Alec Baldwin's wife Hilaria Baldwin is the subject of plastic surgery speculations on the internet. She's also at the center of controversy over Spanish speaking accent and her parents.
Hilaria Baldwin is an American podcast host, blogger, and yoga instructor. She is a part of the Baldwin family ever since she tied the knot with Alec Baldwin in 2012.
She is the co-owner of a string of yoga centers called Yoga Vida in New York. Additionally, Baldwin launched an exercise DVD and a wellness book.
Recently, Baldwin is at the forefront of plastic surgery speculations. Is there much truth to these allegations? Let's find out.
Hilaria Baldwin's Face - Plastic Surgery or Beauty Routine?
Aside from yoga, Hilaria Baldwin enjoys running and she's a huge believer that you should exercise before some sort of lesson—whether it's a yoga session or a toning class.
She looks pretty fit, no doubt. However, her appearance raises questions about potential plastic surgery. Unsurprisingly, she denies going under the knife and credits her looks to her beauty routine.

Speaking of her beauty routine, she said:
It’s all about being extremely efficient and doing as minimal as possible. Have you ever heard of the book Cheaper by The Dozen? In school growing up, I remember having to read this book. I don’t remember that much about the book except that they had a lot of kids and it was kind-of wild and crazy.
But, I do remember this sort-of quest for efficiency—and I laugh all the time because I never expected to have so many kids. If you asked me any of this ten years ago, I’d be like OK, good joke, I will never have kids!
But, she recalls this section of the book talks about the most convenient way to use a soap bar on someone's body in the bathtub.

She claims it's pretty funny because she just had the bathtub, cleaning her teeth, putting on her clothes—everything needs to be fully equipped because it's like a conveyor belt.
In the mornings and evenings, that's where parents usually have the most insane moment, because that's when someone has to get ready or put on pajamas.
Refuting plastic surgery, she continued:
So, for my personal beauty routine I wake up, I brush my teeth, I wash my face, I have a couple different creams that I put on, and then I put on a little-bit of eyeliner, I curl my eyelashes, I put mascara on and that’s it. [Laughs]
But even when I have to go shoot, I usually do my own makeup and I’ve gotten it down to a ten-minute minimum of being able to put my makeup on.
As for the products she's been using for years, she revealed Tata Harper skincare and Lancôme Doll Lashes Mascara. She is quite adamant she's never gone under the knife, but some fans claim she's had Botox injections, at the very least, as a part of her plastic surgery endeavors.
Meanwhile, Baldwin does not use products with a lot of additives and she feels like those are the things most of us are unfamiliar with.
Hilaria reckons a lot of these companies would insert organic things in their items and claim it comes from a particular root that sounds amazing.
She doesn't like phenoxyethanol, which is the one she's allergic to. She's beginning to see the products that appear to be made without parabens or sulfates that also state 'no phenoxyethanol.'
It's funny since her dermatologist says this allergy is so normal, and people, particularly women, will still blame themselves for a variety of reasons, and the next thing they blame themselves for pimples.
Often it's their hormones, or tension, or what they're consuming, or the environment—it can be numerous things. But it's still something people put on their skin a lot of times.
Speaking about her in-office treatment, Hilaria Baldwin said:
While I’m in the child-bearing years, I’m trying to keep my dermatology business as simple as possible. I think [injectables and treatments] will be something I’m interested in once I decide for sure that I’m done having kids.
Until that point, I’m just trying to keep my body as clean as possible. I did get my eyebrows microbladed and I loved that, that was wild. I feel like that changed my face a lot in terms of the definition of my eyebrows. If somebody has nice eyebrows, they don’t have to wear as much makeup.
No matter how often Hilaria Baldwin's plastic surgery speculations make rounds on the internet, she insists her appearance is completely natural.
Hilaria Baldwin is at the Centre of Spanish Accent Controversy
Hilaria Baldwin has been trying to diminish allegations that she's pretended to carry a Spanish accent for years—by posting a blabbering video that blames "labels" and the media for seemingly getting her facts wrong.
In an Instagram clip that is well over 7 minutes, the wife of actor Alec Baldwin made it abundantly clear that although she was born in Boston, her "nuclear family" is living in Spain.
Hilaria admitted in the video,
Yes, I am a white girl. And let’s be very clear that Europe has a lot of white people in there, and my family is white.
Ethnically, I’m a mix of many, many, many things.
The mother of five continued,
Culturally, I grew up with the two cultures. It really is simple as that.
In addition, the well-renowned yoga instructor debunked lying about her heritage—even though her agency bio claims she was born on the island of Mallorca, Spain, and old video recordings have gained notoriety displaying her interacting with a Spanish accent and dawdling over the word "cucumber."
I’ve always said what is true. I’ve always said where I come from, and people want to label you and I have dark hair, I speak two languages.
Recently, in Leni Briscoe's tweets, she was accused of pulling out a decade long con game where she imitates a Spanish woman.
Baldwin then shifted the blame to reporters for getting her story wrong.
In the past, I would get very frustrated when reporters would report this or report that, and I’d try to be very clear — and they’d be like, ‘Oh, you were born in Spain.'
Hilaria also maintained she never said her mom, Dr. Kathryn Hayward, was from Spain, even though her IMDb page indicates otherwise.
Talking about her parents who relocated to Mallorca in 2011 after a lengthy tenure in New England, she said:
They want to say that I’ve said that my mother is Spanish. My family all live there, and they all speak Spanish and English but I’ve never said my mother is Spanish.
Hilaria clarified she would "use the name Hilaria" with her loved ones and whenever she was in Spain.
It's not known when or how frequently she visited the nation—but she claimed she later switched her name to "Hilaria" to clear up any confusion.
A handful of years before I met Alec, I decided to consolidate the two, because it was so many different documents with so many different things.
While she was a student at the Cambridge School in Weston, Massachusetts, the workout enthusiast reinforced her argument in a recently reappeared interview that she had come from Spain to join New York University.
She said in the Instagram clip,
I was moving a lot but I came here when I was 19 years old to go to college.
Hilaria—who puzzled followers when her Spanish accent was nowhere to be noticed in the Instagram video—explained the variations in her accent was due to the fact that she often mixes two languages.
If I’ve been speaking a lot of Spanish, I tend to mix them or if I’m speaking a lot of English, I mix that, it’s one of those things I’ve always been a bit insecure about.
Hilaria Baldwin added she's raising her five kids to speak both languages.
Photos of Hilaria Baldwin's Post-Baby Body Previously Sparked Plastic Surgery Accusations
Hilaria Baldwin is well-known for working tirelessly on her body.
The yoga guru, who is married to famous actor Alec Baldwin, with whom she shares five children, frequently gives an inside glimpse at her routines and her healthy lifestyle.
And yet, people were shocked when she shared a photo that displayed how much her body had improved in the four-and-a-half months after the birth of son Romeo in May 2018.
Most of the comments applauded Baldwin on her success, demanding to know what she's eating in a day. They were asking about the precise fitness schedule that she is opting to keep herself fit.
Some of them, however, began accusing Hilaria of modifying the picture or having undergone plastic surgery for her appearance.
Baldwin made it quite clear the bikini pictures she uploaded were all genuine.
She responded to the one critic accusing photoshop:
Believe what you will. I can barely get email straight, let alone use some fancy photoshop. I don't even use filters. Just the brighten feature to show the pic better. But…as I said: you do you…you believe what makes you happy. In the end, it changes nothing.
As for her chest region, Baldwin stated she has never performed cosmetic enhancements.
It’s called breastfeeding. I may choose that route one day when I’m out of babies…but for now they are real.
Some viewers alleged Baldwin of making other mothers feel bad about themselves and seemed unhealthy in the most recent picture at the time.
Hilaria is a veteran when it comes to coping with social media naysayers, but it certainly won't slow her down. Since the birth of her youngest, she has kept track of her fitness achievements on Instagram.
We're assuming her answer to the haters still extends: "Just move on to somewhere else."
