Duff ‘strong and fierce’

Hilary Duff says motherhood has instilled a fierce form of confidence in her.

The singer-and-actress shares two-year-old son Luca with her estranged husband, Mike Comrie.

Since becoming a mother Hilary has taken unimaginable risks in both her personal and professional affairs, and she feels stronger than ever.

“One of the coolest things about being a mum is this newfound confidence in every aspect of my life,” she explained to People magazine.

“I was a little uncomfortable with [my body] in the beginning because it goes through a lot of changes, but now I’m more grateful than ever for what it can do for me.

“I feel strong as hell and fierce! It took me a while to totally get back in shape, but I’m proud of my body.”

The 26-year-old star admits she’s a little concerned about her toddler’s interests at the moment.

She believes Luca is far too advanced for his age when it comes to the topic of girlfriends.

“[He’s] really into girls,” Hilary laughed. “It’s kind of scary. He likes girls in dresses. [Luca’s growing up] too fast, which scares me. He thinks Elsa from Frozen is his girlfriend. I’m like, ‘Great, your first love’s an ice queen.’”

In January it was announced Hilary and her hockey player spouse Mike, 33, had decided to split after four years of marriage.

But the songstress reunites with Mike frequently and they often attend Luca’s sporting events together.

“I don’t know if he’s so musically inclined. He’s a little more like his dad like that,” Hilary said of her son.

“He plays soccer. Can you believe I’m a soccer mum?!”
