Hilaria Baldwin has shared an ultrasound photograph of the baby she lost to a miscarriage, opening up in an emotional post that read: "I am physically starting to feel like myself again." The 35-year-old, who is the wife of actor Alec Baldwin, had revealed to her Instagram followers earlier in April that she had sadly lost her baby. In her latest post, she said: "Since so many of you have been asking, I want to tell you that I am doing well. It has been 2 weeks since the D&C and I am physically starting to feel like myself again. Emotionally I am ok too... when we choose to become parents, we take a big risk with our hearts. Never do we love so intensely - and this is scary, but so worth it."
Hilaria first posted about the devastating miscarriage earlier in April
The caption continued: "This time, when I opened my heart up to another baby, he or she didn't stay very long. But I love this little soul deeply and wholly. We all have a purpose in life, and I believe my little one left positivity in it's short life. I felt a deep provocation to share what was going on and, in being so open, some great conversations emerged. Creating a positive from a negative, this little flicker of life left its mark."
Unsurprisingly, Hilaria's followers flooded the post with supportive comments, with one fan replying: "Where on earth did Alec find you? Now I know why he said to Regina King on his talk show 'my wife is luminous'. I don't know you but you seem to be such a beautiful soul. I'm so sorry for your loss." Another poignantly added: "Thank you, my D&C is tomorrow. I am heartbroken. But more so because no one talks about it and no one asks. So thank you for sharing your story."
The mother-of-four first gave a public insight into her miscarriage during the early stages, when she shared a post that read: "I want to be a part of the effort to normalise miscarriage and remove the stigma from it. There is so much secrecy during the first trimester. This works for some, but I personally find it to be exhausting. I’m nauseous, tired, my body is changing. And I have to pretend that everything is just fine – and it truly isn't. I don’t want to have to pretend anymore."
