After a roller-coaster year, actress and singer Hilary Duff is happier than ever. Subscribe now for an inside look at what her life is like now and to learn all about her new favorite costar, only in PEOPLE!

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.

After a roller-coaster year, actress and singer Hilary Duff is happier than ever. Subscribe now for an inside look at what her life is like now and to learn all about her new favorite costar, only in PEOPLE.

Throughout the ups and downs of the past year, Hilary Duff never lost sight of what is most important: her 3-year-old son Luca Cruz.

The actress, who filed for divorce from Mike Comrie in January, says she’s “really proud” of how the former couple handled their split.

“We are a unit and we’re going to be a unit for the rest of our lives,” Duff, who co-parents with Comrie, 34, tells PEOPLE exclusively.

“We realized [as a couple] we weren’t where we used to be. But I feel so lucky this happened when Luca was young because this is his normal now.”

Hilary Duff has already found a sous chef in her 3-year-old.

The busy mom chatted Tuesday at the New York City premiere of her new series Younger about the delicious mother-son activity she’s discovered with her son Luca Cruz — cooking!

“Lately I’ve been trying to get him into cooking because I love to cook,” Duff, 27, tells PEOPLE.

But the Disney Channel alum isn’t leaving her toddler alone to man the kitchen. She mostly lets Luca mess around with the pots and pans while she takes on the hard labor.

“I try to cook things that involve lots of different bowls where he can be dipping stuff in,” the singer and actress explains. “It’s nice for him to touch the food and work with it and then eat it.”

And the hobby can be a nice break when Duff needs to stop and breathe.

“That has been my new favorite activity because it’s somewhat mellow and he’s actually getting into it,” she says of their culinary pastime. “He’s so into trains and cars and hide-and-go-seek and tag and chasing and racing — I never sit down!”

Newly blue-haired Hilary Duff celebrated her son Luca‘s third birthday on Friday by posting a sweet photo album on Instagram.

“3 years buddy! 3 beautiful years! You make every minute worth while! We cherish all your firsts and all that is to come,” she wrote. “Happy 3rd birthday my love #timesflying #whatayear.”

The 27-year-old included her soon-to-be ex-husband Mike Comrie in the Flipagram pics, which show Luca enjoying time in the sun and snow with both his mom and dad.

Duff and Comrie, 34, announced their separation after five years of marriage in January 2014, and the actress and singer reportedly filed for divorce in February 2015, shortly after rumors swirled about the former NHL player having a wild night out with friends in Beverly Hills, California.

For Hilary Duff, it’s all about him: her 2½-year-old son Luca Cruz.

But while the “All About You” singer is back to shining in the spotlight with her new single, Duff admits her toddler is showing signs he’ll have a future on the field.

“I don’t know if he’s so musically inclined. He’s a little more like his dad like that,” Duff, 26, told PEOPLE in New York Monday, when Trident and Oral Health America celebrated Smiles Across America‘s 10-year anniversary.

She adds of her son with Mike Comrie, “He plays soccer. Can you believe I’m a soccer mom?!”

Hilary Duff and Son Hang at The Counter

05/02/2014 at 02:00 PM ET

With National Burger Month (yes, that’s a thing) on our mind, we couldn’t help but notice the sweet photo Hilary Duff posted on April 16 of son Luca, 2, enjoying a meal at The Counter‘s Century City, Calif. location.

The celebrity hotspot — fellow star moms Nicole Richie and Tori Spelling are also fans — boasts the most impressive burger menu we’ve seen thus far. And the catchy names don’t hurt either (Old School, Un-Brie-lievable, anyone?). You can even have your burger in a bowl. Hard to imagine, but after reading the ingredients, it sounds absolutely yummy.

Not a meat eater? There are several green options, including the quinoa-based Hippie Salad, that will surely whet your appetite. Our mouths are watering just reading everything they have to offer. No, really.
