Hilaria Baldwin recently took to Instagram to clap back at trolls judging her children on their skin tone, allegedly claiming Baldwin was not their mother. The fitness instructor shared a snap of her youngest daughter, Maria Lucia, on her Instagram story calling out the haters:
“I know... I know, sleuths... my skin is darker and my kids’ is lighter. Yes, they are mine. Trying to keep up with all these ideas… I have to say you have quite a bit of time on your hands.”
The latest drama comes months after Hilaria Baldwin’s controversy surrounding her heritage. Last year, the 37-year-old was accused of alleged cultural appropriation after a Twitter user made a thread claiming Baldwin “faked” her Spanish heritage.
Social media users pointed out that Hilaria Baldwin was born Hillary Lynn Hayward-Thomas and further scrutinized her accent. They also stated that the fitness trainer was born in Boston, Massachusetts instead of Mallorca, Spain as mentioned on the official website of her agency.
In response, Hilaria Baldwin shared a lengthy Instagram post explaining that she was raised with both American and Spanish cultures. She talked about feeling a “true sense of belonging” to both the countries and their respective cultures.
Following the controversy, the mother-of-six welcomed her youngest child with husband Alec Baldwin, through surrogacy in March 2021. Maria Lucia was born six months after Hilaria Baldwin gave birth to her fifth child, Eduardo Baldwin.
