Hilaria, 34, is currently expecting her fourth child with partner Alec Baldwin. She was pictured posing in Bryant Park in front of a statue of American novelist, poet, and playwright Gertrude Stein.

Hilaria Baldwin braved the winter chill and showed off her baby bump while doing yoga poses in front of public statues of female leaders in honor of International Women's Day.

The 34-year-old wellness expert was pictured posing in New York City's Bryant Park on Thursday afternoon performing a series of yoga moves in front of a statue of American novelist, poet, and playwright Gertrude Stein.

Despite the winter chill, Hilaria was wearing just a pair of tight-fitting leggings and a short-sleeved T-shirt, covering up her arms for a couple of the images in a pale pink jacket.

After sharing a sweet smooch with his wife, Alec pretended to swoon on the couch behind him. 

'And that's what it's like living with an actor,' Hilaria joked. 

But Hilaria is not the only one taking steps to celebrate the female-focused day, and the world's strongest female icons, both past and present.  

In the images of Hilaria posing in the park, the statue of literary icon Stein can be seen draped in flowers as part of an International Women's Day campaign to celebrate some of the country's female leaders, while drawing awareness to the fact that, of the 150 public historical statues in the city, only five depict women of note.

Launched by Old Navy, the #hipowered 'flower empower' campaign saw those five statues being covered in flowers for the day.   

Impressive: New York City's statue of Joan of Arc was covered in garland made out of baby's breath 

Looking to spring: There were pink and white roses left at the foot of the statue 

Empowering: The Fearless Girl statue, which was unveiled in March 2017, was also decorated as part of the campaign 

Modern hero: The bronze statue was given a cape of blue and purple flowers that trailed behind her

As well as Stein's statue, sculptures of Eleanor Roosevelt, Golda Meir, Harriet Tubman, and Joan of Arc, were decorated with lush flowers and ferns inspired by the colors in the brand's new 'Hi, Powered' collection - as well as the Fearless Girl statue in the Financial District. 

Meanwhile, in celebration of the day, Julie Luker, director of public relations and partnerships at Old Navy, told DailyMail.com that female empowerment has always been important to the brand.

Out of Old Navy's 56,000 employees, 75 per cent are women.

'International Women’s Day has been celebrated globally for over 100 years, and one of the longest standing traditions is for women to receive flowers,' she said. 

'We wanted to pay homage to that tradition in a uniquely Old Navy way. We believe in supporting and inspiring future leaders.'
