Hilary Duff Opened Up About Feeling “Scared” Her Third Child Will Be Another Girl

“I was like, ‘I should know, it’s inside my body. It’s my baby, I should know.’”

Hilary Duff got real candid about being pregnant with her third child on the Informed Pregnancy podcast — and even mentioned what she thinks the baby’s sex will be.

Despite her blue hair, Duff has decided to keep the baby’s sex a surprise. “I know the blue hair seems like we do know, but we really don’t,” she told host Dr. Elliot Berlin.

It’s worth noting that Duff first dyed her hair blue in April 2020, before she was pregnant.

That being said, Duff has an inkling that the baby is a boy. “I’m actually a little scared to have another girl because Banks was a tough cookie as a baby, but she’s so great now, so I could see it,” she continued.

“Honestly, I’m just saying boy. I really don’t have a strong feeling about it either way, which made me feel guilty for the longest time,” she added. “I was like, ‘I should know, it’s inside my body. It’s my baby, I should know.’”

However, regardless of the baby’s sex, Duff and Koma are “stoked and super excited.”

Of course, the mystery hasn’t stopped people around the couple from guessing.

She explained, “Everyone that’s close to me thinks boy, and then everyone that’s more of a stranger that’s like, ‘What are you having?’ they’re like, ‘We call girl.’”

Duff previously told People that she’d decided against having a gender reveal as she did with Banks, explaining, “unfortunately, during these times we felt it wasn’t really appropriate.”

She did say that her son Luca was hoping for a baby boy so that he could “share all his old toys.”

Now Duff is due any day, and told Dr. Berlin that she and Koma aimed to have a baby born by the time that the pandemic was done. “We actually planned to have another baby during quarantine — everything sounds like a good idea in quarantine!” she joked.
