Hilaria Baldwin has opened up about what it’s really like to cater for two babies under the age of one as she jokingly referred to herself as a ‘cow’.
The 37-year-old and her husband Alec Baldwin stunned fans this month when they announced they had welcomed their sixth child Lucia, just six months after Hilaria gave birth to their son Eduardo.
Taking to her Instagram Story on Wednesday, the Mom Brain spoke candidly about breastfeeding.
She wrote: ‘This cow is tired and thirsty. Let me tell you something you might already know: breastfeeding two babies is no joke.’
The mother-of-six added: ‘I’m devouring any liquid I can get my hands on…’
Days before, Hilaria thanked the ‘special angels’ who brought her daughter Lucia into the world, after she suffered a pregnancy loss in 2019.
While the couple has not divulged whether Lucia was welcomed via surrogate or adoption, Hilaria explained that her children ‘craved’ a sister after she suffered a miscarriage on a baby girl two years ago.
The yoga teacher shared an adorable picture of her babies as she wrote: ‘Our hearts are filled with so much gratitude. The Baldwinitos craved so much to have a little sister. Many of you may remember the loss of their sister at 4 months in the end of 2019. There isn’t a day that goes by where we don’t ache for our daughter. When I found out our baby had died, I told our children that their sister was going to come, just not at that time.
‘Nothing will ever replace her, but two wonderful souls have come into our lives, and we are humbled to know them. Our children were brave during our time of tremendous grief—braver than us…and they held out hope. To experience and accept life’s ups and downs is challenging, but a reality that all of us have no choice but to receive and process. I have learned that often our children are wiser than we are and their wisdom has guided us.
‘Our rainbow baby, Edu, is such a blessing—we are overwhelmed by how fortunate we are to have him. We are living each day, bonding, and grateful for all of the very special angels who helped bring Lucía into the world.
‘María Lucía Victoria and Eduardo Pau Lucas: our babies who bring light into our lives—almost like twins, we love you so much.’
In November 2019, the presenter shared the sad news that she had lost her baby, a girl, four months into her pregnancy. Hilaria had previously suffered a miscarriage in April of the same year.
Soon afterwards, she became pregnant with her son Edu, who entered the world in September 2020.
Hilaria and Alec, 62, are also parents to Carmen, seven, Rafael, five, Leonardo, four, and two-year-old Romeo, while Alec is dad to Ireland, 25, from his marriage to Kim Basinger.
The star recently cleared up rumors about her heritage, after accusations that she was faking being Spanish, Hilaria explained that all of her kids had Spanish names because they were named after people in her life.
Hilaria, who was born in Boston but spent time in Spain with her family growing up, added that she is raising her children as bilingual and speaks Spanish to them in their home.
