The star documented on Instagram how incredibly lucky she is after a "traumatic night" involving her youngest daughter, Mae James, who is a month shy of turning one, and how her husband, Matthew Koma, saved the day.

The baby is Hilary's second daughter with her husband. They also share Banks Violet, three, and Matthew is a step-dad to the star's first child with ex-husband Mike Comrie, Luca Cruz, nine.

The So Yesterday singer documented on her Instagram Stories Tuesday night how she faced a fear any parent can certainly relate to, losing your child's preferred blanket or toy that they're attached to.

She wrote: "Ok a very traumatic night. I lost Mae's baby yesterday while out with her and Banks."

She posted a series of texts she shared with her husband, as she struggled with the fact that she might have lost Mae's baby doll forever.

Her first text read: "My heart is breaking. I'm so sad. I feel like the worst mom."

Her husband was quick to mend her broken heart, writing back: "Far from a bad mom. You're kidding. It happens. We'll buy another one worst case and she'll love that one the same." Still, the Lizzie McGuire actress continued to stress over the situation, texting back: "I'm actually praying."
