Congratulations are in order for Hilary Duff and boyfriend Matthew Koma, who welcomed a baby girl on October 25th!
The Younger star posted the exciting news to Instagram on Monday, showing off a photo of she and Koma holding their (seriously adorable!!!!) new bundle of joy. “Banks Violet Bair this little bit has fully stolen our hearts! She joined our world at home on Thursday afternoon and is absolute magic,” the actress captioned the shot.
Koma—who has just become a dad for the first time—posted the same photo to his account, writing, “Banks Violet Bair /// 10.25.18 /// We welcome a beautiful daughter, little sister, and best friend for life. Could not possibly be more grateful for our growing family and for the 🍊 who makes it all possible. Cloud ten.”
The pair also took to their individual Instagram stories to share some additional closeup photos of baby Banks, who really is "absolute magic."
Duff teased her daughter's unique name in June, shortly after her sex reveal party. “Baby B is growing … growing is nice with you,” she posted on Instagram, at the time.“It’s unique but it’s not too weird,” she later elaborated to People. “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.’ ”
Duff and Koma have been together on and off since 2016, and Banks is their first child together (Duff also has a six-year-old son, Luca Cruz, with ex-husband Mike Comrie). The couple announced the news that they were expecting on Instagram earlier this year with an adorable photo featuring Koma kissing a pregnant Duff's on the side of the head. "Guess what guys! @matthewkoma and I made a little princess of our own and we couldn't be more excited!!!!!!🤰🏼👶🏼🎀" Duff captioned the photo on her account. "We made a baby girl! She will be as beautiful and sweet as her mother... @hilaryduff another incredible chapter begins," Koma wrote on his own version of the post.
Their next chapter has officially begun, and Hilary Duff and Matthew Koma (and baby Banks!) could not look happier about it.
