The mother-to-be has been a yoga instructor since 2005 and as her popularity grew so did her classes. Reviews of Hilaria's yoga sessions report positive experiences from her prior students but when you're married to one of the most successful men in Hollywood, it's impossible to fully avoid a negative glade.
Spencer Wolff is suing Baldwin's wife for her negligence when Thomas "forced" him "to perform a dangerous activity at a wall".
Wolff's friend provided a description of the injury that the plaintiff sustained from his yoga endeavor gone wrong.
It was reported that Wolff was practicing the mediating exercise against a large window on the sixth floor of Hilaria's studio when he was thrown off balance due to the over crowded room.
"... Instead of crashing into the person in front of him he went to the side to avoid hitting anyone, his leg went through the window which was not safety glass, it shattered and he impaled his leg on a huge shard of glass, slicing through the muscle to the bone in a number of places, basically shredding the muscles in his leg and now he has to go through a lot of physical therapy to regain movement in his foot," Wolff's friend continued. "Having large non-safety glass windows in a 6th floor studio that is overcrowded with people doing things like handstands is pretty insane, if he had gone through with more force he could have fallen out completely."
Alec Bladwin has been quoted saying that when their expected child arrives, the retired actor would like to take on the role of being a stay-at-home dad.
"I want [Hilaria Thomas] to becom the world's first billionaire yoga teacher," Baldwin said about his flexible wife. However, Wolff's lawsuit may put a "cramp" in Balwin's relaxation plans.
Baldwin addressed the incident on Twitter expressing his thoughts about the prosecuation.

"Litigation is the preferred tool of those who want to harass, obfuscate or extort," Baldwin said.
Reports indicate that yoga studios usually require students to sign waivers of liability. The waivers are "legally binding against any subsequent lawsuit unless there is a finding of severe negligence, fraud, or unreasonably dangerous activity".
Is Huffington Post blogger Spencer Wolff the harasser in this scenario? Or should Baldwin's wife be held accountable for her student's injury?
