The holiday season just got a whole lot merrier for Hilary Duff and her growing family!
In the midst of twinkling lights and festive cheer, the beloved actress and singer has announced that she is pregnant and expecting her fourth bundle of joy. Hilary is ready to embark on this new chapter filled with love, laughter, and an abundance of precious moments as she shared the news with her 26.8 million Instagram followers by posting new photos revealing her belly with her daughters Mae, 2, and Banks, 4, with husband Matthew Koma, plus son Luca, 11, with ex-husband Mike Comrie.
The post captioned “Surprise surprise!” has now accumulated about 721K likes, as it includes a family holiday card with a series of adorable snaps of her three kids and Koma as they pose in a bedroom. On the card, there is a phrase written with a joyful exclamation: “So much for silent nights! Love, the Duff-Bair-Comrie Crew.” The Lizzie McGuire alum can be seen placing her hand on her baby bump as her daughter Banks hangs from the bed’s rafters, and Mae sits on the ground with a guitar.
On the other hand, fans can also see Luca sitting in an armchair, holding a video game controller, while Koma poses on the bed surrounded by his family, one eyebrow up. Additionally, in another photo, Duff revealed the back of her holiday card, which had solitary photos of her three children. “Buckle up Buttercups, we’re adding one more to this crazy bunch!” the other side said. Furthermore, Koma, 36, also left a short comment on the same post, joking, “The stalker from jail gonna be so mad.”

The How I Met Your Father actress has previously spoken to PEOPLE about her life as a mom of three, sharing that she “loves this mayhem.” While also opening up about having an amazing partner in Koma.”He was such an amazing dad right out the gate,” said Duff. “In this time of breastfeeding and craziness, he was like, ‘I’m just going to be your assistant because I think that’s how I’m going to be the most helpful to you in this timeframe.’ He has this really amazing way of looking at the big picture where I’m very much like, right-here-right-now — and he zooms out.”
Duff began dating singer-songwriter Matthew Koma in January 2017. They worked together on her 2015 album, Breathe In, Breathe Out. The title track is a track he co-wrote and produced. The album is by her 9-year-old Luca, whom she shares with ex-husband Mike Comrie. As she told host James Corden, “So my son was around for my last album cycle, which was like five or six years ago already now. So he likes some songs off the record and appreciates it.” After a while, Duff and Koma became engaged in May 2019 and were then married on December 21, 2019.
