Hilary Duff and Mike Comrie, along with their son, Luca Cruz, were spotted at Beverly Hills restaurant Caulfield’s looking pretty couple-y. Could they be headed toward a reconciliation?
Hilary Duff and Mike Comrie announced their separation in Jan. 2014, nearly four years after tying the knot. However, they’ve made it quite clear that they’re keenly interested in being excellent co-parents to their son, Luca Cruz — so much so that the lines seem to be getting blurry! An eyewitness exclusive to HollywoodLife.com spotted the happy family at Caulfield’s, a restaurant in Beverly Hills, showing a lot of PDA. Could a reconciliation be on the horizon?
Hilary Duff & Mike Comrie’s Date: Will They Reconcile?
Hilary and Mike “both hung out and ate in the corner in a high top booth that often would make you hidden but they didn’t in any way try to hide while they were there,” our eyewitness source revealed. “Hilary was looking incredible and was very affectionate to Luca the whole time. Luca was hugging her constantly and they were playing.” So cute! Hilary honestly seems like the best ever celeb mom.
“The one good thing was that Luca didn’t make a scene or cry,” our source added. “He was genuinely in a good mood, just being a kid and playing around the table. She never had to raise her voice or anything like that.
“At the same time she was laughing and smiling with Mike across from her while they ate. … It was very loving and very playful; it wasn’t weird in any way and it wasn’t done just because there kid was there. Everything seemed extremely natural.”
Hilary Duff On Mike Comrie: ‘We Have So Much Respect For Each Other’
However, Hilary has revealed that she knows people are a bit confused by her relationship with Mike. At the iHeartRadio Awards on May 1, Hilary revealed to Giuliana Rancic on E! News that “I think it was hard for people to … We’re constantly seen together and everyone’s like, ‘What are they doing? Are they back together or are they not?'” You’re not wrong, Hilary.
“We’re really good friends and we have so much respect for each other, and, obviously, Luca is our No. 1 priority,” she continued. “I think we got to a point where we were like, ‘We really need to honor happiness, and so, whatever that is and however we need to sort that out or work that out, we’re doing that. You know, we love each other so much and we really love spending time together.
“So, when you see us out it’s not just for Luca — it’s because we make plans and we hang out. We don’t know what our future looks like right now, but we’re both doing really good and just figuring out, you know, what makes us happy.” Hmm, OK, Hilary, if you say so — but we see you! One month after that interview and you were looking pretty couple-y with Mike, but we suppose that we’ll just have to see.
What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Will Hilary and Mike get back together or are they just co-parents to their son Luca? Let us know!
