It's complicated. Hilary Duff said she and estranged husband Mike Comrie are working out their relationship post-separation. The bubbly blonde updated Us Weekly on what's happening with the former NHL player, and co-parenting their 2-year-old son Luca, at the ASPCA Cocktail Party in Beverly Hills, Calif., May 6.
"I don't think Mike would ever go anywhere," Duff, 26, told Us at the event. "I mean, we are really dedicated to taking care of Luca, and we're really good friends who spend a lot of time together." Since announcing their split in January, the two have surprised fans by subsequently taking a "Modern Family" vacation together with their tot, and even rocking out, sans Luca, at the Coachella Music and Arts Festival last month.
"We're not in a rush for anything," the former Disney Channel star explained. "So we're just trying to enjoy our lives and figure out what makes us happy and it's working for us." Though the two aren't technically back together, the parents remain open to seeing what happens before possibly moving forward with their divorce.
"We have Luca as our main priority," Duff reiterated, "but we do care a lot about each other. We're adults and we're making our way through life. Sometimes you do that together and apart and we're gonna be and we're going to do it in the most peaceful way possible."

The parents have had their hands full in recent months now that baby Luca is a toddler! "He's two!" Duff gushed of her baby boy. "So he definitely has a strong personality!" Laughing, she recalled, "He opened his own door today, I couldn't believe it! I was like, 'Wow, when did that happen?' Like when he can actually twist the doorknob and push the door open?"
Duff added to Us that she empathizes with her "spirited" child. "He's a little frustrated that he can't fully express what he wants," she explained. "We're still telling him what to do at certain points of the day when he's like, 'That's not what I want!' So I would say spirited is a great word [to describe Luca]. For the most part he has a really great demeanor. He loves to share and he's a kind kid."
Along with mommy-hood, Duff has also been busy helping big sister Haylie plan her upcoming wedding to Matt Rosenberg. "Actually we just started," Duff revealed. "We don't have a date or anything, but she's starting to throw out ideas for venues and she's obsessed with Pinterest. It's exciting."
The Duff family, it turns out, approves of entrepreneur Rosenberg for 29-year-old Haylie. "We really love him," Hilary gushed to Us. "He's a great guy -- his name is Matt -- and we think it's going to be beautiful."
