Hilaria Baldwin is a busy mom. How can you not be in New York? She is married to actor Alec Baldwin, mother to four kids under five years old, and a hustling entrepreneur with multiple businesses and passion projects.
There is a reason why Hilaria has more than half a million followers on Instagram: Despite her glamorous lifestyle, mothers everywhere can relate to her. She isn’t afraid to be honest and raw about the joys and challenges of parenting, documenting the less glamorous side of motherhood on social media. By peeling away the layers of glamour, we see a mother who is willing to be transparent. She helps parents feel that they are not alone when their kids start screaming in public or refuse to eat their vegetables at dinner.
Hilaria has recently extended her authentic, transparent approach to more painful subjects. On April 9, Hilaria shared that she had experienced a miscarriage, thanking her social media followers for their support by saying, “Thank you all for listening, for your support, and for sharing your own personal stories. We are stronger together … I hope this conversation continues to grow and that we stick together through both the beautiful and challenging moments in life.” Many of her followers who have experienced this heartbreak thanked her for her bravery.
According to a recent op-ed she penned for Glamour, Hilaria felt it was important to share her experience to destigmatize the experience of miscarriage. Despite the fact that miscarriages are common (10 to 25 percent of pregnancies are estimated to end in miscarriage), discussing them remains taboo.
As her career goes stratospheric, Hilaria ensures she makes her health a priority. With her background as a dancer, she has always been active, and after discovering the benefits of yoga, she trained as a yoga teacher, and then cofounded the New York City chain of yoga studios, Yoga Vida.
We caught up with Hilaria to chat about her daily routines, how she manages her brood of kids while keeping her marriage to Alec strong, and her popular podcast with Daphne Oz, Mom Brain, by Gallery Media Group.
