TV personality and mum-of-four Hilaria Baldwin has shared a powerful photo on Instagram, telling followers she is ‘likely experiencing a miscarriage’

Sharing her post with over half a million Instagram followers, US TV personality Hilaria Baldwin has revealed that she is likely experiencing a miscarriage during her fifth pregnancy. Despite feeling incredibly vulnerable and fragile, Hilaria says she felt it was important to share the reality of baby loss and remind other women that they are not alone.

A Sensitive Topic

The wife of popular actor Alec Baldwin, Hilaria told her followers that she made the decision to announce this pregnancy early, regardless of the potential for complications. “I want to share with you that I am most likely experiencing a miscarriage,” she posted alongside an image of her small baby bump. “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 no shame or embarrassment with this experience. I want it to be part of the effort to normalise miscarriage and remove the stigma from it.” Hilaria said that while her baby still had a heartbeat, it’s growth had slowed dramatically and the pregnancy was unlikely to be viable.

Shared Pain

After just an hour, the post had received more than 30,000 likes and over 6000 comments. “Thank you for your openness, honesty and awareness of this subject,” one follower wrote. “Sending prayers to you and your family. “I have had three miscarriages myself,” said another. “I commend you for coming forward and bringing this experience to the public.” Hilaria told her followers that she is drawing strength from her husband and children. “My husband and four healthy babies help me keep it together and have the perspective of how beautiful life truly is,” she said.

We think this post is an incredible statement about the pain of miscarriage and serves as an important reminder that baby loss affects women from all walks of life. Our thoughts are with Hilaria, Alec and their family.

  • Even though it’s common, it doesn’t make it any less painful.
    I waited to tell most people but very close family I told.

  • It happens, and most women do not share their experiences.

  • With my first pregnancy, we were enquiring about having fertility tests done as it was taking so long. The first step is a pregnancy test. It was positive, I was only 3 weeks along, but way too excited not to share the news

  • Thank you for being brave enough to share with us. I was 3 months pregnant when I had a miscarriage and wasn’t allowed to talk about it. Back then my doctor said it was the wrong thing to do. I had to just carry on like nothing had happened. It was hard when people asked me how I was going and had to say everything was fine. It was 10 years before my new doctor said that I should have been allowed to ask questions about why it happened and talk to my husband about why I had never talked about it. It was so good to be able to speak after all that time. For years I always believed it was all my fault. Wishing you all the best

  • I waited for all my pregnancies and even hid it from close family after experience a devastating loss with my first pregnancy.

    I admire her strength and send her much love.
    I still can’t talk about my loss 6 years on

  • I think it’s a brave thing to do – to remove the stigma.

  • With my first we waited until 12 weeks to announce publicly. We recently miscarried our second and we had only shared with close family so having the support of family made things easier.

  • Such a hard topic, I waited until 12 weeks except very close family & best friends.

  • I preferred to wait to announce. Those close to me knew, but after suffering a mid pregnancy loss I knew how hard it was to then un-announce and have to announce a loss. Each to their own.

  • No waiting – announced early and a different experience with each pregnancy.

  • So sorry for them both
    I didn’t announce mine until over 12wks

  • Miscarriage is devastating, 9 years on and I am still heartbroken but have had two babies since both premature but healthy

  • I’m so sorry for her – I know the pain of miscarriage. But I think she’s so brave & strong to share this as miscarriage is still so not talked about & it makes the pain even harder when no one knows what to say or do. Somewhat ‘normalising’ miscarriage will hopefully help women in the future feel less alone and more able to talk about their loss.

  • She’s done a brave annoucement but it wouldn’t be easy for anyone to do. A personal thing.

  • So sad and I am glad she is speaking up about it not enough people do.
    I am one in four who has experience a miscarriage….more then I would like too. So good on her.
