Hilary Duff may have just given birth to her baby boy Luca Cruz on March 20, but she already has baby no. 2 plans on her mind!
The former Disney star recently opened up to Parade.com in which she discusses dealing with mean Twitter comments about her post-baby body, how parenthood has helped her relationship with husband Mike Comrie, and how they came up with the name Luca Cruz.
Hilary definitely feels the pressure to get her post-baby body back into the shape it once was. Recently, we spotted the new mom leaving a pilates class sans makeup! And we’ll be honest – she looks fantastic!
“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.”
Hilary uber happy spending her down time with her new baby boy. In fact, Duff loves Luca so much that she’s often sharing a number of photos of the new addition on twitter!
So where did the name Luca Cruz come from? Hilary says:
“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.”
And in case you’re wondering how long it’ll take for Hilary to bring about baby no. 2, she gave Parade the answer! She said:
“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!
