Mãe do quarto filho há apenas dez meses, Hilaria Baldwin deixou um emotivo testemunho no instagram em que anuncia que está grávida, mas lamenta a forte possibilidade desta sua quinta gravidez não vingar.
A professora de yoga, de 35 anos, refere que quis deixar este testemunho para tirar o "estigma do aborto espontâneo" e expressar a "angústia da incerteza que vive neste período".
"Quero partilhar convosco que estou provavelmente em vias de sofrer um aborto. Sempre prometi a mim mesma que, se engravidasse de novo, partilharia as notícias convosco desde cedo, mesmo que isso significasse sofrer uma perda publicamente (...) E eu não quero esconder isso, só porque não é tão positivo e brilhante quanto o resto. Acho importante mostrar a verdade ... Porque o meu trabalho é ajudar as pessoas a serem reais e abertas. Além disso, não tenho vergonha ou constrangimento com esta experiência"".
Hilaria e Alec Baldwin casaram-se em 2012 e são pais de Carmen, de 5 anos, Rafael, de 3, Leonardo, de 2, e Romeo, de 10 meses. O ator é ainda pai ainda de Ireland, de 23, do casamento com Kim Bassinger.
I want to share with you that I am most likely experiencing a miscarriage. I always promised myself that if I were to get pregnant again, I would share the news with you guys pretty early, even if that means suffering a public loss. I have always been so open with you all about my family, fitness, pregnancies...and I don’t want to keep this from you, just because it isn’t as positive and shiny as the rest. I think it’s important to show the truth...because my job is to help people by being real and open. Furthermore, I have no shame or embarrassment with this experience. I want to be a part of the effort to normalize miscarriage and remove the stigma from it. There is so much secrecy during the first trimester. This works for some, but I personally find it to be exhausting. I’m nauseous, tired, my body is changing. And I have to pretend that everything is just fine—and it truly isn’t. I don’t want to have to pretend anymore. I hope you understand. So, this is what is going on now: the embryo has a heartbeat, but it isn’t strong, and the baby isn’t growing very much. So we wait—and this is hard. So much uncertainty...but the chances are very, very small that this is a viable pregnancy. I have complete confidence that my family and I will get through this, even if the journey is difficult. I am so blessed with my amazing doctor, my dear friends, and my loving family...My husband and my four very healthy babies help me keep it together and have the perspective of how truly beautiful life is, even when it occasionally seems ugly. The luck and gratitude I feel that I am my babies’ mommy, is wonderfully overwhelming and comforting. In your comments, please be kind. I’m feeling a bit fragile and I need support. I’m hoping, that by sharing this, I can contribute to raising awareness about this sensitive topic.
