According to Hilary Duff, her little bundle of joy is also a purveyor of luck.

On Thursday, the 35-year-old appeared on the Mother Daze podcast hosted by Sarah Wright Olsen and Teresa Palmer.

The podcast centres on all things parenting and motherhood — including breastfeeding, home birth stories, mental health tips and more.

In the episode, the actress opened up about being pregnant with her youngest child when she got asked to star on the sitcom "How I Met Your Father." Duff had her daughter, Mae, just one week later.

At the time, the mother-of-three revealed she was "extraordinary pregnant" and felt her baby brought a wave of luck — something she hopes all mothers experience.

"I feel like every time I have a baby, the baby brings luck," the Disney alum told Olsen and Palmer.

After Duff's manager asked her to speak with the show's creators, the "Lizzie McGuire" star thought, "Why do they want to talk to me? I don't understand — Why am I getting a job right now, like, what's happening?"

She credited the moment to her unborn child, saying: "I think that babies bring like — obviously themselves, which is a wonderful gift — but they've always brought me such luck."

The actress also acknowledged how "hard" it is to go back to work shortly after giving birth.

"Going back to work after having a baby is hard and you just kind of make it happen...and you make space for it!" she said.

Later in the episode, Duff, who has one child — Luca, 10 — with ex-husband Mike Comrie and two children —Mae, 1, and Banks, 4 —with current husband Matthew Koma, spoke about the positives of blended parenting and how her, Koma and Comrie make it work.

"Of course there's challenging times but fighting is not an option. We put our own selves aside and realize the important thing is every child getting what they need," she shared.

Duff added that "you have to set personal boundaries" when blending families and "appreciate what was in the past to move forward in the best way possible."

When explaining the idea of blended families to her children, she revealed that you have to "frame it as more."

"You just get more love, relationships and experiences," she said. "...Luca and I aren't always together for example, but I know he's still happy and safe."
