Hilaria and Alec Baldwin are expecting their fifth child five months after experiencing a miscarriage, she announced Wednesday.

The fitness guru revealed in an Instagram post that "it is still very early" in the pregnancy, but she wanted to share her news in the interest of transparency.

She also asked paparazzi to avoid taking her picture, as "getting chased around by cameras is not in the doctor's orders."

"The sound of this strong heart makes me so happy -- especially because of the loss we experienced in the spring," she wrote. "We want to share this news as we are excited and don’t want to hide the pregnancy. These first few months are tough with exhaustion and nausea...and I don’t want to have to pretend that I feel ok."

Hilaria Baldwin, 35, and Alec Baldwin, 61, are already parents to Carmen, 6, Rafael, 5, Leonardo, 3, and Romeo, 1. Baldwin also has a 23-year-old daughter, Ireland, from his marriage to actress Kim Basinger.

In April, Hilaria Baldwin announced on social media that she'd experienced a miscarriage and had undergone a dilation and curettage procedure. A D&C, according to the Mayo Clinic, is the procedure in which tissue is removed from the uterus.

"Since so many of you have been asking, I want to tell you that I am doing well. It has been 2 weeks since the d&c and I am physically starting to feel like myself again," she wrote on Instagram. "Emotionally I am ok too...when we choose to become parents, we take a big risk with our hearts. Never do we love so intensely—and this is scary, but so worth it."

Since so many of you have been asking, I want to tell you that I am doing well. It has been 2 weeks since the d&c and I am physically starting to feel like myself again. Emotionally I am ok too...when we choose to become parents, we take a big risk with our hearts. Never do we love so intensely—and this is scary, but so worth it. This time, when I opened my heart up to another baby, he or she didn’t stay very long. But I love this little soul deeply and wholly. We all have a purpose in life, and I believe my little one left positivity in it’s short life. I felt a deep provocation to share what was going on and, in being so open, some great conversations emerged. Creating a positive from a negative, this little flicker of life left it’s mark. This is an issue that so many suffer with in silence...because those are the rules we follow. As I have said to so many: this experience wasn’t just about me and my journey, it is about anyone, perhaps you, or someone you know, who has suffered a loss. It is about continuing a conversation, knowing we need not have shame or fear...so that we can heal...and those who will unfortunately follow will have a community to turn to. I came forward to share and create a spark...please help me turn this spark into a lasting flame 🔥. (What you are seeing in the video is the first sonogram of the baby I lost...before we could see and hear the heart. In the lower left corner you can see the flicker. I don’t have a video of the heartbeat we witnessed a few times before it stopped...I want to share this because I feel like this little soul was mighty in the wave it provoked 💛)
