Actress and singer Hilary Duff has revealed that she has “secretly” kept her son Luca’s belly button.
“You know what was a big milestone? The belly button falling off,” Hilary told People magazine.
“That was a huge one. And then I wanted to keep it but my husband was like, ‘No, that’s gross, you can’t keep it!’ I’m like, ‘I’m totally keeping it,’ and I secretly kept it. But now it’s not a secret anymore. It’s in a Ziploc bag in the back of my makeup drawer,” Hilary said.
The first-time mum is clearly relishing every experience with baby Luca. “Just to have your baby thrive and knowing that you’re doing that and you’re responsible – it’s such a rewarding feeling,” Hilary said.
“The day is exciting if he makes a new face or he gets to take a real bath instead of a sponge bath,” Hilary added.
After recently saying that she’s learning to let go when it comes to others looking after Luca, it seems there are still some things that Hilary’s is unwilling to hand over.
