The news comes hours after Hilaria appeared on the “Today” show, where she discussed a week-old post where she revealed that she was “most likely suffering a miscarriage.” Hilaria and Alec are already parents to four children: Carmen, 5, Rafael, 3, Leonardo, 2, and Romeo, 10 months.
At the time of the interview, she shared that after the show she would be going to the doctor’s office to see if she had indeed miscarried.
“I’m pretty sure that this is not gonna stick,” she admitted. “And, you know what, when we agree to be parents we have to accept the good and the bad. Whether our child gets a scraped knee or gets their heart broken when they’re a teenager or gets really sick, or God forbid something worse, we have to realize that it’s not just all diapers and blankets and hair bows. We have to open our hearts and realize that there’s gonna be hard moments too.”
Hilaria also explained why she decided to share her story, stating that it “would be harder to do it silently.”
“I wanted to come out and speak about it because it’s something so many people deal with and, as women, we’re trained to deal with it silently,” she said on “Today”. “You’re definitely not supposed to say anything before 12 weeks. And some of that is because people are superstitious or that’s how they feel that they’re going to be stronger and a lot of it for other people is fear. And I don’t think we have to live with such fear.”
As for how she would handle her loss, she said that she is “somebody, that, even though I’m feeling it and it’s hard and it’s not what I want, I understand it. This is nature. There’s something probably off… and I have to accept that.”
“I have four children. I get to go home and hug them,” she continued. “There are plenty of stories on my Instagram, that’s not other peoples’ stories. And those people, for me, are so strong. People were telling me they had 11 miscarriages and no children and they are still there. They’re still showing up. They’re bringing love onto my Instagram. I mean that is so inspiring. I have so much respect for them.”
