Getting through it. Hilaria Baldwin revealed on Tuesday, April 9, that she suffered a miscarriage, and now the yoga instructor is opening up about how she’s dealing with her heartache.

“In coping with loss or a difficult time, it is important to be present for your emotions and process, but also keep an eye on perspective and joyful moments,” the fitness guru, 35, wrote on Instagram on Friday, April 12. “When I get sad, I like to remind myself that sadness passes like a season. I like to look at my blessings, my happiness, and always remembering that I have so many more good times to look forward to.”

In coping with loss or a difficult time, it is important to be present for your emotions and process, but also keep an eye on perspective and joyful moments. This photo, sent to me by a friend just now, was taken 3 years ago today. This is Rafa, I am like 5-6 months pregnant with Leonardo, and Carmen is off to the right. Peaceful, happy, full of love. When I get sad, I like to remind myself that sadness passes like a season. I like to look at my blessings, my happiness, and always remembering that I have so many more good times to look forward to.

The Living Clearly Method author added: “It is a balance of sitting with grief, as we don’t want to shove it away and not address it… but also not let it cloud how wonderful life is.”

The actress, who shares Carmen, 5, Rafael, 3, Leonardo, 2, and Romeo, 10 months, with her husband, Alec Baldwin, wrote this alongside a photo with her eldest son where she felt “peaceful, happy [and] full of love.”

Although she officially revealed that she had lost her fifth pregnancy on Tuesday, Hilaria posted a mirror selfie of her baby bump five days earlier and said she was “most likely experiencing a miscarriage.”

“The embryo has a heartbeat, but it isn’t strong, and the baby isn’t growing very much. So we wait,” she wrote at the time. “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.”

While this reveal was met with controversy, the Saturday Night Live star, 61, stood by Hilaria.

“My wife is kind and generous in her support of other women,” he wrote on Instagram that same day.
