Hilary Duff flaunts her flawlessly toned figure in form-fitting swimsuit only a year after child birth
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Hilary Duff’s toned physique and perfect looks have the world swooning as she posed for the cover of Women’s Health Australia for the magazine’s January 2023 issue. The photos showing an amazingly confident Duff come only one year after the birth of her third child, along with admissions of struggling with an eating disorder, with her proudly letting the world know how far she has come.
The pictures had her posing in a monokini as she looked visibly happy. Some other photos have her posing in a bikini of a similar color, with her abs and biceps on display. In the photos, Duff also showed off many of her tattoos, with a tattoo of roses shown on the inside of her right bicep and a bear tattoo on her hipbone. She also has a crescent moon and star and a triangle cut by an arrow inked.
The 'Lizzie McGuire' actress, 35, also has a ‘ride or die’ tattoo inked, which she got along with her friend Alanna Masterson. And it would seem that the star has embraced motherhood proudly as well, with her latest tattoo being of the word ‘mother’ on the back of her neck.
Her interview with the magazine had her talking about her many life experiences, primarily her eating disorder problems and about not being able to be comfortable in her own skin. “Because of my career path, I can’t help but be like, ‘I am on camera and actresses are skinny,’” the star of 'How I Met Your Father' admits in an interview with Women’s Health Australia. “It was horrifying.”
She has slowly but surely learned to love and be proud of her body, as she said, “[I’m] appreciating my health, doing activities that make me feel strong instead of just bettering the outside of my body. Spending time with people that make me feel good and share similar views on health and body positivity and getting enough sleep and balance in my diet.”
"I'm proud of my body," Daily Mail reports that she said at the time. "I've gotten to a place of being peaceful with the changes my body has gone through… I think that at 34 I have just gained a lot of respect for my body. It's taken me all of the places I need to go. It's helped me build a beautiful family. I feel like the older I get, the more confident I get in my own skin. And my body's been many different shapes and sizes and I'm really just fascinated by, one, being a woman. And two, all the changes that your body can go through throughout your lifetime," Duff added.
