Mae James Bair was born on Wednesday, March 24th 2021 and is Hilary’s second daughter with husband Matthew Koma. She posted a picture with the caption: “Mae James Bair- We LOVE you beauty 3-24-21.”
The couple’s first child – Banks Violet Bair – was born in October 2018.
Entertainment Tonight notes that Hilary’s co-star Molly Bernard (who plays Lauren Heller) flew to Los Angeles for the birth.
As for filming Younger, Hillary’s baby bump became increasingly visible during the shoot for the final episodes and Darren Star reveals that they had to think smart, placing “bigger and bigger things” in front of her to hide the pregnancy in aims to preserve the continuity of the Younger narrative.
Continuing to explain the situation, Darren addressed how Hilary’s pregnancy influenced the filming process:
“When I told her we wanted to get back to work in October , she said, ‘That’s great because I’m having a baby in March.’ And I thought, ‘Oh my god, we really have to stick to this schedule because otherwise I don’t know what we’re going to do this season’. The baby was calling the shots. She gave us the right kind of pressure to make this season happen.”
Sutton Foster shared a lovely story too: “I have this amazing video of my daughter holding [Duff’s 2-year-old daughter] Banks when she was a little baby and then when Hilary was pregnant this season, my daughter, Emily, was asking her questions about the baby in her belly. We’ve all become like this family and it’s beyond what we do on set.”
Nico Tortorella also added that “Hilary is such an incredible woman and the ways in which she has brought these children into this world are incredible”, saying “… there is something so special about how she lives her life and how she carries people, quite literally.”
