Hilary Duff and Mike Comrie focused all their attention into co-parenting their son, Luca, together during their marriage, and lost track of their romantic relationship, HollywoodLife.com learned EXCLUSIVELY. The 1-year-old remains their top priority after their shocking separation, but they’re learning to spend some time on themselves too.
Hilary Duff and Mike Comrie‘s adorable son Luca, 1, remains their top priority — even after they broke our hearts when they announced they split on Jan. 10. Being at home together and putting their constant focus on parenting and not their relationship or careers is actually what caused the pair to feel more like friends to one another than romantic partners, HollywoodLife.com learned EXCLUSIVELY.
Hilary Duff Son Luca Top Priority After ‘Amicable Separation’ From Mike Comrie
Hilary and Mike spent so much time together at home being parents that they felt they weren’t able to keep up their romantic relationship.
“Hilary really took time off from her career to be a Mom and her focus was all on that while Mike played hockey,” a source told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “Sure, she did a few things here and there, but hasn’t really been in the limelight and missed it. Then to add to that, when Mike retired earlier then he expected because of injuries, the focus was the two of them and their son rather than their relationship and lifestyles.”
“They were around each other all the time which made things more of a friendly situation than a romantic one,” the source explained. “In their relationship when it worked it was when they were apart, they definitely lived the absence makes the heart grow fonder. But surprisingly they are actually still friends.”
