Hilaria Baldwin is talking out her surrogacy decision. On Sunday’s episode of her Witches Anonymous podcast, the joyful mom, 38, said her 20-month-old daughter Lucia is not “less” hers since she was delivered through a surrogate.
Nothing changed. People think I’m a worse mom, and she’s a worse daughter. “She’s as attached to me as my others,” she said of her 2021 baby girl.
“I don’t differentiate between my surrogate-born daughter and my other six children,” she said.
The yoga instructor chose a surrogate after two miscarriages in 2019 and said there are “many ways to become a parent.”
She said she was “shamed” for choosing surrogacy and that many made her feel “outcast.”
“We’re considered breeders in many ways—I had seven children—but I recognise the historical connection between women and breeding.”People think they have a right to talk about it if you can’t or don’t breed traditionally,” she said.
Hilaria said she and her surrogate had a “wonderful” relationship and “speak virtually every day.”
