Expectant songstress Hilary Duff was spotted grabbing a bite to eat with her Canadian hockey player hubby Mike Comrie in San Fernando Valley, Calif. on Monday (October 24).
The pop star – who is expecting a baby boy early next year – recently opened up about her feelings of isolation growing up as a child star and doesn’t want her son to follow down the same path.
“(I missed out on) stupid things like passing notes in school and having a locker and riding the bus, I mean, really stupid things,” the former Disney star reveals. “Once I started touring… my life… was very isolated, you know? I lost a lot of my friends. I was on a totally different playing field than anybody else. And I grew up a lot faster, and I think that it definitely put me in a different place. But I wouldn’t trade it.”
Although she admits to having an amazing life, Hilary hopes her son will not pursue a career in the limelight.

I don’t think there’s a way to stop it – I think kids know what they want but I just pray to God that’s not what he (my son) wants. From when I started to now, the industry is so different. I mean, there’s such an obsession with people’s private lives that I really don’t think was there before. These shows about digging into people’s lives and wanting to embarrass everybody and show that, like, we’re human beings, too. It’s just so invasive, and it’s just a different business than it used to be.”
