Hilaria Baldwin has tragically suffered another miscarriage.
The mother of four shared the heartbreaking news on Monday, shortly after attending her 20-week scan with her doctors, and admitted that she was not expecting the sad outcome when she headed to her appointment earlier in the day.
The news is especially heartbreaking for Hilaria, 35, as she last suffered a miscarriage just seven months ago.
“We are very sad to share that today we learned that our baby passed away at 4 months. We also want you to know that even though we are not ok right now, we will be,” she wrote alongside a video of herself with her daughter Carmen, 6.
In the clip, a tearful Hilaria explains to Carmen that she doesn’t know how long it will be until the next baby comes, promising that she’ll “try really hard” to make a younger sibling happen one day.
“We are so lucky with our 4 healthy babies — and we will never lose sight of this. I told Carmen and took this so I could send it to Alec. I guess this is a good way to share it with you too,” she continued in the caption, referencing her husband Alec Baldwin and their other children, sons Romeo Alejandro David, 17 months, Leonardo Ángel Charles, 3, and Rafael Thomas, 4.
“I told her that this baby isn’t going to come after all…but we will try very hard to give her a little sister another time,” she went on. “I’m really devastated right now…I was not expecting this when I went to my scan today. I don’t know what else to say…I’m still in shock and don’t have this all quite clear. Please no paparazzi…that’s all I ask ”
The couple had announced Hilaria’s pregnancy earlier this year.
In April, Hilaria announced that she had suffered miscarriage after her unborn child showed no signs of a heartbeat at its scan.
In the wake of that loss, when the mom announced her latest pregnancy she received some backlash from fans who questioned why she was sharing the news so early.
Hilaria was quick to defend her decision and explain her reasoning behind the choice by responding in part, “Me coming out and saying what is going on gets the news out there … then they move on to the next story. It’s been something I’ve learned over the past decade … this is one of the reasons I’m so active on social media. The news can take images for free from my page rather than paying a paparazzi to come follow me.”
Weeks later, she opened up to PEOPLE further about why she felt compelled to talk about her pregnancy early on.
“The one thing that’s been liberating is I told people my first trimester,” she said of her current pregnancy. “It was so stressful for me to have to keep it a secret on top of everything when you don’t feel well, and it’s like everyone is telling you to not say anything.”
