Hilaria Baldwin has hit back at a cruel troll, who criticised her for revealing her potential miscarriage.
In an emotional Instagram post on Thursday, the wife of Alec Baldwin told her followers that she is “most likely” experiencing a miscarriage.
While many thanked Hilaria for sharing her story, one Instagram user commented, “Nothing is private anymore…good god you’re annoying…”
The mother-of-four quickly clapped back by replying, “Why are you on my page?”

I want to share with you that I am most likely experiencing a miscarriage. 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 always been so open with you all about my family, fitness, pregnancies…and I don’t want to keep this from you, just because it isn’t as positive and shiny as the rest. I think it’s important to show the truth…because my job is to help people by being real and open. Furthermore, I have no shame or embarrassment with this experience. I want to be a part of the effort to normalize miscarriage and remove the stigma from it. There is so much secrecy during the first trimester. This works for some, but I personally find it to be exhausting. I’m nauseous, tired, my body is changing. And I have to pretend that everything is just fine—and it truly isn’t. I don’t want to have to pretend anymore. I hope you understand. So, this is what is going on now: the embryo has a heartbeat, but it isn’t strong, and the baby isn’t growing very much. So we wait—and this is hard. So much uncertainty…but the chances are very, very small that this is a viable pregnancy. I have complete confidence that my family and I will get through this, even if the journey is difficult. I am so blessed with my amazing doctor, my dear friends, and my loving family…My husband and my four very healthy babies help me keep it together and have the perspective of how truly beautiful life is, even when it occasionally seems ugly. The luck and gratitude I feel that I am my babies’ mommy, is wonderfully overwhelming and comforting. In your comments, please be kind. I’m feeling a bit fragile and I need support. I’m hoping, that by sharing this, I can contribute to raising awareness about this sensitive topic.
In another comment, Hilaria wrote: “I would suggest that you go through and read even just a handful of comments from people who have experienced the same thing. And maybe your heart and compassion will grow.”
Hilaria shared a screenshot of the comments on her Instagram Story, and wrote, “Because this evil exists too … and it’s not ok.”
The 35-year-old shares four children with Alec – daughter Carmen Gabriela, 5, and sons Romeo Alejandro David, 10 months, Leonardo Ángel Charles, 2, and Rafael Thomas, 3.
Alec is also father to 23-year-old daughter Ireland, from his previous marriage to Kim Basinger.
