Haylie Duff Talks Being a Working Mom: ‘I Feel Like I’m Setting a Good Example’

05/04/2016 at 11:00 AM ET

From business owning to singing, acting, food blogging and everything in between, Haylie Duff does it all — including parenting!

On Friday’s episode of Amazon’s Style Code Live, Duff dished on the challenges of juggling work and being mom to daughter Ryan Ava, who will turn a year old on May 11.

“Most of the trips that I take that are the one-day trips … I’m okay to do it because I get a little one-day break and then I’m so happy to get back to [Ryan],” Duff, 31, said.

“[This interview] was hard because I’d come off of starting my new show with the Cooking Channel and I’d been gone from her for two days, and I got to go home for a six-hour period to unpack and re-pack and see her, and then I got on another plane. I didn’t want to leave this time.”

Hilary Duff Jokes Son Luca ‘Just Wants to Have Big Muscles’

01/15/2016 at 02:00 PM ET

For most moms, getting their children to eat anything green is a big endeavor.

But Younger star Hilary Duff says her son, Luca Cruz, 3½, is all about the spinach — and for good reason.

“You know how little a bag of spinach will melt down when you cook it? He can eat the whole thing,” Duff told PEOPLE at a SoulCycle X Target VIP Event on Thursday. “Basically, he just wants to have big muscles.”

The 28-year-old mom adds, “He’s so funny — we’ll be eating, and he’s like, ‘Is this going to give me muscles? This going to give me muscles?’ ”

Hilary Duff on Life as a Single Mom: ‘I Feel Extremely Guilty’ When Work Keeps Me ‘Really Busy’

12/30/2015 at 09:00 AM ET

Hilary Duff is coming clean about being a single mom with a career in Hollywood.

“It’s hard to say that you really can have it all,” the singer and actress, 28, tells Redbook in her February cover story.

“I think you can to a certain degree, but fully loaded, pedal-all-the-way-down is tough. You’re missing out on something, either on the career or on the family.”

The mother to son Luca Cruz, 3½, adds, “When I’m really busy with work, I feel extremely guilty.”

Hilary and Haylie Duff: How We Support Each Other As Moms

08/13/2015 at 07:05 PM ET

When it comes to mommyhood, sisters Hilary and Haylie Duff are grateful they have each other to lean on.

“Somebody [asked me], ‘What is the best advice that Hilary has given you as a mom?’ and it’s like, it hasn’t been advice,” Haylie, who welcomed daughter Ryan Ava with fiancé Matt Rosenberg in May, tells PEOPLE.

“She’s been there to support me,” Haylie says of her younger sister Hilary, who’s mom to 3-year-old son Luca Cruz. “Whether I just want to cry for a minute or I just need her to hold [Ryan] for a second or whatever it is, she’s just there to support me in any way she can. I think that’s probably been the most important thing for me so far.”

Now, the sisters have joined Similac’s Sisterhood of Motherhood campaign, Sisterhood Unite, which gives parents the opportunity to share their stories and support one another.

“Instead of focusing on the judgment that we feel from other mothers, it’s giving a place for moms and dads to sound off on each other and to join in on the conversation,” Haylie, who shares she was judged for her birth plan and daughter’s name, says.

Like her sister, Hilary also felt judged as a mom, which is why the sisters are encouraging other parents to share what they will do to stop the Mommy Wars with #SisterhoodUnite on Facebook.

“I felt judgment when people found out that I had an epidural or that after seven months of breastfeeding, I had to start supplementing with formula because I was going back to work and I wasn’t making enough milk,” Hilary recalls.

Arrgh, Matey: Hilary Duff’s Son Does His Best Pirate Impression

06/29/2015 at 09:00 AM ET

Let it never be said that Hilary Duff‘s son isn’t an optimist who can make the best out of a failing situation.

In a super cute video posted on her Instagram on Sunday, Luca Cruz, 3, does his best to figure out how to wink, at his mom’s encouragement: “You’re doing it!”

(He wasn’t, not really — but isn’t that what parenting is all about?)

After several tries, Luca decides to just turn the experiment into a pirate impression, letting out an “Arr, matey.”

We’re going to go ahead and accept this as his audition for the eventual 37th installment of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise. (Also starring Johnny Depp.)

In an era where celebrity moms seem to be bikini ready minutes after giving birth, Hilary Duff admits she felt the pressure after she welcomed son Luca Cruz in 2012.

“I was the girl who looked at moms who just had babies and was like, ‘How did they do that?’ ” she tells PEOPLE exclusively.

“Everyone was like, ‘Nurse the baby, the weight is going to fall off!’ I feel like the opposite happened to me — and I nursed him exclusively for seven and a half months! It took me two years to get in shape.”

And now, the actress, who is back on the small screen with TV Land’s Younger, is content after coming to terms with her post-baby figure.
