Hilaria and Alec Baldwin revealed their baby girl’s name on Tuesday, but a mystery remains: Was she born to a surrogate mother?
The timeline of baby Lucia’s birth has been a major topic of discussion since Hilaria, 37, and Alec, 62, announced on Monday that they welcomed their sixth child just five months after the birth of their second youngest, Eduardo.
When asked for more details, the couple’s representative told Page Six: “We still don’t release a statement or confirm anything – what she posted is valid.
Although the Baldwins are silent as they share how their smallest ‘Baldwinito’ came to this world, fans on social media have noticed that Hilaria is following a surrogacy agency – which has offices in New York – called Alcea Surrogacy. on Instagram.
Coincidentally, the company praised one of its ‘IP addresses’, which stands for Intended Parents, on the ‘Amazing Birth of Their Daughter’ just days before Alec and Hilaria shared the first baby photo. Lucia.
Page Six was unable to confirm whether Hilaria and Alec used Alcea Surrogacy to welcome their sixth child. A company representative and the Baldwins did not immediately return our requests for comment.
Alec and Hilaria live in Manhattan with their newborn and five other children, their 5 month old son Eduardo, their 2 year old son Romeo Alejandro David, their 4 year old son Leonardo Ángel Charles, their 5 year old son Rafael Thomas and his daughter Carmen Gabriela, 7 years old.
However, it’s also possible that Hilaria is following the narrative 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 challenges of pregnancy loss after suffering two miscarriages in 2019.
“I see Hilaria being so raw and vulnerable in the face of her own losses,” said the executive director. “The more time and influential people there are talking about the just… the devastation of the loss. What this leads to is perhaps hope.
Although Hilaria has spoken openly about her pregnancies in the past, she hasn’t revealed many details about Lucia’s birth. In this interview with Richardson-Mook, she spoke of the “fear” some may have that “people will not see you as the mother if you have used a surrogate mother,” but she did not say if she did. had already used one.
“But then you really think about, not just those nine months, but all the sleepless nights, all the throwing up on you, the school, all those lessons. . . all the other experiences that make you a mother and a father, ”she added.
Richardson-Mook pointed out that this is not an easy decision for parents, and it takes parents, on average, around 50 months to work through the surrogacy process.
If that was the case for Hilaria and Alec, then they would have been immersed in surrogacy long before she got pregnant with Eduardo.
“It all comes down to mom’s guilt,” Hilaria said on her podcast. “Am I worth that?” Is this a risk I’m willing to take – on both sides? “
On social media, a fan asked Alec about the birth of his child, writing: “Who is the mother? She was not pregnant. She gave birth six months ago. If it was a substitute, just say so.
He retorted, “You should shut down the fk and mind your own business.”
