Hilary Duff’s Son Luca Chose a Unique Name for His Future Sister

Hilary Duff’s baby-to-be could be named Cafont Croissant – if it was up to her son, Luca.

“We’re up for any kind of suggestions, but Luca thinks Cafont Croissant is, like, the coolest name,” the Younger actress, 30, joked during The Late Late Show with James Corden on Monday, June 11.

“When I just refer it as ‘Cafont,’ and I’m like, ‘That would be so cool, nobody at school’s gonna be named Cafont.’ He’s like, ‘Croissant. Cafont Croissant,’” she added. “It, like, goes together, there’s no separating the two.”

Duff announced on June 8 that she and boyfriend Matthew Koma are expecting their first child together, a baby girl. She shares Luca, 6, with ex-husband Mike Comrie.

“The beginning was a little… he was surprised, and now he’s warming up to the idea,” Duff said of Luca on Monday night. “I think it’s a girl, but he told his friends at school the other day that he’s having a sister that’s part red-butt monkey, so we’ll see. We never know.”

The former Disney star finalized their divorce in 2016, more than two years after their initial split. She and Koma began dating in January 2017. They split that March, but reconciled months later.

“I think [if] 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 too much damage done — then, it can always work out again,” she told The Talk late last year.
