The news of their engagement comes nearly seven months after the birth of their first child, a little girl they named Banks Violet Blair.

Duff has a 6-year-old son, Luca, with her ex-husband Mike Comrie.

The actress has been open about her challenges while pregnant and in post-pregnancy. Most recently she shared a photo of herself breastfeeding her daughter and said how difficult it’s been pumping while at work.

“Let me tell you. Pumping at work sucks,” she wrote on Instagram. “I had zero down time and am usually pumping in a hair and make up trailer while four hands work to get me ready for the next scene with lots of other people around. Even if I had the luxury to be in my own room, it’s not even considered a “break” because you have to sit upright for the milk to flow into the bottles … I know many women are not able to [breastfeed] and for that I am sympathetic and very grateful that I could. For six wonderful months. But I needed a break. I was going to break. With the stress of a dropping milk supply and a baby that was getting bored or not caring about nursing when I was available to. I was sad and frustrated and feeling like a failure all of the time.”
