A few weeks ago, Hilary Duff announced she was expecting her first child with boyfriend Matthew Koma via a sweet Instagram post. "Guess what guys! @matthewkoma and I made a little princess of our own and we couldn't be more excited!!!!!!🤰🏼👶🏼🎀," she posted, along with a photo of herself proudly flaunting her baby bump while hugging Koma. Now, the actress/singer is revealing that a close circle of friends, family members, and neighbors actually found out the news—in a very exciting manner—a month or so before the rest of us.
On Tuesday, Duff took to her Instagram with a video from the sex reveal party she'd thrown for her child on Mother's Day. In it, Koma counts down to one before all the partygoers set off little tubes filled with pink confetti and glitter. Duff then jumps up and down, cheering, before hugging her boyfriend. (The happy moment was also captured in a photo uploaded by Koma to his own Instagram, who simply wrote, "It's a girl.")
"A few months ago we had one of the most exciting Mother’s Day! Filled with amazing friends, family, mothers, and neighbors❤️ It was such a fun surprise!" Duff captioned the video. "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 lol 💖 #hurryuplittlegirlwewanttomeetyou"
Duff has been keeping her followers updated on her pregnancy with a couple of Instagram posts since she first announced she was expecting. The day after her first announcement, she posted a picture of herself holding her niece Lulu (the newborn baby of her sister Haylie Duff and her fiancé, Matt Rosenberg), writing, "Getting practice with Lulu🍑 ❤️." Then, on Monday, she posted a photo of herself showing off her baby bump while posing with Koma. "Everyday we are growing...Baby B is growing ...growing is nice with you ❤️," she wrote, possibly hinting at a name for their child.
As Brides previously reported, the baby will be Duff's second child after Luca Cruz, whom she shares with her ex-husband Mike Comrie.
