There’s a heatwave that is currently hitting many parts of the country and in Los Angeles, it reached 108 degrees yesterday. Being in that type of heat can be difficult for anyone, but for pregnant women, it can be absolutely miserable. Growing a whole human being can make women warmer than they normally are otherwise.
Actress Hillary Duff was seen out in Los Angeles yesterday grabbing some fresh fruit to help deal with the heat. Not only does fruit have cooling properties but often have a high water content which helps with hydration.
Duff is expecting her second child, the first with boyfriend Matthew Koma, who will be a first-time dad.
She shares a son, Luca, with her ex-husband.
Duff and Koma have been pretty open about their relationship and love for one another.
Just the other day, Duff shared a photo of the two kissing in a pool, with her bare baby bump proudly displayed.
The photo looks to be taken on the 4th of July, if the red and blue hearts in her caption are any indication.
This time around, Duff is expecting a girl.
She posted a sweet gender reveal a few weeks ago on Instagram that showed her family and friends gathered around on Mother’s Day as they found out the gender of the new baby.
Duff’s excitement at the prospect of having a girl is really sweet.
A few months ago we had one of the most exciting Mother’s Day! Filled with amazing friends, family, mothers, and neighbors❤️ It was such a fun surprise! I can’t think of any other way to find out what was cooking in my belly than this….. the anticipation was brutal but the pay off was huge! I basically jumped 3 feet off the ground lol ? #hurryuplittlegirlwewanttomeetyou
Hopefully, this heat wave doesn’t last too long so that Duff can cool down and enjoy the rest of her pregnancy comfortably.
As summer has just started, that may be wishful thinking. Good thing central air conditioning exists.
Staying out in these type of temperatures while pregnant for extended periods of time isn’t recommended.
While a due date hasn’t been revealed, given the timetable, Duff is currently around 6 or 7 months along.
