Matthew Koma shared a TikTok video of Hilary Duff trying to keep a low-profile after possibly spotting her ex.

Matthew, who is a member of the band Winnetka Bowling League, shared a TikTok to the band’s account where he and Hil are out to dinner. In the video, the mom of three has their daughter Banksy on her lap.

“Hil thinks her boyfriend … her ex-boyfriend is sitting at the restaurant near us but she can’t tell if it’s him or not,” Matthew is heard saying in the background as he films a mortified Hilary.

"Jason,” Matthew shouts, as a rosy-cheeked Hilary asks him to stop. The musician calls his name again. “Is it him? Is he looking?” he asks Hilary, who is now nervously twirling Banky's hair.

Unfortunately, the video ends before we get to find out if it was really him. Boo!

Their relationship lasted for a few months but then ended after their plans for the future didn't align. "They weren't on the same page," a source close to the former couple told People. "He wants to move to New York, but her life is in LA."

Even though they called it quits, Hilary told Cosmopolitan the following year, "It was definitely my first more serious relationship since my ex-husband."

According to his Instagram, Jason still appears to be a personal trainer. He has also trained other celebrities like John Krasinski and Emily Blunt.
