This might be why Hilary Duff stopped promoting Breathe In. Breathe Out.

Or it could be because she wasn’t feeling it, but we’ll never know.

Hilary Duff released a picture-perfect pop album this year, which saw contributions from Matthew Koma, Ian Kirkpatrick and Kendal Schmidt, however after only a handful of televised performances and interviews, the era came to an abrupt end. She even cancelled several scheduled appearances / performances due to alleged scheduling conflicts with filming Younger on TV Land.

We may have your answer. Duff says in her new interview with Redbook she feels guilty when wrapped up with work because it takes away from spending time with her 3-year-old son Luca.

“It’s hard to say that you really can have it all,” she says. “I think you can to a certain degree, but fully loaded, pedal-all-the-way-down is tough. You’re missing out on something, either on the career or on the family. When I’m really busy with work, I feel extremely guilty.”

Duff also touched on several other pressing issues, like the press coverage towards her post-baby body: “After I had Luca, I went out to, like, the breast-pump store—I was still huge—and I just had a comfortable outfit on. And the next day [in the tabloids] it was like, “Hilary debuts post-baby bod!” And I was like, “That’s not a debut! That’s an errand!” It was such a happy time that honestly I didn’t care; it wasn’t until later that I realized how mean and invasive it was.”

And if she’ll ever re-marry: “I don’t want to say I wouldn’t get married again, but it’s not important to me. I don’t feel I would need to be married to have another child. If I felt strongly enough toward someone or if someone felt strongly about it, I might say okay. But it’s not essential.”

Justice for BI.BO.
