Hilaria Baldwin Just Shared the Sweetest Photo of Baby Lucia With Big Brother Edu
"Our babies who bring light into our lives—almost like twins, we love you so much."
Update, March 4th, 2021: Hilaria Baldwin just shared a little more about her new baby girl's story and how happy the family is to have her. Today she posted an Instagram photo of the little girl alongside big brother Edu, who was born in September.
Baldwin wrote, "Our hearts are filled with so much gratitude. The Baldwinitos craved so much to have a little sister." She went on to recall losing a baby girl in 2019 and how hard it was—but how strong her other children were, at times stronger than even she could be.
"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," she wrote, before revealing baby Lucia's full name—María Lucía Victoria.
Original story, March 2nd, 2021: The Baldwinitos have grown by one—again! The Baldwin family just welcomed a sister into the group: Hilaria's sixth child and Alec's seventh. Her name is Lucia, and she is the sweetest pea in the whole wide world.
Hilaria first announced Lucia's arrival yesterday, March 1st, with a picture of all six kiddos (Carmen, 7, Rafael, 5, Leonardo, 4, Romeo, 2, and Eduardo, 5 months) piled on top of mom. She captioned the photo, "7❤️📸Alec."
Then, earlier today, Hilaria gave her followers a close up of Lucia, writing, "We are so in love with our daughter, Lucia. Just like your brothers and sisters, you are a dream come true." Baldwin reposted the photo and captioned it, "Blessed..."
Neither Hilaria nor Alec have disclosed how Lucia came into their family. But with Hilaria being open on social media about going through two miscarriages in 2019 before successfully getting pregnant with Eduardo, some speculate she and Alec may have linked up with a surrogate and decided to go through with the process despite eventually getting pregnant naturally. However, the notoriously long process of adoption could also explain baby number six.
Though, how Lucia came to be is really no one's business but the theirs, as Alec has been (somewhat harshly) reminding critics in the comments.
Hilaria's Instagram comments were switched off following the influx of hate regarding her Spanish heritage (or lack thereof, as some would claim) in late 2020. A Twitter pile-on began after details regarding Hilaria's upbringing in Massachusetts (she claimed she was primarily raised in Spain) were offloaded onto the site, which led to people calling her out for using a fake Spanish accent and attempting to claim a culture that is not hers.
Both she and Alec issued video responses, but Hilaria has kept her Instagram comments turned off ever since. And now with a new baby in the house just five months after she gave birth, we can only imagine the comments section would be just as offensive. So, we're happy to wait until the couple decides to release more information on their own time, if they decide to do that at all.
