Hilaria Baldwin took to Instagram on Friday for a lengthy post to thank fans for their support after she revealed that she is expecting to lose her baby.

In a heartbreaking post on Thursday, the 35-year-old star (who has four children with husband Alec Baldwin) detailed how she was sharing the news that she was "most likely suffering a miscarriage" in an attempt to help remove the stigma surrounding losing a baby.

On Friday, she assured fans she was doing OK and thanked them for their support and for sharing their own stories.

"I want to assure you that I know I will be ok," she wrote, alongside a photo of her with her children. "I have perspective to understand sadness and loss in the grand scheme of things. Emotionally I am processing it all ... being able to be open with you has been extremely healing. I was very nervous to share, and am so relieved that it was received with such love. I am grateful that you listened and I’m grateful that I have these tiny partners to go through this with."

"I don't know what I would do without my community," Baldwin continued. "Thank you for making my world a brighter place and for your sharing. I know that you didn't have to and am humbled and honored by your openness. I don't know about you, but I find it extremely comforting to know that I am not alone on this difficult journey ❤️ #neveralone."

Baldwin also took to her Instagram Stories to address negative comments she had received from some followers. “I don’t care if you are one day pregnant or nine months pregnant, you start to develop a connection as soon as you know that you’re pregnant,” she said in response to a social media user saying, “Oh it doesn’t matter cause it’s the first trimester.”

According to Thursday’s post, Baldwin’s baby has a heartbeat but “isn’t growing very much,” and the chances are “very small” that she will carry the little one to full term.

I want to share with you that I am most likely experiencing a miscarriage. I always promised myself that if I were to get pregnant again, I would share the news with you guys pretty early, even if that means suffering a public loss. I have always been so open with you all about my family, fitness, pregnancies...and I don’t want to keep this from you, just because it isn’t as positive and shiny as the rest. I think it’s important to show the truth...because my job is to help people by being real and open. Furthermore, I have no shame or embarrassment with this experience. I want to be a part of the effort to normalize miscarriage and remove the stigma from it. There is so much secrecy during the first trimester. This works for some, but I personally find it to be exhausting. I’m nauseous, tired, my body is changing. And I have to pretend that everything is just fine—and it truly isn’t. I don’t want to have to pretend anymore. I hope you understand. So, this is what is going on now: the embryo has a heartbeat, but it isn’t strong, and the baby isn’t growing very much. So we wait—and this is hard. So much uncertainty...but the chances are very, very small that this is a viable pregnancy. I have complete confidence that my family and I will get through this, even if the journey is difficult. I am so blessed with my amazing doctor, my dear friends, and my loving family...My husband and my four very healthy babies help me keep it together and have the perspective of how truly beautiful life is, even when it occasionally seems ugly. The luck and gratitude I feel that I am my babies’ mommy, is wonderfully overwhelming and comforting. In your comments, please be kind. I’m feeling a bit fragile and I need support. I’m hoping, that by sharing this, I can contribute to raising awareness about this sensitive topic.
