Hilary Duff: We Definitely Want to Have More Kids

Hilary Duff Wants More Kids Dan Steinberg/Invision/AP

Hilary Duff has her hands full with her active 16-month-old son, Luca Cruz. “I’m chasing a baby around all the time — it’s pretty busy,” she admits.

The 25-year-old, who recently revealed plans to head back into the recording studio, admits that she loves spending time at home with her blond-haired boy.

“He talks a lot,” she revealed in an interview with E! News. “He’s saying things like ‘dog,’ ‘cat,’ ‘mom,’ ‘cheese’ — like one-word wonders.”

But as is the case with most kids when they’re learning to talk, Duff doesn’t always understand everything her son with husband Mike Comrie says.

“He looks at me like, ‘Uh, didn’t you get that?’ And I’m like, ‘Uh, Luc, I don’t speak that yet.’ I think he’s confused as to who’s learning the language here. He’s trying to teach me his.”

Duff, who’s finishing up work on the film Flock of Dudes, reveals she’d like to give Luca a little brother or sister.

“I think we definitely want to have more kids,” she admits. “Maybe I’m a two-kid, three-kid kind of gal.”

Why does everyone use the word “like”?

Tara on

Everybody does it, it’s a replacement for “but”, “um” when one is thinking on the spot while speaking its a comfort word instead of silence. Obviously, giving a speech, writing, or singing one would not use this.

I like how she put that she wants more kids. Very classy and not downgrading anyone else in any way. She’s definately a classy young lady. Little Luca is a doll.

She is so precious! Love her 🙂

Stop breeding! The world does not need more people.

Really? Kids make life worth living. You don’t get to decide when people can and can’t have kids. I’m pregnant with our first, and guess what? We want 1 or 2 more.

Everyone has a right to how many kids they want to have. So shut up!

Wow, four likes! That is how 12 year olds talk!

She said less than six months ago (pretty sure People still has the article in their archives) she was one and done. Wonder what changed her mind?

Pam on

They probably decided that they want him to have a sibling to grow up with. Being an only child can be lonely.

Saw her in an interview a few months back, and I was dismayed at her vocabulary-or lack of. She sounded so lost with her words and very immature.

16 + months of doing nothing but totting a baby around while simultaneously holding the drink of the day. Wow – let’s hear another update about Ms. Duff. Or not.

Will she ever actually work again? Snore. She doesn’t have to. Obviously. Insert drink of the day here.

We don’t need more people but we do need good leaders and I believe these children are the leaders of the future .

Wow, there are some nasty, bitter people commenting on this site. I’m sad for those of you who feel you must degrade others to make you feel better about yourself.

I really like her and think she is a gorgeous young mama. Good for you Hillary thst you dont want your son to be an only. I also love being a mom so much that I didn’t want just one child.

taylor on

God Bless you all!

Loved her from her Disney days. Glad she didn’t go the route of the other Disney star. Glad she has settled into a nice family life with her boys.

You think one child parents just ‘run around’ after the child all day amd have time to drink etc… and is she ever going back to work. You think looking afyer a child and household isnt work? You think that maybe she sees looking after her child as the best job in the world, why have kids if your just going to pay someone to raise them for them for you? There are mums out there that HAVE to work and miss their kids first steps/words etc… your being super insensitive and rude!

Love her, she seems very grounded, and seems to have her head on straight. That’s great if she wants more kids- looks like she can care for her son and is a good more- more power to them- everyone does what’s best for them.

We were a one and done family- I like having a life too, my entire life is not my daughter- yes she’s a big part of it, but I didn’t lose who I was just because I had a child.

My fiancé and I want to have 4 or 5 kids, does that mean were going to get pulled over for a violation from the children police? Geez guys, you should congratulate her for having more kids, if you were so bitter or unhappy why did you read the article in the first place?

micky on

seriously anonymous you need to just shut up if you have nothing nice to add about the article you should just keep your opinions to yourself. You sound Jealous and Bitter

Anonymous- (the one who mentioned her talking about being “one and done” in another interview) She said that’s how she was feeling at the time. She also admitted that she and Mike might have more “when Luca is 2 or 3”. 🙂
