"All I can say is @riawna and @nikkilee901 love me a lot," she joked in the caption. "1 - for saying yes to another crazy change this late in my pregnancy (at least I didn't cut [my] bangs!)

"And 2 - it took all damn day! Love you guys so much."

Fans loved the bold new look

Fans were in love with Hilary's drastic new look with singer Mandy Moore complimenting: "You're the coolest, lady."

And her friend Riawna jested: "At least you didn't cut [your] bangs, OR GO BROWN (again!)." The hair stylist added that'd she happily spend another day dying Hilary's hair, playfully insisting they go pink if the unborn baby is a girl.

Others fans praised the "mermaid hair" that the star had achieved, while another added: "If this is what feeling blue looks like, we don't mind!"

The star will be welcoming a new addition to her family in just a few weeks

Hilary is due to give birth to her third child in just a matter of weeks, but she's previously revealed that this pregnancy hasn't been plain sailing.

In an Instagram Stories post, she shared a snapshot of her laying down on her bed and wrote: "When the pregnancy sciatica gets you."

Sciatica is where the sciatic nerve, which runs from your lower back to your feet, is compressed or irritated.

The star also attended hospital over the Christmas holidays when she picked up an eye infection. The actress claimed the infection came from frequent COVID testing, but this claim has been widely disputed.
