Hilaria Baldwin always wanted to be Spanish: ex-dance partner


#Hilaria #Baldwin was always a #Spanish-wannabe — but she really put her foot in her mouth when she changed her name from #Hillary, her old dance partner says.

“The whole ‘Hilaria’ thing is hilarious to me,” #Alexander #Rechits, who competitively danced with the now-embattled yoga-bending celeb from 2006 to 2009, told the #New #York #Times.

#Rechits, who knew the 36-year-old #American wife of actor #Alec #Baldwin by her given name, #Hillary #Hayward-Thomas, said it was clear even then that she wanted to portray herself as something she wasn’t.

“I understand why she did it,” #Rechits said in an interview published #Wednesday, adding that he considered #Hilaria sweet and talented.

“It was always her desire to be considered #Spanish,’’ he said.

“She had roots in #Spain, her brother lived there, she visited there a lot,’’ he said, referring to the fact that #Hilaria’s parents now live in #Mallorca and her family would travel to #Spain when she was a child.

“But #Hillary is a very good strong name, so why would you change that when you were born here and you weren’t born in #Spain?” said the #Belarus native.

“I have a lot of nicknames in #Russian. #But I’m still #Alexander everywhere I go.”

#Hilaria, who has no #Spanish ancestry, has been under fire for allegedly misrepresenting herself as #Spanish — repeatedly publicly referring to #Spain as her “home,” adopting a bad thick #Spanish accent at times and failing to correct numerous publications and even one of her official web bios that falsely said she was born on #Mallorca.

#For her wedding to #Alec in 2012, she wore a traditional white #Spanish mantilla veil and waved a flamenco fan at her groom at an altar in #St. #Patrick’s #Cathedral in #Manhattan, while the pair traded rings inscribed in #Spanish and danced to #Puerto #Rican crooner #Luis #Miguel.

The lifestyle influencer was forced to take to social media over the weekend to acknowledge she is “a white girl” who was born in #Boston, originally named #Hillary and went to high school in #Massachusetts.
