Hilary Duff thinks having her 10-week-old child Luca Cruz with ex-NHL player Mike Comrie has made their marriage even stronger.
"It's made [our marriage] stronger. Having a baby is a lot of hard work and you really depend on each other for a lot. There is so much love...you can't imagine it until it happens to you and you look at your husband and you're like 'we did this together.' There is so much purpose now, there was before but it is just on a whole other level there is so much joy and excitement every single day. [There's] lots of hard work, [but] its fantastic. [Having a child] has just done so much for our family. Mike and I were married before and that's a great feeling but to really have a child and feel that connection, that unit, it really has been an incredible journey."

Can you believe how quickly time has flown by? It seems just like yesterday that Hilary Duff and Joel Madden were still an item. Now, the Good Charlotte musician is celebrating parenthood with Nicole Richie. Meanwhile, Duff might have a bit of celebrating of her own to do.
Based on appearances Friday night, it looks like rumors about the pop star’s engagement might actually be true. Hilary, who was out with her Canadian hockey player beau, was spotted outside Il Sole with an interesting piece of bling on her ring finger.

All I can say is - thank God she (and Lindsay) both moved on from Aaron Carter. Does anyone even remember why those two even liked him to begin with?
