Hilaria Baldwin Returns To Social Media & Issues Apology Over Her Heritage Scandal
Hilaria Baldwin is back on social media following her heritage scandal last month.
The 37-year-old author and wife of Alec Baldwin wrote an apology to her fans, after it was revealed that she wasn’t born in Mallorca, Spain as many previously thought.
In actuality, she was born in Boston.
The news broke just after Christmas when a compilation video focused on her accent and social media users questioned if she even was Spanish. Following the discussions online about her heritage, Hilaria took an online break.
“I’ve spent the last month listening, reflecting, and asking myself how I can learn and grow. My parents raised my brother and me with two cultures, American and Spanish, and I feel a true sense of belonging to both,” she wrote in her first post on the platform in over a month. “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 went on, “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.”
Hilaria was the focus of many headlines after the truth was uncovered. Her stepdaughter, Ireland Baldwin, as well as many of her in-laws reacted to the news.
Before she went on a social media break, Hilaria did reveal the name she grew up with.
