Hilaria Baldwin is pregnant and “most likely” going through a miscarriage. The mother of four and wife of Alec Baldwin revealed the news on Instagram in a gut-wrenching post.

“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,” she says sharing a mirror picture of herself cradling her tiny bump. “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.”

It goes without saying that Baldwin delivers the news with a heavy heart, but she hopes her openness will spark a greater conversation on miscarriage and baby loss. “I think it’s important to show the truth…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.”

The fitness guru then went on to talk about the secrecy common in the first trimester and why she thinks it makes it even harder for her to cope.

“I’m nauseous, tired, my body is changing. And I have to pretend that everything is just fine—and it truly isn’t,” she admits. “I don’t want to have to pretend anymore.”

Balwin explained her baby-to-be isn’t growing very much and the heartbeat isn’t very strong. “The chances are very, very small that this is a viable pregnancy,” she shares. No matter the journey, she knows her support system of family and friends will help her get through it. But even so, she’s not afraid to confess what she’s going through emotionally and physically.

“Please be kind. I’m feeling a bit fragile and I need support,” she admits. “I’m hoping that by sharing this, I can contribute to raising awareness about this sensitive topic.

Baldwin isn’t alone in her struggle. Sadly, 25 percent of pregnancies end in miscarriage. But the more we talk about it, the less people will feel alone. Hear from 18 other celebrities who’ve bravely shared their story.
