Alec Baldwin’s wife and wellness expert Hilaria Baldwin is on a mission to “normalize the postpartum figure.” The mom of four, who welcomed her youngest child with the actor on May 17, posted a mirror selfie in her underwear a day after welcoming baby No. 4 to encourage other moms to “be patient and kind” with their bodies.
“I always post a photo in this mirror in my hospital room within 24 hours after having my babies (except with Carmen...I was too much of a nervous first time mama 😂),” she shared along with the snap. “… I took this photo, Friday, the morning after this new baby was born. My purpose here is to normalize the postpartum figure and over the next days, weeks, and months, show you how I strengthen my body and return to my non pregnant self. You all came with me through my pregnancy...now it’s time to turn back into me. We all come in different shapes, sizes, and health experiences...but given the right love and care, we can feel really good within our skin. We just have to be patient and kind with our bodies.”
She continued that the photos are “not glamorous” or filtered but part of her “real journey.”
“I have so much respect and admiration for the human body,” she concluded. “I hope that intention shines through and we can inspire each other to be healthier and happier. #wegotthis2018.”
Alec and Hilaria are also parents to Carmen, 4, Rafael, 2, and Leo, 1.
The yoga guru kept followers up-to-date on her pregnancy and pregnancy workouts prior to welcoming her 4th child, whom she named Romeo Alejandro David Baldwin. Almost daily she shared with followers different yoga routines and which positions helped ease her aches and pains.
“I love watching my kids become so interested in being active,” she posted back in April after Carmen joined her in a mini workout and stretch. “Taking care of our bodies is not only important for our own health, but also to set a good example for our children. It’s like teaching them to eat their veggies and brush their teeth daily 💫.”
