Hilaria Baldwin has said she is pregnant but fears she is “experiencing a miscarriage”.

The Spanish yoga teacher and wife of Hollywood actor Alec Baldwin shared an emotional post on Instagram, telling fans she wanted to “be a part of the effort to normalise miscarriage and remove the stigma from it”.

Mother of four Hilaria, 35, said she has “always been so open” and promised herself if she got pregnant again she would “share the news with you guys pretty early, even if that means suffering a public loss”.

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.

Hilaria, mother to Carmen Gabriela, five, Rafael Thomas, three, Leonardo Angel Charles, two, and David, 10 months, said she is in the first trimester of her pregnancy.

She said there is “so much secrecy” surrounding that stage in the pregnancy, adding: “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,”, she said.

Hilaria, who met Baldwin, 61, in New York City eight years ago, said her baby does not have a strong heartbeat and “isn’t growing very much”.

She added: “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.”

She finished the post by pleading with fans to “be kind”.

Hilaria said: “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.”

Fans flooded the comments section with messages of support, praising Hilaria for her “bravery”.

Actress Jessica Simpson, who became a mother for the third time last month, commented with a love heart emoji.
