Hilaria Baldwin’s Early Life
Hilaria Baldwin was born Hilaria Lynn Thomas, on January 6, 1984, in Mallorca, Spain. She is of Spanish–American origin, as her mother is Spanish, while her father is American. Hilaria was raised in both Spain and Boston, United States.

She graduated with a B.A. degree in art history and dance from ‘New York University.’
Meeting Alec Baldwin: Marriage, Four Kids, and Two Miscarriages
Hilaria met Alec Baldwin (also Alexander Rae Baldwin III) in February 2011, at a restaurant in New York named ‘Pure Food and Wine,’ on Irving Place.
It is believed Alec had come up to her, taken her hand, and said, “I must know you,” after which they interacted with each other. In an interview later, Hilaria claimed they had not kissed for almost 6 weeks after they started dating. They would just have dinner and shake hands, after which Alec would drop her home. Hilaria is 26 years junior to Alec, but the age gap has never affected their relationship.
On June 30, 2012, after being engaged for 2 months, Hilaria and Alec got married at the ‘Basilica of St. Patrick’s Old Cathedral’ in New York City.
Alec was previously married to actor Kim Basinger, from 1993 to 2002, and has a daughter with her: actor and model Ireland Baldwin.

In April 2019, Hilaria declared she was pregnant with their fifth child. Unfortunately, she miscarried later and announced it through an ‘Instagram’ post.
In September 2019, Hilaria announced that she was pregnant again. However, in November 2019, the couple revealed Hilaria had suffered another miscarriage.
Nevertheless, the same month, the couple took the pain in their stride and made their first public appearance together after the second miscarriage, attending the ‘American Museum of Natural History’s annual event. At the event, Alec was quoted saying, “We’re going to have another one, just not now,” speaking about his wish to have another child with Hilaria.
