Hilary Duff relieved Baby No 2 is a girl because she desperately wanted a little girl
Hilary Duff had her wish come true and is now expecting a baby girl with her current boyfriend Matthew Koma
Hilary Duff says she was relieved after she gave birth to her baby girl. While she was pregnant, she was extremely anxious about the fact that she was expecting a baby boy when she really wanted to have a little girl.
As reported by People, in an 'On Air' phone conversation with Ryan Seacrest, Hilary admitted that she was longing to have a baby girl since she is already a mother to a son, Luca Cruz, who is currently six years old. "I was so nervous beforehand because I thought for sure I was going to have a boy. I have a boy already, which would’ve been great and I’m obsessed with Luca, but I don’t know, I just wanted one of each," she said.
"It was funny that I cared so much. My sister has girls and I feel like I’m really girly. But for the past six years, I’ve bought monsters and trucks and planes and Luca’s into all the boy stuff, so everything’s blue and green, and I was just ready for pink and purple stuff," she went to add.
Hilary also went on to share some details about her gender-reveal party. "It was the most fun day. We had close family and friends over and you have to talk to [the] doctor [before] and then the doctor gives you the results. We ordered these really cute confetti cannons on Etsy. They look like smoke, but it’s powder and then some confetti," she revealed.
"You twist them and you all stand there at the same time. It sounds so silly because it’s kind of childish, [but] it’s so exciting," she continued.
Hilary, who already has a son Luca with her former husband Mike Comrie, took to Instagram to announce that she and her current boyfriend Mathew Koma are expecting their first child together.
She uploaded a photograph of herself along with Koma sharing a kiss and wrote, "Guess what guys! @matthewkoma and I made a little princess of our own and we couldn’t be more excited!!!!!!🤰🏼👶🏼🎀."
Hilary could be seen wearing a dress which reveals a hint of a baby bump. Koma wrote on the same image, "We made a baby girl! She will be as beautiful and sweet as her mother @hilaryduff another incredible chapter begins."
Hilary's son Luca has some pretty heartfelt and strong opinions about his sister-to-be. Hilary appeared on the 'Late Night Show with James Corden' where she opened up about how Luca is preparing to be an older brother. "The beginning was a little, a little… He was surprised. And, now, he’s warming up to the idea," she told Corden.
She also said that Luca has gotten very comfortable with the idea of having a sister so much so that the little one has started to tell all his friends at school about his mother's pregnancy adding his own colorful details. "He told his friend at school the other day that he’s having a sister that’s part red-butt monkey. So we’ll see! It’ll be a first. That’ll be really cool," Duff said jokingly.
Luca also shared his thoughts on what his sibling's name should be. "We’re up for any kind of suggestions, but Luca thinks 'Cofant Croissant' is like, the coolest name," Duff said, adding that Luca has become pretty insistent on the name.
"There would be no confusion. And when I just refer to it as 'Cofant' and I’m like, 'That would be so cool, no one at school’s going to be named Cofant.' He’s like ‘Croissant. Cofant Croissant.’ It goes together. There’s no separating the two.'" "It’s concerning," she added. "I think he has pretty good taste. It’s pretty strong, right?" she added.
The news of Duff's pregnancy comes seven months after she confirmed that she and Koma were back together.
As reported by 'People', Duff appeared on CBS's 'The Talk' and said, "It’s going so great," in reference to her relationship admitting that this was the third time that they had dated. "Timing is such a big deal… Third time’s the charm!"
In the month of September, she began to drop hints that the couple had gotten back together by sharing polaroids of herself strumming a guitar and blowing out the candles on her birthday cake.
"I think that you have history and a past with someone and love, and just because it doesn’t work out the first time, the second time, as long as there’s not too much damage done, then, it can always work out again," she continued.
