Expecting mom Hilaria Baldwin revealed her eldest daughter, Carmen, is interested in knowing where babies come from. The yoga guru, who is pregnant with baby No. 5, inquired for advice from fans after her 6-year-old little girl demanded a “straightforward answer” on how she got pregnant with her little brother or sister.
“I need advice. Carmen is super fascinated with how babies are made,” the 36-year-old wrote via Instagram Stories on Monday, June 8. “I used to be able to get out of getting into too much by asking her what she thinks … and then she will lose interest.”
Now that Carmen is turning 7 years old “in a couple of months,” Hilaria said “she is very much asking for” a more legitimate response. However, the doting mom — who also shares sons Rafael, 4, Leonardo, 3, and Romeo, 2, with husband Alec Baldwin — can’t help but wonder if Carmen is still too young to talk about the birds and the bees.
“A friend told her that babies are made with a seed in an egg, but she wants to know how they get inside a woman’s body,” the Living Clearly Method author continued. “Is that too young? What do I do?”
Carmen’s interest in knowing how babies are born comes as no surprise considering she seems more thrilled than ever for her youngest sibling’s arrival. In mid-May, Hilaria shared the sweetest video of her daughter snuggling up to her baby bump.
“She was feeling the baby move and [was] having a whole convo about how she is so excited to be a big sister again,” the fitness expert gushed in the caption.
Since she announced her pregnancy in early April, the stunning actress — who suffered two miscarriages since April 2019 — has been keeping fans updated on her road to motherhood. Hilaria even marveled over her “body’s elasticity” and how fortunate she feels to have kids.
“I’m so grateful that I have been able to go on this pregnancy journey so many times and meet my children,” she gushed on Instagram in late May. “The fear that I felt the first time [I was] pregnant with Carmen, of what was to come, has now faded into a complete calm and acceptance of all of the changes required to bring my little people into the world.”
The brunette beauty also credited her fitness routine for helping her feel strong on the inside. “I work out, both pregnant and non-pregnant, not to create a certain look — that is a mere side effect of working out — it’s rather to tell my body that I value her,” she wrote. “Moving and breathing, stretching, cardio and toning …[that gives] my body the attention she wants and deserves.”
We love following along on Hilaria’s pregnancy just as much as Carmen!
