‘I didn’t take a photo of my whole family today,’ she admitted to her followers on social media. Here is Carmen and Marilu dancing in the supermarket.’ 

‘I want to tell you all how grateful I am for you. This has been one of a challenging year. I know for many, many of us…but I will only speak from personal experience right now. 

‘Sometimes I didn’t think I was gonna make it through. I want you to know how much you have helped me through some pretty dark struggles. Knowing you were there—such comfort. 

‘Yes, my children and my husband, my family and close friends have been invaluable…but YOU, I don’t get to express this face to face, due to the nature of social media and how far we all are…I SO want you to know and take in how grateful I am every day for you.

‘I miss our chats and the safety net of our community. I’m hoping, one day, we will get back there. One thing struggle has taught me is to say ‘I love you more’. It’s what all of this is all about, in my opinion. So, I love you so…with my whole, grateful soul. Happy gratitude day.’

The Baldwin family has kept a relatively low profile over the past month after Alec accidentally shot and killed Hutchins on set of the Western film on Oct. 21.

He now faces a looming lawsuit for the accidental shooting.

Baldwin was told the prop gun he was rehearsing with on set was ‘cold’, or safe to use, according to the Santa Fe county sheriff’s office.

But tragedy unfolded when he fired the weapon which turned out to be loaded with live rounds, killing Hutchins and injuring film director Joel Souza.

Earlier this year, Hilaria apologized for faking her Spanish heritage after it was revealed her real name was Hillary Hayward-Thomas and she was from Boston, not Majorca, Spain.   

She atoned on Instagram for misleading her followers and noted that she ‘should have been more clear’ about her past.

Hilaria insisted she was brought up ‘with two cultures, American and Spanish’ and feels ‘a true sense of belonging to both.’ 

Baldwin gave birth to Eduardo in September 2020 after suffering two miscarriages —and then welcomed Maria via surrogate in late February, a surprise announcement which an insider told People: ‘It’s no one’s business about a woman’s right to choose how and when she expands her family.’

Prior to welcoming Eduardo and MariLu, the couple — who have been married since 2012 — has Carmen, Rafael, Leonardo and Romeo.
