Hilary Duff is making the most of her life as a divorced mom.
The Younger star covers Redbook and talks about her current reality, which consists of co-parenting son Luca with ex-husband Mike Comrie.
Even though she’s pretty used to it now, Hil readily admits that divorce is no fun at all, saying:
“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 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!”
Ha! That’s unfortunate, but it’s not surprising!
The former Disney actress also talks about the time she wanted a second baby:
“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, ├óΓé¼╦£Do you know what’s happening right now? I’m not having another.’ You get engaged: ‘When’s the wedding?’ You get married: ├óΓé¼╦£When’s the baby?’ You have a baby: ├óΓé¼╦£When’s the next one?’ ├óΓé¼┬ª I’m cherishing the now. Besides, watch: I’ll probably get some evil spawn of Hilary the next time around.”
An evil spawn of Hilary??? Impossible!
Finally, Hilary mentions that she’s taking things easier than ever before:
“As I get older, I feel more comfortable ‘leaning out.’ I don’t need to cram every day full, because I can and because I’m capable. I have worked my whole life… 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 ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ besides Luca’s. I’m basically his chauffeur!”
That’s good! We could all do more slowing down in our lives.
