    @ladyb: Totally agree. I think all women do have that dream of marriage and babies but some pick the wrong time. Maybe their career isn’t well or they’re tired of the club scene and use that as an excuse to get married, have babies. I know of a friend who met her man, became engaged, and pregnant – all within a year and a half. All at 25. She was convinced it was what she wanted and when it all happened, she didn’t get the happiness she expected. She saw her husband less bc of work, they didn’t go on dates anymore, he wasn’t more romantic…babies were just hard work…and living at home still was stressing her out. She would resent family members who had that freedom or could go out whenever they wanted. Her husband still likes to party here and there and drink with the guys. It can get overwhelming.

    I’m not here to preach. I do agree that the 20′s are meant to find yourselves and set up a foundation for life. Be selfish at this time bc once you’re married with babies, there’s no room for that anymore. The ones who married/had kids in their mid 20′s, find a way to somehow relive it when given the chance. The ones that wait til 30 are more than happy to stay home and be “boring” all the time :)

  • Real

    These separation statements sound all alike. Same contents, same wording.
    It’s a pity that after these brillant communication efforts most celebs start kicking each other’s asses on the press.

  • Looselipz

    Wow, Hilary sure out on a happy face giving us no real inclination her marriage was failing.
    I think people are too quick to tie the knot and equally too quick to break it.
    But, without being in their shoes, I can’t really judge the situation..As long as they can remain civil for the sake of the small child, that’s all that counts now..

  • GAH!

    called it. They have been jobless forever and living off Mikes family. He is perfectly healthy, and can have a hockey career. He is not supporting his family the way he should be.

  • Nope

    @Arrow 12: He’s MUCH wealthier than her…duh. His family is filthy rich.

  • Jess

    Damn shame. Another child going to bed every night and waking up every morning wondering where Daddy is. Breaks my heart. Poor Luca.

  • Holly HO HO

    This probably has something to do with her returning to music studio. In a past Just Jared article, Duff said this:=> “I’m still in the studio working with all of the people that I want to working with, ‘without a label’. I’m playing my music for ‘the few labels’ that I’m talking to. They’re excited about it, but I’m just trying to play my cards right. I’m still writing and I’m still recording, and I’m still taking songs that I love.”

  • Rose

    I can’t remember did they announce her prengnancy before or long after they were married? Because if they announced her pregnancy before then they probably got married for the sake of the baby. Not surprised the marriage didn’t last.

  • Elizabeth

    They think ‘marriage’ is hard? Wait till they have to deal with explaining to Luca why Daddy isn’t living with us anymore, splitting up time/holidays, school functions, extended family gatherings, etc. They’re gonna wish they stayed married!

  • sally

    I did see this coming but a few years later not now! She said she wanted a girl a few weeks ago and she’s going to release new music. Wtf? I suppose she needs a job now.

  • Diane

    Everything was planned and programmed. The split up I mean. People shouldnt play with love. It should come as something natural and unexpected. I think they have never really loved each other. Too bad.
    Maybe she should turn lesbian because she must be unbearable in private.

  • Shawna

    Completely ridiculous! Nobody actually tries in marriage anymore. Hollywood movies have ruined marriage. Everyone expects to always FEEL in love, to always have passion and romance and they don’t realize that love is a choice, it is an action, not just a feeling. And age is not an excuse. I married my husband just after my 20th birthday and this June we’ll have been married for 15 years. There have been many hard times, lots of times we could have quit. But 15 years and 3 kids later we are happier than ever. You have to get through the hard times to get to the good stuff. Unfortunately most people never get there because they call it quits.

  • bellabooze

    @Malibu: yep! can claim babies are miracles ‘n shit, but as soon as you realize you’re gonna be connected forever to someone you don’t wanna have sex w/ anymore… ANYTHING that connects you to them is a pain in the a$s.

  • Yassine

    OMG I can’t believe this they were such a great couple and Hilary is a very nice person !!! :/

  • Yassine

    @Rose: stop making your stupid suppositions about people !!
    She got pregnant a more than a year after her marriage !!!

  • ladyb

    @Ava: You hit the nail in the head. Marriage is not as glamorous as one think. It is for the first few years but after that reality sets in. Yes, late 20s and the 30s are the best time to settle down. And if you have a lot of money and are a celebrity, enjoy it; travel the world with your girlfriends, you don’t have to be home at a certain time, you don’t have to answer to a husband. With that said, I wish both of them the best of luck. Hope Hilary can jumpstart her movie career cause she does well in family movies.

  • Chhay Sun Be

    If hilary and Mike can’t make it, it shows that noone in Hollywood can make it last

  • Carol

    @Rose: I’ve just looked it up on the internet. They got married in August 2010 and the following year they announced she was pregnant (in August 2011). They were married not 3 years but 2 years and 5 months. Jared should do his research too because the information is wrong. Thank you Rose.

  • Not Surprised

    Honestly, I didn’t think it would last. 23 is still relatively young to get married these days. Most 23 year olds have just finished college and spend the rest of their 20′s being carefree and enjoying themselves.


    People give up on their marriages so soon. People now a days don’t respect the sanctity of marriage. Divorce should go back to being illegal, that way marriage can be saved for those who are really committed in making it work. Marriage has turned into a joke, especially for rich people who can just pay some lawyer and get it over it.
    They suck

  • Madison

    Very surprised by this. They always seemed so happy together. This came out of left field. They were a sweet couple and Hilary is such a lovely girl. Luca is soo cute. At least his parents will both continue to be there for him.

  • TOM

    They weren’t looking for a child when she got pregnant. That baby wasn’t (YET) desired. Hilary herself had said a couple of months before her pregnancy that she wanted two have kids two years from thereon to focus on her music and acting career, and suddenly the got knocked up weeks after her statements.

  • Rilo

    @Liz: A “broken home”? My parents divorced when I was very young. My mother remarried and now I am so grateful to have an extra family to love and an extra brother who is my best friend. There was never any “hating and bashing” between my parents. Though it is very sad, it does not have to be as negative and world-ending as you make it seem. Hoping for the best for them.

  • Tara

    @Liz: Yes, because women are the only ones involved in the whole having kids things. *sigh*

  • Neil


    It is only sad if they turn into bad parents. There is little stigma attached to divorced parents nowadays so the whole thing rests solely on whether or not the two people continue to be a positive presence in their child’s life.

    It’s the man who messes up. Men are so different from women. If Hilary Duff was recently talking about another baby, I bet she did not see this coming either. Young women marry and they so badly want to “bond” and set up a “nest,” but men are often not on the same page. A lot of men who marry the woman of their dreams DO NOT want to be parents so soon. They still want to enjoy their wives alone. They still want a lot of sex. They still want to have fun together. They still want to be Number 1. Before the baby arrives, they are Number 1 and it is very very common for men to be jealous of their very own kids. I’m tellin ya the truth and I have seen it again and again. Yea, you can give birth right away and then wait 20 years for the golden years with you hubby, but when the golden years come, it’s not the same because you are both older then. Your body is older. You may both be having health problems, like high-blood pressure, hot flashes, obesity, impotence, etc. And also, 20-30 years later, you are most likely no longer madly “in love” with your spouse — more like it, you’ve drifted apart and the kids are mostly what you have in common. So, you should take advantage of your youth. Like someone else said, “Why rush?” Don’t rush for marriage and don’t rush for kids when you are too young — unless you are certain it’s what you want and you are certain it’s what your mate wants. If you marry young, you have years to still push out at least 2 kids. And please don’t be tempted to have kids to force anyone to stay with you. Suck up a failed relationship and move on.

    @Neil: The problem women have is when they have a kid to try to make a man stay with them, and not necessarily because they’re desiring to be an excellent mom. When the marriage ends, these self-centered types of mothers get mad and resentful because they have to raise the child, but their ex gets to go on living footloose and fancy free, with visitation. If a woman really really wants to be a mother and loves her kids, her ex is not going to affect her like that. She will be strong and determined to do whatever is necessary to give her children a happy life. Too often the resentful moms “flake out” and everything is about them. They get tied up into their own pain and resentment and they neglect their children’s emotional needs. They let the wrong men into their lives, etc. Lots of kids have ended up being abused and molested because Dad isn’t around enough and Mom is focused on herself. Predators come close, see the situation and take advantage of it.

  • Eric

    @9 out of 10 times:

    you talk and analyze life but do you have one?

    you wrote a book in the comments section.

  • Krlovestoots

    Very very surprised by this spilt! Marriages just dont last anymore the
    ” the normal marriage ” lasts 3-5 years now. Unfortunetly …

  • L

    So sad for the child. All the best to all of them.


    Damn. This actually makes me sad.

  • Lucy

    I’ve been a fan of Hilary for a very long time. It makes me so sad :( Never saw it coming

  • ness

    No surprise.

  • Marta

    @Not Surprised: True, but think about it, past generations were getting married at 17, 18, 20….. and they made it work. I think Hollywood marriages break up because the demands of the job are competitive and tough. Also when a celeb gets married, it has an effect on the duration and location of the job, especially if there are children involved. Comrie is no longer traveling around with his hockey buddies and he probably didn’t think he’d become a stay at home Dad, and Hillary has been heading back to the recording studio.

  • Lashay Villagrana

    I can not expect for the Split of this Couple after the long 3 year relationship.whenever they are love each other .I think that Misunderstanding is the main reason for split.

  • Sarul

    So sad 4 Hil, be strong and get back to music ASAP!

    @Eric: Lol! Writing long posts is a piece of cake for me and you better believe it! Interesting….You complain about the length of my posts, but what do you think about the “content” of my words, dearie? No one makes you read stuff that is too long for you———-;-)

  • marie

    i’m shocked, that’s not possible ._.

  • amanda

    OMG! they made such a cute couple. really didn’t see that one coming!

  • Fannie

    What a pity

  • Katrina

    Wow I’m a little shocked about this. I wasn’t expecting this to happen. Well I hope it all works out the way they want and I’m glad they have decided to remain friends for their baby.

  • Miriam

    What the f—!!! Poor little boy!

  • Luso

    WOOW I really didn’t see this one coming =X so sad! They have such dignity and class.

  • Mike

    Not a surprise! Marriages seldom last these days especially true of celeb marriages!
    There are too many temptations when celebs spend time apart because of work and projects and the people they meet and work with!
    As quickly as they get married along comes a divorce!
    There is no let’s work this out or let’s get through this together!
    It’s most always let’s get separated which with will lead to divorce!

  • ladyb

    I also think Mike might have want to go back to Canada and maybe get involve in the family`s business since nothing much is happening for him in the US ever since his hockey days became over. Hilary will definitely want to stay in LA to have her career back. I can see how the two can split over this. But things like this should be discussed before tying the knot. Engaged couples have to discuss a lot of `what if`situation before getting married.

  • and we say

    It’s going to be difficult for Hilary Duff to “get her career back.” She’s like a different person. She’d probably need to re-invent herself. You know, become a “new Hilary Duff,” but I still think her glory days are pretty much behind her. She’s had a baby. Her “looks” have changed a lot. She doesn’t have the same appeal. Plus, as a singer, she’s not like Christina Aguilera or someone with a great voice that is more marketable.

  • amy

    good luck Hilary !

  • Bt

    that’s so sad Hilary is such a nice person :(

  • Max

    Ouch I really did’t see this coming !
