“Stop about the hat,” the fitness guru captioned a May 2019 Instagram post of her son Romeo swimming with her husband, Alec Baldwin. “If you would like, I will invite you to my home and you can try to both put a hat on him and have him keep it on. You will be my honored guest. And OF COURSE he has sunscreen on. What is wrong with people that they expect the worst?”
In January 2020, the Living Clearly Method author wrote on her Instagram Story: “I can’t believe that when I post a photo of my kids with no jackets it starts such a controversy.” She pointed out that it was “nearly 70” degrees and her kids would “get sick from a virus and not” their wardrobe choices.
“When I get this kind of unsolicited advice I think, ‘Why don’t you come overland parent my children with your high standards and try to keep your cool,'” the fitness guru wrote on her March 2020 Instagram Story after being criticized for letting her kids use her phone. “It’s called picking battles. Can’t win them all. … I’m gonna add this to my list of mommy fails. Unable to completely keep my child away from my phone.”
In June 2020, Hilaria defended her decision to have a nanny for her four children. “That doesn’t mean that you don’t take care of your own kids,” she said on the “Mom School” podcast at the time. “It literally means I am also working. I work every single day. And for people to make you feel badly about that is not fair. Neither my family or Alec’s family live close. … It is OK to accept help, and there is no shame that other people should give you because of that.”
While many assume the former yoga instructor is “sitting with [her] feet up while other people parent” her four kids, Hilaria wrote via Instagram in August 2020 that she and her nanny tag team. “When one baby runs one way and another runs the other way, we look at each other and chase after one babe,” she explained. “It’s hectic!! But amazing and I feel so lucky for so many reasons. I also know that they grow up so fast and one day I’ll be able to rest again — I’m trying to be present and hold onto it for as long as possible.”Back to top
