Luca Cruz Comrie: Hilary Duff's Baby Boy

Lizzie McGuire's a mom! Hilary Duff and husband Mike Comrie welcomed a baby boy named Luca Cruz Comrie on March 20, the singer and actress wrote on her personal website Thursday.

Tuesday evening, we became proud parents of a healthy 7 pound 6 ounce beautiful boy. We are overjoyed and feel like the luckiest parents in the world. He is surrounded by so much love!! Mom and baby are both doing extremely well.

This is the first child for the former Disney star, 24, and Comrie, 31, who recently retired from the NHL.

Duff announced her pregnancy on her personal blog in August, on her one-year anniversary with Comrie.

“We ... want to share the exciting news that… BABY MAKES THREE!!! We are extremely happy and ready to start this new chapter of our lives," she wrote.

She later revealed that their bundle of joy was a baby boy.

"It's just girls in my family so I'm not sure what I'm going to do with a little boy, but it's exciting," Duff said in a video on Celebuzz in January. "I think deep down inside I kind of wanted a little boy."

Toward the end of her pregnancy, Duff shared her excitement, anticipation and discomfort on Twitter.

"Ok! no joke.. When i get up my massively pregnant morning walk looks like a "walker" from "the walking dead" #cmooooon BABY," she tweeted.

Duff and Comrie began dating in 2007 and were married in August 2010 in Santa Barbara, Calif.
