Proof positive! After making headlines last week for her two-days-post-baby underwear selfie, Hilaria Baldwin snapped another belly-baring Instagram photo to address some of the comments on her previous pics.
According to the caption on her newest shot — posted on Sunday, June 21 — several commenters have been engaged in a heated debate over whether the yoga instructor and Extra correspondent, 31, had a cesarean section to give birth to son Rafael, her second child with husband Alec Baldwin.

“1) I apologize for the weird post and I want to say I am grateful for all the concern I have read on my photo comments. I know they are coming from a good place,” she wrote. “2) This is for those of you who are getting into some pretty serious arguments with each other about if I had a c section or not…this should clear it up: as you can see from this pic, I did not have a c section.”
The accompanying photo shows Baldwin standing in front of a bathroom mirror with her black tank top pulled up to reveal her stomach.
“3) The other question has been speculation as to why I stayed in the hospital a few days,” she continued. “Rafael came a little early (nothing extreme) so we just wanted to stay an extra night and make sure all is ok. Due dates are estimates and he came out a healthy weight. I’m actually lucky because given another few weeks, he would have been HUGE!”
Rafael, born on June 17, joins big sister Carmen, 21 months. Proud third-time dad Alec, 57, also shares daughter Ireland, 19, with ex-wife Kim Basinger.
“4) We are overjoyed that we have a healthy little boy and also that I am feeling well,” Hilaria wrote. “I can never repay my doctor and the nurses who cared for Rafa and me. I’m eternally grateful.”
