Hilaria Baldwin is turning the other cheek.
On Thursday, the mother-of-six took to her Instagram story to open up about a recent run-in with a baby bump shamer.
Hilaria is currently expecting her seventh child with actor Alec Baldwin, so she’s no stranger to the realities of pregnancy, including body shaming. However, his time around the entrepreneur and author isn't letting these harmful comments ruin her day — and she's speaking out against the haters.
"Oh, forgot to tell you that at the carnival yesterday an old man working at one of the booths shouted at me: 'I can tell it's twins! That big belly! I know these things!' Self-proclaimed expert. I'm sure he knows from all the babies he's had. I just wave and walk on...who the f— cares? Why is it always men who do this? One baby is popping out of this body. Why argue with an 'expert'?" she wrote alongside a laughing emoji.
This isn't the first time that the Baldwin has dealt with people saying negative things about her bump. During her third pregnancy, she spoke to Today about the all-too-common practice of commenting on women's pregnant bodies, whether it's wanted or not.
Regarding the negative remarks she gets, Baldwin said: "Most of the time I just ignore, block, delete. Sometimes I like to talk about it on a post if I feel it can help other people learn about bullying...Responding with love, forgiveness, and support are the best I can do."
She also encouraged expectant mothers that their bodies should be appreciated.
"We don’t need to be ashamed or hide the pregnant figure. I am a true believer that our bodies are amazing, and we should celebrate them," she explained.
Baldwin is one of many stars who have opened up about the shaming they get over their pregnant bodies. Previously, Blac Chyna addressed negative comments she received about her appearance while carrying her first child, and Australian fitness influencer Hannah Polities clapped back against people who claimed her fit pregnant body was unhealthy.
In July, Baldwin revealed how her body is "slowing down" while carrying her seventh child in a lengthy post about pregnancy and exercise.
"As I begin the final trimester of this pregnancy, I feel my body slowing down. I love exercising while pregnant and feel grateful that my pregnancies have allowed for me to be active," she wrote. "We all know that every pregnancy is different and much control we have to let go to nature and listen to what our reality is. I got pregnant with Carmen at 28 and I’m 38 to have this baby girl. Age and wear and tear of so many pregnancies and babies are things I definitely feel."
