Hilary Duff Bares All About Single Momdom In REDBOOK’s February Issue
These days, Hilary Duff is clearly in command of her personal and professional life. After a split from former hockey player Mike Comrie, the father of her 3-year-old son, Luca, and a long hiatus, she’s back at work: This summer she released her first studio album in eight years, Breathe In. Breathe Out. And she also has a starring role on Sex And The City creator Darren Star’s TV show Younger, in which she plays the work BFF of a newly single mom who lies about her age in order to get a job (Season 2 premieres January 13). In short, this mom has a lot on her plate.
When sitting down with REDBOOK, Hilary had no problem talking about it all—how the tabloids shamed her post-pregnancy body, how she sometimes has severe bouts of mom guilt, and her newfound perspective on marriage after her divorce.
On the way the press treated her post-baby body…“After I had Luca, I went out to, like, the breast-pump store—I was still huge—and I just had a comfortable outfit on. And the next day [in the tabloids] it was like, “Hilary debuts post-baby bod!” And I was like, “That’s not a debut! That’s an errand!” It was such a happy time that honestly I didn’t care; it wasn’t until later that I realized how mean and invasive it was.”
On mom guilt…“It’s hard to say that you really can have it all. I think you can to a certain degree, but fully loaded, pedal-all-the-way-down is tough. You’re missing out on something, either on the career or on the family. When I’m really busy with work, I feel extremely guilty.”
If she’ll ever get married again…“I don’t want to say I wouldn’t get married again, but it’s not important to me. I don’t feel I would need to be married to have another child. If I felt strongly enough toward someone or if someone felt strongly about it, I might say okay. But it’s not essential.”
