Hilary Duff Confirms She’s Dating Her Personal Trainer, Jason Walsh
Hilary Duff is back in the dating game.
After denying the stories earlier this year, the former Lizzie Mcguire star finally admitted to casually dating her hunky personal trainer Jason Walsh.
A source told E! News, "The pair have been spending a lot of time with each other in recent months, both in the gym and out at various restaurants to enjoy some fine dining, and it seems this budding romance began as a friendship."
The duo were most recently spotted on a dinner date at Pizzeria il Fico in Los Angeles sharing some pizza while watching an NBA game.
An insider said, "They looked like they were having fun because the game was crazy but I didn't notice them acting affectionate or anything like that. They were just watching and cheering with everybody in the restaurant."
Sources close to the starlet believe she is trying to keep this budding romance under wraps for the sake of her son Luca, of whom she shares custody with her ex Mike Comrie.
The 28-year-old actress officially divorced the retired hockey player in February after six years of marriage and Hilary claims they still remain amicable.
She said recently, "We are good friends and we laugh a lot. And we have a great communication and we share pictures when one is not with Luca. He's great, we are great and we keep on trucking.”
She continued, “Mike and I were very in love when we met. We both really wanted to get married.
“I'd been working since the age of 11 or 12, so making that choice at a young age seemed right for me. Maybe it wasn't, but we spent the majority of our time together really happy."
Will Hilary and Mike still be buddies once she starts bringing her new man candy around? Only time will tell, folks...
