A major congratulations is in order for Hilary Duff. The Younger actress just welcomed her second child, a daughter named Banks Violet Bair. (It’s Duff’s first child with boyfriend Matthew Koma. Her son Luca is from her previous marriage to hockey player Mike Comrie.)
Banks was born on Thursday, October 25, but Duff officially announced her arrival on Instagram last night (October 29). “Banks Violet Bair❤️ this little bit has fully stolen our hearts! She joined our world at home on Thursday afternoon and is absolute magic,” Duff posted alongside a photo of her holding Banks as Koma looks on with a smile.

Duff announced in June that she and Koma were expecting a baby girl together. “Guess what guys! @matthewkoma and I made a little princess of our own and we couldn’t be more excited!!!!!!🤰🏼👶🏼,” she wrote on Instagram at the time. Koma made a separate announcement on his Instagram, writing, “We made a baby girl! She will be as beautiful and sweet as her mother… @hilaryduff another incredible chapter begins.”
The “Sparks” singer has been open about the good times with this pregnancy as well as the difficult. In July, she posted an incredibly transparent Instagram about her pregnancy frustrations that many mothers responded to. “Man.. pregnancy is hard,” she wrote. “Giving love to all mamas who make it look effortless… this journey is hard as hell and also incredibly special. Lovely to have a little life inside and to day dream of all the new adventures to come buuuut almost impossible to get my own shoes on..sick of getting up 9 times a night to pee and looking at this weird body in the mirror that is not my own at the moment. Women are so bad ass, this was just a note to remind myself and remind others how’s strong and beautiful you are! WE GOT THIS.”
