It’s nice to know that at least one teen queen of the early 2000s escaped unscathed. Unlike Lindsay Lohan and Amanda Bynes, former Project Runway guest judge Hilary Duff appears to be reasonably well-adjusted. Her life as a new mommy isn’t always easy, but she says that it’s definitely a fulfilling job!
It’s still a little hard to believe, but the former Lizzie McGuire has already been a mom for over a year! Hilary Duff recently dished to Yahoo! OMG about her experience thus far. She says that her son, Luca, is now thirteen months old and “really has a personality now.” Although Luca is constantly forcing his mom to chase after him, Hilary still feels that she’s “at a really fun stage right now.”
Of course, being a mom is not always as easy as Hilary might make it look in the tabloid photos. She has definitely encountered a few difficulties, including the usual problems related to weight gain and making it through the night. But while there’s a definite learning curve, Hilary feels she’s done a great job thus far. “It’s kind of a heaviness at first, when to admit you just need to get away for a second, that’s one thing I learned that is OK.”
Thus far, Hilary has found that the biggest problem is not so much motherhood itself, but the complications related to being a celebrity mom. Namely, that of constantly being tailed by photographers. Hilary admits that the paparazzi are nowhere near as bad as she suspected, but that she still isn’t looking forward to explaining their presence. “I haven’t had to explain it to my son yet, what’s going on. For the most part they respect me and they respect my space, but it’s tough to always be photographed.”
It’s great to see that Hilary Duff is happy and healthy! We wish all the best for this cheerful young mom!
