Hilary Duff loves being a mom, and that includes her post-baby body

Hilary Duff‘s 4-year-old son Luca is pretty much the star of her Instagram. The actress is always posting photos of the duo in action and that’s because, as Hilary explained to Today.com, the two have a special bond that’s completely changed her life.

He only makes every day matter so much more and the joy that I feel, the purpose, everything is so much more heightened,” she gushed. “It’s just, he’s really amazing.”

That’s why the 28-year-old makes an effort to unplug after a crazy week so she and Luca can spend some quality time together, playing with legos, going to the park, and pretty much every other adorable activity that’s so beautifully documented on her Instagram.

Their favorite thing to do? Swimming, especially because Hilary doesn’t let the pressures of a “post-baby body” get to her.

I don’t care to look absolutely perfect in a bathing suit,” she said. “I’m a normal girl. I’m strong. I’m fit. I feel good about myself after I’ve had a baby.

Plus, Hilary insisted that it’s totally okay to not feel good, or to accept that things could be better.

“I go through ups and downs, being like, ‘Damn, I’m fit right now’ and ‘OK, I’m letting things slide a little’ and I’m totally fine with that.”

That’s such a refreshing attitude, and one that means she can focus her attention on what really matters: her son. We’re so happy that, despite her busy schedule, Hilary is always able to put Luca first, and that being a mother reminds her that she’s awesome no matter what.
