You can imagine how easy it’d be to get overwhelmed as the mom to four little youngsters under the age of 5, but Hilaria Baldwin makes parenting look like a piece of cake. In fact, the yoga guru — who is the mom to daughter Carmen, 5, and sons Rafael, 3, Leonardo, 2, and Romeo, 10 months with her husband, Alec Baldwinnever imagined being a parent to such a big brood.

“When I was growing up, I didn’t think I wasn’t going to become a mom, but having a big family wasn’t necessarily something that I was so focused on,” the 35-year-old admitted to Parents in late February. “But I met [Alec] when I had just turned 27, and then, I was pregnant by the time I was 28.”

The brunette beauty — who recently revealed she suffered a miscarriage — even dished that before having kids, she imaged herself taking a lot of time in between her pregnancies. “I was like, ‘Oh, I’m going to just start with one,’ and I was worried. I didn’t know if I was going to like it,” she confessed. “But that changed as soon as I gave birth the first time. I had just delivered Carmen, and my feet were in the stirrups, I had her on my chest, and I said to Alec, ‘Oh, my God. I want to do it again.'”
