As she looks toward the future, Hilary Duff remains very aware of the unusual opportunities that allowed her to achieve a great amount of success at a young age, saying,
"I wonder what life would have been like to have a different life. I sometimes wish I wasn't always watched or didn't have to worry about been seen somewhere. But I've experienced things other girls haven't. I've traveled, I'm financially independent, I own a beautiful home and I'm happy with my job. I don't have to struggle with the questions a lot of other women do."
But the famed actress/singer also looks forward to challenges and opportunities for growth, both in her career and personal life. "I want to grow as a person, and I want to make mistakes," she has stated. "I'm human, too. So I think I've gotten to a place where I'm really being myself."
On August 14, 2010, Duff married her longtime boyfriend, Mike Comrie, a professional hockey player for the Pittsburgh Penguins of the National Hockey League. On March 20, 2012, Duff gave birth to the couple's first child, son Luca Cruz Comrie. In a 2013 interview with the Today show, Duff stated that she was "obsessed" with being a mom. "It's very humbling. It's all about him ... It's his world. We're just living in it," she said. "I feel like my heart just swelled. I didn't know I could love something so much. And that keeps getting more intense as he grows older."
