Hilaria Baldwin recently opened up about experiencing her second miscarriage in just seven months. Baldwin, who has four children with husband Alec Baldwin, shared the difficult news with fans via Instagram earlier this month.
After sharing the news, Baldwin revealed that “all of a sudden I was getting negative comments about my miscarriage.”

Commenters called her an “attention seeker,” “too old,” and “disgusting,” she shared in a recent Instagram story, though she didn’t let the trolls get her down.
“All of a sudden I started getting negative comments…”
“Time to support and stop the shaming of women, simply trying to create family and love.”
“I am part of the majority.”
“Losing a baby at any stage is hitting rock bottom,” Baldwin said. “Rock bottom sucks. But rock bottom is also eye-opening. Because you understand and have experienced true pain. It makes the trolls seem even smaller than they usually are. Because no words they can use can ever compare to what you have lost.”
She may not have been personally affected by the comments, but she didn’t let them go without comment.
“Those of you who bully women who suffer as I have are bringing a cruelty to the world that is so wrong,” Baldwin said. “You are contributing to feelings of shame, fear, insufferable pain. It is for this reason that I have stepped forward and shared as I have. Not for attention, but because it is my life story and I decided to open up.”
She continued that many women stay silent after suffering a miscarriage, but she decided to speak out in the hopes of helping other women who have faced that pain. She encouraged her fans to give “love and support” to anyone who goes through a miscarriage.
Hilaria and Alec recently attended the American Museum of Natural History’s 2019 Museum Gala, revealing that she was feeling “much better.”
“I feel like it’s making the best out of a bad situation because I feel like it’s an important message, that people are not alone,” she told People following the event. “People think [our lives are] all roses and diamonds and all that stuff. I think it’s important to be honest because we’re so much more similar, everybody is, than different.”
When I’m not hanging out with my three-year-old and husband in Brooklyn, I’m busy writing stories for Mamas Uncut and managing PR + Marketing for Magnolia Bakery, based in New York City. On weekends, you can usually find me at a local park or playground pushing my daughter on the swings, “researching” the best almond croissants in Park Slope or launching into impromptu family dance parties at home, the sidewalk or, every once in awhile, a restaurant bathroom. I’m still trying to master the whole parenting thing, but I have learned that copious amounts of coffee, humor and humility are involved on a daily basis.
