Just because she’s pregnant with her first child doesn’t mean that Haylie Duff has been taking it easy when it comes to her exercise routine.

“It feels good to be active a little bit every day,” Duff, 29, told PEOPLE at the Reebok FitHub Studio City Grand Opening. “I think it helps your body feel looser. Your body doesn’t feel like your own for a while, so it’s nice to get it moving every day.”

While the Real Girls Kitchen host says she was more cautious about the types of exercises she did in the beginning of her pregnancy, she’s now back to a regular routine.

“I’m doing a lot of yoga, I’m doing a lot of Pilates, I’m going on walks, I’m spinning,” she says. “You get this boost of energy back after a while, so I think that’s contributing to my working out a little bit more.”

She jokes: “At first I was taking more naps than anything!”

Duff — who said she’s putting her wedding to fiancé Matt Rosenberg on hold until after their daughter is born — has also been mindful of her diet.

“I don’t know if it’s because I have somebody else in mind, but I’ve been wanting to eat healthy food,” she says. “I’ve been craving oranges like crazy! I have a big bowl of them in our kitchen. There’s definitely the occasional craving food in there, but, for the most part, I’m keeping it healthy and simple.”

And while Duff hasn’t started experimenting with making baby foods, the avid chef is looking forward to doing that down the line.

“Your baby is milk-dependent for the first however many months so I haven’t yet, but it’s definitely on my mind and I’m excited to venture down into that!” she shares.

Im sorry to be rude but Haylie has always been completely irrelevant and falling pregnant and having a B grade celeb as a sister does not all of a sudden make you relevant and interesting. Why are you writing stories about a nobody? This is people magazine not in-touch

Ashley, shut up Bitch. She’s more relevant than you.

@ Ashley — totally. I was going to say “D-list celebrity” but otherwise you took the words right out of my mouth. People loves to all of a sudden give them coverage, I guess they know their readers.

Zeze on

@ Ashley, as I read this article I was asking myself what she is known for other that a bit parr in Napolean Dynamite and being Hillary Duff’s sister.

Name on

I don’t know that girl. I just know her as Hilary Duff’s sister. The thing that I don’t get is why writing about a celebrity pregnancy while out there, so many women are pregnant and have trouble to balance with working full time, earning money and taking public commute and trying to meet the ends with a small paycheck.

People Magazine is really getting annoying by making headlines with celebrities who got time to do yoga class and going for shopping and dining out, while «regular and normal» people don’t even have time to breathe.

This is getting so ridiculous.

Haylie has a cookbook and a cooking show. And her biggest acting thing was being on 7th Heaven. She pregnant as 2 other 7th Heaven stars. Jessica Biel and Beverley Mitchell. Beverley isn’t that big of a star anymore. And Haylie is doing TV movies and Christmas movies too.
