Sharing a picture of the couple and their new baby, she wrote: “Banks Violet Bair❤ this little bit has fully stolen our hearts! She joined our world at home on Thursday afternoon and is absolute magic ✨”.

Music producer Matthew posted the same picture with the caption: “Banks Violet Bair /// 10.25.18 /// We welcome a beautiful daughter, little sister, and best friend for life.

“Could not possibly be more grateful for our growing family and for the 🍊 who makes it all possible. Cloud ten.”

The actress announced they were expecting “a little princess” back in June.

Banks is a little sister for Hilary’s six-year-old son Luca from her marriage to former ice hockey star Mike Comrie.

This is Matthew’s first child, but the actress has no doubts he’ll be a great dad.

In a post in August she wrote: “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.

The couple have been dating on and off since 2016

“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.”

She initially began dating Koma in 2016, shortly after her romance with her personal trainer Jason Walsh fizzled out, but they parted ways in April, 2017.

Their relationship appeared to be back on just five months later, as he helped Hilary celebrate her 30th birthday, and she confirmed as much in December, during an interview on U.S. daytime show The Talk.

She didn’t mention Matthew by name, but revealed she was dating someone she had previously been linked to.

“Timing is such a big deal, third time’s a charm,” Hilary remarked. “I think that you have history and a past with someone, and love, and just because it doesn’t work out the first or second time, as long as there’s not too much damage done, then it can always work out again.

The announcement comes just three days after her big sister, Haylie Duff, welcomed her second child, daughter Lulu with her fiance, Matt Rosenberg.
