The baby girl’s arrival was announced earlier this week and comes six months after the yoga guru and her husband Alec Baldwin‘s fifth child, Edu, was born.
“Our hearts are filled with so much gratitude,” she wrote via Instagram. “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,” Hilaria concluded. “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.”
According to People, a source confirms the couple welcomed Lucia via surrogate.
Hilaria’s post comes after Alec fired back at an Instagram user who took issue with the announcement of his and his wife’s latest addition to their family.
“She gave birth six months ago. If it was a surrogate just say that. If the baby was adopted just say that. If the baby was a product of an affair and you’ve decided to raise it with your wife just say that,” one person commented on Alec’s post. “If you don’t want to say anything — why don’t you both stop constantly posting and begging for clickbait. Just raise your 100 children in private.”
Alec clapped back in response, writing, “You should shut the f–k up and mind your own business.”
Hilaria, 37, and Alec, 62, also share sons Edu, who was born in September 2020, Romeo Alejandro David, two, Leonardo Ángel Charles, four, Rafael Thomas, five, and daughter Carmen, seven.
