In 2010, after a few years of dating, Hilary Duff tied the knot with Mike Comrie, a former professional ice hockey player from Canada. Two years later, the pair welcomed their first child, Luca Cruz. However, by 2016, Duff and Comrie were divorced.
According to Duff, several factors led to the split, mainly age and simply growing apart with time. The actress, who was 22 on her wedding day, told Cosmopolitan, “I’d been working since the age of 11 or 12, so making that choice at a young age seemed right for me. Maybe it wasn’t, but we spent the majority of our time together really happy. It wasn’t working well enough to stay together, but there was still a lot of love involved. It was just a slow set-in of us not being the match that we used to be.”
She makes sure that Luca is able to freely speak with her about his dad. In fact, Duff shared with Grazia that she regularly tells Luca about the good times she and Comrie had. “It is a very sweet thing,” she said. “As adults, we forget how nice it was to hear our parents’ stories when we were children.”
