Hilaria Baldwin is waiting to publicly announce her seventh child’s sex until she is past the second trimester of her pregnancy, which she confirmed last week.
In an emotional Instagram, the 38-year-old yoga instructor revealed when she will feel comfortable letting the world know whether she is expecting a little girl or boy.
‘So many of you are asking what I’m having… I do know and I will tell you but I’m waiting for two things,’ she began.
Baby on board: Hilaria Baldwin is waiting to publicly announce her seventh child’s sex until she is past the second trimester of her pregnancy, which she confirmed last week
‘1. I lost a baby at 4 months in 2019 (maybe some of you remember). I think about her daily and understand that motherhood has its beauty and its darkness,’ the mom-of-six continued. ‘But I will wait until I’m past the point when I lost my daughter.’
The Living Clearly Method author also explained she wants to be respectful and gender inclusive when she does disclose her baby-to-be’s sex.
‘Many of you know how connected I am to the LGBTQIA+ community and I am talking with a few close confidants on how I can be thoughtful and inclusive on helping to curate a more gender inclusive world,’ she explained.

Hilaria concluded: ‘Quite frankly it may just be continuing on as I have. But given all of the prejudice I’m seeing in this country right now, I need to pause and give it a good think and get some advice,’ she added. ‘It pains me so much to see that people are vilified and harassed and not included for simply being who they are. Peaceful, loving, beautiful humans.’
Her post comes one week after announcing she is pregnant another baby with husband Alec Baldwin, just months after the actor became embroiled in a devastating tragedy when he accidentally shot dead a crew member, Halyna Hutchins, on the set of his movie Rust.
The star shared the news on her Instagram last Tuesday with a video of herself and Alec, 63, playing with their six children after sharing their happy news with their brood.

Brushing off scandal: The news also comes after Hilaria’s Spanish heritage controversy
‘After many ups and downs over the past few years, we have an exciting up and a huge surprise: another Baldwinito is coming this fall,’ Hilaria wrote.
Hilaria, who suffered two miscarriages before welcoming her fifth child, Edu, admitted that she didn’t think anymore children were in her future, explaining that the news of her latest pregnancy came as something of a ‘surprise’ for the family.
‘We were pretty sure our family was complete, and we’re beyond happy with this surprise,’ she continued, before saying of the video post: ‘I’m sharing with you the moment we told the kids – as you can see, they are super excited!’
Candid: Hilaria even documented her two miscarriages on social media, revealing in April 2019 that she ‘was most likely’ losing her unborn child while sharing an image of herself in lingerie
The post, which Alec also shared on his own Instagram account, went on to reference the ‘uncertain times’ that the Baldwins have faced – including, no doubt, the ongoing investigation into the on-set death of Hutchins last year.
‘Our new baby is a very bright spot in our lives,’ Hilaria – who announced earlier this month that she was taking a break from social media – wrote.
‘A blessing and a gift during such uncertain times. I’ve missed you during my break from social media…I’m back and looking forward to continuing with you this wild journey that we call “life.” Our love to you and your loved ones.’
Hilaria and Alec already share six children together: daughters María Lucía Victoria, 13 months, and Carmen Gabriela, eight, and sons Rafael Thomas, six, Leonardo Ángel Charles, five, Romeo Alejandro David, three, and Eduardo “Edu” Pao Lucas, 18 months.

Alec also has a daughter Ireland Baldwin, 26, with ex wife Kim Basinger.
Last year, Hilaria and Alec shocked their fans by announcing the arrival of their sixth child, Lucía, via surrogate just six months after the fitness guru gave birth to her fifth baby Edu following two miscarriages.
She shared her devastating news in April 2019, when she took to social media to document her miscarriage in a series of very candid photos and videos, the first of which showed her posing in her underwear, alongside a caption which read: ‘I want to share with you that I am most likely experiencing a miscarriage.’
