Hilary Duff Gives Baby Boy a Yummy First Name

hilary duffHilary Duff gave birth to a healthy baby boy on March 20. She and hockey husband Mike Comrie welcomed son Luca Cruz weighing in at 7 pounds, 6 ounces -- Hilary and Luca are both doing fine and Hil shared via Twitter that she and Mike feel like the luckiest parents in the world. Aww.

Hilary, who's famous in my mind for singing Laguna Beach's fantastic theme song and for getting some over-sized veneers a few years ago, says she plans on eventually getting back in the studio and recording another album, then possibly going on tour. I'm sure her focus right now is on that beautiful bundle of joy, though. With a name like Luca, he can't help but be completely adorable!


Anything that sounds Italian is a great name in my book. I mean, what's not to love about Italy. It's pretty much the greatest country that ever was in terms of food and natural beauty, so naming your son something that brings to mind bowls of bolognese and a gorgeous 15th century church atop a rolling hill is a good choice.

Or is the name Spanish?

I hope Hilary, Mike, and Luca are all having fun right now getting to know one another. Hil's 24 years old, so I'm sure we'll be reading about how she got her pre-baby body back in no time and how amazing she looks -- the young ones always snap right back into shape. Luckies!

Congrats to the happy family and may Luca grow up to be a blond pop star like his mommy or a bad ass hockey player like his daddy. 

Now where's my pasta.

Do you like the name Luca Cruz?
