Hilary Duff was recently interviewed by Parade Magazine and she opened up about how motherhood has been treating her, and how she's managed to transition back to work after giving birth.
When talking about motherhood and how it's changed her life, she explains, "Everything has changed. I’d say I’ve gotten very confident. There’s something that just happens to you when you have a baby, and you look at their little eyes for the first time when you’re holding them.... It was very confidence building.”
She also discusses the difficulty of going back to work after having her son, and she describes it as 'major'. She says, "My first day away from home, I was running to the bathroom and pumping, but I was grateful to have a day where I felt important again outside of my new role. I was grateful to work, but then I always want to get right back home and be with him because I just feel like this is where my place is now. But the first year’s under my belt now, and I did work on Raising Hope and Two and a Half Men. Work makes me happy, and I know I need it in my life, but it’s just going to some time to find exactly what I want to do and how much time I feel I can spend away. It’s all trial and error.”
Duff is guest-starring arc on Two And A Half Men, which is her first high-profile role since returning to acting. She explains that she's a huge fan of the show, that the writing is 'amazing', and that it's great for her to be able to play such an important role in the season finale.
