Hilary Duff on How Pregnancy Is a Journey

Hilary Duff Gave a Shoutout to All the Moms Who Make Pregnancy Look "Effortless"

Hilary Duff knows that being pregnant is a wonderful, life-changing experience, but in a recent Instagram post, she explained that it's not always sunshine and rainbows — and we're seriously loving her honest perspective.

"The boobs are big, the belly is big, the body is big," she wrote. "Man, pregnancy is hard. Giving love to all mamas who make it look effortless . . . this journey is hard as hell and also incredibly special."

Although the Younger star is fully embracing being pregnant for the second time around, she admits carrying a little one has its fair share of challenges.

"Lovely to have a little life inside and to daydream of all the new adventures to come buuuut almost impossible to get my own shoes on," she said. "Sick of getting up nine times a night to pee and looking at this weird body in the mirror that is not my own at the moment. Women are so badass, this was just a note to remind myself and remind others how strong and beautiful you are! WE GOT THIS!"
