Hilaria Baldwin Has Huge And Unexpected News To Share

The Baldwin family has faced several public scandals throughout the last few years. Hilaria Hayward-Thomas tied the knot with Alec Baldwin in 2012 after meeting at the now infamous New York City eatery, Pure Food and Wine (hello, "Bad Vegan" on Netflix) in 2011 (via Insider). While they've had a secure relationship with one another, their public scandals have found their names in the headlines for more negative reasons than positive.

Hilaria Baldwin found herself at the center of a public scandal when it was discovered that the Spanish accent she was known for was not authentic (per Hello! Magazine). She apologized and shared that she was raised in an American and Spanish household that blended cultures.

Then, sadly, her husband Alec, was on the set of the film "Rust" when a tragic accident occurred that led to the tragic death of a member of the crew (via Us Weekly).

These two have not had the easiest go with the media. However, they recently found their names in headlines again, but this time, with a happy twist behind it. The Baldwins recently shared huge family news.

The Baldwins are expecting another baby

Hilaria and Alec Baldwin just announced that they are expecting their 7th child together (via CBS News). Hilaria took to Instagram to share the exciting news. She wrote, "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," adding, "We were pretty sure our family was complete, and we're beyond happy with this surprise."

The post came as a surprise for fans, as Baldwin was on a social media break due to the media scandals surrounding her family. She made a nod to returning to the platform in the caption. "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," she wrote.

The new arrival will be the first child since the Baldwins welcomed their daughter who was born via surrogate a few months after Hilaria had given birth to their son (via People).
