Hilary Duff is off the market!
The “Younger” actress has confirmed that she is dating her trainer, Jason Walsh, during an appearance on “Good Day New York.”
Speaking of the new relationship, Duff said: “We have [found a little ‘like’ with each other]. We’ve known each other for a really long time and he’s a great guy and we have a lot of fun together. It’s nice to have that excitement in my life.”
Prior to the admission, the two had been fueling rumors that they are dating. Speculations started in June and were strengthened when the two were spotted holding hands in New York on Saturday. A source reportedly close to the two told Us Weekly in June that they are serious about their relationship and that Duff is “really into him.”
Rumors about the two started swirling a month after Duff was photographed sharing a kiss with ex-husband Mike Comrie, sparking reconciliation rumors. Duff and Comrie got married in 2010. They announced their split in 2014. Duff was reportedly hoping to reconcile with her ex but, she later decided otherwise when she learned that Comrie drunkenly flirted with a waitress. Their divorce was finalized in February 2016.
Despite having a new kind of “excitement in [her] life,” Duff maintains that her main priority is her son with Comrie, Luca.
“Honestly, I’m so pumped to be a soccer mom and making lunches to pack to school and not being on anybody else’s schedule for a minute,” the actress told E! News about her son’s future endeavors.
Duff also said that she’s willing to compromise her music career in order to be with her son more often.
“I love music, it’s in me, it’s a part of me but I look at my kid and go, ‘You’re a teenager already,’” she said. “It’s scary to think time is going by so fast and I want to be present for all of that.”
Meanwhile, fans can see more of Duff on “Younger,” which airs Wednesdays at 10 p.m. on TV Land.
