Hilaria Baldwin has tragically suffered her second miscarriage, just 7 months after her first.
Hilaria, who shares 4 children with husband, Alec Baldwin, was expecting a baby girl but received the damning news at her latest scan. The yoga instructor shared the news on her Instagram account with a moving video and herself and her daughter, Carmen, as she explained to the young child that her sibling would never be coming home.

And, despite their twenty-six-year age gap, the couple couldn’t be more in love.
Earlier this year, Alec dedicated an Instagram post on their anniversary and explained how they first crossed paths.
“8 years ago, I wandered into Pure Food and Wine on Irving Place, on an unseasonably warm February evening,” he wrote. “My friend, @bocartist and I sat down (outside!) and as I turned to my left I saw a woman who would change my life. Entirely.”
Alec couldn’t help himself, and he had to go over and talk to her.
And Hilaria told The New York Times that Alec’s opening line was actually pretty smooth. “I was standing near the door with my friends when he walked up and took my hand and said, ‘I must know you,’” she recalled. “‘You must know me?'” she replied, after which “he gave me his card.”
When talking about the early days of their relationship with Beach magazine, Hilaria recalled how it took Alec 6 whole weeks to kiss her.
“He shook my hands for 6 weeks. We’d have the most romantic dinner date, and afterward, he’d drop me off at my house and shake my hand… My girlfriends would call me and say, ‘Anything yet?’ and I’d say, ‘Nope, nope, nope.’ Then they’d say, ‘Maybe he just wants to be friends.'”
Despite their slow start, the rest of their relationship began to move very quickly.
5 months into dating, the pair got their first apartment together, and the talk of marriage quickly followed.
The Baldwins exchanged their vows at New York City’s St. Patrick’s Old Cathedral in 2012, and their star-studded guest list included the likes of Tina Fey, Woody Allen and Alec’s brothers Stephen and Billy Baldwin.
Hilaria gave birth to their first baby daughter, Carmen Gabriela Baldwin, on August 23, 2013. And, less than two years later, on June 17, 2015, their son Rafael Thomas Baldwin was born.
Leonardo Ángel Charles Baldwin followed on September 12, 2016, and, most recently, their third son Romeo Alejandro David Baldwin was born on May 17, 2018.
Hilaria took to Instagram to share her love for her stepdaughter.
“I rarely address being a stepmom, but it is part of our family. I always want to deal with it with such care… I wanted to make sure I did right by the family I was stepping into when I married Alec.” She wrote, “I love my stepdaughter as much as I love my biological children and I become a mommy lioness when I see comments that insinuate otherwise.”
In April this year, Hilaria announced that, after falling pregnant with their fifth child, she had suffered a miscarriage.
Sharing of a photo of herself stood cradling her stomach in her underwear, Hilaria wrote,
“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.”
And she explained that, despite the embryo having a heartbeat, it wasn’t strong enough to survive.
“I want to be a part of the effort to normalize miscarriage and remove the stigma from it.” She explained in her post, “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.”
So, when Hilaria fell pregnant again in September, just 5 months after their devastating loss, the excitement was in the air once more. She shared a photo of her scan, writing:
“Tiny person is growing wonderfully.”
The expectant-mom shared regular updates on her Instagram account, and even celebrated getting through her first trimester, writing,
“Because this baby deserves belly pics too! GUYS!!!! I made it through my first trimester!!!!”
For the second time in just 7 months, Hilaria has suffered another miscarriage. She was just 4 months along.
She posted a video of herself laid in bed being comforted by her daughter, Carmen.
And, visibly in tears, her mom replies:
“I don’t know. We’re going to try really hard.”
And snuggles up to her, giving her a soft kiss on the cheek. A visibly emotional Hilaria then says:
“Thank you for saying you’re sorry. Mommy’s sad.”
Captioning her post, Hilaria wrote:
“We are very sad to share that today we learned that our baby passed away at 4 months.” She explained how the video was filmed for Alec, but it was decided to be the best way to share the news with her 666K followers, too.
“I told Carmen and took this so I could send it to Alec. I guess this is a good way to share it with you too.”
Because they still have their 4 beautiful children.
“We also want you to know that even though we are not ok right now, we will be. We are so lucky with our 4 healthy babies—and we will never lose sight of this.”
But they aren’t the only high-profile family to suffer such a devastating loss – Pretty Little Liars star, Shay Mitchell, recently shared her own heartbreaking news.
