Hilaria Baldwin has given birth to six of her seven children, but that doesn’t mean her daughter Lucia, who was born through a surrogate mother, is “less” hers, she says.
During Sunday’s episode of her Witches Anonymous podcast, the yoga instructor spoke candidly about using a surrogate mother to have Lucia, who was born in February 2021 — after two miscarriages in 2019.
After clarifying that “there are many different ways to become a parent,” she said: “I have no difference between my daughter, who was born through surrogacy, and my six other children that I carried.”
“There is no difference,” the 38-year-old woman was emphatic. “She is just as attached to me as any of the others.”
Hilaria, who gave birth to her seventh child with husband Alec Baldwin, 64, in September this year, noted: “In many ways we are considered ‘breeders’ – me, who have seven children, but a woman’s mission is to give life. And if you can’t reproduce in the traditional way or don’t want to reproduce in the traditional way, people they think they have a right to discuss you”.
After she and Alec recently reviewed some articles that were written about her and Lucia when she was born, Hilaria said she felt that many reporters “took the time to write about Lucia — not just as part of the family , but also in terms of how it came about.
As for the identity of her surrogate mother, she said she won’t say her name because she doesn’t want it.
However, Hilaria claims the two have an “amazing” relationship and “talk almost every day”.
“We are so close and have gone through such incredible transformations together.” she shared.
