Duff drank her pla­centa in a smoothie

Toronto Sun - - SHOWBIZ -

Hi­lary Duff drank her pla­centa in a “de­light­ful” smoothie af­ter giv­ing birth to her daugh­ter Banks.

The Younger ac­tress and her mu­si­cian boyfriend Matthew Koma wel­comed daugh­ter Banks Vi­o­let, their first child to­gether, in Oc­to­ber, and Hi­lary opted to con­sume her pla­centa by drink­ing it in a smoothie.

“It was the most de­light­ful smoothie I’ve ever had,” she said on Dr. El­liot Ber­lin’s In­formed Preg­nancy pod­cast, which was recorded 10 days af­ter she gave birth. “I haven’t had a smoothie that de­light­ful since I was 10. It was calo­riefilled with juice and fruit and ev­ery­thing de­li­cious.”

Dur­ing the pod­cast, which was re­leased on Thurs­day, Hi­lary ex­plained she was ini­tially “a lit­tle wigged out” about eat­ing her pla­centa, but she de­cided to try it af­ter hear­ing the­o­ries about it pre­vent­ing post­par­tum de­pres­sion and stop­ping post-birth bleed­ing.

The 31-year-old said she’s been feel­ing great since drink­ing the smoothie and is con­sum­ing the rest of her pla­centa in ice cube form.

“I heard some­thing weird about pills,” she ex­plained. “I heard pla­centa burps are not ideal.”

Other celebri­ties who have talked about eat­ing their pla­centa in­clude Nikki Reed, Kim and Kourt­ney Kar­dashian and Kather­ine Heigl.
