Welp, it looks like a former Disney celeb is causing a bit of "controversy" -- and not because she's fighting with her weed-smoking neighbor again. Hilary Duff is happy she's having a girl. And apparently, confessing how "excited" she is to have a daughter is a big no-no as people are really coming for her.

  • Hilary Duff revealed she's expecting her second child.

    "Guess what guys! @matthewkoma and I made a little princess of our own and we couldn't be more excited!!!!!!" Hilary Duff wrote in her pregnancy reveal Instagram post.

    Hilary and Matthew's daughter will be the first child the couple has together. The Younger star has a 6-year-old son named Luca with her ex-husband, Mike Comrie.

  • She recently opened up to Ryan Seacrest about expecting a baby girl and how "nervous" she was to have another boy.

    "I was so nervous beforehand because I thought for sure I was going to have a boy," the expectant celeb mom confessed on the On Air with Ryan Seacrest radio show June 12 about wanting a daughter. "I have a boy already -- which would have been great, and I'm obsessed with [my son] Luca -- but I just wanted one of each. My sister has girls and I feel like I'm really girly. But obviously for the past six years, I've bought, like, monsters and trucks and planes. Luca is into all the boy stuff, so everything is blue and green. I was just ready for pink and purple stuff. I'm so excited. It's really fun."

  • And people are actually mad Hilary expressed happiness having a girl instead of a boy.


    We're not kidding. The negative reaction to Hilary's confession is pretty crazy.

  • Folks are seriously pissed.

  • Okay ... let's all take five.


    Contrary to all the mom-shaming, Hilary isn't the first mom -- or will be the last -- to admit she's happy to have a girl or boy.

    ... so let's just chill with all the condemnation.
