Duff shares her oldest child with her first husband, Mike Comrie, whom she married in 2010 and divorced six years later.

During an interview with Cosmopolitan, the actress noted that, although she is happy being a mother, she still feels the need to have time for herself.

The performer noted, ‘there are times where I’m like, “I need to go and drink too much wine with my girlfriends.” You know what I mean? My husband’s like, “You go, I’ve got the kids.” He could be in quarantine for years more!’

She then spoke about becoming a mother at an early age and expressed that she was happy to take on that role near the beginning of her career.

‘I felt like I was so ready to be a mom. Everyone was like, “Oh. My. God. You’re a baby having a baby.” But I felt like I had done so much and I was so ready for something more,’ the singer said. 

Duff concluded by remarking that she has always maintained a positive outlook on life and that she is proud of how far she has come as an individual.

 She said, ‘I’ve had a lot of things to overcome but I feel very lucky to have not had to deal with depression. I wake up happy. I’ve always been like, “Today’s the day! What are we doing?!”‘
