Llast week a Twitter sleuth sketched out how Hilaria Baldwin, the influential wife of the actor (and sometimes SNL star) Alec Baldwin, perpetrated “a long period of flu during which she masquerades as a Spaniard.
The user, who goes through the handle @lenibriscoe, shared a number of damning ‘Hilaria’ videos, taken from a Hello america appearance where she employee spanish accent has a Today show stop in which she couldn’t remember the English word for “cucumber”.
Further posts showed Hilaria’s mother discussing her childhood in Longmeadow, Massachusetts, and numerous articles have highlighted how she had spent most of her career practicing medicine in Massachusetts, where she had been “Associate Physician at Massachusetts General Hospital and assistant professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School “until she” retired from both positions in 2012, “according to MassLive. (In one video interview she said she moved to Mallorca, Spain, in 2011, the same year Hilaria started dating Alec.) An obituary from Hilaria’s grandfather from his father’s side stated that he was a American with roots in the country that “predated the American Revolution,” while a marriage announcement stated that his grandfather’s first wife (and mother of their children) was from Nebraska.
Hilaria Baldwin’s CAA speaker page claims she was born in Mallorca, Spain, as are her IMDb biography and Wikipedia page. She said on a podcast earlier this year: “I moved here [to America] when I was 19 to go to NYU from… my family lives in Spain, they live in Mallorca, ”adding,“ I didn’t know about pop culture. She graced the cover of Hola! magazine, a Spanish-language publication based in Madrid, where she was identified as a Spanish person in the interview and his press release. Alec Baldwin has repeatedly designated her as “Spanish” online. And she did a number of appearances in Latina magazine, which it is promoted with enthusiasm (Spain is do not part of Latin America, by the way), and has referred to Spain as his “home”.
If that wasn’t enough, her five young children with Baldwin all have Spanish first names.
It appears Hilaria’s real name is Hillary Hayward-Thomas, according to her old MySpace page and those who claim to be his old classmates. She attended private Cambridge School in Weston, Massachusetts, and in her main directory is listed as “Hillary Hayward-Thomas”:
Nexis research has revealed that her voter registration in New York has both the names “Hilaria L. Baldwin” and “Hillary Hayward-Thomas”.
In light of the speech on Twitter, Hilaria took to Instagram to explain her side of the story. “The first thing I told my husband was that I was born in Boston,” she says. “I spent a large part of my childhood in Spain. My nuclear family lives in Spain and has lived there for a long time. And I came here – I moved around a lot, but I came here when I was 19 to go to college.
She continued: “I never said my mom was Spanish, my family is a big mix of so many different things… I don’t really understand why this is becoming so important. I want to take it seriously, but I also don’t want it to be all of a sudden I’m apologizing for who I am. Because at this point, I start to feel that I am under attack for who I am, and that no answer is the right answer.
“It looks like Hilaria’s real name is Hillary.“
Alec Baldwin also took to Instagram and, over the course of the winding eight minutes, appeared to deny credit for the controversy surrounding Hilaria.
“Most of what has been said, and – again, I don’t want to list what these things are – is wrong,” he asserted. “And some of them are so spectacularly wrong … As much as it hurts, the only thing I can do is talk to half the audience or that part of the audience that understands what I mean when I say, “Consider the source. ‘Consider the source. ”
Today, it’s still possible that Hilaria Baldwin spent a lot of time in Spain as a child and had a fondness for Spanish culture, but it doesn’t seem likely that she is Spanish. (Her New York Times the wedding announcement says she “grew up in Boston and Spain.”)
In a bizarre twist, the first person who seems to have questioned Hilaria Baldwin on all of this is none other than Geneviève Sabourin, Alec Baldwin’s stalker. In 2012, Sabourin tweeted: “Alec Baldwin marries Hilaria TRUE name: Hilary Hayward-Thomas.LIED call 911 with her fake name. She was ultimately convicted of tracking down Alec Baldwin and sentenced to six months in prison.
