Hilary Duff has revealed her fourth baby’s name – now everyone is saying the same thing. 

Duff, 36, has transitioned from a teen idol to a devoted mom.

The world initially fell in love with the star as Lizzie McGuire but now it’s her personal life that is capturing the hearts of fans.

And when it comes to her new baby girl’s name, people have had a lot to say.

Duff began dating NHL player Mike Comrie in 2007 and three years later, they tied the knot.

In March 2012, they welcomed a son named Luca Cruz.

The pair announced their separation in 2014 and finalized their divorce in 2016.

It was an amicable split and they’re prioritizing Luca’s well-being, maintaining a co-parenting relationship rooted in friendship and respect.

Love returned to Duff’s life when she began dating singer-songwriter Matthew Koma in 2017.

Their relationship quickly blossomed and in October 2018, they welcomed their daughter, Banks Violet Bair.

After getting engaged in 2019, that same year they tied the knot in an intimate yard ceremony at their Los Angeles home.

Duff and Koma welcomed son Mae James Bair in March 2021.

Late last year, the How I Met Your Father star confirmed she was expecting again.

In an Instagram tribute to her husband, Duff has reflected on their growing family, joking it has been a ‘truly wild choice.’

She praised Koma for his support, writing: “While you rage the farmers market with the kids after 4 nights of shows and late nights so I can get some sleep and not hear mom mom mama mommy mooooom just know this only works because of you.”

During her pregnancy, Duff revealed she was experiencing some challenges, such as insomnia. She also shared that she was trying acupuncture to encourage labor.

Humorously, the actress said she was ‘gently trying to give baby the eviction notice.’

Duff announced the arrival of her fourth child on Instagram, alongside heartfelt black-and-white photos of the water birth.

She revealed that her new daughter was born on May 3, writing: “Now we know why she made us wait so long… She was perfecting those cheeks!

“I have been dreaming of holding you in my arms for months and the past 5 days of getting to know you, stare at you, and smell you have been pure moments of magic.

“We all love you like you’ve been here all along beauty.”

The announcement was met with an outpouring of love and congratulations from fans and celebrities alike, with one follower commenting: “Omg I’m crying for you!!!!!! Congratulations and welcome sweet baby!!!!

Another wrote: “Congratulations to you all. Love you!!”

A third added: “She is absolutely beautiful and congratulations Hilary, Matthew, and family!! I am so happy for y’all.”

The announcement has also led many to comment on Duff and Koma’s controversial name choice – they’ve named their little girl Townes Meadow Bair.
