Hilary Duff fans were shocked earlier this year when the young star announced her split from husband, Mike Comrie. The couple welcomed their first child together only a year before, and it seemed as if they had every reason to celebrate rather than split. The couple has always been very good about keeping their relationship private, not discussing their personal lives with reporters, and very little has changed about that.
However, in a recent interview, Duff commented on her marital issues. What she has to say about her relationship with her husband and their separation is honest, and it’s refreshing. In Hollywood, most stars make the announcement that they’re ending their marriage and that they remain the absolute “best of friends,” and that things are going very well. Duff, on the other hand, admits that while they love each other very much, her separation has not been easy.
“I’m separated from my husband right now, which has been a very difficult thing to go through, but we have a lot of love for each other and we have this beautiful baby,” she says of her marriage and the couple’s 2-year-old son. While her separation has been difficult on her, she’s been keeping herself busy. Not only is she looking forward to the marriage of her sister, she’s also recording her first album in more than 7 years as well as spending as much time as possible with her little boy.
Most of the music that will be on her new album was written several years ago, when she was pregnant with her son, in fact. She admits that there is going to be a song about her marriage and her separation on the album, which insinuates that it’s going to be a very different sound than what Duff fans are accustomed to hearing from the former Disney star.
