Hilaria Baldwin turns the other cheek.
On Thursday, the mother-of-six took to her Instagram Story to open up about a recent run-in with a shameful baby bump.
Hilaria is currently expecting her seventh child with actor Alec Baldwin, so she’s no stranger to the realities of pregnancy, including body shaming. However, her time around the entrepreneur and author doesn’t let those hurtful comments ruin her day — and she speaks out against the haters.
“Oh, I forgot to tell you that at the carnival yesterday, an old man who was working at one of the stalls shouted at me: ‘I can tell they are twins! That big belly! I know these things!” Self-proclaimed expert. I’m sure he knows from all the babies he’s had. I just wave and step on them…who cares? Why are these? always men doing this? A baby comes out of this body. Why argue with an ‘expert’?” she wrote alongside a laughing emoji.
This isn’t the first time Baldwin has dealt with people saying negative things about his bump. During her third pregnancy, she spoke to Today on the all-too-common practice of commenting on pregnant women’s bodies, whether intended or not.
Regarding the negative remarks she receives, Baldwin said, “Most of the time I just ignore, block, delete. Sometimes I like to post it in a message if I think it might help other people get it. learn more about bullying… Responding with love, forgiveness and support is the best I can do.”
She also encouraged pregnant women to appreciate their bodies.
“We don’t need to be ashamed or hide the pregnant figure. I believe our bodies are amazing and we should celebrate them,” she explained.
Baldwin is one of many stars who have opened up about the shame they feel about their pregnant bodies. Previously, Blac Chyna responded to negative comments she received about her appearance while carrying her first child, and Australian fitness influencer Hannah Polities applauded people who claimed her pregnant body was unhealthy.
In July, Baldwin revealed how her body is “slowing down” while carrying her seventh child in a lengthy post about pregnancy and exercise.
“As I enter the last trimester of this pregnancy, I can feel my body slowing down. I love exercising while pregnant and I’m grateful that my pregnancies allowed me to be active,” he said. -she writes. “We all know that every pregnancy is different and we need to let nature go and listen to what our reality is. I got pregnant with Carmen at 28 and I’m 38 to have this baby girl. The age and the wear and tear of so many pregnancies and babies are things I really feel.”
