Pregnant Hilaria Baldwin Calls Criticism Over Having Nanny 'Not Fair': 'I Work Every Single Day'
Hilaria Baldwin has been distancing herself socially with husband Alec Baldwin for months and teaching her four children at home - and she is finally approaching the finish line.
"I've never been so excited when a semester is over," she joked recently when she appeared on the Mom School podcast's Wednesday episode.
Mom Brain's 36-year-old fitness trainer and podcast co-host admitted to being incredibly careful in the past few months since the onset of the US corona virus, saying, "We're super, super paranoid when it comes to being sick to become."

"They always say over 60 that you have to be worried and [Alec] just turned 62 and I'm pregnant and your immune system isn't good when you're pregnant," added Hilaria, sons Romeo Alejandro David, 2 , shares Leonardo Ángel Charles (3½) and Rafael Thomas (5) on Wednesday and daughter Carmen Gabriela (6½) with Alec. The Saturday Night Live actor is also the father of 24-year-old daughter Ireland.

"I had to go with a protective suit [see my doctor] - literally my hair is covered, protective glasses; I'm the weird one," she says of her routine prenatal visit. "[My doctor] said: 'You will probably work with a mask.' We'll have COVID tested there ... hopefully [Alec] can be there, [but] maybe not. I don't know what the situation will be. "

Hilaria is expecting another baby in September after suffering two miscarriages every seven months last year. "What happened last year changed me in certain things," she says of her losses. "I loved to focus on the gender of the baby ... but at the moment I am very slow with this experience and am very careful."
In April, she heartily recognized her second daughter's due date and partially said, "I think about you every day and I wish so much that our path would have been different."
"Those are little blessings," she tells Mom School of her children. "With the grief I have had and before, I had this gratitude that I live with every day for the happiness I feel."
"I'll have my moments," Hilaria admits. "To be especially pregnant when the kids destroy me all day - and they don't understand that they're babies! And I'm not a victim. I chose to have all of these kids really close together. I take responsibility for it It's hard, but I enjoy it so much. It's never a burden for me. "
"I look at my children, and even if they drive me crazy - and trust me, it happens - and even if I lose control ... I just take a deep breath and think of this little person who is my little person and how we get to that bond, this amazing relationship, and then I kind of relax, "she adds.
Your healthy perspective is maintained through consistent self-care and the excuse to ask for help. After a reasonable quarantine period, Hilaria says that she and her family "have rented a place nearby so our nanny can come and help us."
"It's so interesting with the whole nanny talk," she tells Mom School. "People will write to you and say, 'Ugh, she has a nanny' - but that doesn't mean that you don't take care of your own children. It literally means that I work too. I work every day. And it's not fair when people make you feel bad. "
"Neither my family nor Alec's family live nearby," continues Hilaria. "At the moment my youngest children are 2, 3 and 4 years old and I have a 7 year old. It is okay to accept help and it is no shame that other people should give you about it."
Her Instagram often shows how her brood helps tidy up after (mostly vegan) meals, and the mother of four tells that "[Alec] does the dishes every day." His other domestic duties include what he calls a "toy patrol", namely "when we go out to our garden and play with the kids ... he is very obsessed with" the lawn mower will break it open "[and]" this will be in the pool filter to get stuck. '""
At the end of the school year, Hilaria hopes that things will normalize again - and as for other babies: "We'll see," she says. "Hey, you know what? If we have another boy, I owe my daughter a little sister."
