Mike Comrie and Hilary Duff are calling it quits
Mike Comrie and Hilary Duff have decided to separate after three years of marriage.
The 33-year-old former NHL player, who retired in 2012 due to a hip injury, and 26-year-old actress made the announcement Jan. 10 and told E! News it was a mutual decision.
Duff took to Twitter soon after to thank those who have supported the couple through their difficult time.
Mike and I are sitting here,we are so appreciative for all of your kindness& well wishes. Not an easy day but we're getting thru it together

"They remain best friends and will continue to be in each others lives," Duff’s representative said in a statement. "They are dedicated to loving and parenting their amazing son, and ask for privacy at this time."
The couple seems to really be on good terms as Duff recently posted a photo of them at Disneyland with their son, Luca, who turns 2 in March.
