The yoga instructor and her actor husband, Alec Baldwin, surprised fans on Monday after revealing that they had welcomed their sixth child together.
Alec was forced to jump to Hilaria’s defense after some fans left negative remarks underneath the announcement on Instagram.
“Who’s the mother? She wasn’t pregnant. She gave birth six months ago,” wrote one hater.
The “Motherless Brooklyn” star clapped back, “you should shut the f**k up and mind your own business.”
Another user wrote, “Wish I knew why are people so mean.”
Alec replied, “Because, basically, they’re not very smart. Americans are people who know less about how to live a peaceful, healthy life than most of the civilized world.”
Hilaria took to Instagram to have her say on Tuesday.
Taking inspiration from former U.S. First Lady Michelle Obama, the 37-year-old star wrote, “We go high.”
“I have come to the frightening conclusion that I am the decisive element. It is my personal approach that creates the climate. It is my daily mood that makes the weather,” read the post.
Hilaria continued, “In all situations, it is my response that decides whether a crisis is escalated or deescalated, and a person is humanized and dehumanized. If we treat people as they are, we make them worse. If we treat people as they ought to be, we help them become what they are capable of becoming.”
The mother of six also shared a photograph of her new arrival.
“We are so in love with our daughter, Lucia,” she wrote, revealing the newborn’s name. “Just like your brothers and sisters, you are a dream come true”
Hilaria and Alec are parents to Carmen, 7, Rafael, 5, Leonardo, 4, Romeo, 2, and Eduardo, six months. Alec and ex-wife Kim Basinger are also parents to 25-year-old daughter Ireland.
