Is there really anything more exciting than a baby’s first words? Proud mom-of-four Hilaria Baldwin took to Instagram on Thursday, January 24 to share that her youngest child, 8-month-old son Romeo, has officially started saying lots of phrases to his parents and siblings — and he can already speak a little bit of Spanish!
“So far, his words are: ‘Mama, dada, hola, hi, bye!’ 36 weeks Rome baby! Every morning he wakes us up saying ‘hola mama’ and today he said ‘hola dada,'” the 35-year-old captioned a cute new pic of Romeo as she celebrated her baby’s latest milestone. Take a look at Hilaria’s heartwarming post below!
It wasn’t long before the fitness guru’s impressed fans began commenting on the Instagram post. “My goodness that’s so young to be using actual words — amazing,” one fan wrote in the comments section. “He is absolutely beautiful. I love his little face,” another fan gushed of the sweet baby.
Not only has Romeo started speaking, but he’s already starting to learn a second language, too. Hilaria is from Spain and both she and her husband, Alec Baldwin, have previously expressed how important it is that their children speak both English and Spanish. “Our kids, especially the older ones, who speak more, are fully bilingual,” the 60-year-old actor revealed to Hola! USA this past October.
“My wife speaks Spanish in the house and Carmen is in a school which is a full language immersion,” Alec said of his daughter Carmen, 5. “The concern and the passion that my wife has — and me too — for two languages is essential. We make the utmost effort. This is a priority for my wife — Spanish is fundamental.” So cool!
Besides Romeo and Carmen, Alec and Hilaria are also the parents to Rafael, 3, and Leonardo, 2. It hasn’t even been a year since Hilaria last gave birth, and the yoga instructor has admitted that she already contemplates whether the couple should have baby No. 5.
“I think about it a lot,” Hilaria said in an Instagram story posted on in October 2018. “When I’ll have a day that’s really hard with the kids and I’m like, ‘No more kids!’ And then I have a day where they’re like really cute like this and I’m like, ‘I could have another one.’ We’ll see.” Let’s be honest, we would love another Baldwinito baby!
