Reports suggesting newlywed Hilary Duff is pregnant with her first child are refusing to go away, even though the actress/singer dismissed rumors over the weekend.
Now, Star magazine is reporting the 23-year-old former Lizzie McGuire star and Canadian ice hockey player Mike Comrie are set to become parents, just months after becoming husband and wife in August.
A close friend tells the tabloid, "They're ecstatic. They weren't actively trying to conceive but agreed that if it happened, it happened."
Duff has made no secret of her desire to have a brood of her own, admitting she was "excited" at the prospect of having kids with Comrie because he comes from "a really big family."
Representatives for the stars had yet to comment on the report as WENN went to press.
