Hilary Duff has shared the screen with Steve Martin, Blake Lively, Taylor Lautner, and others — but that pales in comparison to sharing her life with son Luca, 13 months. Speaking about her adorable tot in an interview with the TODAY show on Wednesday, May 1, the proud mom gushed that she can't get enough of her first (and only) child.
"I love it. I'm honestly obsessed with it," the 25-year-old Lizzie McGuire alum said of motherhood. "It's very humbling. It's all about him…It's his world. We're just living in it."
"I feel like my heart just swelled," she added. "I didn't know I could love something so much. And that keeps getting more intense as he grows older."
The singer/actress — who'll next appear as Ashton Kutcher's girlfriend on the season finale of Two and a Half Men — welcomed little Luca in March 2012 with husband Mike Comrie. In the year since, she's gained "a lot of confidence," not just as a mom but as a person.
"A lot of intuition just kicks in that you maybe didn't know you had before," she explained. "And you obviously learn a lot of patience!"
That intuition has changed the way she thinks about her career. With many of Luca's milestones still ahead of him, Duff says she's now a little more "choosy" about the projects she takes on. "I basically don't want to leave the house anymore," she said. "I don't want to miss anything!"
