Hilary Duff has a new boyfriend and it’s as official as it can get in the 21st Century: it’s Instagram official! When we last checked in with Duff she was coyly filling us in on her relationship with her new BF, Jason Walsh.
She’s remained relatively mum on her relationship with Walsh, with the exception of an interview she did with Fox 5’s Rosanna Scotto, while promoting the new season of her television series, Younger. Duff told Scotto,“We’ve known each other for a really long time and he’s a great guy and we have a lot of fun together.” Awww.
Since the interview, we’ve been waiting for Duff and Walsh to take their relationship public. The wait is over with this picture Duff posted to her Instagram:
But just who is the man worthy of our Lizzie McGuire? Walsh is a personal trainer and owner of the Rise Nation Fitness Studio in Los Angeles, where Duff trains and presumably where the couple met. Walsh is also trainer to celebs like Emma Stone, John Krasinski, Matt Damon and SO many others.
The only other proof of Duff and Walsh’s relationship came from a 4th of July Instagram from Duff:
This is Duff’s first high profile relationship since splitting from ex-husband, former hockey player Mike Comrie, with whom she has a son, Luca. Since the divorce, Duff has remained very candid with her love life and moving on from divorce. She was even the most famous person on Tinder for a while before finding love with Walsh.
Duff also told Redbook earlier this year that she’s not sure if she’ll ever get married again. She told the mag, “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.”
We’re making a wish at the Trevi Fountain that Duff and Walsh have all the happiness in the world!
