The 26 year-old actress has separated from husband Mike Cormie after three years of marriage.
Duff's rep first confirmed their split to E!News.
"Hilary Duff and husband Mike Comrie have mutually decided to an amicable separation," Duff's rep said.
"They remain best friends and will continue to be in each other's lives. They are dedicated to loving and parenting their amazing son, and ask for privacy at this time."
The report also states the pair, who attended couple's therapy to fix their marriage, simply fell out of love over time and their separation didn't involve any conflict.

The 'Lizzie Maguire' star has always praised her soon-to-be ex-husband in public and openly expressed her love for him.
In a 2009 interview she said, "I've never met anyone who can say a bad word about him. He's generous, caring and sunny. We just laugh our heads off."
Duff also gushed about the former ice hockey player's parenting skills, "He's an amazing father," she said. "He's so patient and loving and involved. He's all the things that I knew that he would be."
