Standing firm. Pregnant Hilaria BaldwinResponded to critics questioning her size and that of her husband Alec Baldwin‘s family.
“When people ask or comment, we often go to silly and very self-deprecating jokes on my part,” the yoga instructor, 38, wrote via Instagram on Tuesday, August 30. “I love to laugh at myself — so it’s all good … keeps me sane. All jokes aside, however, I am grateful for this experience.”
The Massachusetts native continued: “I know too well the joys and the losses, the beauty and the heartache, that motherhood brings. I have learned to respect and embrace the wonderful, the hard, the uncomfortable, the magical, and the unknown of this incredible process I am so blessed to experience again and again.”

Ireland wondered why strangers care so much about Ireland’s feelings regarding her siblings. “I get countless messages from people who are kind of alarmingly obsessed with my father and his family,” the model wrote via Instagram in April. “I think a lot of people assume my take on any of this, well here it is for free — it’s none of my business. … I don’t care.”
The New York Film Academy graduate went on to say that she’s happy with her life with boyfriend André Allen Anjos and their dogs.
“I smoke weed, I eat good food and I mind MY own business,” Ireland continued. “I am so grateful and lucky to be where I am. I am grateful to all who have sent me support and kind words. To those that still have a negative opinion of me, stick around.”
