Hilary Duff and her boyfriend just announced her pregnancy in the most adorable way

If you had the honour of growing up during the Noughties, you'll be well acquainted with Hilary Duff. A mainstay of the Disney Channel, Duff was the perfect antidote to Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen and their never-ending European adventures. Certainly, whether she was playing Lizzie McGuire or Sam from A Cinderella Story, Duff's characters were actually relatable to the 14-year-old experience - I mean, you could probably afford to buy Lizzie's outfits, unlike those of Marissa and Summer from The O.C.

And while Duff may not be such a frequent presence on our screens these days, we still remain fascinated by what she might be up to. Case in point: Hilary Duff is pregnant and the internet can't get enough of the news and her adorable relationship with her boyfriend, Matthew Koma.

Tween sensation, Hilary Duff, has confirmed that she's expecting a daughter with Matthew Koma. Duff, who also has a son, Luca, with her ex-husband Mike Comrie, took to Instagram to make the announcement, and to show off her burgeoning baby bump.

"Guess what guys! @matthewkoma and I made a little princess of our own and we couldn’t be more excited!!!!!" the 30-year-old captioned the snap.

Now, if you're scratching your head and asking yourself who Matthew Koma is... well, same. According to the internet, he's a singer, songwriter, and producer - but most importantly - Duff's mum loves him. In a recent interview with E News, the actress shared that her mum was all for their relationship: "My mom was at Matt's birthday and she was like, ‘I just love him. I love him so much. He's the best.' I'm like, 'I'm here. I exist, you know? You're always on my side!'" she said.

But not only that, they've had their fair share of problems, and they're honest about it. During her appearance on The Talk in December, Duff revealed that she and Koma have broken up twice in the past, and she attributed both splits to bad timing.

"I think that you have history and a past with someone and love, and just because it doesn’t work out the first time, the second time,” the Younger star explained. "As long as there’s not too much damage done, then, it can always work out again."

So while 2017 may have been a challenging year for the couple, it seems like everything's been peachy ever since. As Duff joked on the show, "Third time's the charm!"

But, to get back to the baby stuff, it appears that Duff's 6-year-old son, Luca, is overwhelmed at the prospect of having a baby sister. So much so, in fact, that he's already been thinking about names.

"We’re up for any kind of suggestions, but Luca thinks ‘Cofant Croissant’ is like, the coolest name," Duff said while on The Late Late Show with James Corden. "There would be no confusion. And when I just refer to it as ‘Cofant,’ and I’m like, ‘That would be so cool, no one at school’s going to be named Cofant,’ He’s like ‘Croissant. Cofant Croissant.’ It goes together. There’s no separating the two."

"It’s concerning," she added. "I think he has pretty good taste… It’s pretty strong right?"

Too adorable, right?
