She posted her message alongside a screenshot from the ectrodactyly Wikipedia page.

As the University of Missouri detailed: "Cleft hand is a rare, congenital (present at birth) hand anomaly. This condition has been known by several other names, such as ectrodactyly, split hand and lobster claw hand. Today, most prefer to use the term 'cleft hand'."

In a separate post, Baldwin also shared a close-up shot of her hand, zoning in on her pinky finger. She later offered a final plea to fans.

"So in conclusion please stop roasting me about my pinky fingers," she wrote.
