7 Things That Prove Hilary Duff Escaped The Insanity That is Child Stardom Unscathed

Could Hilary Duff be the only Disney star that hasn't gone totally crazy? Miley, Raven, Lindsay, they've all a little bit lost their minds. Not Hilary Duff, though. Since her Lizzie McGuire Days, she's stayed grounded and humble.

To A Cinderella Story:

To her current show Younger:


Duff has proven time and time again that she is a rare breed: a successful child-star-turned adult.

These are just some of the reasons why she's our favorite...

1. She's a great mom.

In 2010, Duff married NHL star Mike Comrie, and two years later they welcomed a baby boy named Luca Cruz Comrie.

Duff always puts her son first, and makes sure the two share special moments together.

These are the days I will never forget ❤️

Though the couple split in 2016, they still co-parent together and remain on good terms. Duff has even posted cute videos of Comrie on her Instagram.

2. She follows her dreams.

Hilary Duff has been vocal about wanting to be a singer and actress since she was a young girl. Now, she's still doing both those things. Her latest album, Breathe In. Breathe Out. was her fifth studio album, released in 2015.

She is also still acting, with her new show Younger becoming an instant classic.

4. She has no time for body-shamers.

Hilary Duff was a great role model for us as kids, because she was never unhealthily thin. She looked like an "average" girl and rocked it. It seems people forgot this, and when a photo surfaced of her looking amazing on the set of Younger, people lost it.
