Hilaria Baldwin has announced her new baby daughter is named Lucia.

The 37-year-old, who is married to 30 Rock actor Alec Baldwin, shared the news on social media, just six months after giving birth to son Eduardo in September 2020.

On Tuesday, she revealed the name of her newborn daughter on Instagram, alongside an image of her sleeping,

Ms Baldwin wrote: "We are so in love with our daughter, Lucia. Just like your brothers and sisters, you are a dream come true".

The couple are also parents to sons Romeo, 2, Leonardo, 4, Rafael, 5, and daughter Carmen, 7.

Mr Baldwin is also father to daughter Ireland, 25, with ex-wife Kim Basinger.

The yoga instructor made the surprise announcement of Lucia’s arrival on Monday when she shared a picture of the newborn amongst her siblings, captioned "7" with a red heart emoji.

In 2019, the couple suffered a miscarriage four months into the pregnancy. They had already lost another child earlier that year.

Ms Baldwin previously sparked controversy over allegedly faking her Spanish heritage.

She was engulfed by a social media storm over Christmas after it was claimed she had spent years faking a Spanish accent.

In one viral clip, Ms Baldwin appeared to struggle to recall the English word for cucumber. It later emerged she was born Hillary Hayward-Thomas in Boston to American parents.

Late last year at the height of the controversy, Ms Baldwin accused critics of "misrepresenting" her and told the New York Times there is a "difference between hiding and creating a boundary".

She said her American parents loved Spain and took her there on holiday from an early age, creating deep ties to the country.
