by Caralynn Lippo

Congratulations are in order for Hilary Duff!

The Younger star welcomed a baby with her boyfriend, musician Matthew Koma, on Thursday, October 25. The baby girl is Hilary’s second child and first daughter and the couple’s first child together. The 31-year-old actress also shares a 6-year-old son, Luca, with her ex-husband Mike Comrie.

Hilary announced the birth of her daughter via Instagram on Monday, October 29, alongside a pic of the parents looking totally in love with their new addition. The actress also revealed the baby’s name in the post.

“Banks Violet Bair❤️ this little bit has fully stolen our hearts! She joined our world at home on Thursday afternoon and is absolute magic,” she wrote.

Hilary and Matthew announced their pregnancy news in early June, revealing that they were expecting and the gender of their baby at once.

“Guess what guys! [Matthew] and I made a little princess of our own and we couldn’t be more excited!!!!!!” she captioned a sweet photo of the two.

The former Lizzie McGuire star was open about her pregnancy journey over the course of the year, frequently sharing updates on social media. On October 23, she took to Instagram Stories to lament the fact that she hadn’t given birth yet, suggesting that she was past her due date for her second child.

“Yo… your hotel stay is up little girl,” she captioned the baby bump photo, according to Entertainment Tonight. Earlier in the week, Hilary also told her fans on social media that she was attempting to induce labor.

The actress previously teased her daughter-to-be’s name by revealing the baby’s first initial would be “B.”

“It was the very first thing [we decided on]. We’ve known her name for a really long time. Her name starts with a B, and I keep calling her baby B, which is awesome because people are like, ‘Oh, no, it’s just because of his last name [Bair, Matthew’s birth last name],'” Hilary told People in August. “We actually agreed. We had one name picked out and then we swapped a week later and we haven’t discussed it since. It’s unique but it’s not too weird. The name that we first thought we were gonna use is going to be her middle name, so we’re like, ‘Let’s not stress over this anymore.'”

All the best to Hilary and her family with their new addition!
