Hilary Duff on dating after divorce: ‘I really attract the old men!’

Hilary Duff on Tinder

Every time Hilary Duff travels to Los Angeles, she’s reminded why finding romance isn’t always easy.

“I never think being single sucks until I go out in Los Angeles and the options are terrible,” explained the 29-year-old actress to Redbook. “I really attract the old men!”

The former Disney child star may have since solved that problem. She’s been dating her music producer Matthew Koma for a few months. However, she told the publication that being a divorced parent isn’t always smooth sailing, especially when it comes to co-parenting her son, 4-year-old Luca, with ex-husband, retired professional ice hockey player Mike Comrie.

“Some of my friends tell me, ‘God it must be so nice, you get a break from your kid because you share him,’” she said. “I’m divorced, and it sucks. Well, it did suck for a while; now it’s just normal. But it’s true, I do get a break. I had Luca by myself for a few weeks, no help, when Mike was on the road, and when he got home I was like, ‘He’s yours! Bye!’”

Duff did add that despite her current circumstances, she’s not opposed to having more children — except she’s in no hurry to expand her family anytime soon.

“I’ve gotten over the fact that I’m not going to have a baby that’s close in age with Luca,” she explained. “It sucked when everyone would be like, ‘When are you having another?’ I’d be like, ‘Do you know what’s happening right now? I’m not having another’ You get engaged: ‘When’s the wedding?’ You get married: ‘When’s the baby?’ You have a baby: ‘When’s the next one?’ … I’m cherishing the now. Besides, watch: I’ll probably get some evil spawn of Hilary the next time around.”
