The Baldwin family will grow. As confirmed by People last March, Hilaria Baldwin, Alec Baldwin’s wife is expecting their seventh child. A happy event which contrasts with the manslaughter in which the actor is implicated, after having killed the director of photography Halyna Hutchins with a stray bullet, on the set of the film Rust, in October 2021. Far from the interrogations and from the investigation, the 64-year-old star learned the sex of her future child, revealed on Instagram this Monday, May 9.
In a publication posted on the social network on May 9, Hilaria Baldwin revealed that she was pregnant with a baby girl. The couple appeared for the occasion in a video surrounded by their six children: Carmen Gabriela, Rafael Thomas, Leonardo Ángel Charles, Romeo Alejandro David, Eduardo Pau Lucas and María Lucía Victoria. In a message accompanying the publication, Hilaria expressed her joy and wondered about the future of her youngest child: “It has always been both fun and meaningful for me to find out the gender of my baby, but, As I grow and learn, I want to do it a little differently this time. What will make our baby a loving, whole person? What matters? [.. .] Maybe nothing we can define.”, explains the businesswoman.
The meaningful silence of Hilaria Baldwin
A revelation all the more symbolic that Hilaria Baldwin did not want to leak it. The mother of the family knew the sex of the baby as early as April and said she did not want to make the information public. The reason for this silence could not be more understandable, since the wife of Alec Baldwin suffered a miscarriage in 2019: “I lost a baby at 4 months in 2019 (some of you will remember I think about her every day […]”, she explained, indicating that she would only allow herself to reveal the sex of her child after she passed the stage at which the tragedy had taken place. Another reason given is respect for gender identity, which is close to the heart of the 38-year-old young woman, sensitive to discrimination against LGBTQI + communities. The video posted on his Instagram account is therefore more than a simple announcement.
