She’s here! Hilary Duff welcomed her daughter, Banks Violet Bair, into the world on Thursday, October 25.
Hilary took to Instagram a few days later to share the news alongside a stunning photo of her cradling baby Banks, saying, “This little bit has fully stolen our hearts! She joined our world at home on Thursday afternoon and is absolute magic.”
Hilary, who is also mom to a son, Luka, from her previous marriage to Mike Cormie, has been very open about her second pregnancy, sharing the ups and downs of motherhood.
“The boobs are big the belly is big the body is big. Man.. pregnancy is hard. Giving love to all mamas who make it look effortless… this journey is hard as hell and also incredibly special,” she said in an Instagram post in July. “Women are so badass, this was just a note to remind myself and remind others how’s strong and beautiful you are!”
A few weeks after announcing her pregnancy, Hilary took to Instagram to share a video of the moment she found out she was having a girl, surrounded by her friends and family on Mother’s Day.
“A few months ago we had one of the most exciting Mother’s Day! Filled with amazing friends, family, mothers, and neighbors,” she captioned the video. “It was such a fun surprise! I can’t think of any other way to find out what was cooking in my belly than this….. the anticipation was brutal but the pay off was huge! I basically jumped 3 feet off the ground.”
Congratulations to the happy mama and family!
