“We’re in the thick of it, and it feels good,” Hilary Duff tells PEOPLE of her family of five

These days, Hilary Duff’s life is full of joy — and plenty of juggling.

On March 24, the Younger actress and her husband, singer-songwriter Matthew Koma, both 33, welcomed daughter Mae James, who joins their older daughter Banks Violet, 2, and Duff’s son Luca Cruz, 9, from her first marriage.

“I have help, but babies just want their mom. Even Luca is still like, ‘Mom, Mom, Mom.’ Mom cooks the thing the right way, and Mom packs the bag the right way. It’s crazy,” Duff says of her new life as a mom of three.

“It’s a learning curve to throw a newborn into the mix. A lot of people have been like, ‘That third kid really gets you.’ And they’re right!”

Duff finished filming the seventh and final season of Younger (streaming on Paramount+) when she was eight months pregnant and released her New York Times best-selling children’s book My Little Brave Girl just before Mae was born. Soon, she’ll get back to work on her next project: producing and starring in Hulu’s How I Met Your Mother spin-off, How I Met Your Father.

So for now, Duff is relishing this rare time off.

“I’m so in love with all my kids,” she says, “and I love this mayhem.”

Hilary Duff on growing up in the spotlight and the Lizzie McGuire reboot
“It’s not like I didn’t sneak off and party and get drunk,” says the actress

“‘Woah! What’s that?!'” Hilary Duff is walking me through her mid-century-modern Hollywood home, doing an impression of her husband, Matthew Koma. She takes me past chic velvet curved sofas towards a stylish monochrome tiled kitchen and explains,“I’ve rearranged the house, like, 19 times.

“Matt will come in and the chairs that were in our bedroom are now in the hallway or there’ll be a new piece of art I’ve bought and he’s like, ‘What is going on? Are you OK?’ And I’m like, ‘I’m just bored!’”

With no sign of lockdown easing in Los Angeles when we speak on a video call five months into the pandemic, the 33-year-old actress and former Disney star is almost out of options.

With filming for the seventh series of her TV show Younger on hold, along with other projects, she’s tried walking meditation in the hills around the home she shares with musician Koma and her two children.

When that didn’t work, Duff took up guitar lessons on Zoom, or rather, hiding from her kids in the bathroom twice a week while she practises old-school theme tunes from films like Batman and Mission: Impossible.

And then, of course, there are the “quarantine distanced dinners” with her best mates, as well as looking after her and Koma’s daughter Banks, two, and her son Luca, eight, from her first marriage.

“There are times where I’m like, ‘I need to go and drink too much wine with my girlfriends.’ You know what I mean? My husband’s like, ‘You go, I’ve got the kids.’ He could be in quarantine for years more!

He’s like, ‘We have everything we need, what’s bad about this?’ I’m a homebody too, but I do need to go out with my girlfriends once in a while.”

Hilary Duff in lockdown is basically all of us. This should come as no surprise to anyone who came of age with Duff as the Disney Channel’s teen queen Lizzie McGuire in the early ’00s.

Hilary heeft een interview gehad met People Magazine over haar samenwerking met Kohls. Hierin praat ze ook over het schuldgevoel dat ze had doen dochter Banks geboren was.

The Younger actress is honoring her fellow moms this Mother’s Day by teaming up with Kohl’s on their Amazing Moms Contest, running through April 15

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.”

Hilary Duff Is ‘Living Cleaner’ for Her Kids and the Planet: ‘It Only Takes a Little Time, and Makes a Big Difference’
Uniting a blended family takes work. So does launching an earth-aware business and giving your lifestyle an eco-makeover. Newlywed mom Hilary Duff is up for the challenge.

Hilary Duff couldn’t stop thinking about the fires in Australia while on her honeymoon in January. “We were in Africa, watching free and happy animals, and across the ocean things were burning down,” Duff says of her once-in-a-lifetime trip with her new husband, Matthew Koma. “We were devastated.”

Anxiety about the planet is a familiar feeling to almost any parent. If one form of adulting is thinking, “Someone should do something,” and realizing that someone might be you, the nerve-racking next step is figuring out how you might save the world for your kids, even when parts of it are literally up in flames.

For Duff, thinking of herself as a change agent has been part of a bigger progression. In the early ’00s she played Lizzie McGuire, a basic teen (back when that wasn’t an insult) working her way through sticky situations with teachers, friends, and an annoying little brother. In the ensuing decades between childhood star and adult actress, Duff, now 32, neither got mired in major scandals nor slipped into anonymity like some of her Disney Channel peers. Instead, she’s worked steadily and become a relatable cultural icon. TV Land’s Younger, in which she plays a publishing boss, will soon be in its seventh season and has ranked as the top cable comedy among women 18 to 49. Meanwhile, Duff has been raising Luca, 7, and now Banks, 16 months, in Los Angeles. She handles school drop-off many days and video chats from a set when needed.

Hilary is te zien op de cover van Redbook Magazine met een nieuwe fotoshoot door fotograaf Eric Ray Davidson. edit: Enkele nieuwe outtakes en scans van het tijdschrift zijn toegevoegd.

How to tune out haters, and when to take them on. How to let bygones truly be bygones. How to make yourself a priority without feeling (too) guilty. When life hits a pothole, you can wince and wait for it to pass — or you can pull a Hilary Duff. She’s found her balance as a working single mom, and discovered an unexpected well of inner strength and wisdom that you’re gonna want to access too. You’ll see.

Lately, Hillary Duff has been writing a daily gratitude list in a little notebook. “I’m kind of addicted,” admits the actress and singer, 29, over lunch outside at a laid-back café in Studio City, CA. Most of her entries have been about Luca, 5, her son, whose custody she shares with ex-husband Mike Comrie. “My last one was, ‘I’m grateful for the skip in Luca’s step.'”

That journal is just one part of Hilary’s attempt to nd the right balance of work, family, and time for herself. “As I get older, I feel more comfortable ‘leaning out,'” she says. “I don’t need to cram every day full, because I can and because I’m capable. I have worked my whole life.” That’s no exaggeration: Hilary’s been earning a paycheck since the age of 6, when she danced with a touring ballet company and began appearing in TV commercials. Two years later she moved from Texas to Los Angeles, growing up on sets like the Disney Channel’s Lizzie McGuire. She’s also made five studio albums, and this April begins filming the fourth season of her TV Land series Younger.

Yet despite her years and years in the spotlight, she’s weirdly down-to-earth and, frankly, super girlfriend-y. After offering to run inside and grab my salad when it doesn’t appear with hers, Hilary gets honest about recent ups and downs that have made her stronger, and learning to give herself permission not to do it all. If you can use some lessons on finding breathing room in your own life, start here.

On having more children: “I’ve gotten over the fact that I’m not going to have a baby that’s close in age with Luca. It sucked when everyone would be like, ‘When are you having another?’ I’d be like, “Do you know what’s happening right now? I’m not having another.” You get engaged: ‘When’s the wedding?’ You get married: “When’s the baby?” You have a baby: ‘When’s the next one?’ … I’m cherishing the now. Besides, watch: I’ll probably get some evil spawn of Hilary the next time around.”

On dealing with mom guilt: “I always feel torn or guilty about something. I’m not working right now, and at first I stressed about that, like, “Oh, I shouldn’t stay still this long.” And that’s ridiculous. I have a child; it’s totally fine to not be slammed all the time. It feels really good to not be on someone else’s schedule — besides Luca’s. I’m basically his chauffeur!”

On co-parenting her son, Luca, with ex-husband Mike Comrie: “Some of my friends tell me, ‘God, it must be so nice, you get a break from your kid because you share him.’ I’m divorced, and it sucks. Well, it did suck for a while; now it’s just normal. But it’s true, I do get a break. I had Luca by myself for a few weeks, no help, when Mike was on the road, and when he got home I was like, ‘He’s yours! Bye!'”

On the dating scene: “I never think being single sucks until I go out in L.A. with my girlfriends and the options are terrible. I really attract the old men!”
