December 2017: Speaking about their on-off relationship, Hilary told The Talk hosts: "I mean, this is the third time that we’ve dated... Timing is such a big deal... third time’s a charm!" She continued:

"I think that you have history and a past with someone and love, and just because it doesn’t work out the first time, the second time, as long as there’s not too much damage done, then, it can always work out again."

March 2018: They tell fans they've added a new member to their family. "Hey guys! We adopted an old dog," Hilary shared on Instagram. "Thank you so much @loveleorescue #welovelucy," she added, while Matthew posted, "I Love Lucy and she…looks fairly indifferent towards me. I will Ricky Ricardo her heart."

June 8, 2018: They announce they're expecting their first child together. Showing off her bump, she wrote on Instagram: "Guess what guys! @matthewkoma and I made a little princess of our own and we couldn’t be more excited!!!!!!"

October 2018: The couple welcome daughter Banks Violet Bair. "This little bit has fully stolen our hearts! She joined our world at home on Thursday afternoon and is absolute magic," the singer captioned an adorable picture of the newborn.

May 9, 2019: Matthew and Hilary get engaged after the producer pops the question. "I asked my best friend to marry me," he wrote alongside two very photos of Hilary showing off the ring.

December 21, 2019: Eight months after the proposal, the pair get married in an intimate ceremony held in their garden.

February 14, 2020: The musician reminisces about their wedding day in a sweet Valentine's Day message.

I got to marry my Valentine last year, and become a daddy to a mini Valentine the year before that. The luckiest. Ba, thank you for being my 5x Valentine and for bringing out the Hallmark in me. Here’s to 80 more...unless science allows for a 200 year lifespan. In which case, I’ll give you a 150 year out...since you’ll still be really sharp and fit and beautiful and smart at 150, you’ll pull a young 100 chump who writes better songs.

May 7, 2020: Matthew celebrates their one-year proposal anniversary (yes, that's evidently a thing).

So cute.
