Hilary Duff Pregnant

Hilary was so happy with the arrival of her son, she fell in love with him right away — but she is no rush to be pregnant again!

Hilary Duff gave birth to her adorable son Luca Cruz Comrie with husband Mike Comrie on March 20 and confesses to Parade the good and bad surprises she wasn’t prepared for after the birth.

“I felt my heart grew the second I met him,” she says. “Everybody always talks about it, about how you don’t know love until you meet your baby, and you really feel that. There are no words. It was a really wonderful surprise. And there is no way to prepare yourself for the sleep deprivation and what comes with it.”

The love of your new baby is to be expected and if you have ever talked to any mom you know about the sleep deprivation, but do women love being pregnant?

“To be totally honest, I had a really easy pregnancy and I did enjoy a lot of it. But a part of me isn’t like those women who love being pregnant. I love my baby and I miss that feeling of being attached to him when he’s kicking, but I was so ready to not be pregnant,” she admits.

She thinks about it and adds, “But then again, my sister [Haylie Duff] and I are very close so I want Luca to have someone close [to his age] — but not too close!”

The act of being pregnant may not be all it’s cracked up to be, especially due to the weight gain and the imperfections. Hilary, 24, was shocked to see the difference in her body when she began to show, but after a month she felt differently. “I just felt really proud that I had a body that could do what it was doing,” she says.

“It is incredible what your body can do. You can appreciate all of your imperfections because you have a beautiful baby who came from you and all that you went through.”

How sweet!
