Hilary Duff may forever be remembered as Lizzie McGuire from Disney's early-2000s show, but she's so much more than the role that made her a teen icon. Today, she's busy taking on the character Kelsey Peters, a confident young book editor, in the hilarious and heartfelt TV show Younger, while raising two young kids in real life. She just welcomed her second child, a baby girl named Banks Violet, in October of this year. With a new baby, 6-year-old son, Luca, a thriving career (and a stunning Los Angeles home), Duff certainly has her hands full.

"Having kids changes everything," she tells MyDomaine. "Life's not really about you anymore," the actress continues. While promoting one of her latest endeavors, a partnership with kids toy and clothing brand Cubcoats, Duff opened up about being a new mom again with MyDomaine. She shares how she approached pregnancy differently the second time around, what surprised her most about motherhood, why she makes time for self-care, and the gifts she's eyeing for both her kids this holiday season.
