Great Expectations

BY Phebe Wahl | May 21, 2018 | Feature Features National

How does Hamptonite Hilaria Baldwin balance an expanding brood and life in the limelight with such grace? The secret lies in her perspective.

It is a matter of days before “Baldwinito” number four is slated to arrive, yet Hilaria Baldwin is as calm and clear as ever. “I never thought I would have so many, but we like them all, so we keep on having more,” she says, laughing.

Possessing that enviable lit-from-within glow, Baldwin and her attitude of gratitude are deeply endearing, and as easy as it would be to envy the has-it-all beauty, she is just too darn kind and humble to incite anything but endearment. We suspect the secret lies in her trademark Living Clearly Method, the subject of her first book, published last year. “I practice something called The Living Clearly Method,” Baldwin explains. “The first principle is perspective—it’s just, ‘Let me look at the big picture,’” she says. “And so, even for pregnancy—pregnancy is not a never-ending thing; there is an end to it and then your body can go back. Is it ever exactly the same? No. But it can be pretty similar. And in some ways better because you know yourself more and you have more respect for what you can do. And that’s my biggest thing. When the kids are having a meltdown, when I’m having a meltdown, when I’m having a sleepless night, when I have to pee a million times—when I’m having any of the annoying things, I say, ‘Okay, this is now; it’s not going to be forever,’ and that keeps me calm. And then, you know, breathing and grounding, and balance and letting go. And then my other principles I do as well. But the first thing is really perspective.”
