Hilary Duff gave birth to her beautiful daughter Banks five months ago! To honour her birthday, she shared an incredibly intimate video of her home water birth on Instagram.
WATCH: The moment Hilary Duff's daughter hugs her after her home water birth
"I’ve been wondering for a long time if I would ever share this video as it is extremely personal...it was so absolutely lovely and rewarding (and shocking) that after giving birth to my baby girl we hugged...for the first time," she captioned the video.
"In my mind I like to believe that she was saying good job mom. Go team go. We did it. Together. Matt provided such a safe calm strength, my mommy and sissy were there to cheer me on, and of course my birth angels to make sure all was well and big brother (downstairs deep in legos). I cannot believe this day was only 5 months ago!! It seems like B has been here with us all along. The time is already going so fast..she tried avocado yesterday! Anyway... feeling blessed for this full hectic life and all the people in it. Happy 5 months Banks (oh and thanks for quitting colic) that was a doozy."
Hilary told People last November that she went into labour at 12:30am, "for a really long time" before she could begin pushing. She even told her boyfriend Matthew Koma at one point, "You have to shut up. You're going to die if you say that again."
Matthew commented on the beautiful video, "Proud is an understatement. Let's do it again".
