Last week Hilaria Baldwin revealed the very sad news that she’d experienced her second miscarriage of 2019.
Content note – This story discusses miscarriage.
The mum-of-four was in her second trimester when a routine ultrasound revealed that the baby she and husband Alec Baldwin were expecting no longer had a heartbeat.
This pregnancy followed an earlier loss back in April, and a jubilant previous post about making it to her second trimester.
This miscarriage was completely unexpected, Hilaria revealed, noting that she was also – of course – super grateful for the children she already has.
“We are very sad to share that today we learned that our baby passed away at 4 months,” she wrote on Instagram last week.
“We also want you to know that even though we are not ok right now, we will be.”
Understandably devastated, she was also determined to share her awful news with followers in the name of demystifying early pregnancy and the experience of losing a baby.
“I’m doing better”
Over the weekend, Hilaria again checked in via her Instagram stories, letting supporters know that she was managing okay, and on the path to healing.
She’s currently recovering from the D&C procedure that follows miscarriage but says she’s definitely on the mend.
“Little update: I’m doing better,” she posted on Instagram. “I have my moments when I feel better then I have moments when I will get really sad. But I feel like time and healing and everyone’s support is helping me. Spending time with my babies and husband helps so much. I’m so lucky to have them.”
“My heart goes out to those of you who suffer like this without support,” Hilaria continued.
“You are true warriors. I send you my love and admiration.”
Alec also shared an Instagram update of his own, sharing a photo of himself and his wife along with a heartfelt message.
“This woman is my best friend. I don’t know what my world would be like if I had not met her and made my life with her,” he wrote.

Eyes swollen from crying, groggy from anesthesia, crampy from the surgery…but I made it and I want you to know that I’m physically ok. I’m grateful for my family, friends, doctors and nurses, and all of you who have held my hand through this difficult time. You have no idea how much this means to me. One foot in front of the other…now I begin the healing journey ❤️
