Hilaria Baldwin announced Monday that she and her husband, Alec Baldwin, welcomed their sixth child together, less than six months after she gave birth to baby number five.
Baldwin posted a photo on Instagram of her and her children, Carmen, Raphael, Leonardo, Romeo, and Eduardo, along with the newborn baby.
“7❤️📸Alec,” he captioned the photo. The newborn would be Alec Baldwin’s seventh child, as he also has a 25-year-old daughter, Ireland, with his ex-wife Kim Basinger.
A week earlier, she posted a short video hugging a newborn, with the caption: “Gratitude.”
The Baldwins had not publicly announced that they were expecting another baby. Hilaria, a yoga instructor and actress, announced the birth of her fifth child on September 8, 2020. She had previously opened up on social media about.
Baldwin took a break from social media in late December after internet detectives raised questions about his claims of Spanish heritage. After making several apologies on Instagram, she took a break from posting until February 5, then wrote, “I have spent the last month listening, reflecting, and wondering how I can learn and grow. My parents raised my brother and me with two cultures, American and Spanish, and I feel a true sense of belonging to both. “
She said she could have better explained her deep connections to two cultures, that she is proud of the way she was raised and that she and her husband are raising their children with “the same love and respect for both.”
“Being vulnerable and striving to learn and grow is what we have built our community on, and I look forward to returning to the supportive and caring environment we have built together,” he continued. Baldwin, who for years has worn a Spanish accent and emphasized his Spanish heritage, grew up in Boston but spent time with his family in Spain.
Throughout his posts since then, Baldwin never mentioned another baby along the way. It is unclear if the latest addition to the family was born through a surrogate or was adopted. CBS News has reached out to Baldwin for more information.
