FORMER Disney star Hilary Duff recently became a mother of three after giving birth to her daughter on March 24.
Who are Hilary Duff’s parents?
Born in Houston, Texas, Duff is the youngest of two children of Robert Erhard Duff and Susan Collen.
Robert is a partner in a chain of convenience stores, while her Susan was a homemaker turned film and music producer.
The couple went through a nasty two-and-a-half year divorce back in 2008, that ended in Robert being jailed for 10-days for contempt.
He was accused of violating a court order prohibiting him from selling assets without the consent of his estranged wife.
He spent one night in jail after he posted bail, the Houston Press reported at the time.
Susan was demanding her estrange ex-husband to fund $25,000 towards a party and gift for Hilary’s 21st birthday.
Ultimately a judge ruled that Robert hand over $12,500 for the bash.
Did Hilary Duff recently give birth?
Duff gave birth to her third child, Mae James Blair, on March 24, 2021.
The actress confirmed the news with a family photo holding her newborn in her birthing tub surrounded by her children Luca and Banks, and her husband Koma.
Like her daughter Banks, Duff had a water birth at her LA home.
A water birth occurs as a woman experiences labor and delivery in a tub of warm water often in her own home.
Mothers who want a natural childbirth, without medication or epidurals, choose water birth because it can provide a more natural experience as they sometimes find that being submerged in water provides more comfort during contractions.
In 2018, Duff gave details about the birth of Banks eventually sharing the video of the at-home birth on social media.
After giving birth to Banks she explained the decision to have at-home water birth saying: “I thought to myself that I want to get the full experience of what it is to bring a baby into the world and how incredible our bodies are,” Duff added.
Duff gave birth to her first child, Luca, at a hospital with an epidural but changed her mind thinking: “My body gave me this incredible little boy and now I get to have this little girl and I want to experience it to the fullest.”
After watching the documentary, The Business of Being Born, Duff discussed the idea to have a “natural, drug-free home birth” with Matthew who was supportive of the idea.
For her first at home birth she had three midwives and an “amazing doula”.
According to the photos that she and Matthew have posted of her most recent delivery, it seems that they chose to do it again this time around giving birth to Mae James Bair in their home through water birth.
What is Hilary Duff’s net worth?
The actress, singer-songwriter, producer, writer, and businesswoman is estimated to have a net worth of $25million, as of 2021.
The star has been working since she was 10 years old, first appearing in the film Casper Meets Wendy.
Her starring role as Lizzie McGuire made her around $975,000 making about $15,000 every episode.
She reportedly went on to make $1million dollars for the Lizzie McGuire movie at 16 years old.
