So this was out of left field. If you ever found yourself calling Alec Baldwins wife Hillary instead of Hilaria, turns out you were right.
The 36 year old wife of actor Alec confessed to her Instagram followers that her real name is actually Hillary. And that she wasn’t born in Spain, as purported, but rather Boston. Saying she’s ‘a white girl’ and that she spent only ‘some of’ her childhood in Spain.
Hilaria’s biography on her agency’s speakers site states that she was born on the island of Majorca and raised in Boston, without specifying a timeline for her upbringing. In interviews over the years Hilaria has indicated that she moved from Spain to the US when she was 19 to attend New York University.
The influencer was forced to issue the rambling seven-minute video Sunday amid an online frenzy days after a woman tweeted: ‘You have to admire Hilaria Baldwin’s commitment to her decade long grift where she impersonates a Spanish person.’
In the next few days, several videos of Hilaria’s past TV appearances resurfaced showing her commitment to a Spanish accent, including one where she appeared to forget the English word for ‘cucumber’.
Additional posts revealed that Hilaria’s mother discussed growing up in Longmeadow, Massachusetts, where she spent most of her career practicing medicine.
Now it has emerged Hilaria, who was actually born Hillary Hayward-Thomas, attended exclusive $64,900-a-year The Cambridge School of Weston in Massachusetts.
The whole thing is crazy. How do people think no one will come forward. Everyone who knew you growing up… I mean I guess she just figured no one had so far… We’ll stay on this.
