In the heart-felt letter to her husband accompanied by black and white images of the couple in bed, she gushes, “
“To enter your world and become your person has been both a joy and an eye opening experience. How many wonderful moments, meeting incredible people doing amazing experiences and building a family. I am forever grateful. Every day”
This all seems like standard Hollywood fare. After all the celebrity yoga teacher could have told her husband all this at any time, maybe during one of these intimate moments that are pictured on the post? However, the purpose of going public with her love for her husband seems to be for a darker reason.
Later on in the letter, she hints at dark forces who are out to ruin her husband’s reputation by engaging in tactics to dehumanize her, which she describes as “another old tactic to go after the spouse of your enemy”. She describes this as “psychological torture”
“The darker part is seeing behind the curtain at how some of this ‘business’ can function and the blows and sacrifices that someone in the public eye takes for speaking up for what they believe and for helping others.
“Enemies of these missions seek to destroy you, in order to delegitimize your voice and purpose.”
The Baldwins do engage in charity work through the Hilaria and Alec Baldwin Foundation, yet this seems unlikely to have attracted hate from “darker forces” as Hilary claims.
However, The Baldwins are no strangers to controversy.
The Instagram post comes in the wake of the fatal shooting last year when Baldwin accidentally shot and killed cinematographer Halyna Hutchins on the set of his film Rust.
This incident still remains a mystery. Alec Baldwin was rehearsing a scene on 21st October, pulled out his gun and shot, fatally wounding Halyna Hutchins. Nobody knows how the live bullet got into the gun and even a year later, investigating authorities are still baffled. However, according to Santa Fe County Sheriff Alan Mendoza, Baldwin is still not “off the hook,” for the deadly incident.
In the meantime, Hilaria Baldwin has her own concerns. No stranger to controversy herself, she was “outed” after claiming to be of Spanish heritage when it actually transpired she was born and raised in Boston and that Spanish was not her native tongue as she claimed.
Hilaria Baldwin ended her Instagram post with further affirmations of her love and support
I don’t know the ending to any of our stories, but I do know that while we are living, I want you to be told time over time how much we see you and appreciate you. And we know that you are carrying quite a load, using the privileged place of your public voice for good.
Not everyone with your privilege chooses this path. And we know it’s hard. So many love you, AB, we are here for you to lean on and feel safe,”
The couple is expecting their seventh child, a girl, this fall, referring to the unborn child as “a bright spot in their lives.” Of course, we wish the couple well with their growing family but Hilaria Baldwin’s public letter to her husband and her assumed victimhood, never once acknowledges the true victim here; Halyna Hutchins who was killed in tragic circumstances while doing her job.
