For Hilary Duff, the debate over her daughter’s car seat is so yesterday.
During a recent conversation with romper, published Feb. 23, the How I Met Your Father actress addressed the criticism surrounding a video of her and Matthew Koma‘s 3-year-old daughter Banks in the backseat of a moving car without a car seat.
“The other day—my publicist would absolutely kill me if I brought this up,” she told the outlet. “There was this huge story that came out because my friend Molly [Bernard] was in the backseat of our car with Banks without her car seat. It’s not like I’m driving on the 405 with my kids in the backseat without a car seat. You have no context. You don’t know where I biasa.”
Hilary, who is also mom to son Luca, 9, and daughter Mae, 10 months, then explained that she sometimes lets her children sit in the front seat of her car so they can pretend they’re driving home. “You’re telling me you’ve never put your kids in the backseat to drive a bock before with an adult back there?” she continued. “I’m like, ‘Happy new year to you, too.’”
