Hilaria Baldwin commemorates meeting husband Alec ’10 years ago today’ with heartfelt Instagram post… after returning to social media following fake Spanish heritage scandal
- Hilaria took a six-week-long break from Instagram in the wake of her Spanish heritage scandal, which saw her face accusations that she faked her background
- She returned to the social media app on February 5, when she apologized for not being ‘clear’ enough when speaking about her upbringing
- Hilaria – whose real name is Hillary Hayward-Thomas – defended herself however, saying she has ‘a deep connection to two cultures’
She returned to Instagram earlier this month after taking a six-week social media break to recoup from her now infamous fake Spanish heritage scandal.
And Hilaria Baldwin continued on her path to normalcy on Thursday as she shared a heartfelt post to commemorate the 10 year anniversary of meeting her husband Alec.
‘We met each other 10 years ago today…it started off in a restaurant on an unseasonably warm night…’ began the 37-year-old yoga instructor, who shared a sweet snapshot of herself and the 62-year-old actor with her following.

‘…now, 5 million children in, it’s snowing and we are laying on Carmen’s floor, covered in her dolls, waiting+watching for the Mars Rover landing
‘…ps: he’s converting 152cm to inches-who even knows why,’ concluded Hilaria, who continued to give her 879,000 followers a glimpse at life in the Baldwin household on her Instagram Story.
She uploaded a photo of herself and Alec lying on the floor of their living room and smiling for the camera as their daughter Carmen, seven, erupted in laughter between them.

To close out the family oriented Instagram Story, the Boston-born stunner shared a snap of Carmen cradling her newborn brother Eduardo in her lap with the caption: ‘Our crowd is growing’
Hilaria and Alec, who have been married since 2012, welcomed their fifth child together, son Eduardo, in September of last year, with the yoga guru documenting her growing baby bump all the way up until her water broke.
Despite being an open book on social media with the daily workings of her life at home with Alec and their five young children, Hilaria was exposed late last year for seemingly misrepresenting her ‘Spanish’ heritage for over a decade.

After the scandal broke, Hilaria decided to virtually disappear from social media towards the latter end of December, with her return to Instagram taking place on February 5.
She further cemented her return by flooding her followers timelines with Valentine’s Day related posts on Sunday, including a black-and-white snap of herself and her husband lying down and cuddling.
In her caption, Hilaria thanked the SNL star for being her ‘rock’ during ‘challenging’ times, while joking that Alec is also a ‘pain in the [a**]’.
‘Through the amazing times, the challenging ones, all the many memories and tiny people we have made in between, thank you for being my rock, my courage, my joy, and my forever valentine,’ she wrote.
Family outing: Hilaria made her first return to Instagram since apologizing earlier this month for her Spanish heritage controversy as she and Alec took their kids to a beach

‘Ok…this was so mushy and I can’t help but be me: you are my pain in the [a**] too. I love you.’
The gushing post comes just a few weeks after it was revealed that the couple were living in separate houses in the Hamptons – with actor Alec revealing that he was quarantining away from his family while commuting into New York City for work.
Alec was staying in a rented house in Amagansett – an upmarket neighborhood that is located around a mile away from his East Hamptons estate, where his wife and children have been staying since she was first accused of faking her European background.
A source told Page Six that he rented a second home in the Hamptons so that he can quarantine away from his family while he continues to travel into the city for work.
It is unclear whether he is still using the property – however a second post shared by Hilaria over the weekend would suggest that Alec has returned to his East Hamptons estate to live with his wife and children once again.
Letting loose: Hilaria set the sped-up clip to electronic dance music as they had a ‘Baldwinito dance party’
After sharing her heartfelt tribute to her husband, Hilaria also shared a funny video of the couple dancing in the snow with their five children, using the Spanish diminutive of their name – Baldwinito – while joking that Alec was trying to copy their son’s moves.
‘We had a Valentine’s Day freezing Baldwinito dance party on the beach…Alec is trying to learn Romeo’s moves,’ she wrote alongside the clip, which saw the SNL star wearing a face mask – perhaps an indication that he is still commuting into the city and is taking extra precautions as a result.
Hilaria – who went mask-free – kept warm in a long dark green puffer coat with black leggings and brown cowboy boots.
Hilaria held her youngest son, Eduardo, while Alec danced around with two of the older boys.

Following her late-December departure from Instagram, Hilaria returned to the social media site on February 5, sharing a portrait of the whole family lying on the floor while addressing the controversy over her misrepresenting herself as a Spanish woman.
‘I’ve spent the last month listening, reflecting, and asking myself how I can learn and grow,’ she began her caption.
‘My parents raised my brother and me with two cultures, American and Spanish, and I feel a true sense of belonging to both. The way I’ve spoken about myself and my deep connection to two cultures could have been better explained — I should have been more clear and I’m sorry,’ she continued.
‘I’m proud of the way I was raised, and we’re raising our children to share the same love and respect for both. Being vulnerable and pushing ourselves to learn and grow is what we’ve built our community on, and I hope to get back to the supportive and kind environment we’ve built together.’
Setting the record straight: Hilaria returned to Instagram on February 5 to apologize and address the controversy over her misrepresenting herself as a Spanish woman
Following the February 5 post, Hilaria began posting cute photos of her children, and Alec has also appeared with them, but her Valentine’s Day posts were her first appearances on Instagram since her apology.
The original heritage controversy began shortly after Amy Schumer poked fun at an Instagram post from Hilaria in which she held her baby son Eduardo while showing off her unbelievably trim post-baby body.
But Hilaria’s reaction video, which featured a suspiciously spotty ‘Spanish’ accent that seemed to disappear at times, led social media sleuths to uncover that she had been born in Boston, not Majorca, as had been listed online in some places.

The actor had to wash some clothes, but he needed some expert help from his wife to figure out the high-tech washing machine.
‘I took these photos to document for myself me teaching Alec how to use the washing machine etc while he was in the city working…’ she wrote.

Success! But eventually Alec figured out how to get his laundry cleaned
One photo showed a closeup of her husband just missing the correct button, which she was ‘trying to get him to press.’
‘Eduardo felt my pain,’ she joked in a closeup of the tot crying.
But eventually Alec figured out how to get his laundry cleaned.
‘Even Alec realized how… um… yeah…’ Hilaria wrote, adding a cartoon speech bubble at the bottom reading, ‘just press the right [cursing emoji] button, honey.’
