And now Hilaria – who has her children with her husband Alec Baldwin – has said that she misses her unborn baby every day, but still “thank you [her] Lucky stars ”that she was able to welcome Eduardo and Lucia after the tragedy.
In her Instagram story, she wrote: “Not a day goes by that I don’t miss her older sister, who we lost when we were 16 weeks old. Also, not a day goes by when I don’t thank my lucky stars that I have Eduardo Pau and Maria Lucia.
“The fact that these two feelings can exist simultaneously and so intensely in their polarity in me impresses me.”
Hilaria went on to share videos and photos of her “rainbow babies”.
She added, “My heart grew to love you all so much.”
The wellness guru and Alec greeted Lucia through a surrogate mother, and Hilaria previously said she felt so “lucky” to have more children after her miscarriage.
She said, “Our hearts are full of gratitude. The Baldwinitos longed so much for a little sister.
“Many of you may remember the loss of your sister at the age of 4 months at the end of 2019. Not a day goes by without our daughter causing pain. When I found out our baby had died, I told our children that their sister was coming, just not at that time. Nothing will ever replace them, but two wonderful souls have come into our lives and we are humble to know them.
“Our children have been brave in our time of tremendous sorrow – braver than us … and they have raised hope. Experiencing and accepting the ebb and flow of life is a challenge, but a reality that we all cannot help but receive and process. I learned that our children are often smarter than us and that their wisdom has guided us.
“Our rainbow baby Edu is such a blessing – we are overwhelmed by how lucky we are to have him. We live every day, connected and grateful for all the very special angels who helped bring Lucía into the world.
“María Lucía Victoria and Eduardo Pau Lucas: our babies who bring light into our lives – almost like twins, we love you so much. (sic) ”
