Hilary Duff Admits Son Luca Was Hesitant

Hilary Duff Admits Son Luca Had a Hard Time Warming Up to the Idea Of Having a Sibling

Hilary Duff, 30, is anticipating the arrival of her second child, a baby girl, with boyfriend Matthew Koma. But the actress reveals her 6-year-old son Luca wasn’t sold on the idea of sharing his mother.

Duff recalled the conversation with her son when she broke the news that he would soon be a big brother. “The first conversation was pretty sad,” The Lizzie McGuire alum told AOL. “He was like, ‘Why?’ Because it’s been just us for six years!”

Any mother can sympathize with Hilary when it comes to telling their only child that life as they’ve known it is about to change. Adding a new member is a transition for everyone in the family and a mother never knows the reaction that their only child will have when they learn the news that a sibling is on the way.

Duff handled the situation like a champ and explained to her son that he has a new and very important role as big brother to uphold. “I was like, ‘Dude, you have no idea. This is going to be a really good thing for our family. Mom has so much room in my heart for you and a sister and you’re going to have so much fun watching her grow and teaching her things.’”

The Younger actress also sold the idea of a baby sister to Luca with the appeal that any 6-year-old boy would find as cool. “I also told him that babies are funny! I was like, ‘And I’m going to chase you around with her dirty diapers sometimes.’ And he was like, ‘Nooo!’ If I keep it lighthearted, then he has fun with it and I do think he’s excited,” she said. “He’s touching my belly now and saying ‘goodbye’ to her when he goes to school.”

Now that Luca is excited and ready to make room for his baby sister Hilary admits that she has some last minute nerves about becoming a mother to a girl. “Boy” is all the actress has known for the last six years but luckily she has her big sister Haylie to look to for guidance. Haylie recently welcomed her second daughter and is looking forward to holding her sister’s hand in the unknown territory she’s about to embark on.

“To watch her be a mom of two is very different than being a mom of one, though,” Duff said. “It’s been cool to soak some of that up and see that that’s what is coming to me.”

We think you will do just fine Hilary, you got this!

April Love Geary Receives Harsh Criticism

April Love Geary Receives Harsh Criticism For Expecting So Soon After the Birth of Her Daughter

As reported earlier this week, singer Robin Thicke’s girlfriend is expecting the couple’s second child together. The model and her beau welcomed their daughter Mia just 6-months ago. The new mother made the announcement on Wednesday via Instagram that their daughter Mia would soon be a big sister.

But after revealing the happy news April Love Geary, 23, received major backlash from online trolls. The mommy-shaming began, people leaving hateful comments on April’s post. Geary was not only attacked for having a baby so close to her first but was under fire for not being married to her boyfriend Robin Thicke, 41, this far into the game.

I love this

A post shared by April Love Geary (@aprillovegeary) on

One person wrote, “Didn’t your doctor tell you, your body needs time to recover? You ruined the best years of your life.” Another bully who got the model’s age wrong judged her for “being only 21 and having no goals other than being pregnant TWICE in the same year.” While a third person chimed in saying she should have given her “body time to heal.”

April also got heat for having kids out of wedlock. One person left a comment, “Yes. Celebrate the fact that you’re having another child with your boyfriend. You losers should get married.”

The new mother didn’t sit back, Geary set the record straight to her haters writing, “Why are women so obsessed with telling me I need a ring? Getting married is the easy part, seeing how you are together AFTER having the babies is the hard part,” she wrote on Tuesday, August 21. “We’re in 2018. Not the 1950’s. Women don’t NEED to get married before having babies. Ya’ll need to chill.”

And that wasn’t the only record April set straight yesterday. The expectant mama confirmed that she and Robin were not trying to conceive so soon after their daughter Mia.

In fact, the new mother was on birth control when she found out she was expecting.

April conducted a Q&A on her Instagram Story on Wednesday and revealed when asked if her second pregnancy was planned she replied, “Nope!!! I started birth control and one morning I woke up nauseous.”

Geary also admitted that her reaction when she found out she was pregnant again was, “Holy s—t!! My doctor is amazing and says everything looks perfect right now,” she wrote. “I wanted to have them be close in age but it just happened to be very close in age haha.”

Hilary Duff’s BF Matthew Koma is the Sweetest…

Hilary Duff has a sweet tooth. But not to worry, her boyfriend Matthew Koma, 31, came to rescue for his pregnant girlfriend.

Duff, 30, gushed over her baby daddy in an Instagram story on Tuesday, August 14 when Koma returned from a tireless task of finding his girlfriend Good & Plenty candy that she was craving. After visiting numerous stores Koma scored and returned with Duff’s candy of choice in hand.

The Younger actress quizzed her BF in her Instagram story asking, “How many stores did you go to?” Koma responded with six and Hilary replied, “Babe, I’m sorry.”

Duff referred to Matthew as ‘her dealer’ in the caption of her Insta story before adding, “Did he do good hunting down my pregnancy craving?” We think so, Hilary!  

The Lizzie McGuire alum revealed back in July that pregnancy is tough for her the second time around. Posting a picture of her bump via Instagram the actress wrote, “The b*obs are big the belly is big the body is big. Man.. pregnancy is hard.”

She went on the write, “Giving love to all mamas who make it look effortless… this journey is hard as hell and also incredibly special. Lovely to have a little life inside and to day dream of all the new adventures to come buuuut almost impossible to get my own shoes on… sick of getting up 9 times a night to pee and looking at this weird body in the mirror that is not my own at the moment.”

“Women are so bad a*s, this was just a note to remind myself and remind others how’s strong and beautiful you are! WE GOT THIS!” Duff added.

Even though the second time around has been tougher than expected for Duff her big sister Haylie, 33, thinks being a mother of two will be easier for her little sister. A new mom of two herself The Real Girl’s Kitchen Host thinks the transition for Hilary will go seamlessly a much different scenario than what she has experienced.

“Hilary’s set of troubles is going to be different,” the 33-year-old actress told Us Weekly. “Luca is old enough to help himself into bed, whereas Ryan can’t do those things. Luca is really loving his independence now. Hilary’s experience will be different [than mine.] With my second … I can’t take a nap or read a book. You still have to take care of another child.”

Busy Philipps Admits her Youngest Daughter is Struggling

Busy Philipps Admits her Youngest Daughter is Struggling With her Hectic Work Schedule

Busy Philipps, 39, is struggling with raw emotions going back to work. And like all working mothers, she is working with her youngest daughter Cricket, who is having a hard time with the transition.

“My little one is not used to me working this much,” Philipps told Us Weekly at a Tropicana Kids event in New York City on Tuesday, August 7. “She’s used to having me all the time,” she revealed.

The actress is back to the grind, filming her upcoming E! talk show Busy Tonight while also promoting her memoir This Will Only Hurt a Little. The Dawson’s Creek alum is living up to her name and adds being a mother to her two girls Birdie, 9, and Cricket, 5, to the mix she is one busy bee.

My little ray of light.

A post shared by Busy Philipps (@busyphilipps) on

Busy recalled when she was on set filming Cougar Town her youngest daughter was only 18-months old. And when she was working on her HBO show Vice Principals, her work schedule was only a two day a week gig. Now that Cricket is older, she notices her mother not around as much.

“It’s been a little bit of a transition, me going to work every single day. She doesn’t understand. [She is like] ‘Why do you have to work all the time?’”

Philipps explained to Birdie that her jobs give their family the financial stability and she is able to provide things such as private school and private gym classes through her work.

The timing of Busy going back to a pack filled work schedule didn’t help the issue at hand. Philipps admits that returning to her projects in the summer while her daughters are out of school has made the transition more noticeable. She is confident once her girls are back to school some normalcy will return to their household.

“I think it’s because I started working the show during the summer, it’s more noticeable,” she added that her youngest will “figure it out.”

And like any working mom, the actress has those times where she is flooded with guilt and feels like she is failing at motherhood.  “Sometimes I have those days where I’m like, ‘I was a bad mom today,’” she admitted. “I fall into that trap where you say the thing that you’re not supposed to say, as a mom.”
