“We are growing!!! Mostly me,” 33-year-old Duff captioned a Boomerang post via Instagram on Saturday.
Actress and singer-songwriter Hilary Duff is pregnant again and expecting her second child with husband Matthew Koma. The 33-year-old Younger star shared the good news via a Boomerang on her Instagram on Saturday, October 24, of herself and Koma, also 33. He was seen rubbing her visible baby bump as she smiles\d in the clip. “We are growing!!! Mostly me …” Duff captioned the post. The couple had tied the knot less than a year ago in December 2019 and are already the parents to 2-year-old daughter Banks. Duff also has an 8-year-old son, Luca, whom she shares with her ex-husband, Mike Comrie. The Lizzie McGuire alum told PureWow in January that she felt guilty about her second pregnancy.
“The guilt that I felt for bringing her into the world was so big,” she said at the time, according to US Magazine. “It was just he and I for so long that he was like, ‘Why? Why, Mom? Why would you do this? I really just love the way it is.’ And it wasn’t bratty, it was just so sad. I was like, ‘How do I reverse this? It’s too late now.’” She added, “It’s such big feelings. When you’re pregnant, everything just feels more magnified.”
Koma is a singer/songwriter/producer who has worked with some of the biggest names in music, including Zedd, Tiesto, Alesso, and Shania Twain. All that changed when Duff and the fellow songwriter welcomed Banks in October 2018. To make matters even better, her first son Luca was also in total adoration of his little half-sister. According to PEOPLE, the couple got married at their Los Angeles home. "The ceremony started at sunset and they got married inside the house. When the ceremony was over, guests cheered. The reception was in a white tent in the backyard," a source told the magazine. Only "family and close friends" were in attendance.
“It’s the best,” the "So Yesterday" singer said. “It’s a chemical reaction between siblings sometimes where he knows he has to protect her. … It’s really sweet the way he looks out for her. But also, sometimes I’m like, ‘Hey, I did OK with you. I promise I know what I’m doing.’” During all this, Duff said that she has received nothing but constant support from Koma, whom she went on to say was a "natural papa bear" in a heartwarming Father's Day tribute back in June. “You always put us first,” she wrote via Instagram. “You know exactly what to say. Affectionate beyond. Calm and strong. The kids don’t even know how lucky they are that it’s you…. but they will. It’s a gift I get to witness every day. We love you more than words.”

There appears to be no animosity or hard feelings whatsoever even from Koma's side as he went on to say that he was honored to be Luca's stepdad in a birthday tribute in March. “Some of the perspective this kid brings into our world is actually mind-blowing,” the DJ wrote at the time. “We have each other’s backs so hard and I’ve learned more from him than he’ll ever realize. Thank you, Luca, for letting me walk you into school, for walking me down the aisle, reigniting the kid in me, singing my songs with me, looking out for my dairy allergy, teaching me every good iPad game, watching Frozen with your sister every morning, letting mom think you break things when I really do, and for just simply being you. We’ll always, always be the ‘sweet team.’ Can’t wait for you to read this in 15 years when you’re allowed to have an Instagram.”
