Hilary Duff's family has gotten larger thanks to a pint-sized "Bair."

Last Friday (May 3), Duff and her husband of five years, Matthew Koma, welcomed their new daughter, Townes Meadow Bair, in a home water birth. With Koma, Bair marks her third daughter, while Duff shares a 12-year-old son, Luca, with her ex-husband, National Hockey League player Mike Comrie.

On Tuesday (May 7), Duff shared black-and-white pictures of Bair's birth. "Townes Meadow Bair 🧸 , now we know why she made us wait so long…She was perfecting those Cheeks!" Duff wrote in the caption.

She continued, "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."

Duff surprised fans with a pregnancy announcement via a holiday greeting card last December, just weeks before Christmas.

"So much for silent nights," reads the front side of the card. "Buckle up Buttercups, we’re adding one more to this crazy bunch! The Duff, Bair, Comrie Crew."

Embracing the fullness of motherhood while taking a step back from acting, Duff has become an author, publishing children's books My Brave Little Girl and last year's My Little Sweet Boy.
