Inside Hilary Duff’s secret wedding

Just Jared reported on Dec. 22 that Duff and Koma got married in their backyard in front of a few friends and family members. The wedding allegedly went down one day earlier.

“The wedding was at her house. It was small and low-key. Only family and close friends,” a source added to People.

“The ceremony started at sunset and they got married inside the house. When the ceremony was over, guests cheered. The reception was in a white tent in the backyard,” the source continued. “Her sister Haylie was very involved in the wedding prep too. Hilary and Haylie are very close.”

As of writing, neither Duff or Koma has publicly commented on their alleged nuptials. But Duff’s stylist, Jessica Paster, dropped a hint about the reported ceremony on Instagram. “Winter solstice … a day of luv,” she captioned a photo of what appears to be a bouquet.

Who is Matthew Koma?

According to AllMusic, Koma is a singer, songwriter, and producer. He’s reportedly worked with the likes of Bruce Springsteen, Kelly Clarkson, and Tinashe.

He and Duff met in the early 2010s and initially had a working relationship. They collaborated for the first time in 2015 when they created tracks for Duff’s album, Breathe In. Breathe Out.

After the studio sessions, a source told Us Weekly, “They had great chemistry in the studio. Hilary thinks Matt is very talented and cute.”

At the time, Duff was fresh out of her first marriage to NHL star Mike Comrie, with whom she shares a son, Luca, 7.
