Hilaria and Alec Baldwin revealed the name of their baby girl on Tuesday, but there is still a mystery: Was she born via a surrogate?
The timeline for baby Lucia’s birth has been an important point of conversation since Hilaria, 37, and Alec, 62, announced on Monday that they welcomed their sixth child just five months after their second youngest, Eduardo, was born.
When the couple was pressured for further details, the couple’s representative told Page Six: “We are still not issuing a statement or confirming anything – what she sent stands.”
Although the Baldwins keep quiet about telling how their youngest “Baldwinito”
Coincidentally, the company congratulated one of their “IPs”, which stands for Intended Parents, with the “amazing birth of their daughter” a few 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 company representative and Baldwins did not immediately return our requests for comment.
Alec and Hilaria live in Manhattan with their newborn and other five 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 7-year-old daughter Carmen Gabriela .
However, it is also possible that Hilaria is following the account because she interviewed Alcea Surrogacy’s co-founder, Angela Richardson-Mook, on her “Mom Brain” podcast back 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 terms of her own losses,” the CEO said. “The more times and the more people with influence who talk about, the more … the destruction of losses. What it leads to is perhaps hope. ”
Although Hilaria has previously been revealing about her pregnancies, she has not revealed many details about Lucia’s birth. In this interview with Richardson-Mook, she talked about the “fear” that some might experience that “people would 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 about not only the nine months, but all the sleepless nights, all the vomiting on you, the school, all these lessons. . . all the other experiences that make you a mom and dad, ”she added.
Richardson-Mook pointed out that this is not an easy decision for parents and that it takes parents on average about 50 months to work through the surrogate process.
If this were the case for Hilaria and Alec, they would have immersed themselves in surrogacy long before she became pregnant with Eduardo.
“It all comes down to mother’s fault,” Hilaria said on her podcast. Am I worth it? Is it a risk I am willing to take – on both sides? ”
On social media, a fan asked Alec about the birth of his child and wrote: “Who is the mother? She was not pregnant. She gave birth six months ago. If it was a surrogate, just say so. ”
He retorted: “You have to close f – k and keep an eye on your own business.”
