Having said that, folks were incensed to hear that the youngest Baldwin had the same Spanish name as her siblings, Ilaria Catalina Irena Baldwin.
“Why is it okay that she is so obviously trying to speak Spanish? Why does she continue to try? Have they allowed it to affect them so much, someone questioned. Ilaria is an upbeat name that is originally Italian meaning “Hilary.”
Hilaria frequently updated her social media followers with photographs and information throughout her pregnancy.
As she described her experience as a mother of seven, Hilaria said, “When people question or comment, we frequently resort to ridiculous and extremely self-deprecating jokes on my part. It’s okay because I enjoy making fun of myself; it keeps me sane.”
All kidding aside, I’m thankful for this experience, she continued. I am all too familiar with the happiness and sorrow that being a mother entails.
I’ve come to respect and love all aspects of this amazing process, which I am so fortunate to experience repeatedly, including the fantastic, the challenging, the unpleasant, the miraculous, and the unknown.
