“I don’t really have a plan. I’ve lived a very big life, and I don’t feel my age, and I feel like I was born to be a mother,” the actress says.
“Motherhood is the most beautiful, exciting thing, and there’s nothing that I feel like I can’t accomplish while having children in my life. I would sacrifice having more years of being wherever I want whenever I want for years with my kids,” she adds.
The “Nashville” star also opens up about how she escaped the fate of so many child stars before here (note: Lindsay are you reading this?)
“I came up in the Messy Generation,” she told the mag, out April 9. “The generation of the disaster child.
“It’s not that I didn’t go to clubs, have my picture taken,” she added. “I was 16 years old. I was experimenting just like any kid. But I had friends and family around me to yank me back when I was heading in the wrong direction. ”
“The thing that really saved me was that I still had that healthy fear of my parents — I still had a midnight curfew at 18!”
Hayden also says that she is flawed, much like the rest of us.
“I will never say that I’m perfect; I will never pretend to be perfect,” she said. “That’s just unrealistic. You’re kind of unexpectedly put in this position of becoming a role model; that’s not something you choose.”
The stunning star has been pictured looking more in love than ever with Ukrainian athlete, Wladimir, 37, as they enjoyed Easter on the beach in Miami over the weekend.
A little more than a month has passed since Hilary Duff welcomed son Luca into the world, and the new mom is already becoming a master at motherhood! In the new issue of Life & Style — on newsstands now — Hilary reveals her favorite moments with little Luca, her ‘fascination’ with changing diapers and what parental life is like for her and husband Mike Comrie!
Not so special for most parents? Changing diapers. But Hilary confides that the process “fascinates” her. “I’m so interested to see what’s inside the diaper,” Hilary tells Life & Style. “If my husband changes him, I’m like, ‘Oh, what did we get?’ It’s bizarre!” Although Mike, 31, isn’t quite the diaper detective, he has pleasantly surprised his wife with his devotion to their son.
“When Mike comes home, he says, ‘Give me the baby; you’ve had him all day,’” shares Hilary (who’s also busy working with Johnson’s Baby Care campaign to help families affected by natural disasters). “He tells me, ‘I can’t stop kissing him; I’m sure it must bug him, but I can’t stop.’”
“When you’re single, you can pretty much do what you want all day, but Luca eats every three hours,” the 24-year-old star tells Life & Style. “So then I have about an hour to run errands and get in a workout before I have to run back and feed the baby.”
Luckily, Hilary doesn’t mind. Though she initially found breast-feeding “tough,” it’s become a favorite time with her little guy. “We’ve bonded a lot during feeding. It’s very, very special.”
