While the Baldwins are clearly happy with their growing family, some people had strong reactions to the choice of their daughter’s name. The couple is known for choosing unique names with Spanish origins for their children, despite Hilaria’s upbringing in Boston. This has stirred controversy due to previous allegations of Hilaria misrepresenting her heritage and using a fake Spanish accent in 2020.

Critics raised concerns about the name Ilaria, suggesting it was another instance of Hilaria trying to portray herself as Spanish despite her background. Others pointed out that Ilaria is actually an Italian name, meaning “cheerful,” and was popular in Italy in the mid-2000s.

The selection of their daughter’s name has sparked discussion and debate, highlighting the couple’s distinctive naming approach for their children and the ongoing controversy surrounding Hilaria’s cultural identity.
