to find out!
Alec and Hilaria first met back in 2011.
The pair began dating and after just 5 months they moved in with each other.
Then, just a year later, the pair got married…
The Baldwins exchanged their vows at New York City’s St. Patrick’s Old Cathedral in 2012.
Since then, the pair have gone on to grow their family and succeed in their careers.
But this past year, things have been not quite so great for the Baldwins…
It began when Alec Baldwin was given a “prop” gun that mistakenly contained live rounds.
The sixty-three-year-old was using a gun prop on the set of the American Western film, Rust, when he fired a round of blanks that killed cinematographer, Halyna Hutchins, as well as wounded the director of the film, Joel Souza.
Souza was immediately rushed to hospital where he received treatment for his injuries.
He was taken to Christus St Vincent Regional Medical Center for further examinations.
Hutchins was taken to the University of New Mexico Hospital but died when she got there.
The forty-two-year-old was transported to the location via helicopter but before she could undergo life-saving treatment, she succumbed to her injuries.
Rust was being filmed at the Bonanza Creek ranch just outside of Santa Fe when the incident occurred on October 21.
Santa Fe police deputies were called to the scene after Baldwin had misfired the prop during a scene.
Since then, Baldwin has gone through a lot of torment over the incident.
Many called out the actor for his actions, whether they were an accident or not.
The events of that day were truly tragic.
And it has been an extremely difficult few months for all involved in the heartbreaking situation.
But Alec and Hilaria Baldwin have found a “bright spot” after “many ups and downs over the past few years.”
Welcoming their 7th child together.
Hilaria announced the news in a post on Instagram.
And since then, congratulations have been pouring in…
One Instagram user wrote: “Oh my gosh! Congratulations!”
While another gushed: “Awe, can’t wait to see that sweet baby girl.”
Hilaria first took to Instagram to share a video of herself and Alec telling their children that she is pregnant.
Alongside the video, Hilaria wrote: “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!”
“A blessing and a gift during such uncertain times,” she wrote adding that the baby was “a very bright spot in our lives.”
Alec Baldwin also explained why they have so many children.
And everybody loved his explanation.
Alec has 8 children in total, 7 of which are with Hilaria.
Their children include Carmen Gabriela, 8, Rafael Thomas, 6, Ángel Charles, 5, Romeo Alejandro David, 3, and Eduardo Pao Lucas, who is 1.
Alec also has another child with ex-Kim Basinger.
And that’s twenty-six-year-old, Ireland.
And now, he’s had his 8th child, 7th with Hilaria.
But, a lot of people always seem to ask why they have so many children… Well, it seems as though he has given us his answer.
He took to Instagram to share his reasoning.
And to be honest, we get it.
“People comment about how many children we have and ask why,” he wrote.
“This is why,” he continued.
“The thing in this life that matters most to me are these people.” he finished.
And with that, he shared an adorable video of his youngest children.
Hilaria also shared the clip on her Instagram, writing: “Some kids want to be superheroes and royals, my babies want to be puppies… as they are animal super fans.
“They dressed up last night… see again that [Eduardo] always gives [María Lucía] the bottle first? So sweet.”

Baldwin’s wife has further opened up about her husband Alec’s “enemies…”
In the explosive Instagram post, the 38-year old yoga instructor confessed how “wonderful” it was to be by her famous husband’s side.
And its not the first time she’s been in the news…
As earlier this year, it was reported by the Daily Mail that she “came under fire for lying about her Spanish heritage…”
As in December 2020 a viral Twitter post “raised questions” about the authenticity of her claims.
Apparently, she had “claimed to be born in Mallorca, Spain, only moving to the United States for college.”
However, reports later uncovered that she was born Hilary Thomas and “was actually from Boston.”
Hilaria then tried to come out clean when she posted an Instagram video…
And according to reports, she confessed to being a “white girl” from a “white family” who had grown up in the United States.
Since then, Hilaria has spoken about the public scrutiny her husband has faced after he shot and killed cinematographer Halyna Hutchins on the sets of his film Rust.
The black and white picture of herself and Alec was accompanied by a lengthy caption, in which she made some interesting claims…
It got everyone talking.
The former author revealed details of her husband’s frustrating “public scrutiny…”
Even mentioning how torturous it was for her behind the scenes as a wife and mother too.
“The darker part is seeing behind the curtain at how some of this ‘business’ can function and the blows and sacrifices that someone in the public eye takes for speaking up for what they believe and for helping others,” she wrote.
And that’s not all…
“To enter your world and become your person has been both a joy and an eye opening experience. How many wonderful moments, meeting incredible people, doing amazing experiences, and building a family. I am forever grateful. Every day,” wrote the former podcaster.
Then the post took a turn.
The star disclosed things that people did not expect…
More than a few eyebrows were raised…
“Enemies of these missions seek to destroy you, in order to delegitimize your voice and purpose,” she said.
She then went on to say that this was a “tactic” used to “slander” Alec and people were aware of it but chose to “stay silent out of fear.”
“This is not a new tactic…it’s as old as history…yet, how easy it is now more than ever to slander people and cherry pick and piece together strands taken out of context, ‘opinions’, or complete fabrications. And how some people believe it or stay silent out of fear,” she continued.
“Alec, how many times we look at each other and say: deep breath, in this together, keep on for the good of what we believe. How many times I’ve experienced people stopping you and thanking you for your philanthropy in the arts, your work with children, fighting for our environment, and yes, we all know: our politics,” she continued.
She then added that people saw how “hard” he fought for what he believed in and even added they were “a good team,” in Spanish.
“Listen to these voices..turn down the volume on the darkness and negativity.”
She also expressed that it hurt her as a wife to see Alec go through those “dark moments,” where she too experienced public backlash.
“I am the one that sees you in your dark moments… the human moments—away from the movie stardom and public figure that people are so quick to elevate or execute.”
“My empathy for your humanity is endless… unfortunately, having experienced the dehumanization myself, (another old tactic to go after the spouse of your enemy)…leads us to the moments when we think: how much more can one body and one mind take before we crumple beneath the psychological torture?” she wrote.
But the drama has since been quieted down since the couple named their 7th child…
On 25 September Hilaria Baldwin gave birth to a baby girl…
Announcing the news of her daughter’s birth in an Instagram post, Hilaria wrote: “She’s here! We are so excited to introduce you to our tiny dream come true.”
As well as announcing her beautiful but quite different name, and yes people couldn’t help but react…
“Fake Spanish name from Boston-born mom,” while a second echoed: “Hilaria & Alec Baldwin had their 7th child. Not one American name, not even a middle name,” one person wrote on Twitter.
“Her blatant trying to be Spanish is really quite irritating, why is it okay? Why does she keep trying? Have they really let it go to their heads that much?’ another added.
The comments kept on pouring in…
“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,” said a fourth.
So what did they name their daughter?
According to UNILad, Hilaria said they had named their daughter Ilaria Catalina Irena…
But they didn’t realize it would cause such a commotion.
Hilaria also opened up about the struggle she’s facing raising her children…
After announcing her seventh child.
It was on Instagram that Hilaria announced her ‘mama guilt’ after posting a photo of herself and her kids in front of a mirror.
The caption on the post mentioned the struggles of raising more than six children.
“Making sure my other babies feel they have mama time too,” she wrote.
She continues: “Bringing baby home is magical, and it’s always a transition that we all feel. I am trying to balance new mom again, with breastfeeding, healing, and hustling to make sure all my children feel that I am there to be the best mama I can be.”
She then ended the post, saying, “Am I right? Def not all the time … Mama guilt? Obviously. Emotions: all over the place. 7th time around, I know this is a process.”
It seems as though Hilaria is doing well raising her other children after posting a photo of her 2 eldest children looking after their youngest sister.
“Grateful for these two, who come in to watch their little sister so I can shower,” she wrote on the post.
But following their new addition, fans have had one question on their minds…
Are there any more babies on the horizon?
Well, now Hilaria has opened up…
“I would say that we’re done, but I said we were done with six. And yeah, I would say hopefully we’re done,” she told the Daily Mail.
“But Alec still has to go and do his part. So if he does not do his part, sometimes things can happen,” Hilaria joked, making a snipping gesture.
Watch this space, we guess!
