“We’re busy with both of the kids and jobs, and we always say, ‘We will at some point,’ and then life continues to be busy, and we still really like each other, which is good, I guess,” the actress, 35, told Us Weekly exclusively on Friday, April 24, while discussing her partnership with HP. “At some point we will, but certainly now is not the time to have a wedding.”
After waiting several years to tie the knot, Duff made a good point about why the couple would not want to jump the gun now. “You couldn’t have many people there, could you?” she noted, referring to restrictions on large gatherings.
The pair got engaged in April 2014 after more than a year of dating. They welcomed daughters Ryan and Lulu in May 2015 and June 2018, respectively.
As for how Duff and Rosenberg are coping with quarantine, all is well. “We are fortunate that he has a work space upstairs, where he can go up there and focus on his job, and I can work downstairs, and we can have moments to [ourselves] if we need it,” she explained. “We’ve liked this time.”
In fact, the circumstances have allowed the family more time together. “The other night, we went outside as the sun was going down,” she recalled. “We made s’mores, and he’s normally not home that early in the day, so we’ve had a lot more family dinners. We’ve had every meal together, but he’s normally not home for family dinners, so there’s been a lot of really good things too. When we need some space, we just take it.”
Duff later pointed out how unifying the common struggles of the global health crisis have been. “It affects everyone,” she said. “There’s not really anybody that gets to escape what all is happening. We all are affected by it in different ways, and that’s the beautiful part is that we can all support each other because we are all experiencing the same things and in this together.”
One way the 7th Heaven alum is doing her part is by partnering with HP. The tech brand, along with Education.com, Time for Kids, Canva and KiwiCo, recently launched a free online resource which features fun and engaging activities to support families as they adapt to remote learning.
