Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E) – On Saturday, a day after announcing her separation from husband Mike Comrie, singer-actress Hilary Duff was spotted all smiles at a park in Los Angeles together with her son Luca.
The casually dressed Duff pushed young Luca in the swing and then the mother-son duo played in the grass.
On Friday, Duff’s representative released a statement to People about the breakup she and the former NHL superstar have “have mutually decided [upon] an amicable separation.”
The statement continues, “They remain best friends and will continue to be in each other’s lives. They are dedicated to loving and parenting their amazing son, and ask for privacy at this time.”
Meanwhile, later that day, Duff posted on Twitter, “Mike and I are sitting here, we are so appreciative for all of your kindness& well wishes. Not an easy day but we’re getting thru it together.”
Duff, 26, and Comrie, 33, tied the knot in August 2010 in an intimate ceremony at the Mediterranean Villa La Quinta in Santa Barbara in California. They have a son together, Luca, who is 22 months old.
No further details are available, but sources close to the former couple, who tried to save their relationship by attending couples’ therapy, assert that the two are “better as friends,” and that they have decided on co-parenting their child.
