You can imagine how easy it’d be to get overwhelmed as the mom of six little youngsters, but Hilaria Baldwin makes parenting look like a piece of cake. In fact, the “Mom Brain” podcast host — who shares Carmen, Rafael, Leonardo, Romeo, Eduardo and newborn Lucia with husband Alec Baldwin — never imagined being a parent to so many cute kids.
“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,” she told Parents in February 2019. “But I met [Alec] when I had just turned 27, and then, I was pregnant by the time I was 28.”
The actress even dished that before having kids, she imagined herself taking a lot of time between her pregnancies. Considering she had her babies back-to-back from 2013 to now, aside from two miscarriages throughout 2019, that certainly wasn’t the case for Hilaria.
“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 explained to the outlet. “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.'”
While life as a busy mama can be quite amazing, it also gets hectic really quickly. The Living Clearly Method author, as well as the Saturday Night Live star, have had their hands full since welcoming Eduardo in September 2020. At the time, Hilaria and Alec announced the news on Instagram and shared a photo of their youngest boy.
“We would love to introduce you to Eduardo Pau Lucas Baldwin,” the brunette beauty penned. “Born September 8, 2020, at 7:46 p.m. He weighed 7 pounds, 8 ounces. His name means ‘wealthy guardian of peace and light.’ We love you, baby Edu.”
Just five months later, however, Hilaria and Alec surprised the world when they welcomed their sixth child, Lucia, in February 2021. Alongside a pic of the loving mom holding the newborn in her arms while their older kiddos huddle around, Hilaria penned, “7,” with a heart. Shortly after, a source told ET Lucia was born via surrogate.
Now that they have a full house, fans are wondering if Hilaria and Alec are done expecting their family. “Eventually we will stop,” the fitness guru once told People, while noting she couldn’t be more grateful for her children. “The best thing about having a big family is there’s just so much love.”
But in order to keep her big brood under control, Hilaria has had to find a few tips and tricks that work for her family, which is why we’re sure raising baby No. 6 will be a breeze.
