Add a device from another Apple ID as another home hub

Add a device from another Apple ID as another home hub

Hi,

Does anyone know if it’s possible to add a connected device to an Apple ID other than the current home hub as a new / additional home hub?

Our current home hub is an old iPad (which can’t beat iOS 12) and it’s connected to my Apple ID. My girlfriend has a new iPad and with a second lock starting from Belgium, I want to use her iPad as a hub at home. However, when I activate his iPad as a home hub, I don’t see it as a possible hub on any device. Even if I deactivate the current hub at home and then activate its iPad as one, it is not yet visible.
