On October 25, Hilary Duff welcomed her baby girl, Banks Violet, into the world and shared the news via Instagram. She later opened up about the birth being an at-home water birth, something not many people are familiar with.

Now, the mother of two is sharing the video of the first time she met her baby girl as she sits in the water with her newborn.

“I’ve been wondering for a long time if I would ever share this video as it is extremely personal…. it was so absolutely lovely and rewarding(and shocking) that after giving birth to my baby girl we hugged …for the first time, In my mind I like to believe that she was saying good job mom. Go team go. We did it. Together,” Hillary wrote alongside the video. “Matt provided such a safe calm strength, my mommy and sissy were there to cheer me on, and of course my birth angels to make sure all was well and big brother (downstairs deep in legos).”

She continued, “I cannot believe this day was only 5 months ago!! It seems like B has been here with us all along. The time is already going so fast..she tried avocado yesterday! Anyway… feeling blessed for this full hectic life and all the people in it. Happy 5 months Banks (oh and thanks for quitting colic) that was a doozy.”

The video begins after Hilary had just given birth. As she holds on to her brand new baby girl and kisses her on the head, Banks clearly reaches up for her mother to give her the first big hug of many.

Hilary had previously shared the details around her water birth. In an interview with the Informed Pregnancy podcast, Duff shared that she went into labor at 12:30 in the morning and had both her doula and midwives come to her home around 2.

“It was very painful in my hips and then it was more scary [in] just the overall bigness of what was happening than, ‘Ow, this hurts too bad, I can’t do it again.’”

Duff has an older son Luca, 7, with her ex-husband, Mike Comrie, whom she divorced in 2016. This is the first child for Hilary and her boyfriend Matthew Koma.
