Widely labeled as a teen idol after successful role in the Disney Channel series Lizzie McGuire (2001– 2004), Hilary Duff has also enhanced her popularity by the great involvement in singing. Her debut album was in 2002, but the second record Metamorphosis (2003) gained her recognition, which went triple-platinum, topped the Billboard 200 and sold over three million copies in the United States alone.
Being the second daughter of a housewife and a music producer, Hilary Duff always wanted to be like her elder sister, Haylie Duff. She took ballet, acting and singing lessons just because her sister did so. During initial acting years, Duff primarily played minor roles in True Women (1997) and Playing by Heart (1998). She got the first turning point in Hollywood when taking the lead role of Wendy in Casper Meets Wendy, based on the Harvey Comics characters.
On August 14, 2010, Duff married her long-time boyfriend, Mike Comrie, a professional hockey player. On March 20, 2012, the couple gave birth to their first son, Luca Cruz Comrie. But 2 year later, in January 2014, they announced to split up and co-parent the boy.
