Hilary Duff, Mike Comrie Split: ‘Not an Easy Day’

After three years of marriage, Duff and former hockey player husband separate.

After three years of marriage, Hilary Duff and husband Mike Comrie have decide to call it quits.

Duff and her former professional hockey player husband announced their split on Friday (January 9) telling E! News that the mutual decision was “amicable.”

“They remain best friends and will continue to be in each other’s lives,” Duff’s representative said in a statement. “They are dedicated to loving and parenting their amazing son, and ask for privacy at this time.”

Shortly after, Duff took to Twitter, alongside Comrie, who she wed in 2010, to thank their fans for their support.

“Mike and I are sitting here,we are so appreciative for all of your kindness& well wishes,” she tweeted. “Not an easy day but we’re getting thru it together.”

The couple began dating in 2007. They have one son, Luca Cruz Comrie, who turns two in March.

The couple seem to still be on good terms, Duff recently shared a photo of herself along with Comrie and Luca as they “braved” Disneyland shortly before the New Year.

Duff has recently been spending time back in the studio working on the follow-up to her 2007 album, Dignity. Earlier this week, Duff posted a photo of a late night studio session working on song titled, “Hurts.”

Back in 2011, shortly before her baby was born, Duff spoke to MTV News about her return to the music scene.

“Before I got pregnant I was really starting to work on a new record,” Duff said. “I hadn’t gotten into the studio yet, but was meeting with lots of people and kind of just figuring out where I fit now and what direction I want to go in. I still want to do that.”
