Hilaria Baldwin – wife of Alec Baldwin and co-founder of Yoga Vida – will be expecting a baby girl in August. The 29-year-old mom-to-be recently shared to Fit Pregnancy her desire for a natural childbirth and pregnancy cravings.
On natural childbirth: “Right now, I want to do it naturally. That’s not to say there’s something wrong with the epidural, but that’s the way I was raised — I’m a pretty natural person. But if it does get to the point where I am screaming for the epidural, I have no problems with that. We’ll see where it goes.”
On her pregnancy diet and cravings: “No cravings or indulgences, which has pluses and minuses. The pluses are I’m eating really well — I haven’t had extreme weight gain at all. I’ve gained weight — my doctor is happy with where I am.
In the beginning, I wanted pineapple, but it wasn’t, “I need pineapple now.” It’s more what feels good going down. I’ve found that I’ve had more aversions to food. I could eat a whole plate of kale before; now, no. I really like miso soup — I ordered it the other night, took one sip and was like, “Get it away from me right now.” The other night was the first time I asked Alec to get me food in the middle of the night. I couldn’t eat a lot of dinner and at 2 a.m. I said, “I need to eat, now.” He brought melon and almonds … his choice.”
