The birth of Luca Cruz was quite the show for Hilary Duff and family!
Duff recently made a visit to The Ellen DeGeneres Show in honor of a special Mother’s Day episode airing Friday (May 11). And Hilary shared her delivery story of 2-month-old Luca.
“It’s an amazing ride,” Duff, 24, told Ellen DeGeneres of being a mom. “Huge change right away.”
To Hilary, it was all smooth sailing.
“It was very easy,” she revealed. “I went into labor at about one in the morning and I very calmly had my bags packed and woke my husband [Mike Comrie] up after about three hours of walking up and down my hallway. Then I’m like, “Ok, it’s time to go. Let’s go now.’ We got in the car and drove to the hospital and that was it.”
But as time passed, and her family arrived, things got a bit more entertaining per se.
“My family gets there and we wait all day and everyone is hungry. We’re Southern and from Texas and my mom and my sister actually went down to the food court area,” Duff explained. During this time, the doctor came in said it was time to start pushing. “Things start rolling,” she went on. “All of the sudden the doors bust open and my sister and my mom come flying in. They’re like, ‘We got barbecue chips and root beer, guys.’ I [said], ‘What? I’m pushing!’ They were just arriving for a show with their chips and their root beer.”
If only this were all caught on film!
