Day one. Hilaria Baldwin is documenting her postpregnancy bounce-back on Instagram once more. The yoga instructor shared an Instagram photo of her postpartum belly on Wednesday, September 14, taken just 24 hours after giving birth to her third child, Leonardo.
“I took this yesterday when Leonardo was about 24 hours old,” Hilaria, who is married to Alec Baldwin, wrote alongside the snap. “I did the same thing right after Rafael was born. It always makes me a bit nervous to do something like this, but I feel that in the age of such strong body shaming, I want to do all that I can to normalize a real body and promote healthy self esteem.”
In the mirror selfie, Hilaria looks amazing in a black lace bra and black underwear.
“Many of you know that I love to show the process of life’s experiences on the body and I am a firm believer in how a good diet and the right balance of exercise make us happy, healthy and strong,” Baldwin added. “So from here on, I want to dedicate the majority of my #366daysoflivingclearly #hilarialcm daily posts to getting back in shape and I invite you to do it with me.”
The third-time mom, who is the author of The Living Clearly Method, even acknowledged the not-so-glamorous aspects of giving birth.
“Did I have a c section?: No, I pushed him out,” she concluded. “Where are all the pads for bleeding?: I took them out briefly to snap this pic as there is a limit to how much you need to see.”
The Yoga Vida cofounder announced the arrival of Leonardo via Instagram on Monday, September 12.
"We are so pleased to introduce you to our new baby, Leonardo Angel Charles Baldwin," the 32-year-old captioned a sweet image of herself in a hospital bed with her newborn son. "It was such a special day bringing him into this world."
Hilaria and Baldwin, 58 — who married in June 2012 — are also the parents of Carmen, 3, and Rafael, 14 months.
