Hilaria Baldwin has revealed on social media that she’s pregnant but 'most likely experiencing a miscarriage’.
The mum-of-four, who’s married to actor Alec Baldwin, revealed that she’s currently expecting another little one but her pregnancy will likely end in miscarriage.
Alongside a picture of her bump, she wrote: ‘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.’
She continued to explain that she wants to be as transparent as possible with her fans and help break the stigma surrounding miscarriage.
‘There is so much secrecy during the first trimester. This works for some, but I personally find it to be exhausting’ she continued.
‘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.’
Explaining exactly what her situation is, Hilaria – who welcomed her fourth child last May – revealed that the embryo has a heartbeat but is not strong and it isn’t growing much.
‘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’, she wrote.
‘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.
‘I’m hoping, that by sharing this, I can contribute to raising awareness about this sensitive topic.’
