Hilaria Baldwin revealed the gender of her seventh child on Instagram. The expectant mother revealed that she and husband Alec Baldwin are having a daughter — and explained why the news felt less significant this time.
“It’s always been both fun and meaningful for me to find out what is the sex of my baby, yet, as I grow and learn, I want to do it a bit differently this time around,” she wrote. “What will make our baby a loving, whole person? What matters? What will make them feel seen, free, and proud?”
The yoga teacher has been hesitant to reveal the gender of her baby. Baldwin revealed during an intimate Instagram story in early April that a miscarriage she experienced in 2019 was influencing her decision to expose too much to the world. She also wants to educate parents not to put too much importance on their newborn child’s gender identity.
Hilaria Baldwin says:
“Many of you know how connected I am to the LGBTQIA+ community and I am talking with a few close confidants on how I can be thoughtful and inclusive on helping to curate a more gender inclusive world,” she said. “Quite frankly it may just be continuing on as I have. But given all of the prejudice I’m seeing in this country right now, I need to pause and give it a good think and get some advice. It pains me so much to see that people are vilified and harassed and not included for simply being who they are. Peaceful, loving, beautiful humans.”
