Hilary Erhard Duff (born September 28, 1987) is an American actress and singer. Duff began her acting career at a young age, and quickly became labeled a teen idol as the starring titular character in the television series Lizzie McGuire (2001–04). The series proved to be a hit, leading to a film adaptation of the series to be released. Duff began working on numerous projects with the Disney channel, including the film Cadet Kelly (2002).
She later began work on an album, releasing the Christmas themed Santa Claus Lane (2002) through Walt Disney Records. Upon signing with Hollywood Records, Duff began working on her second studio album, Metamorphosis (2003). The album achieved critical and commercial success, topping the Billboard 200 and selling over three million copies in the United States alone. The album also found success in both Canada and Japan. Duff’s success in both acting and music led to her becoming a household name, with merchandise such as dolls, clothing, and fragrances being released.
Duff began to expand her career into theatrical films, with leading roles in projects such as Agent Cody Banks (2003), Cheaper by the Dozen (2003), A Cinderella Story (2004), and Cheaper by the Dozen 2 (2005). She continued to have success in music, with her albums Hilary Duff (2004) and Most Wanted (2005) achieving Platinum status in the United States. Following the release of her fourth studio album, Dignity (2007), Duff released a greatest hits album and parted ways with Hollywood Records.
During this time, she began appearing in independent films such as War, Inc. (2008), According to Greta (2009), and Bloodworth (2010). She later released the novel Elixir (2010), which became a New York Times best seller. The book was followed by the sequels Devoted (2011) and True (2013). She currently stars in the comedy-drama series Younger as Kelsey Peters. She returned to music in 2014, and signed with RCA Records for her fifth studio album Breathe In. Breathe Out. (2015).

Duff has received much media attention since the beginning of her career, most notably for her romantic relationships, friendships and her public image. Her romances with Aaron Carter and Joel Madden were often reported in the media. In 2010 she married former professional hockey player Mike Comrie with whom she shares a son. The two of them finalized their divorce 6 years later. She has been described by later Disney actresses as an inspiration, with artists such as Miley Cyrus and Selena Gomez claiming they looked up to Duff and her career. Duff has sold an estimated 15 million records since her debut in 2002.
The star receives exciting news on her one-year anniversary to hockey player Mike Comrie.
Hilary Duff’s first wedding anniversary is extra sweet: she and Mike Comrie announced they are expecting a baby!
“This weekend, Mike and I are celebrating our one year anniversary! In memory of the special day, we decided to post some of our favorite pictures from our wedding!” she wrote on her official website Sunday.
“I can’t believe it has already been a year. Time really flies when you’re having fun! We also want to share the exciting news that baby makes three! We are extremely happy and ready to start this new chapter of our lives. Thanks to everyone for the continued love and support throughout the years!”
Hilary Duff, 23, wed pro hockey player Comrie, 30, on August 14, 2010 in an intimate sunset ceremony at a $29 million estate near the San Ysidro Ranch in Montecito, Calif.
“We both love kids and we’re really excited,” Duff told Us Weekly Wednesday at the Kendra Scott jewelry event in L.A., just days before sharing her pregnancy news with the world. “It was a big deal for us because we had a year to be married.”
The 22-year-old actress Hilary Duff wed her hockey player beau, Mike Comrie, in an intimate sunset ceremony at a $29 million estate near the San Ysidro Ranch in Montecito, Calif. on Saturday.
Approximately 100 of the couple’s closest family members and friends enjoyed poolside cocktails before the ceremony began at sundown. Clad in a strapless Vera Wang gown with her hair in a bun, Duff made her way down the aisle — lined with candles and rose petals — with her mother, Susan, by her side. Duff’s older sister, Haylie, served as maid of honor.
“It was one of the most beautiful weddings I’ve ever seen,” a witness told Us of the pair’s 20-minute ceremony. “Absolutely stunning. They thought of every last detail and it was an incredible sight.”
Together for more than two years, Duff and Comrie, 29, got engaged during a Hawaiian vacation in February.
After Comrie got down on one knee and presented his girlfriend with a 14-carat, radiant-cut sparkler in Maui, Duff told Us she went full tilt into wedding planning mode.
“[I] came home to a big stack of magazines from my family,” said Duff, who had “tear sheets all over my house” in her quest to find the perfect gown. “It’s very exciting!”
Though the pair often endure a long-distance relationship, Duff says she and her new husband have a surprisingly “natural” relationship.
“We both have busy jobs, and we’re both very focused people, so that helps,” the actress tells Us. “Since we are apart so much, it’s not like one person is at home waiting for the other.”
What makes Comrie her perfect match? “He’s a great guy,” Duff gushes. “I’ve never met anyone who could say a bad word about him. He’s generous, caring, funny. We just laugh our heads off, which I need in my life … He’s unique. I wouldn’t want to be with someone who wasn’t unique.”
