Is it just me or does she look like Hilary Duff? I have always seen it, but this picture especially resembles her.

I had to look on youtube to remember who she was. How could I forget tough girl Gia who Stephanie Tanner eventually makes cry.

What 90s movies was she in?

I know both your parents (as I’m a podiatrist like your dad) and I’m so happy to see

that you’re married now and expecting a child of your own. How wonderful!!!

Please send regards to them for me. You’re VERY talented to do so well in all those

varied roles that you’ve had. Good luck to you in all your future endeavors.
