New mom Hilary Duff is learning the problematic side of being a celebrity and having a baby while trying to dodge paparazzi.
"It's hard having a baby and having paparazzi follow you all around all the time," Duff told Yahoo! News. "I haven't had to explain it to my son yet, what's going on. For the most part they respect me and they respect my space, but it's tough to always be photographed."
Duff's husband is former professional hockey player Mike Comrie, so celebrity is definitely something baby Luca will have to get used to.
"I'm at a really fun stage right now," she says, speaking on being content with her life. "My son is 13 months, so we just celebrated his first birthday. He's running around everywhere. He knows what he wants and what he doesn't like and really has a personality now."
The 25-year-old former Disney star, said she enjoys keeping active and only works on roles that she deems "worth missing time" with her son, reports UPI.
Her latest role was in the season finale of "Two and a Half Men," where she said the timing was perfect.
"I would get to go be with my son at the park and be finished by three o'clock in the afternoon," she said.
Another problem she had at the beginning of motherhood was losing weight, according to WebProNews. However, she was proud of the fact she was able to lose 50 pounds post-baby, and documented it on her Instagram account.
Duff said she also has plans of returning to the recording studio. With three studio albums and one Christmas album under her belt, the 2000s were huge for Duff in acting and performing.
"I want to work on my music, but it's tough to be pulled away from Luca. Whatever I work on, I want it to be worth missing time with him," she said in her interview with Yahoo.
The former teen sensation is currently working Johnson Baby Cares to help mothers maintain a positive attitude about parenting.
"It's all about giving moms the reassurance and the support and the confidence that they need," she said.
Duff is most known for her hit Disney show "Lizzie McGuire." It aired from 2001 to 2004.
Her most know movie roles are "A Cinderella Story" and "Cheaper by the Dozen."
