Hilary Duff reveals her own placenta made for most delicious smoothie she's ever had
Duff also revealed she chose not to go with the common practice of having the placenta converted into pills for later consumption as she "heard something weird about the pills"
Hilary Duff is taking motherhood in her stride and the 'Lizzie McGuire' star spoke with the podcast 'Informed Pregnancy', and told host Dr. Elliot Berlin, she drank a smoothie made of berries, fruit juice, and her own placenta, which she had extracted after she delivered her daughter, Banks Violet. The 31-year-old Houston native described the bizarre drink as the "most delightful smoothie [she's] ever had", as per reports.
The 'Younger' actress welcomed a baby girl October 25 with her boyfriend Matthew Koma and took to Instagram to share the wonderful news. Speaking on the podcast, she said, "I haven't had a smoothie that delightful since I was like 10-years-old; it was calorie-filled with juice and fruit and everything delicious."
She also told Berlin she had a portion of her placenta placed in ice cubes for future consumption, and has even asked boyfriend Koma, along with her six-year-old son Luca, who she shares with ex Mike Comrie, to be careful about it since its being stored in the family's refrigerator.
In a hilarious anecdote, the actress revealed how her son Luca had requested to see it, and later, after seeing the placenta, remarked, "I wish I hadn't have asked." Duff also revealed during the podcast that she chose to go against the common practice of having the placenta converted into pills for later consumption because she "heard something weird about the pills."
"I heard placenta burps are not ideal," said Duff, who also spoke about one insanely memorable moment that she shared with her little baby girl while giving birth to her at home. "They hand her to me and I'm looking at her ... babies are like floppy little worms. They just don't have any control."
Duff continued: "She reaches up both of her arms and like curls into me … reaches up her arms right at my neck like as to give me a hug. I couldn't believe how strong she was." The mother-of-two also remarked that the gesture was "clearly like a hug" and pretty much "amazing", for "it made [her] feel like she was like [saying], 'Good team, mom. We did it.'"
