Correction: On December 27, 2020, Hilaria Baldwin addressed “chatter online” surrounding her culture and identity. Hilaria clarified that she was born in Boston, Massachusetts and not Mallorca, Spain like her CAA Speaker’s biography previously stated prior to being updated. HOLA! USA’s original story published on May 4, 2018 noted that Hilaria was born in Spain and was raising her kids to speak her native language, Spanish. While Hilaria speaks to her children in Spanish, her statement on Instagram regarding where she was born means her native language, or language of the country where she was born, is not Spanish.

The Baldwins are back for the latest edition of HOLA! USA and this time as a party of six! Alec Baldwin and Hilaria Baldwin let us inside of their home once again for an exclusive meeting with their latest addition Romeo. Since the little one’s arrival in May, things have gotten a little crazier for the bunch, but in a good way. Hilaria, 34, and Alec, 60, are balancing home life with their children, Carmen, five, Rafael, three and two-year-old Leonardo, and their careers. And that juggling act in itself is another full-time job!
“It’s like one continuous thing,” yoga instructor Hilaria said. ”By 6 a.m. everybody’s up, and it’s hectic. I‘m in the bathtub with the kids, trying to get everybody ready.” The Baldwinitos are one team, and Hilaria’s top priority is making sure everyone makes it to work and school on time. ”Carmen is off to kindergarten, Rafa is going to preschool, and I’m with Leo and Romeo. I also work on a podcast.”

Alec and Hilaria’s tribe consist of four little personalities, who unsurprisingly take after their parents. “Alec and I are very, very different, but we‘re similar in some ways,” she shared. ”We’re both very dramatic; we’re very strong-willed; we’re kind of loud. I think that our kids, especially Carmen, are very much like us. With my husband, she likes to sit down and watch something. She has the capacity to be able to sit down and complete something— where I’ll do it if I have to, but I don’t want to.”
She continued: “Alec is very good at that. Our boys are climbing on everything—I feel that‘s very me.” With all of the milestones this year has brought the clan, one thing is important and that is maintaining traditions. The Spanish beauty and the Boss Baby actor feel it’s important to make sure their children have mastered both of their mother tongues.
“Our kids, especially the older ones, who speak more, are fully bilingual,” Alec said. ”My wife speaks Spanish in the house and Carmen is in a school which is a full language immersion.” He continued: ”The concern and the passion that my wife has—and me too—for two languages is essential. We make the utmost effort. This is a priority for my wife—Spanish is fundamental.”
