Hilaria and Alec Baldwin 'welcomed their sixth child via SURROGATE'

Alec and Hilaria Baldwin welcomed their sixth child via surrogate, a source has revealed, just two days after the couple shocked the world with news of the baby's arrival - and six months after the yoga guru gave birth to their fifth child. 

The couple announced the surprise arrival of the baby girl on Monday evening, posting an image of the newborn with her mother and siblings - but sharing no other information about her identity or her birth, prompting some critics to accuse them of 'attention-seeking.' 

The announcement kicked off furious speculation over the circumstances of baby Lucia's birth, which led SNL star Alec, 62, to unleash a profanity-filled rant at Instagram users who urged him to reveal the identity of the child's mother while accusing him and his wife, 37, of sharing images of the baby girl as 'clickbait'.

Baldwin went on the angry tirade at Instagram trolls who questioned Lucia's paternity on Monday evening, telling one commenter to 'shut the f*** up' when they asked about the arrival of his youngest child.  

'Who’s the mother? She wasn’t pregnant. She gave birth six months ago,' one commenter wrote. 'If it was a surrogate just say that. If the baby was adopted just say that. If the baby was a product of an affair and you've decided to raise it with your wife just say that.

'If you don't want to say anything - why don't you both stop constantly posting and begging for clickbait. Just raise your 100 children in private.' 

In a since-deleted reply, Alec furiously clapped back, writing: 'You should shut the f*** up and mind your own business.' 

But though the actor refused to take the bait when questioned by Instagram commenters, a source has revealed to Today that Lucia was, in fact, welcomed via surrogate.

Revealed: Hilaria Baldwin has confirmed that and husband Alec have welcomed a sixth child - a baby daughter named Lucia - just six months after she gave birth to her son Eduardo

Fury: The SNL star told one critic to 'shut the f**k up' after they accused the couple of posting the photo of their baby as 'clickbait' - however he since appears to have deleted the comment

Speaking out: In other comment replies however, he claimed that 'America is fueled by hate' and said anyone who questions Hilaria's Spanish heritage is 'not very smart'  

He made the same comment to another user who wrote 'yikes' beneath the photo that he shared of his wife and their six children: Carmen, seven, Rafael, five, Leonardo, four, Romeo, two, Eduardo, six months, and newborn Lucia. 

'I believe that people should simply say "Congratulations" or just shut the f**k up. That’s it,' Alec wrote, before once again deleting the comment.  

In response to another user who questioned why Alec and Hilaria were facing so much criticism, he wrote that 'America is a country fueled by hate' and insisted that anyone who questions his wife's Spanish heritage scandal is 'not very smart'. 

Lucia, like her five older siblings, Eduardo, Romeo, Leonardo, Rafael, and Carmen, has been given a Spanish moniker - however unlike the other Baldwin children, the reveal of the newborn's name comes in the wake of furious controversy about Hilaria's fake Spanish heritage. 

It is not known whether Hilaria and Alec were planning for their new arrival when the scandal broke in December with a viral Twitter thread detailing the wellness expert's faux European background, and the couple has shared no other information about her birth, which comes just six months after Hilaria gave birth to their fifth child Edu.

The couple, who have been married since 2012, sparked furious speculation when they shared an image of Hilaria cradling the newborn baby girl alongside her five other children.

Hilaria posted the image on her Instagram account with the simple caption '7', while Alec opted for a Spanish-inspired caption, writing 'mi vida' alongside the image. 

In a teasing post shared on her Instagram Stories, the proud mom also asked her followers to count 'how many babies' they could see in the photo, giving them the option of choosing '5' or '6'.  

The latest addition to the brood is Alec and Hilaria's sixth child together - however the actor also has another daughter, 25-year-old model Ireland, with his ex-wife Kim Basinger.

New normal: Hilaria posted a photo of baby Lucia sleeping alongside her brother Edu on Tuesday morning - after joking that the couple's bed was 'getting rather crowded'

Unsurprisingly, the social media posts were met with intrigue - and even anger - from the couple's followers, many of whom urged the couple to share more information, and even criticized them over their handling of the reveal. 

Alec appears to have deleted his more profane responses, though this is hardly the first time he has come under fire for expletive-filled rants. 

When a commenter quipped, 'Like your wife being Spanish when she lived in Massachusetts her entire life. I take it her accent is fake as well? FRAUDS!' Alec replied: 'Go f**k yourself.'

In a video rant that month, he also said that Twitter is 'a lot of s***', adding: 'You have to kind of hack your way through the debris of Twitter. Twitter is just a vast orchard of cr**. 

This behavior goes back several years. In 2016, he was caught in a foul-mouthed tirade at a photographer trying to take photos of him in a public place.

'You're a piece of trash,' he yelled, along with several expletives. 'Stay away from my wife.' As the photographer tried to reason with the actor, Alec got in his face and yelled back at the top of his voice: 'Shut up! You're a piece of garbage!'

In 2018, he was arrested for allegedly punching a New Yorker who stole his parking spot in a expletive-filled outburst.

Sources say one of Alec's family members was holding the spot when Wojciech Cieszkowski, 49, of Pearl River, New York, driving a black Saab station wagon pulled into the spot, according to Page Six.

The two men got into an argument, and when Cieszkowski headed to the meter to pay, Baldwin allegedly bolted up to him and punched him. Police said the two pushed each other before Baldwin got aggressive.

A witness told DailyMail.com that Baldwin yelled 'd*** off' during the fight. Alec has denied punching Cieszkowski.

Again: Alec has lost temper in public on several occasions, and in December told one who called his wife a fraud to 'shut the f**k up' as well

While Alec has been responding to critics with colorful language this week, his wife is slowly sharing more details about the surprise arrival.

Hilaria also shared several images of Lucia settling into Baldwin family life, sharing one photo of Alec cradling the baby girl in his arm while helping daughter Carmen with her math homework. 

'Teaching the baby math homework and funny faces... welcome to being a Baldwin,' she captioned the snap. 

She later joked that the couple's 'bed is getting rather crowded', before posting another photo of baby Lucia sleeping soundly on the mattress alongside her brother Edu - while another of her siblings is seen snoozing on the floor. 

'Watching these three,' Hilaria wrote alongside the picture, before adding three hearts. 

Hilaria has only made a return to regularly posting on social media in recent weeks, after issuing an apology for faking her Spanish heritage following weeks of furious controversy over the scandal. Since her Instagram comeback, the comments on her posts have been turned off. 

The influencer, whose real name is Hillary Hayward-Thomas, finally said 'sorry' for the saga in a post shared to her Instagram account on February 5 - six weeks after a Twitter thread about her faux European background went viral. 

Hilaria stopped short of confessing she had misled people about her Spanish roots instead doubling down on her previous claims that she was raised 'with two cultures, American and Spanish' and that she feels 'a true sense of belonging to both'.  

Family: Lucia, which means 'light' in Spanish, has five older siblings - all of whom have Spanish-inspired names - Eduardo, Romeo, Leonardo, Rafael, and Carmen

Hint hint: Posting the image on her Instagram Stories, Hilaria teased followers by asking them to reveal 'how many babies they see' 

In a caption alongside a photo of her with Alec and their five children, she wrote: '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.

'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.

'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,' she said.

At the end of December, it emerged that Hilaria - who in the past claimed to have grown up in Majorca and spoke with a Spanish accent - actually spent her childhood in Beacon Hill, Boston, and went by Hillary.

It started with a single tweet on December 21 which read: 'You have to admire Hilaria Baldwin's commitment to her decade long grift where she impersonates a Spanish person'.

The woman then continued to post videos and proof of how Hilaria's accent has changed over the years. 

Quiet: In the past, Hilaria (pictured while pregnant with Edu) has been open about sharing her motherhood journey on Instagram, posting images from throughout all her pregnancies 

Candid: Hilaria even documented her two miscarriages on social media, revealing in April 2019 that she 'was most likely' losing her unborn child while sharing an image of herself in lingerie

Heartbreak: In November that same year, Hilaria suffered her second loss, and once again shared the devastating news on Instagram 

Several former classmates came forward to confirm that Hilaria was in fact raised in Weston, Massachusetts, by American parents without a hint of a foreign accent.

In the wake of the scandal, Hilaria took a break from social media and retreated to the Baldwins' home in East Hampton, where she was staying with her children, while Alec was renting a nearby property so that he could quarantine away from his family and commute back and forth to the city for work. 

Since apologizing for the scandal on social media, Hilaria has been sharing much more regular updates, frequently posting candid images and videos of life at home with Alec and the kids - however she made no hints that the couple were planning to welcome a sixth child into their brood. 

On Wednesday, she shared a sweet video of herself working out alongside her son Edu, one day after posting a clip of them cuddling in bed, describing the tot as her 'rainbow' - a term used to describe a child born after a mother suffers a miscarriage. 

Hilaria first revealed that she had lost her unborn baby in April 2019, when she took to social media to document her miscarriage in a series of very candid photos and videos, the first of which showed her posing in her underwear, alongside a caption which read: 'I want to share with you that I am most likely experiencing a miscarriage.' 

Hilaria went on to document subsequent doctors' appointments, and even shared selfies from her D&C procedure. 

In November of that same year, she revealed that she'd had a second miscarriage, four months into her pregnancy, once again sharing the news on Instagram alongside an image of herself and daughter Carmen.  

Nothing to see here! Since apologizing for her Spanish heritage scandal on February 5, Hilaria has shared regular family updates on Instagram - but didn't share any hints about a new arrival

'We are very sad to share that today we learned that our baby passed away at 4 months,' she wrote. 'We also want you to know that even though we are not ok right now, we will be. We are so lucky with our 4 healthy babies - and we will never lose sight of this.  

'I'm really devastated right now... I was not expecting this when I went to my scan today. I don't know what else to say.'

The couple then announced that they were expecting their fifth child in April 2020, however the arrival of a sixth baby is not something that either have addressed publicly, although Hilaria stated in November of last year that it 'felt very much' like they were 'done' expanding their family.

'It very much feels like we're done,' she told People one month after giving birth to Edu when asked if she was hoping to have more children.  

However the wellness expert admitted that she would never say never, joking that she had thought she was 'done' in the past - only for the couple to decide that they wanted to expand their family further. 

'Everybody's asking me this question,' she continued. 'I don't know. I've said in the past that I was done when I wasn't done.

'I think, right now, I'm so tired. And I feel, just with COVID, it's just insanity. Right now, during times of COVID, it very much feels like we're done.' 

She added that her children have all grown accustomed to 'new siblings coming in', revealing that they were already asking her 'when the next one is going to come'.  

But while Hilaria has previously been very open about her motherhood journey - documenting her pregnancy on Instagram, and sharing intimate details about both of her miscarriages - both she and Alec have kept the news of their youngest arrival very much under wraps.
