Can we get a slow clap for Hilaria Baldwin please?
The wife of Alec Baldwin gave birth to her third child on Monday.
To be even more specific and impressive, the wife of Alec Baldwin gave birth to her third child in about three years on Monday.
She and the actor welcomed a little boy named Leonardo Angel Charles in New York City.
Fast forward one day – yes, one day! – and Baldwin stripped down to her underwear for a selfie we can’t imagine many other women being willing to take.
“I took this yesterday when Leonardo was about 24 hours old,” the 32-year old yoga teacher wrote. “I did the same thing right after [second son]Rafael was born.”
It’s true. She did.
In that case, however, Hilaria waited four days before posting the selfie below:
In both cases, Baldwin is standing in front of a mirror, her belly very much exposed.
We’ve seen models and other women flaunt their impressive, sleek post-baby bodies six or eight weeks after giving birth in the past.
But it’s hard to remember anyone doing it as soon as Hilaria is here. And it’s important to note:
She isn’t showing off how much weight she has lost since becoming a mother. Quite the opposite, in fact.
“It always makes me a bit nervous to do something like this,” she added on Wednesday.
“But I feel that in the age of such strong body shaming, I want to do all that I can to normalize a real body and promote healthy self esteem.”
What a great message, right?
“Many of you know that I love to show the process of life’s experiences on the body and I am a firm believer in how a good diet and the right balance of exercise make us happy, healthy, and strong.
“So from here on, I want to dedicate the majority of my #366daysoflivingclearly #hilarialcm daily posts to getting back in shape and I invite you to do it with me.
“Common questions last time were: Did I have a c section?: No, I pushed him out Where are all the pads for bleeding?: I took them out briefly to snap this pic as there is a limit to how much you need to see.
“Where am I?: in the hospital room bathroom #glamour Oh, and no filter. Just brightened it up a bit.”
You have to admire Baldwin’s overall attitude here, don’t you?
And you also have to love the photo she added to Instagram of her daughter, Carmen, meeting her new brother for the first time.
It’s so frickin cute!!!!!!!!!
