Hilaria and Alec Baldwin revealed their baby’s name on Tuesday, but a mystery remains: Was he born through a surrogate mother?
Baby Lucia’s birth timeline has been a major talking point since Hilaria, 37, and Alec, 62, announced Monday that they welcomed their sixth child just five months after the birth of their second youngest child. , Edward.
When pressed for more details, the couple’s representative told Page Six: “We are not yet issuing a statement or confirming anything, which she posted.”
Although the Baldwins are keeping quiet about sharing how their little “Baldwin” came into this world, fans on social media noted that Hilaria follows a surrogacy agency, which has offices in New York, called Alcea Surrogacy on Instagram.
Coincidentally, the company congratulated one of its “IPs,” which stands for Intended Parents, on the “incredible birth of their daughter” just days before Alec and Hilaria shared the first photo of baby Lucia.
Page Six could not confirm whether Hilaria and Alec used Alcea Surrogacy to welcome their sixth child. A representative for the company and the Baldwins did not immediately respond to our requests for comment.
Alec and Hilaria live in Manhattan with their newborn and five other children, 5-month-old son Eduardo, 2-year-old son Romeo Alejandro David, 4-year-old son Leonardo Ángel Charles, 5-year-old son Rafael Thomas and their daughter. Carmen Gabriela, 7 years old.
However, it’s also possible that Hilaria is following the account because she interviewed Alcea Surrogacy co-founder Angela Richardson-Mook on her “Mom Brain” podcast in November.
In the interview, Richardson-Mook praised Hilaria for being so open about the difficulties of pregnancy loss after suffering two miscarriages in 2019.
“I see Hilaria being so raw and vulnerable in regards to her own losses,” said the CEO. “The more times and more influential people speak, the just… devastation of the loss. What it leads to is perhaps hope. “
Although Hilaria has been outspoken about her pregnancies in the past, she hasn’t revealed many details about Lucia’s birth. In that interview with Richardson-Mook, she spoke about the “fear” some may experience that “people will not see you as the mother if you used a surrogate,” but she did not say if she had ever used one.
“But then you really think, not just in those nine months, but in all the sleepless nights, in all the vomiting in you, in school, in all these lessons. . . all the other experiences that make you mother and father, “he added.
Richardson-Mook noted that this is not an easy decision for parents and that it takes parents on average about 50 months to work through the surrogacy process.
If this was the case with Hilaria and Alec, then they would have delved into surrogacy long before she became pregnant with Eduardo.
“It all comes down to mom’s guilt,” Hilaria said on her podcast. “Do I deserve this? Is it a risk that I am willing to take, on both sides? “
On social media, a fan asked Alec about the birth of his son and wrote, “Who is the mother? She was not pregnant. She gave birth six months ago. If it was a substitute, say so. “
He replied, “You should shut your mouth and take care of your own business.”
