Hilary Duff Opens Up About Motherhood

Hilary Duff is opening up about her new life as a mother in the new issue of Parade Magazine. The celebrity mom and actress tells the mag how she is trying to get her pre-pregnancy body back, talks about her son Luca, and of course, her plans for baby number two.

Here are some snippets:

On pressure to get back into shape
“I don’t have a project waiting on me that I have to bust my butt to get into shape for so it’s more about how I feel. I like working out since it makes me feel more clear-headed and positive. I did pilates and yoga during my pregnancy but I really missed getting my butt kicked. But then I read comments on my Twitter page about how I’m waddling into pilates and I go, ‘wow, that’s a really mean thing to say. I just had a baby three weeks ago!’ There is a little bit of pressure but most of it comes from me.”

On how Luca got his name…
“We don’t have any rhyme or reason about why we chose that name. We had the names Cruz and Luca on our list with some others and decided at the very last minute what it was going to be. There is no good story behind it, which is kind of sad. We just liked the way it sounded together. We were thinking of Cruz as a first name and were just mixing and matching it with things on our list and came up with it. We liked the name Luke too but we wanted to do something different — but not crazy. Afterwards we found out his name means ‘bringer of light.’ I love that.”

On baby number two…
“To be totally honest, I had a really easy pregnancy and I did enjoy a lot of it. But a part of me isn’t like those women who love being pregnant. I love my baby and I miss that feeling of being attached to him when he’s kicking, but I was so ready to not be pregnant. Right now, I’m focused on being the best mom I can be and when I start working again, I’ll see how I juggle everything. But then again, my sister [Haylie Duff] and I are very close so I want Luca to have someone close [to his age] — but not too close!
