Praising the hospital’s nurses and doctors, Hilary added: “[The staff] took care of us. They were really good. It was a long night in the hospital, but it was fine. She’s happy and on the mend, and she looks great."
The former ‘Lizzie McGuire’ star had taken to her Instagram Stories on Monday (10.06.19) to reveal her little girl had been in hospital but didn’t reveal what was wrong with her.
She wrote: “I actually have Banks’ vomit in my hair and I may or may not have the energy to bathe after a day with a sick baby and a night at the hospital.

Hilary and songwriter Matthew, 32, announced their engagement last month.
The ‘Yesterday’ singer shared pictures of herself showing off her engagement ring on Instagram, and wrote: "He asked me to be his wife."
Matthew also posted the same images on his own Instagram account, alongside the caption: "I asked my best friend to marry me... @hilaryduff (sic)"
The couple were first romantically linked back in early 2017, and although they broke things off a few months later, Hilary began dropping hints they were back together by September of that year.
