The impending arrival of a child can be a very exciting time, but there is one aspect some expecting parents might find to be a rather difficult task: picking out their baby’s name. However, according to a recent report by People, Hilary Duff, who is pregnant with her first girl, and her boyfriend, Matthew Koma, did not find choosing what to name their daughter difficult at all, as Duff revealed.
“We’ve known her name for a really long time,” she said.
Fans were excited when Hilary Duff, 30, announced that she and her boyfriend of over a year, Matthew Koma, were expecting their first child, a baby girl, together back in June. This will be Duff’s second child as she is already a mother to 6-year-old son Luca Cruz.
As her due date slowly approaches, the Younger actress revealed that not only have they decided on their daughter’s name, but she’s been leaving clues throughout her pregnancy as to what her girl’s name will be.
“It was the very first thing [we decided on]. We’ve known her name for a really long time. Her name starts with a B, and I keep calling her baby B, which is awesome because people are like, ‘Oh, no, it’s just because of his last name,'” she told the media outlet.
For those who don’t know, Matthew’s last name isn’t actually Koma, it’s Bair.
“We actually agreed. We had one name picked out and then we swapped a week later and we haven’t discussed it since,” she continued.
The Lizzie McGuire alum has kept her 10 million Instagram followers in the loop since announcing she was expecting. And if her followers were paying close attention, the Raise Your Voice actress does allude to her unborn child as “baby B” in many of her photo captions. Some fans who caught onto it, were already speculating that the couple were going to give their daughter a name that started with the letter.
Can’t help but imagine this little girl is growing and blooming in my belly like these roses that keep popping up at our house. Pregnancy is filled with so much emotion and some really tough long days but it sure is special. Feeling lots of love today with every movement and kick to the bladder lol. Appreciate that this one picked Matt and I to be her mommy and daddy. We gunna crush it for you baby B. You also have the sweetest big* brother waiting to meet and love you❤️????
Not surprisingly, Duff did not give away the actual name, but she did reveal that although the name will be “unique,” it won’t be “too weird.”
“It’s unique but it’s not too weird. The name that we first thought we were gonna use is going to be her middle name, so we’re like, ‘Let’s not stress over this anymore.'”
Duff has been open about the fact that Luca was not too happy about learning that he would be getting a sister at first, but he has come around since then.
“He’s sweet now. When we say goodbye, he always says goodbye to her. And he wants to feel her kicking. It’s really sweet. I think he’s a little nervous about sharing his toys and stuff like that, but he doesn’t realize that they’re not going to be the same thing,” she gushed.
The Material Girls actress recalled a sweet moment Luca recently had with her sister Haylie’s second daughter, Lulu Gray, who was born on June 5.
“My sister just had a baby and [Luca] was picking up her foot by the toe and he was like, ‘This is so adorable. He was holding her toe and lifting it up and her leg was just kind of dangling there. And he was like, ‘This is so cute and adorable. It’s so tiny.’ So at least he’s not like, ‘Ew, gross, I don’t want to touch a baby.'”
Fans will most likely be keeping their eyes glued to Duff’s social media page until her daughter is born so they can be the first to learn what her daughter’s “unique” name will be.
