The Actress Has Two Kids From Two Marriages

Hilary Duff has had many publicized relationships mostly with co-stars, but she has only been married twice and each of the two marriages produced a kid. Her first marriage was with a Canadian NHL star Mike Comrie. The couple started dating in 2007 and announced their engagement three years later in February 2010 while their wedding held on August 14, 2010, in Santa Barbara, California.

Born as Michael William Comrie on September 11, 1980, in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, Hilary Duff’s first husband was 7 years older than her. He had been playing in the National Hockey League for the past 11 years as of when they got married but retired two years into the marriage after undergoing hip surgery for the third time.

Mike’s 12-season long NHL career was spent with 6 teams, namely, Edmonton Oilers (4 seasons), Philadelphia Flyers (1 season), Phoenix Coyotes (2 seasons), Ottawa Senators (2 seasons), New York Islanders (2 seasons), and Pittsburgh Penguins (1 season). He also spent 1 season with a Swedish Hockey League team called Färjestad Bollklubb. Before then, he had played college ice hockey at the University of Michigan.

The marriage between Hilary Duff and the athlete began to fall apart in 2014, just 4 years after it was contracted. Then, their divorce was amicably finalized in February 2016. The marriage produced a son named Luca Cruz Comrie who was born in March 2012.

The pair had signed a prenuptial agreement. So, asset sharing was not a problem. While neither received spousal support, Hilary paid Comrie $2.5 million as his share of their Beverly Hills mansion which she got to keep. Duff also retained ownership of a mobile home in Malibu. In addition to the cash, Comrie got to keep the Bentley, Mercedes, and Jewelry. They co-parent Luca.

Hilary Duff’s Second Husband Is an Entertainer

Three years after she was fully out of her first marriage, Hilary Duff was a bride again in a backyard ceremony in December 2019. The wedding held between her and the singer-songwriter, DJ, and record producer Matthew Bair (popularly known as Matthew Koma).

Before the wedding, however, the couple had been in a relationship since the beginning of 2017. They even welcomed a daughter together in October 2018 before their engagement seven months later. Banks Violet Bair is the name of the child.

Hilary Duff’s second husband has penned several hit songs such as Zedd’s Grammy-winning song Clarity. Koma also co-wrote the title track of Hilary Duff’s album titled Breathe In. Breathe Out.

How The Actress Achieved Her $25 Million Net Worth

According to various reports, Hilary Duff’s net worth is a massive $25 million. That is not surprising when you consider the fact that her acting career was launched at a very young age. She ranked 98th on Forbes’ Celebrity 100 list in 2007 when she was 20. She got the ranking after earning a whopping $12 million that year.

The actress went ahead to make Forbes’ 30 Under 30 Hollywood and Entertainment list 10 years later. How did she become such a big earner?

She Started with Modeling and Minor Acting Roles

Hilary began her journey into the world of entertainment by appearing in TV commercials and modeling for numerous clothing brands. Although she also took acting roles then, during the first 4 years, she received only minor and uncredited roles.

After landing her first major role in the 1997 film Casper Meets Wendy, Hilary’s acting prowess quickly gained acclaim in the industry. She later bagged the title role in the Disney TV series Lizzie McGuire, which became her ultimate breakthrough as an actress. During the two seasons and 65 episodes of the show, it reportedly recorded an average of 2.3 million viewers per episode. It lasted from 2001 to 2004 and birthed a 2003 film adaptation which grossed $55.5 million from a $17 million budget. Hilary Duff reportedly earned $15,000 per episode of the TV series and $1 million for the theatrical release.

Disney also capitalized on the success of the series to release a line of merchandise; from dolls to video games, soundtracks, and books, all of which reportedly made an estimated $100 million.

Since her breakthrough, Hilary Duff has continued to scoop leading roles in movies and TV projects.
