Hilary and Matthew's love story started in January 2017, a year after the actress' divorce with ex-husband Mike Comrie. Rumor has it that their romance quickly took off by March. However, a few months later, the "Younger" star started posting stuff on social media, hinting that they have reconciled and back in each other's arms.
They worked together for Hilary's album called "Breathe In Breathe Out." Matthew reportedly co-wrote and produced some songs in the said album. Since then, the couple has been inseparable and their relationship becomes stronger over time.
Meanwhile, Hilary surprised her fans with an Instagram photo showing off her baby bump in June 2018, revealing that she is pregnant with her first child with Matthew. "Guess what guys! @matthewkoma and I made a little princess of our own, and we couldn't be more excited!!!!!" Hilary wrote in the caption of the photo where Matthew is kissing her cheeks.
On October 25, 2018, Hilary and Matthew welcomed their daughter and named her Banks Violet Bair.
Fast forward to May 2019, Hilary announced that Matthew finally put a ring on it and saying that he finally asked her to be his wife.
