She has since commented back, “Thanks for the promotion babe.”

The news comes months after the “Lizzie McGuire” star revealed that she and her boyfriend had welcomed the birth of their first daughter together in October.

“Banks Violet Bair this little bit has fully stolen our hearts! She joined our world at home on Thursday afternoon and is absolute magic,” Duff captioned a sweet picture of her and Koma holding their little girl all wrapped up in a blue blanket.

As previously reported, the actress made headlines last year when news broke that the pair were expecting with another post on her social media account.

“Guess what guys! @matthewkoma and I made a little princess of our own and we couldn’t be more excited!!!!!!” the Disney star shared.

It came following headlines that the two had broken up and gotten back together again for the third time.

“Timing is such a big deal and third time’s a charm!” Duff shared in December 2017. “I think that, you have history and a past with someone and love, and just because it doesn’t work out the first time, the second time, as long as there’s not so much damage done, then it can always work out again.”

She also has a six-year-old son, Luca Cruz, whom she shares with her ex-husband, Mike Comrie.
