Congratulations are in order for Hilary Duff and Matthew Koma! The couple have welcomed their third child together, the Disney star's fourth.

Their baby girl was born on May 3, and Hilary, 36, shared the first photos of their newborn and the at-home birth. The couple have named their baby Townes.

She captioned the announcement: "Townes Meadow Bair, now we know why she made us wait so long…She was perfecting those Cheeks!"

"I have been dreaming of holding you in my arms for months and the past 5 days of getting to know you, stare at you and smell you has been pure moments of magic. We all love you like you've been here all along beauty."

The Younger star is also a mom to son Luca Cruz Comrie, 12, shared with ex Mike Comrie. With her current husband Matthew, she is also a mom to daughters Mae James, three, and Banks Violet, five. Townes is Hilary and Matthew's third girl together.

Hilary and Matthew began dating in 2017, after they'd worked together on her 2015 album Breathe In. Breathe Out. In 2019, they announced their engagement after welcoming Banks and tied the knot the same year. Hilary announced her pregnancy with Townes last December.

The singer-songwriter and DJ shared his own version of the announcement with a hilarious statement that read: "My literal warrior goddess of a wife gave birth to our beautiful Townes Meadow Bair at home on 5/3/24." 

"She's happy, healthy, chunky and looks like nobody in our genetic pool so if anyone knows of @hilaryduff's whereabouts roughly 9 months ago to date, please reach out for a cash reward."

"I always am thinking about [music]," she said. "I never want to blame my kids for this, but I'm so immersed in motherhood right now and it's so much easier to book an acting job and be like, 'Okay, I have to be at work at 6:00 a.m. and I'll be done by 9:00 and then I'll be home'."

"It's hard to talk about it because the second I talk about it, people are like, 'It's happening!'"

The "Sparks" singer continued: "I am in the middle of my real life. [Music] is very much a part of my not-real life. From my past.And going to the studio feels so, 'Oh, my God, maybe we get something today, maybe we don't.' It doesn't feel like real work. I know that it is."

"I really believe that one day I'll be like, 'I have to do it.' There will be something that comes over me. It's gonna happen. I just don't know when."
