Alec Baldwin’s wife Hilaria came to her own defense claiming people are just “confused” about her Spanish heritage.

Hilaria attempted to explain away all of the evidence that Twitter user @lenibriscoe put together that showed the author might not be exactly who she said she was in an interview published Wednesday by the New York Times. Hilaria has been accused of faking her Spanish accent and going by a new name. Her real name is reportedly Hillary, according to the Daily Beast. Multiple agencies and even google have Spain listed as her birthplace, even though she was born in Boston, the Daily Beast reported.

“Today we have an opportunity to clarify for people who have been confused — and have been confused in some ways by people misrepresenting me,” Hilaria told the New York Times style reporter. (RELATED: REPORT: Hilaria Baldwin Doesn’t Actually Have A Spanish Accent)

Hilaria claimed she speaks with a Spanish accent in varying degrees depending on her mood, The New York Times reported. Hilaria also told the outlet she was unaware that ¡Hola! magazine listed her birthplace as Spain when she posed for the cover, not once but twice, according to the Times. As for the moment she didn’t know what the english word for cucumber was, Hilaria claimed it was just a “brain fart.”

The New York Times labeled all of the videos and biographies of Hilaria as “misconceptions.”

According to Hilaria, she didn’t misrepresent herself, other people did.

“One of the most important places to start is this idea of boundaries,” she continued.
Basically, Hilaria is chalking this controversy up to “oversharing.”

Hilaria, who is known for sharing her children all over her social media, claimed she shielded her family from the press to protect them.

“The things I have shared about myself are very clear,” Hilaria told the outlet. “I was born in Boston. I spent time in Boston and in Spain. My family now lives in Spain. I moved to New York when I was 19 years old and I have lived here ever since. For me, I feel like I have spent 10 years sharing that story over and over again. And now it seems like it’s not enough.”

She claimed she told Baldwin that she was from Boston from the very beginning, but even the actor once claimed she was from Spain in an interview with David Letterman.

This whole situation has turned into one big mess and it seems insulting to the average person for Hilaria to come out and say that everyone is just “confused.” We are confused because multiple places on the internet say you’re from Spain including your husband.
