In her interview with the magazine, the 34-year old 'How I Met Your Mother' star also spoke of her love of tattoos and getting inked. She said she has over 20 designs across her arms and other body parts. These tattoos mostly have an earthy theme, other than a few fun designs that are matching tattoos with her friends. The most recent addition to her canvas is the word 'mother' in a delicate font on her neck.

Duff added, "It’s taken me all the places I need to go, it’s helped me build a beautiful family." Sharing on how she takes care and makes time, Duff said, "We bust our ass to get our bodies in shape and to look the best we can. We get facials and Botox and our hair done and highlights and brows and lash lifts and all this s—t." she highlighted the importance of keeping everthing in sync and making sure things are going well inside-out. She shared how meditation is a constant part of her self-care routine.

That’s the most important part of the system.” The post was captioned, " I knew doing this would terrify me and I was right! @womenshealthmag had the most lovely all-women shoot and I actually had the best time. I felt strong and beautiful and laughed a lot getting into some of these poses without my high waisted mom jeans and oversized whatever I normally wear. Thank you to everyone who normalized this day for me."
