Almost two years ago, Hilary and Matthew welcomed their first child together, Banks Violet Bair, via an intimate home water birth.
Hilary had previously given birth to her oldest son Luca Cruz in 2012, when she was married to her first husband, former professional hockey player Mike Comrie.
In a conversation with PureWow from January, Hilary admitted that she initially was overcome with a feeling of ‘guilt’ after getting pregnant with Banks.
‘The guilt that I felt for bringing her into the world was so big,’ as Luca had been an only child and the main beneficiary of her attention for six years at the time.
‘It was just he and I for so long that he was like, ‘Why? Why, Mom? Why would you do this? I really just love the way it is,’ she remembered. ‘And it wasn’t bratty, it was just so sad.’
But everything was better once Banks finally arrived.
‘He came in after I had her. I was just holding her, and the look on his face was an absolute shock. He just said, “That’s my sister!” And he had to sneeze, so he ran out of the room and was like, “I’ll be right back.” He let out this huge sneeze in the hallway and said, “I had to sneeze and I knew I couldn’t do it in here near her,”‘ she recounted.
