Hilary Duff is once again dazzling the social media world—particularly her fans on Instagram—with the sunny and beautiful pictures from her recent New Year’s vacation in Hawaii. She spent Christmas in cold, and snowy Edmonton, Alberta because that is where her ex-husband, hockey player Mike Comrie, resides. The former couple divorced in January of 2016, but remain on friendly terms and they are maintaining a cordial relationship for the sake of their young son, Luca.
Oddly enough, Luca is not seen in any of the vacation photos or Snapchat videos posted on Hilary Duff’s Instagram account. Instead, she is seen frolicking on the beach and in the water park in a swanky retro black-and-white striped swimsuit with her adorable niece, Ryan. Presumably, her sister Haley Duff is the one behind the camera capturing all of these fun and memorable moments in paradise.
Hilary Duff Has Fun in the Sun
Despite the fact that Hilary Duff just recently parted ways with her most recent boyfriend of two months, Jason Walsh, it seems like she has already found a way to look on the bright side and enjoy life to the fullest. Anyone would move on just as quickly if they had the comfort of the stunning island of Kaui as a backdrop to get over heartbreak. It is Jason’s loss, though, because judging from the photos shared online, Hilary Duff’s beauty knows no bounds. It looks like she is in the best shape of her life and things will only get better for the 29-year-old former Disney star.
She already has very high positive hopes for the new year as she posted a semi-prophetic photo where she wrote, “Everything is going to be awesome!” in the sand on the beach, and there is no reason why that cannot come true for her. After all, she even managed to make Ford’s Top 30 Under 30 list in 2016, and she is also starring in the acclaimed series Younger on TV Land. The show is currently in its 3rd season and is still going strong. To that end, there is so much in store for the young star, even though a lot of online trolls and haters have commented that she is a ‘has-been’ and is no longer relevant in the entertainment industry.
This could not be further from the truth, though, because Hilary Duff is still a beloved actress and she will always be associated with her role as Lizzie McGuire. That show created fond memories for many preteens and teens in the early 2000’s, and since the series ended in 2004, there were several repeats of it shown on television. Despite what naysayers think, Hilary Duff’s career is on an extremely positive trajectory and her future is just as bright as the sun she was tanning under in Hawaii.
