The 33-year-old actress - who is currently pregnant with her third child - has been undergoing regular testing in order to shoot her TV series 'Younger' in New York amid the global pandemic.

And over Christmas, the former 'Lizzie McGuire' star - who has Luca, eight, with ex-husband Mike Comrie and Banks, two, with current husband Matthew Koma - had to take a visit to hospital after her eye "started to look weird".

However, she has reassured her fans that her eye is "fine" since being prescribed antibiotics to treat the infection.

Giving a round up of what she and her family got up to during the holidays, Hilary informed her fans on her Instagram Story: "Then my eye started to look weird.... and hurt .... A lot...


"Took a little trip to the emergency room. I got an eye infection from all the Covid tests at work.... Cuz you know, 2020, and all."

She added: "PS.... My eye is fine, needed antibiotics."

Hilary had to quarantine away from her kids late last year after being exposed to coronavirus.

However, after she tested negative for the virus, she was reunited with her brood in November.

She posted a picture on her Instagram Story of herself hugging her kids, and wrote: “Not totally in the clear but looking positive and by that I mean negative!”

Meanwhile, Hilary revealed she's expecting her third child in October, by posting a sweet video of her growing baby bump on Instagram.

She wrote: "We are growing!!! Mostly me ... (sic)”

Hilary gave birth to her first child when she was 24 and she initially found the experience to be quite "isolating".

However, she also admitted that she'd always dreamed of having children.

The actress previously shared: "I'd say it was a little isolating in the beginning because I didn't have any friends that had babies yet. But I had been working for such a long time that it felt like a natural step for me and I always knew I wanted to be a mom.

"I always knew that was going to be my number one priority in life. So I felt ready on some fronts and a little scared on others, but I really only got scared once I was pregnant."
