Okay, celebs have babies all the time. I get it. So do "real" people. 

But there's something about a childhood fave like Hilary Duff having her second child that really gets me going. 

Top that off with a little bit of a strange name and, my friends, we have a story on our hands.

I didn't even know she was pregnant and I'm feeling the love towards this little bundle of cuteness. Plus, her son, Luca, is actually the cutest. 

Hilary and her boyfriend, singer Matthew Koma, unveiled the cutie on Instagram.

Hellllooo, little fam goals! A little girl is so exciting! All they're missing in this pic is Luca, but the love in this photo is so pure!!!! Which doesn't surprise me because Hilary is truly a pure, angelic queen.

Seriously, not a bad thing could be said about this baby announcement.

I can't think of the last time a celeb had a baby and it was drama free, I needed this. 

Okay, okay, so we had a few Q's about the name choice...but even then, all the messages are full of love!

Because as any new parents would, they let the world know the name of the latest addition: Banks Violet Bair.

Which is...interesting. 

OKAY, I'll be honest, I love the songstress Banks so I didn't bat a lash, BUT it's not exactly a name you hear every day. And Banks is the singer's last name. So it's a little odd.

Like, I think we can all agreed that it's a missed opportunity that she didn't name her daughter Lizzie.

I guess it's okay because this girl will grow up with Lizzie McGuire being her literal mom and that's amazing, so we can settle for the Cody Banks reference.

Me eating my feelings thinking about what could have been:

And not even a middle shout-out for our girl, Lizzie?! A tragedy. Although, I think if she named the babe Lizzie, the world would implode from happiness.

I have no idea if Hilary Duff is a huge fan, but maybe this is her way of letting the world know? 

Either way, the name is cute AF and I am so here for Hilary's boyfriend's way of celebrating.

Matthew dyed his hair pink for her and melted my heart at the same time.

And even though we might question the name, Hilary had it picked out for a loooong time. A Twitter account dedicated to everything Hilary Duff pulled a quote the actress gave to People earlier this year:

Which I love! The whole "when you know, you know" kinda thing. 

Plus, mothers know best and Hilary is no exception.

"It's unique but it's not too weird. The name that we first thought we were gonna use is going to be her middle name, so we're like, 'Let's not stress over this anymore.'" A pretty wise statement, I'd say.

Even if we don't totally understand the name choice, I think it's safe to say that our love for Hilary Duff is forever.

I will never be able to think of Rome WITHOUT thinking of Lizzie finding her singing twin. I just can't. 

So the fact that she's a mom kind of throws me off a bit.

And it's not even her first kid!!! Like, I get it, she's older than me and everything — but my childhood??? Where did it go?!

But I do hope, for the sake of Hilary, really, that baby Banks doesn't get as sassy as Lizzie did.

Listen, I wanted my nose pierced SO bad because of this episode. But I chickened out really quickly once I realized needles were involved. 

But if Luca is any indication, I think both of the kids will handle the teenage years just fine.

Seriously, he's an angel. One time she just JOKED about sucking as a mom and he was having none of it. I need that kind of support in my life.

It's very apparent that little Banks is joining such a loving and fun family too.

Has a belly bump showdown ever looked this cute? I think not.

And even after writing all of this, I am still so...weirded out by the fact she has kids???

I guess this is what growing up is, my friends. It's a strange time when your Disney faves are having cute little kids.
