Like many second-time mothers, Hilary Duff struggled with mom guilt after welcoming her daughter Banks in late 2018.
“A newborn needs their mom so much, and so much of that time is sitting and nursing. You’re kind of incapable of physically doing anything else with another child,” the 32-year-old actress — who’s partnering with Kohl’s for their Amazing Moms Contest (open now through April 15) — tells PEOPLE exclusively. “[My son] Luca was almost seven when I had her. I had a lot of guilt and felt like, ‘Am I giving him enough?’”
But after seeing Luca (whom Duff shares with ex-husband Mike Comrie) embrace his role as big brother to Banks, who turns 2 in October, Duff says she felt a weight lift off her shoulders.
“Their bond was so sweet right away. It helped me overcome that [guilt] because I saw that he was old enough to [understand],” says the Younger star. “If I could give him a finite, ‘Hey, I have to do this for the next 35 minutes, and then it’s going to be your time with me,’ he could wrap his head around that. The age gap is actually really great. They’re buddies.”
Over the last couple of weeks, Duff has been social distancing at home with her kids and husband Matthew Koma. And while it hasn’t been easy, the entertainer is cherishing her extra time at home with her family while keeping her children occupied.
“I’ve never been spread so thin because I’m now keeping a house clean, keeping everybody fed for almost every single meal and doing four-plus hours of homeschooling a day,” says Duff. “It’s not like I can just give Luca an assignment and be like, ‘Here, you have 30 minutes or you have an hour.’ I have to be there with him helping every step of the way.”
