Hilary Duff Shares Sweet Never-Before-Seen Photos in Honor of Daughter Banks' First Birthday

Happy first birthday, baby Banks!

To commemorate her younger child’s milestone, Hilary Duff shared an adorable montage to Instagram including some of the sweetest — and silliest  — moments with Banks Violet over the past year.

The slideshow, put to the tune of Stevie Wonder’s “Isn’t She Lovely,” is full of never-before-seen shots of the now 1-year-old, Duff, the actress’ fiancé, Matthew Koma and her 7-year-old son Luca from her previous marriage with Mike Comrie.

“Banks 🐻 what a year,” Duff, 32, began the heartfelt caption on the video. “You made mommy a mommy again, you made daddy a daddy (the absolute best) you made bruvah a brother (the absolute best) you are spirited and funny and brave and edible and we are so lucky that on this day one year ago you made your arrival and made our family the four pack that we are!”

She sweetly continued, “Happy birthday beautiful…you get all the birthday cake today!”
