Hilary Duff Reflects on Becoming a Young Mom at Age 24

Hilary Duff is speaking out about what it was like to become a mom at the age of 24 to her son Luca, 7, with her ex Mike Comrie.

“It was a little isolating in the beginning because I didn’t have any friends that had babies yet,” the 31-year-old actress and singer said on The Motherly Podcast. “But I had been working for such a long time that it felt like a natural step for me and I always knew I wanted to be a mom and I always knew that was going to be my number one priority in life. So, I felt ready on some fronts and a little scared on others, but really I only got scared once I was pregnant, you know, thinking like, ‘Oh this is actually really happening. What if this? What if that?’”

She also spoke about what happened after Luca was born, saying, “I did feel like after I had him, I lost a big chunk of my identity for like maybe the first year and a half, but I don’t think that was a negative thing.”

Hilary continued, “At times, I was sad about it, but you know it’s full on. I don’t remember setting him down for the first three months of life. I was obsessively googling things and I just took it really seriously that I didn’t realize how all encompassing it would be. I knew it was the most important, biggest job in the world but you know, it looks very different once you’re just in the household with the baby by yourself all the time. It was shocking and it was also the happiest, most beautiful experience, so those two things butting up against each other is quite a strange mix sometimes.”
