But once Hilaria Baldwin saw the comments, she was quick to defend the photo.

The mother-of-two uploaded four messages on Instagram defending her husband's post and confirming the five women weren't all nannies.

She wrote she was "hurt" by the headlines because it made her sound like a lazy mum.

She explained that her husband was thanking all the nannies and babysitters that have worked with them since their first child was born.




Baldwin then wrote her own thank you to all the people who have helped cared for her children, making the point that they are not all nannies.


The mother then uploaded a photo of her youngest child, Rafael, laughing on the beach with the caption: "Five nannies? Bahaha that's a lot of people to wipe my tushy.

"In the end you gotta laugh that this was actually a headline. Good night to you all... thank you for all the love and support. Means the world."
